Please Rate , Review, & Follow this podcast.
This episode continues pain science education of fibromyalgia.
Because pain involves both the mind and the body, mind-body therapies may have the capacity to alleviate pain by changing the way you perceive it. If you've been in pain for a while, your brain may have rewired itself to perceive pain signals even after the signals aren't being sent anymore.
The body-mind techniques, including somatic, guide patients to focus on their underlying physical sensations.
Somatic work is a great addition to traditional psychotherapy.
I recommend doing both cognitive and somatic work to help alleviate pain and other fibro symptoms. Somatic work relies on body awareness and physiological regulation.
Several somatic techniques help specifically well patients with pain and trauma. This episode focuses on somatic tracking as an example of using somatic work to help with pain and healing.
