A THOUGHT THAT STILL APPLIES TODAY….
One of the first lines of treatment for depression or anxiety is very often psychotropic medications. In most cases, by the time I begin working with an individual, they have already been on medication for some time, and still are experiencing the symptoms of depression or anxiety, loneliness or malaise, which is why they are now seeking an alternative therapy to address their issues. There is nothing wrong with medication as a form of intervention to treat symptoms. However, the limitation of taking a pill as the primary solution to feeling better is that we are essentially postponing having to deal with the underlying emotional issues; we are “numbing” out so to speak, to the emotional pain that also exists alongside our physical condition.
we are tapping into a deep and profound source of wisdom from our bodies which we can use to heal ourselves.
