Many people, when having pain, become the pain and they look for the quickest route to get of the pain. I tend to think of pain is a teacher. This can be physical pain and/or emotional pain. Pain is a teacher of health, a teacher of discipline, a teacher of transcendence, and a teacher of transformation. During massage as I work into someones pain I can tell which people are comfortable being with pain and which are not. Pain, like everything else is a vibration of energy in the body and when we understand that we can use our minds to calm ourselves which ultimately will help calm the pain and also at least bring one into a state of inquiry and truth to begin to understand what could actually be causing the pain.
