How Emotional Pain can equal Psychosomatic​ Pain.

Emotional pain not only causes stress and depression but also physical pain. When people feel emotional pain the brain activates the same area of the brain as physical pain the anterior insula and the anterior cingulate cortex to be exact.

If you think of it this way it makes senses, how many times have you stubbed your toe or stood on a plug and felt physical pain and anger at the same time? with the physical pain, you know exactly where the pain hurts as the neural, blood and immune pathways between the brain and body are tagged with body location information beginning in the spinal cord and with successively more specific tagging up through the brain stem and thalamus.

This communication lets you know exactly where the pain is so it’s natural to conclude emotional pain must have a physical location and all emotions have a trigger point. These micro-momentary muscular activations begin the premotor area, which is responsible for forming an emotional expression in the body.

The nervous system is an elaborate network of cells that facilitates communication between our brains and the rest of our bodies, directly links our physical selves to our emotional life. Voluntary muscles, involuntary muscles, and our five senses can be influenced by our emotional responses of our bodies so we can manifest a nearly infinite variety of physical responses to stress.

Emotional factors can contribute to or cause a range of physical conditions. As an example have you ever had someone sound you out and hurt your feelings but instead of screaming in their faces, you said nothing at all. You might be holding on to some residual muscle tension in your neck, throat or jaw (holding back your scream).

Anxiety can trigger activation in any of these muscles triggering a huge variety of physical responses as shown in the emotional and physical pain chart below…

emotional-chart-nervous-system

Our emotions can have a direct impact on our health if you have been suffering from chronic pain for a long time and nothing the doctors prescribes helps you then your pain might be psychosomatic and seeing a psychotherapist to rule out emotional factors earlier in the diagnostic process can save money and heartache, which is especially important because the emotional upset associated with failed medical procedures and treatments can cause symptoms to worsen.

How Psychotherapy Can Help with Chronic Pain

People with chronic pain may sometimes resist exploring the possibility that their pain has an emotional root, perhaps out of fear of being accused of inventing the symptoms or causing them on purpose. However, individuals with SSD or emotionally rooted chronic pain do experience real pain, a fact that therapists and medical providers generally accept. Reluctance to admit to the emotional roots of pain may also stem from the belief that emotion-based chronic pain is less likely to have a medical cure. In addition, the prospect of confronting the deeper emotions that may be causing the pain can seem like a daunting task.

However, confronting those emotions and achieving catharsis—a release of pent-up emotions—may provide both short- and long-term relief. Relief may not be permanent, though, as emotions held for a long time in the body can transform to primarily physical symptoms, and they may not be relieved by an emotional release in all cases. In this case, therapy may be more effective when combined with another form of treatment.

Biofeedback is a form of therapy that can be useful in learning to identify the ways the body experiences pain. Understanding the body’s response can help a person develop ways to manage and relieve pain. Therapy can help individuals remain hopeful, and it can be an effective treatment to supplement any prescribed medications. Relaxation therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy have both been shown to be effective at treating people who live with chronic pain.

 

Alternative Therapies For Psychosomatic Pain

The Common Alternative Therapies For Psychosomatic Pain Are:

  • Relaxation Technique To Help Overcome Psychosomatic Pain: The various relaxation techniques like guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation technique etc. helps in relieving the physical and mental stress and relaxes the mind and body. Progressive muscle relaxation technique could be very good for people with body pain as it focuses on contracting a muscle followed by releasing the muscle tension thus easing out the pain to a great extent.
  • Hypnosis To Treat Somatoform Disorders: It focuses on resolving the underlying unconscious drives, desires or wishes which is manifesting itself in the form of a somatic symptom. Though there have been a lot of controversies in the technique of hypnosis as a therapy, it has been found to be very useful in treating cases of somatoform disorders.
  • Massage: Various massage techniques have been found to give some relief to patients with psychosomatic pain or pain disorders. The forms include chiropractic massage, shiatsu, etc.
  • Art Therapies: Art therapies focus on the expression of emotion using different art techniques like music, painting, dance, etc. A body-oriented art therapy is found to do wonders in the treatment of psychosomatic pain disorder. Dance therapy can be of great use since it allows expression of emotion, often conflicting ones, and also the movement helps in relieving pain.
  • The other alternative treatments for psychosomatic pain disorder may be hot and cold compressions, distraction techniques, Acupuncture and acupressure, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS).

