"SHEN is all about emotional growth and positive, empowering change, it is all about throwing off me old emotional pain that hooks
you and steals your power to live your life the way you want"
SHEN Physio-Emotional Release Therapy
Many of us
work very hard to understand the past
events that shape our current responses to life, only
to find that learning the cause does not always deal
with old emotional reactions that keep tripping us
up. We used to think the brain controlled our
emotions, but phrases like, 'driven by anger;
overwhelmed by grief; or 'in the grip of fear; tell
us differently. No matter how hard we try to override
them, deeply buried emotions clearly have a 'mind of
their own', often driving us to say or do things we
wish we hadn't.
Why don't we
let go of old emotions like fear, sadness
and shame? We can't, because painful emotions trigger
a contraction called the 'splinting reflex', a reflex
meant to prevent tissue damage from a broken bone's
sharp ends. Unfortunately, the brain cannot reverse
this pain~reflex when it contracts around, and traps,
painful emotions. Over time, our minds may no longer
remember them, but our bodies do. From deep inside,
old painful emotions continue to influence our
thoughts, our actions, and our bodies as well.
Our bodies 'act up' when emotionally upset. Painful emotions are
usually fleeting, but if they go on for a long time,
our bodies suffer. For example, long term fear or
anger can lead to eating disorders, and trapped grief
to heart or lung problems. Until recently, how this
happens was not clear, but we now think long4erm
contractions around painful emotions cause organ
dysfunction by interfering with the flow of blood and
other nutrients. Thus, they are often responsible for
many conditions labelled 'psychosomatic'.
ourselves - to live the way we want, we have
to reverse the harmful effects of these
SHEN is a safe,
reliable process that heals by unlocking trapped,
painful emotion that we cannot unlock by ourselves,
and lifting it from the body.

Practitioners are skilled in reversing the
effects of these pain-contractions and enabling the
painful emotions to leave. They do this by directing
the biofield, or 'qi-energy', between their hands
through your body, using new, potent techniques
tested over years of clinical research. While being
SHENned, you recline, fully dressed, on a special
SHEN table. You may feel tingles or other sensations
as you relax, fall asleep or enter a state similar to
meditation. Frequently, memories of forgotten,
pivotal events surface. Usually more than one session
is needed for the trapped feelings of sadness, fear,
shame or anger to rise from your body and dissipate.
This takes place in a safe, non-threatening and
