From our point of view, pain is a blockage in the tissue of the body and has to be removed successfully.
These stagnations can occur on different levels, in the qi, blood and lymph flow as well as in the flow of other body fluids. They block the very important exchange of information, communication, in the body.
The emotions can also be stagnant and the underlying complaints can be.
For me as a therapist, it is important to understand how these blockages came about in order to be able to derive an efficient and sustainable therapy.
A thorough anamnesis discussion is very important before a series of treatments, because the cause of chronic complaints is almost NEVER where the pain is.
