In the case of the "Sticky Neural Loop"
Our brain-body circuits need to rebalance. The key is using the brain (top-down stress control strategies like mindfulness, hypnotherapy, biofeedback, and more) and the physical body (bottom-up stress control strategies like physical therapy, yoga, acupuncture, and physical exercise) to build new roads off the pain highways and restore balance within the mind/body connection.
Creative healing can be anything: art, music, acting, writing, yoga, dancing, cooking, and many other activities that bring joy back into your life. Creative healing actually changes the pain messages. It can help rewire the nervous system’s pain routes – moving the brain’s circuits to other creative areas, instead of getting “stuck” in the pain circuit. You can learn to “unstick” your own sticky neural pain loop and rewire your own brain!
The moral of the story here is: There is a way back. You have options.