Suffering from a psychosomatic pain might be very difficult to explain or communicate to people as there isn’t any physical cause and other might think that the patient is faking. Many a time wrong diagnosis happens due to lack of awareness. Thus a proper guidance from an experienced physician who has treated psychosomatic pain earlier is very important.

“Can you guess how old I am”?!

Ok, so this is brave and any woman who asks anyone this question deserves what she gets, but I’m putting myself out there and asking the question how old do you think I am?

With another impending birthday on the horizon, my personal war on anti-aging is stepping up a gear, with new nutrition plans on the go and new gym equipment ready for a pounding, my battle against aging is on and has been in play for some time now. Although I admit I could have a more nutritious diet, not smoking when I drink beer, take on a few more early nights, be religious about taking my make-up off before I go to bed and stop sun worshiping with my face tilted directly towards the sun.

 

But all in all, I’m not doing too bad, the one thing I do have in my artillery is my not so secret weapon (as iv been harping on and on at how good cryotherapy is for you for ages now), I have been having Cryo-Facial treatments for the past couple of years, about once a month I have a full facial, and then once a week I just have five-ten minutes especially around my eyes to keep my fine lines and wrinkles at bay.

I don’t use expensive creams, as they tend to make empty promises so I mainly use a face wash which never cost me more than a fiver and argan oil from Holland and Barretts as my skin loves it.

Iv taken some pictures for you to judge for yourself, this is not a vanity project. I just wanted to prove to you how well Cryo-Facial treatments are working on my war on anti-aging… guess my age yet…..?

……I am going to be 46 years old in February 2017.

In the media celebrities such as Demi Moore, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Danielle Craig to name  drop just a few who use cryotherapy as a health and beauty treatment. It’s reported that Kim Kardashian uses anti-aging face freezing as part of her everyday beauty regime to fight the visible signs of aging. “The cold causes the blood vessels to contract and then dilate, which improves the oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin’s surface, making it appear more radiant,’ says facialist Rani Mirza, who has performed the treatment on celebrities including Anna Friel, Natalie Imbruglia and Erin O’Connor. ‘My clients like it because it gives their skin a taut and more defined look,’ she adds.

We will go even further to say  A CRYO-Facial is a revolutionary anti-aging facial treatment which is non- invasive the application of cold temperature to the surface of the face which is very relaxing. The cold temperatures during a CRYO-Facial close the pores on the skin, and the surface temperature on the skin drops to around minus 9 Celsius, in order to get back to the right temperature, a lot of blood and oxygen goes to the face, with more oxygen than normal going to the surface of the face, this Triggers an increased production of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter, more even skin tone, reducing visible signs of aging. It will improve the appearance of scars and fine wrinkles and you will increase the skin’s elasticity.  Toxins stored in the layers of the skin are broken down and flushed away. The intense cold (-180) activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving your skin firm and tight.

All this and not a single toxin goes into the body as liquid nitrogen occurs naturally within the body so there are no side effects. So like we said using this toxin-free alternative to botox, pain-free alternative to intrusive surgeries “Forget botox go Frotox”!.

How To Activate your Collagen with A Hot-Ice Cryo-Facial!

The Hot-Ice Cryo-Facial is a Cryogenic treatment, in which a controlled beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the skin of the face, scalp, and neck area. The Cryo-Facial is truly one of a kind and is so relaxing and pleasant that our clients often report how relaxed and refreshed they feel after their treatment.

Firstly, by focusing exclusively on the face with local Cryo-Wand, the surface of the face is enhanced immediately as the cold temperatures during a Hot-Ice Cryo-Facial close the pores on the skin, and in the process tightens the skin. Also the surface temperature on the skin drops to around minus 7 to 8 degrees Celsius, in order to get back to the right temperature, a lot of blood and oxygen goes to the face, with more oxygen than normal going to the surface of the face, this triggers an increased production of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter, more even skin tone, reducing visible signs of ageing. It will improve the appearance of scars and fine wrinkles and will increase the skin’s elasticity.hi-collagen

Collagen is activated to produce more cells, causing the skin to become more elastic over repeated use.

