I know I have repressed and not-so-repressed emotions that affect back pain and post herpetic nerve pain from a shingles outbreak more than a year ago. I would almost say I am "addicted" to my chiropractor, acupuncturist, physical therapist, and endless supplements I swallow daily. I'm afraid to stop them because I might get worse, although I see no great improvement except the temporary relief that comes from weekly appointments. This is not the life I envisioned. So . . . I am willing to try this approach. I would like to free myself from fear, tension, and the cost of what I do now.
