The Nocebo effect occurs when expectations and negative suggestions cause symptoms or illness to occur. Nocebo effect is both biochemical and physiological, displaying with a variety of cues. Cortisol and histamine levels dramatically increase,targeting adrenal and hypothalamus involvement. Recently, Ted Kaptchuk,Harvard medical, proved Nocebo occurs without concsious awareness.

Stop Suffering helps reduce over sensitive pain receptors in the brain. Over time it also reduces the neurotransmitter feedback that allows the same headache or pain to return after using narcotics and pain meds. Pain aromatherapy may be used concurrently with medications with no interactions. The use of aromatherapy products in pain management is increasing in use in hospitals, clinics and patients. The most effective way to apply Stop Suffering is on the flat area of the inner ear. Rub on a drop of Stop Suffering then firmly press the area and hold it for up to 60 seconds. Repeat in the other ear. Use this protocol as many times as it takes to control and eliminate pain.

by Judy Griffin, PhD.
Deeply penetrating essential oils in Stop Hurting and Deep Massage lotions make aromatherapy an excellent aid for myofascial release.

Aromatherapy essential oils penetrate the thick, fibrous, constricted fascia overlying muscle tissue
Chronic inflammation causes the protective layer of fascia tissue to harden. The results are pain and muscle tension creating a feedback loop causing symptoms even after the myofascia releases. Stop Hurting and Deep Massage lotions are successfully used in hospitals and clinics to penetrate layers of restricted fascia, increasing circulation, lymphatic drainage and mobilizing adhered tissue. Aromatherapy essential oils soften the myofascial tissue, allowing the deep and constrained tissue to stretch and move as it it designed to function. Stop Hurting and Deep Massage lotions are gently massaged into the restricted area for 3 to 5 minutes.

Aromatherapy revitalizes and de-stresses the fascia and muscles without producing side effects or putting a “band aid” over the symptom. Stop Hurting and Deep Massage lotions help reduce soreness after therapy, working quickly to break down inflamed, fibrous tissue, removing toxins from the painful area.
Myofascial release is also helped with aromatherapy by stimulating an immune response. Penetrating essential oils, such as peppermint and eucalyptus create warmth to break up congestion. They also have an analgesic effect, relaxing the muscles and reducing pain.
Stop Hurting and Deep Massage simultaneously work on physical and psychological levels. As stress lessens and tightness is relieved, nervous fatigue and feeling overwhelmed are also relieved. Aromatherapy myofascial release normalizes the body and mind. Be your best again using Stop Hurting and Deep Massage lotions.
