The way I see it, pain is simply blocked, non-moving energy. This can be caused by a very physical incident – broken bones, ruptures, or an accumulation of some sort of mass at a particular spot. When the pain is not caused by one of these physical problems, then in my opinion, the cause can be found on an emotional level. This is where emotional healing and energy healing come into play. I would then ask your body to tell me, or you, what this is about and we would begin the process of getting the blocked energy to move.
