In the case of the “Sticky Neural Loop
Our brain-body circuits need to rebalance. The key is using the physical body (bottom-up stress control strategies like physical therapy, yoga, acupuncture, and physical exercise) and the brain (top-down stress control strategies like mindfulness, hypnotherapy, biofeedback, and more) 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: You have options.
