Soon you will learn that your body contains imprints from emotional traumas and disappointing events in your life. Oftentimes these strong emotions burrow into hidden corners of the mind and body. These painful experiences need to be addressed. To be acknowledged not forgotten; to be nurtured to heal, not ignored. When traumas, big or little, are buried, over time they create specific pain patterns in the body. Neck pain tells you there is a ‘Pain-in-the-neck’ in your life. Hip pain represents insecure foundation. Foot pain reveals that you are ready, but fearful, of taking the next step in your life. The list goes on and on! The Body Blueprint™ explains the mind-body connection between your mental stress, your emotions and your pain.

My name is Jodi Scholes. I’ve spent the last 25 years doing qualitative research on physical and muscular pain. In my work, I’ve treated and cared for thousands of clients suffering from mild to severe physical pain. What I have found is that when we stop seeing pain with just the narrow focus on the physical, we can discover the story behind the pain. When we discover the story behind the pain, we empower ourselves to not only release the pain, but to truly heal. In this book, I invite you to explore non pharmacological alternatives to chronic pain. Moving from stuck in a foggy rut to being in control of living your vision of a vibrant healthy life.
In this book, the author pulls from her vast experience as a Licensed Healthcare Professional. She introduces us to the concept that physical pain can be managed and resolved by exploring and making a connection to any unresolved traumas we experienced in the past.
Using ancient wisdom, the Body Blueprint™ connects the dots. We find that low back pain is linked to unexpressed anger. Knee pain relates to bending against one’s will. Shoulder pain is traced back to an imbalance in responsibilities. When we begin to recognize the clues that are revealed to us as to which body part correlates with which emotion, we begin to have an expanded vision of where to go for support. A clearer picture of what to do to heal.
