Reply To: Emotional Trauma
I view emotional trauma as a source of neurological (electrical) data that can become focused in certain parts of the body, in much the same manner as a physical injury. This can be discerned by the behavior of the patient, or due to the fact that the PR’s re-occur or do not respond to reasonable treatment. One additional way that I have differentiated these primaries is by scanning about 10-16 cm. from that part of the body. In these cases, the tension created by this data can predispose to physical injury or prevent resolution.
Bringing the possibility of the emotional (stress) component to the awareness of the patient, using the breathing/visualization (‘vacation spot’) exercise, may be helpful in reducing this source of tension and open the person to possible constructive intervention and/or solutions.
