Emotions & Their Effect On Pain
EMO, EFT and other therapies are well known for their abilities of helping people deal with negative emotions, but many people are sceptical of their ability to help relieve physical pain.
“Emotions -- or mood -- can alter how we react to pain since they're interlinked,” says lead author Mathieu Roy.
Dr Roy completed the study as a Université de Montréal PhD student and is now a post-doctoral fellow at Columbia University.
“Our tests revealed when pain is perceived by our brain and how that pain can be amplified when combined with negative emotions.”
Part of the study involved 13 subjects who were given small but painful electric shocks, causing automatic knee-jerk reactions caused by the spine that can be measured. During the tests, the subjects were shown images, both positive (e.g. water-skiing in the sun), unpleasant (e.g. a viscous bear) and neutral (e.g. a book) and there reactions were measured.
The study was authored by Mathieu Roy, Piché, Mathieu, Chen, Jen-I, Isabelle Peretz and Pierre Rainville of the Université de Montréal.
Support was provided by the Fonds de recherche en santé du Québec, the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
Many practitioners of Meridian Energy Therapies are well aware of the amazing pain relief that energy therapies that focus on emotions can give, but it is often hard to convince more sceptical members of the public. This new study is a great stepping stone to help these people understand some of the many ways that Energy Therapies can help.
