This is often referred to as the body mind connection, where emotional stress shows up as a body symptom.
When people are stressed they may experience; tightness in their shoulders, increased/decreased appetite, difficulty in sleeping or headaches for example.
Working with people to manage or reduce underlying stress or anxiety has been an interest of mine for many years and I have frequently worked with people who describe living with complex trauma and/or experiencing significant loss and grief.
I completed a Master of Social Work Qualifying and worked concurrently with my chiropractic practice for several years as a family worker with a Newcastle NGO.
I recommend you an excellent 30-minute podcast from the ABC’s All in The Mind Program titled the Science of Mind over Body broadcast March 20th 2016
