Your body speaks to you. That’s right. Deciphering your body's message of discomfort, illness or injury and paying attention to its meaning can help you to resolve the problem.
Dr. John Kappas, in his bookProfessional Hypnotism Manual, proposes this:
The theory of body syndromes is based on the principle that, whenever an emotional trauma is present, a corresponding physical reaction will take place. These physical reactions, called body syndromes, will, in turn, reﬂect the cause of the emotional problem, according to the area or areas of the body that become aﬀected by pain, pressure, or tension.
