Newsletter I – August 2012: Understanding a Healing Crisis, part 1
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well. This is the first Therapia Newsletter, I hope you enjoy reading it. Please let me know your thoughts on this and any topics you would like me to cover. I thought it would be beneficial to dedicate the first Therapia Newsletter to the ‘healing crisis’. Many Raynor Therapy clients go through a ‘healing crisis’ after deep tissue treatment, but also during/after a detox/diet plan or after any other kind of deep body work, such as Yoga. By ‘healing crisis’ I mean the body’s natural response to these treatments/bodywork by the removal of tension, toxins and by cell regeneration.
At times, this process can be rather uncomfortable and inconvenient, but it is important to understand why it occurs, and how it helps us to move towards better well-being and to restore our body’s natural abilities to heal. In the first part of the article, I will explain how our immune system can get compromised, and will explore the difference between Health and Disease and also look at defining what toxins are and how they can affect body and mind. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