Your pores will appear much smaller and any inflammation and “puffiness” in the face is eliminated. With repeated applications, the collagen benefit becomes more apparent as the skin’s actual elasticity is returned to an earlier, younger time in the life of the skin.

Each treatment features both a Detoxing facial massage as well as a scalp and neck nitrogen massage, leaving you rejuvenated and firm from scalp to chest. The skin becomes tighter, more even-toned, and blood circulation is improved. Additionally, the cold triggers hair follicles to produce hair on your scalp, eyelashes, and eyebrows making your lashes and locks stronger and longer.

During the Cryotherapy treatment, the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session. These causes Toxins stored in the layers of the skin to be broken down and flushed away. The intense cold (-180) activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving your skin firm and tight. After several treatments, clients have noticed the skin becoming smoother and more even toned with regained elasticity and improved overall “youthful” feeling. An increase of the skin’s elasticity has also be seen in repeated sessions, which that Cryotherapy anti-aging benefits.

The anti-inflammatory properties of cryotherapy are also used to treat chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. With repeated applications Cryotherapy will assist in reducing the affected areas, relieving discomfort and during a treatment, the regime will even heal the area.

How Cryotherapy gets rid of large open pores.

“what causes open pores?” We all have pores on our skin that represent openings of oil glands; when these openings are excessively dilated, they are termed as “open pores”. This article answers “what causes open pores?” or what causes these openings of oil glands to get dilated.

During puberty, increased hormonal levels trigger increased oil secretion from oil/sebaceous glands. Eventually, the opening of these sebaceous glands become clogged with dead skin cells and debris restricting the flow of increased oil leading to distension of their opening which is visible as open pores. Since sebaceous glands are dormant until puberty, hence open pores are not seen in children. In older age, the laxity of skin leads to open pores.

“What Do Open pores look like?” they look like small pits, giving your skin a dimpled appearance similar to an orange peel. open-poresThey impart an irregular, dull and aged look to your face. Open pores are concentrated mainly on your nose and adjacent cheeks; for those of you who have very, oily skin may notice them on the outer part of cheeks and forehead as well.

“How can Cryotherapy help me with my open pores?” A CRYO-Facial is a revolutionary anti-aging facial treatment which is non- invasive CRYO- Facials uses the applications of liquid nitrogen streamed on the surface of the face which is very relaxing. Firstly, the cold temperatures during a CRYO-Facial close the PORES on the skin, and in the process tightens the skin. During Cryotherapy treatment the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session. These causes Toxins stored in the layers of the skin to be broken down and flushed away. The intense cold (-180) activates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, leaving your skin firm and tight.

We have had clients report back to us that without them touching the skin they have debris oozing out of their the blocked up pores and seeing much improvement in their size of their open pores after their very first treatment.  We love what we do and that is making you look and feel your very best.

Cryotherapy treatments for Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne and Rosacea.

Between 1 in 4 and 1 in 5 people suffer from some form of chronic skin disease, the most common being Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne or Rosacea. Because these conditions seem to be caused by different factors in different people, none of these conditions can be fully cured. As a result, most treatments involve simply treating the symptoms with no long term relief.
While they may not be fatal, these conditions have a severe impact on the quality of life of sufferers and their general happiness and well being. Cryotherapy not only treats the symptoms, but also forces the body to reset it’s immune system to fight the underlying infection.
The extreme cold of the Cryo-Medical treatment provides immediate relief from inflammation and irritation, reducing redness after only a few sessions. A continued course of treatments forces the body to reset it’s auto immune responses which in the case of Eczema and Psoriasis cause the excessive production of skin cells, as a result, over time, patches reduce and flare ups become less common.
It is not a miracle cure and should be used in conjunction a healthy lifestyle and avoiding those things which you know cause flare ups for you, but it does deliver impressive result in many people.psoriasis slide 1PP skin conditions
