Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral infection that typically causes a painful skin rash, often with blisters. It typically affects older adults or people with weak immune systems. A typical herpes zoster rash appears on one side of the face or body and can last two to four weeks. However, the pain of shingles can last for months. Read more about shingles HERE.
A client came to see me having suffered unrelenting months of pain from a case of shingles. Even after the blisters cleared up he was left with lingering, excruciating nerve pain. Even though his shingles pain was not the original focus of his healing treatment, it was inevitably part of the healing he received. His body knew how to heal; together, my client and I set appropriate intentions and created the necessary conditions, allowing his body to establish the frequency it needed to make changes in his nervous system that diminished the chronic pain. Throughout the course of treatment, he expressed that his arm felt as though it was heavily weighted; this was when his energy field created the necessary circulation to disrupt the pain cycle. After his session, I advised him that some physiological and energetic and shifts were likely to continue for approximately another 24 hours. After about 24 hours, the client informed me that the constant pain had finally stopped.
