META-Health: decoding physical symptoms

Our bodies are auto-regulating systems that are designed to heal naturally. If you cut your finger, the cut heals automatically – unless it is prevented from healing in some way. The same with that deep purple bruise if you hit your leg against a chair. So why is it that some symptoms simply don’t seem to resolve?

What gets in the way of your body healing?

Physical symptoms are often signals from our body; pointers to mental, emotional and lifestyle blocks. This is especially true of chronic symptoms, which we may have been dealing with over a long period of time.

META-Health shoulder painWhen injuries, physical pain and illnesses recur or stay chronic over extended periods of time, there is usually some unconsidered aspect getting in the way. Healing can be impeded by unconscious thought patterns, beliefs, decisions, stressful environments, habits, as well as social lifestyle.

Recent, acute physical issues can also heal faster when any negative processes are recognised and released. This could be fear or trauma at the time of injury, any limiting beliefs, even worry or anxiety from receiving a diagnosis.

What if you knew the reasons behind your symptoms, so you could understand what needs to be resolved to allow your body to heal?

In a META-Health session, I can assist you to find root causes and unconscious triggers that are getting in the way of your well being. We can then work together to resolve the specific stressors and disruptions. Once released, the results can be transformative, allowing your body to heal optimally.

“Ultimately our stresses and limitations are held not only in our mental narratives but also in our physical bodies.”

Monthly EFT Tapping Group

EFT Tapping group
Meeting regularly to experience EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), also known as tapping. A simple yet powerful technique which effectively releases stuck energy and negative feelings that impede your mental and emotional well-being.

The technique is so simple you can continue to use it on your own to resolve daily stresses.

If you are interested in helping yourself heal in any area of life: stress, overwhelm, health, loss, family, finances, relationships or even career, you will find this monthly group hugely beneficial.

This low cost EFT group session is an effective way of receiving support between private sessions, or seeing yourself through a difficult time.

Working in groups can be powerful, often bringing new perspectives which help you see your situation a new light, creating shifts and new solutions. The same as individual sessions, this group session is also a confidential space where you can safely voice any concerns.

My intention for this group is to provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment so everyone feels heard, supported and empowered.

  • Whether you’re just starting out with EFT or are an experienced tapper, you will benefit from this group
  • EFT/tapping is simple to learn and do, however people often report ‘forgetting to tap’. This group serves as a reminder to continue to practice EFT on your own.
  • Tapping as a group has literal benefits for everyone, as tapping with others can help reduce the emotional intensity of your own issues. This is known as “borrowing benefits” and is one of the most profound discoveries of EFT.

Facilitated by Falguni Mather, an Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner with AAMET.

Let your breath be your guide

When we feel anxious, panicky, or even unconsciously stressed, we tend to take short breaths (called shallow breathing or chest breathing). As a result, our body doesn’t receive enough oxygen, which limits blood flow to important organs and creates tension in our muscles and joints.
This is a physiological reaction to perceived external danger, so when we continuously take shallow breaths we are actually sending signals to our body that we are under threat.

Anything from being stuck in a traffic jam or standing in a long queue, to feeling claustrophobic in a crowded space or even remembering a past traumatic event, can make us anxious and put us into stress mode. Our minds can perceive these situations as threatening/stressful and our body reacts to our thought patterns.

It is imperative to start becoming aware of when we are putting ourselves into stress mode, as these are usually subconscious reactions.

When we breathe full, deep breaths using the full capacity of our lungs, not only are we nourishing our cells with more oxygen, but we are sending calming signals to our body.

In the same way that stressful thoughts in our subconscious mind can create negative changes in our physical body, initiating conscious changes (breathing) in our body can create a calmer state of mind.

  • Stressful thoughts = shallow breath & tightness in muscles
  • Deep, full breaths = calmer mind + calmer body

Harvard cardiologist Herbert Benson, MD, identified the flip side of the stress response, which he called the “relaxation response.” Benson demonstrated that meditation, yoga, and other relaxation techniques can bring about physiological changes including a lower heart rate, lower breathing rate, and decreased muscle tension along with positive changes in brain waves. Mind-body techniques that elicit this relaxation response have been successful in treating many stress-related disorders.

Correct and conscious breath is the first and most simple step toward releasing stress and anxiety.


Try this exercise:
To find out how you are breathing, place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. On every inhale, notice your chest rising. Notice your abdomen too – does it move?

  • If it doesn’t, then your breath is shallow.
  • If your abdomen moves in on an inhale, your breath is inverted (and still shallow).
  • If your chest as well as your abdomen rise when you breathe in, you are breathing good, relaxed breaths – well done!

If you find it difficult to breathe into your abdomen, try this:

  • Try to imagine that your abdomen is like a balloon
  • As you breathe in slowly, let the air fill up your abdomen as if you are filling a balloon with air, letting your abdomen rise before your chest
  • As you exhale, let your chest go in then your abdomen, as if deflating the balloon
  • Do this exercise 3 – 4 times and feel your body become calm.

There are many breathing techniques and exercises that we can use to release stress from our body & mind. The first step, as always, is to be mindful, to become aware. Only then can we pause and step back before we can breathe our way to a sense of calm and to new perspectives.
