Is Chronic Pain the Bane of Your Existence?

Chronic pain is the single biggest symptom causing people to seek outside help. It's something I see all the time as a practitioner. Often, it's the symptom that's hardest to deal with.

We all
have times in life where we experience short periods of acute pain. This can arise from physical, mental, and emotional causes. Of course, most individuals don't realize that these three aspects are really one thing.

It's estimated that about 10% of individuals have chronic pain symptoms. Over time, these wear you down and make life miserable.

Chronic pain syndromes, such as chronic headaches, temporomandibular disorder, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), interstitial cystitis/irritable bladder, pelvic pain, and others, cluster together in an individual. (1)

Chronic pain syndromes often wax and wane. They are transient, with one or the other being dominant at any point. They're often related with symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, brain fog, and/or moodiness.

Adverse Childhood Experiences and other traumas
are the primary cause of chronic pain. These can be from your own life or inherited generational patterns. Yes, your great-grandmother's life experiences can affect you here and now!

Here's What Some Are Saying...

One of the best changes...I am feeling more open in my heart

I was pleased with the benefits I had received from the Emotion Code, but I was finding that I wanted more immediate results in my sessions. My intuition kept telling me that I would clear so much more if I was receiving bodywork along with the Emotion Code and so I started looking for a practitioner who did both together. It was hard to find someone but eventually I came across Kent’s website. I kept going back and reading, tuning in each time to see if it resonated and it did. I liked the clean, easy, quick descriptions on his website.

Kent uses and trusts the answers he gets with muscle testing implicitly. For example, during one session we were guided through a book that neither of us had read, and that wasn’t ours, to a page with what I needed. It talked about the exact supplement I was feeling prompted to buy but I hadn’t done so. In another session, I loved the feelings of having the weight of others lifted off me as I cleared the negative cords inherited from my ancestors. It wasn’t my stuff, I didn’t need to look at it or process it and so having it removed easily and quickly was such a relief.

I have been brought into a closer relationship with the inner presence within and above me, that guides and looks after me. Experiencing the purity and strength of that connection has changed my perspective. I acknowledge it more, the power that it is, confirms to me that I know what is best for me.

Besides feeling physically better, one of the best changes I’ve experienced is that I am feeling more open in my heart where I am wanting to date and really care for someone. This is huge for me, and I am seeing responses and how men are pursuing me.

There are a lot of great alternative health practitioners out there and I am pleased to recommend Kent as one of them whole heartedly.

Releasing my "Stones of Trauma"

I have received many types of alternative health treatments and have been a practitioner of various modalities for years. I initially found out about the Body Code System and Kent Smith by doing some research into options for dealing with some neurodegenerative issues.

Kent was receptive and addressed my questions during our initial phone conversation. I felt at ease once I understood more about how a Body Code “session” flows and how he uses muscle testing.

My initial intention in receiving the Body Code was to release some of the "Stones of Trauma" from my "Bowl of Light" and be more of a Light Being and less burdened.

I came to appreciate receiving hands-on bodywork after the Body Code to further release holding patterns in my body. In one session this combination was so profound that I was able to go for a long walk to the beach, for over an hour, without a cane or walking poles. My spine was balanced, and I had no pain in my legs.

In my work with Kent, I felt very safe with a sense of being cared for. His hand on my body was comfortable and I always felt good after the sessions with a feeling of Lightness in my being.

I highly recommend the work that Kent is offering and will receive sessions again as needed.

He Has Kept Me Going

I've been a client of Kent's since 2007. Over the years he has kept me going, allowing me to work as hard as I do. Most often my sessions are consisting of deep tissue work but at times I require the Body Code.

The Body Code was very helpful in my grieving the sudden loss of my brother. It's also helped me let go of other emotional issues from traumatic childhood events.

Kent listens and adapts his sessions to the specific needs of his clients. I've referred my friends and family to him with great results. I feel very fortunate to have found Kent as my intuitive bodywork practitioner and I'll follow him wherever he goes.

Heal My Childhood Traumas

I have been working with Kent over the past 9 years. Above all, Kent is enabling me to heal my childhood traumas and deep emotional pain. In short, he is intuitive, kind and powerful.

Dissolving What Stands in the Way

The Body Code is a remarkable modality. The best way of describing the Body Code is that it uncovers what lies hidden beneath the surface of an issue. Issues may be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual in nature. The Body Code ends up dissolving what stands in the way of healing. Thus restoring balance to the whole being.

Kent's approach using the Body Code can be applied in so many different ways. It feels like there is no problem too big to tackle. Kent provides a welcoming and safe space allowing you to express your needs openly. I have experienced significant shifts by feeling heard and supported by Kent. I highly recommend Kent as a practitioner.

basic details on pain

Understanding Pain 101...

 Pain is defined as "An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage". (2)

Pain is a sensation you experience in your body. It's subjective, as it's based upon your own prior experiences with it.

  • The sensory dimension: Where does it hurt? How big is the pain?
  • The emotional dimension: How unpleasant is the pain?
  • The cognitive dimension: Have I experienced this before? Am I scared of it? Am I feeling anxious about it? How do I deal with it?

Acute and Chronic Pain

Damaging the tissues creates acute physical pain. Mental and emotional turmoil can also trigger acute feeling physical pain. 

Acute physical pain has characteristics of being sharp, burning, cramping, aching, or pressured. Acute pain originating from physical tissue damage diminishes as the injury heals. Acute physical pain arising from mental and emotional sources rarely resolves this way. It's necessary to identify and release the psychological and emotional triggers.

Chronic pain is any pain lasting longer than 3 months. It may be identical to, or different from, acute pain. It's often vague, with no specific signs showing up in the physical body.  Studies reveal there are changes in certain brain regions creating chronic pain. These cognitive and emotional areas handle pain regulation. So chronic pain rarely resolves in a simple, linear fashion

Kent Smith

I know this from my personal healing journey. I grew up being used and trafficked. Chronic constipation, low back pain, bladder and prostate issues were my reality. This, along with overflowing emotional toxicity, was my daily experience.

No matter what I was trying, the chronic patterns were not changing. What made it worse was the sense of being stuck without hope. This was my darkest place and the crossroads where I chose to heal, no matter what.

 The services offered at Agape Therapeutic represent my experience, strength, and hope. I draw from a spectrum of ongoing professional training and personal healing experiences.
