LOVE can help with pain!

Researchers at Stanford have shown in a new study that love can mediate pain by stimulating the same areas of the brain normally targeted by pain-reducing medications. Granted, it IS the *head-over-heels-passionately-in-love* kind of love that stimulates the nucleus accumbens, a key reward center but the research is promising and paves the way for more work in this field. It reinforces what clients experience at Hands-on Wellness OT with EFT work: when they work with SELF-love and forgiveness, there is a reduction in pain, a decrease in stress and anxiety, and a greater sense of ease in all they do.
