Pain Body Awakens Bliss Body Taoist Bodywork is a deep dive into your relationship with pain as the highly skilled and experienced practitioners know exactly how far to push into resistance to connect with the energetics that cause pain and activate release.
The Pakua Tao Spa in Tao Garden near Chiang Mai is a nature temple of waterfalls with a circular stream around a central fountain with bridges to the six session healing temples. I love to go early and listen to the sound of water and bathe in sunlight while butterflies and bird song lift my heart song.
Two weeks of Pain Body body work softens, opens, releases and heals layers of physical, emotional and mental tensions and most of all residue recovery from my broken hand and arm accident 3 years ago. Hand and arm healed but the shock effect on my right side was deeper. I am fortunate to connect with someone just right for my process with a variety of sessions tuned to my unique body healing needs:
Chi Nei Tsang focuses finger pressure into specific points in the abdomen. ‘How can this hurt so much?” you ask, and then soon the pain is less and then you can maintain open nerve and muscular connections to body organs with self massage in daily life.
Life Force opens the lungs like wings to breathe in lightness and gratitude. Head, Neck, Shoulders specific work balances leg and pelvic work release . Muscular tension in neck and injured right shoulder lets go day by day.
Tendon release on long bones is Pain Body intense, but I relax and breathe and it passes and as the days go by I become soft in a way I usually only dream of being in my Bliss Body. Further Taoist practice daily of hitting the bones and body with a small bean bag – better than the bamboo sticks as it is soft yet firm and shapes to the body – does wonders to energise, clear and awaken the bones and meridian life energies.
During my Self Healing from breast cancer in the 1970’s, when I worked on my Reflexology spleen point in my left foot that felt like a piece of jagged glass for two years before it finally dissolved. For the last 12 years I have worked with a body roller and a special ball on my back, hips and long leg bones, and I take them the ball and roller with me on any travels. Facing pain and allowing releasing awakens potent life energy. Bliss Body is another name for feeling very good! Try it sometime!
Rolfing sessions in the 1980’s in Hampstead, England opened pain vortexes and released long held patterns of habit, injury and tension, I realised there was no purpose in reaction as the beneficial edge of pain touch sensation was over so quickly and I wanted to be free of body limitations. The sensation we call pain from these deep focused pressure touches is a deep ache of pressure sensation that focuses attention to soreness, and if you pay attention it actually feels good.
There are highly charged sore places in each person, or ones arise for various reasons. When I work on myself I seek the charged places, clear them and the holy shifts feel good as energy moves, creating beneficial well being.
It is time to shift pain from something to medicate with alcohol or drugs and escape from with entertainments or indulgences. Facing the reality of pain, taking responsibility, asking for support and learning self therapies begins the path to co-creating health and vitality with your body throughout your life.
