Is Buried Emotion Making Your Back Ache?

Did you know that up to 85% of physical illnesses may be the result of stress and emotional responses due to stress? Dr. John Sarno, physician, researcher and author of “Healing Back Pain,” explains that making this mind/body connection often goes a long way to reliving pain. Dr. Harlene Gold-Schmidt agrees, and invites all interested in learning ways to identify emotional stress that leads to physical discomfort to bring a healthy lunch for a Lunch & Learn on June 16 from 12noon-1:30 p.m., followed by a 1⁄2 hour of gentle moving meditation to increase vitality and ability to deeply relax.

“One of the most important steps to gain relief from pain is becoming aware of buried emotions like anger and fear,” states Dr. Goldschmidt. “Perhaps this is easier said than done. However, major surgeries, reduced physical activity, and taking medications with side effects are not great alternatives either.”

Dr. Harlene Goldschmidt has been providing psychotherapy for over 35 years using a unique East-West approach.

Cost: $20. Location: Physical Therapy Unlimited, 23 Mountain Blvd., Warren. For information call 973-533-9600. HarleneGoldschmidtPhD.com.
