You’re laying in bed, just about to drop into sleep, and there’s the itch or twitch that startles you back from slumber. or the knee jerks that make you feel like a puppet with someone else pulling the strings. Some legs get wild enough to force sleeping in a bed separate from their years-long partner. Whether on the sofa or in bed there seems to be no escaping the legs that want to move.
I’ve helped clients with Restless Leg Syndrome. I’ve done it using Energy and Bowen, individually and both in separate sessions.
Bowen helps neurological issues by loosening fascia which restores tissue hydration and unrestricted communication with the limbic system. Moist tissue can respond to our activity demands, recover from those exertions and rest when “in waiting”.
Fascia also holds our body memory or muscle memory- the patterns or reactions that we carry out without conscious thought. It also hold the somatic memory of injuries and trauma that we have incurred. Balanced fascia is more fully in communication with our limbic system which houses the emotional-mental portions of the injuries and traumas. The feedback between the fascial and limbic systems integrate the physical and emotional-mental responses to new and chronic injuries. This will make healing responses more appropriate, releasing cascading inflammation, edema and chronic muscle spasms.
Energy sessions help rest the spirit and can reveal the spiritual reason for the physical manifestation. Our work on this plane is activated by our family and friends when we are young, usually by age 7 through misunderstanding and trauma. If we don’t respond by facing and resolving the issue, it will be presented to us time and again, louder and more painful each time, until it gets our full and complete attention. Each of us have a unique and varied life course. Energy work can help “lift the lid” on those unresolved reactions that we buried in our bodies and memories. As adults we have more control over ourselves and our environments and have better tools to help remove these bundles of pain and sorrow. Our itches and twitches are our sub-conscious trying to tell us something.
Either way, getting some relief from the itch, pain and twitch in yours will help you get needed rest and feeling better!
