Sometimes I find myself working on a patient that I have not seen in several years. While my hands are gently kneading the muscle tissues and offering pressure along their spine, suddenly my hands become flooded with memories of how this person’s body felt under my hands, years before...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: How does energy medicine "work?" Is there an energy field composed of information about your past traumas and injuries? Is this the information an energy therapist accesses to facilitate the healing process? Craig Weiner, DC, a health care practitioner for 25 years as a doctor of chiropractic, certified massage therapist and EFT practitioner, explores the potential of accessing this cellular memory - this field of possibilities - that enables an individual opportunities for healing.

Standard western medicine diagnoses headaches according to type or physical causes: cluster headaches (headaches grouped together in the same day of over several weeks), tension headaches (due to tight muscles in the neck and base of the head), sinus headaches, headaches due to head trauma or migraine headaches (severe pain, often accompanied by nausea and seeing auras). These different types of headaches are all basically treated in the same manner, using weaker or stronger analgesic drugs to provide symptomatic relief of pain. The problem is that this symptomatic approach to treatment does not address the root cause of the disease. Many patients suffer for years, decades or even lifelong with pain, that may temporarily abate with medication, but never completely resolves...
Editor's Note from Meagan Hughes: From Woman to Woman is a collaborative project between Musicians without Borders (Netherlands) and Snaga Žene (meaning 'Women Power') based in Bośnia i Hercegovina. The project uses music to address severe, persistent war-related trauma among women in Eastern Bosnia. More specifically, From Woman to Woman introduces the use of the voice and the body - singing and body percussion in the broadest sense of the word - as a powerful supplement to existing medical and psychosocial support programs. http://www.musicianswithoutborders.org

What is it about writing that produces the benefits? Pennebaker believes it is more than just the venting or the expressing of strong emotions that help people change. The research shows that the difference is linked to the way people think about the traumatic event, their emotions, and themselves. It seems that writing helps people create a coherent, reasoned story, leading to new meaning and understanding of the given situation...

The would-be shaman has to pass through the experience of madness without getting stuck in it. In the experience of madness the shaman descends into the underworld of the unconscious, where they have to come to terms with the darker parts of their being...

I tried to explain to the psychiatrists that I WAS sick, however, but just not in the way they were imagining. I had a creative, psychological illness, which is to say that my seeming madness was an expression of my creative self, alchemically transforming an underlying perturbance in the field of consciousness so as to heal itself...

When pregnant, your new baby should be many things to you, but it shouldn't be a pain in the...pelvis! Outside of having a major trauma, such as a fall or car accident, symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), is most commonly associated with being pregnant. Up to a third of pregnant women are affected with this and around one in four women have pain up to four months postpartum, with some even up to twelve months after the birth...
Editor´s Note from Abbey Denaro: As a woman's body changes during pregnancy, pain often accompanies other physical changes. Among them is symphysis pubis dysfunction. Read Dr. Aimee's article to find out if you have this dysfunction and what you can do about it.

In 1981 I spontaneously went into such an ecstatic state that I was hospitalized by what I call the “anti-bliss patrol.” The authorities had become alerted because I was simply unable to restrain my enthusiasm at the “good news” that was beginning to reveal itself to me about the nature of reality...
