My client Joanie was in a serious car accident. She called to tell me she has a pin in her shoulder and a cast on her leg and lots of bruises. I’m going to visit her in the hospital later. She wants to show me her injuries.
Her big question to me was whether her nerves would be permanently damaged. I asked her if it hurts. She said, “Yes. A lot.”
I said, “That’s good. Not good for you that it hurts but that means your nerves are working. Lack of sensation is not good. Pain is good.”
Pain is a message that something isn’t right. Sometimes the message means something as simple as, “Hey, you have muscles that are out of balance. Do something.” Sometimes it means you have just been bounced all around in an accident.
And bodies heal all the time. It will take a while for Joanie’s bruises and breaks to heal. But they will.
When she is all healed (or mostly there) I will be able to work with her again and massage the injured tissues. Massage is a powerful tool to aid in healing all sorts of injuries and pain and getting things back to normal.
Will Joanie be 100% back to normal when she heals?
I don’t know.
But I will tell her that she will. Why?
Because if her mind believes me, her body can follow.
Your body is remarkable. It has tremendous abilities to heal. Sometimes it needs a little help or direction.
When you understand how logical your body is and the reasons for your pain, you can get rid of it. Honest!
