Hello <<First Name>>,

How are you feeling? Emotional?

We tend to use the terms emotions and feelings interchangeably but actually they are quite different things and may be seen as two sides of the same coin.
Emotions are physiological responses to our environment, which give rise to biochemical reactions in the body resulting in a change in physical state. Emotions are physical and instinctual, our body’s reaction to the world around us without thinking. Emotions involve action and movement in the body such as moving our arms around or changes in facial expression, heart rate and gut activity.

Feelings are what arise in reaction to emotions as a mental portrayal of what is going on in the body. The meaning of the reaction to the emotion is influenced by personal experience, beliefs and memories, which subconsciously become linked to that emotion. Due to the very personal meaning assigned to an emotion, very different feelings may come up in different people subjected to the same emotional signal. A walk on a beach may evoke feelings of joy in a teenager but grief in a person who has lost a family member in that environment.
We can send a quick emoji to friends and family to give them a hint of how we feel but unfortunately in our society we undervalue true displays of feelings, often seeing this as inappropriate with regard to age or gender. Our society often regards such displays as childish, effeminate, or weak and the antithesis of thought. Upbringing and life events may also have made us feel unsafe to show how we feel. Suppressing our feelings prevents us opening up to and being authentic with others, which can lead to fear, anxiety, insecurity, loneliness and depression. If we don’t have an emotional connection to others by showing feelings then we can end up feeling empty and disconnected from the world.
Emotions and feelings are linked. Even if we think about something we can trigger an emotional response.
We make decisions, live our lives and are driven in our behaviours according to how we react to emotions and the feelings that arise. Our experience of the world is thus affected by the interpretation of our emotions, our subsequent feelings, influencing how we interact with the world.
If we understand the difference between emotions and feelings then we can begin to change unhealthy behaviors, helping us find more peace and happiness in life. 
If we don't feel anything then how is the emotion expressed and where does it go?

Maybe it goes into the body organs, such as throat, chest or gut, resulting in mental and physical pathology. We may exhibit physical symptoms such as headaches and back pain or we may develop depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Or maybe the emotion is undifferentiated and emerges only as anger and irritation. We suffer by not expressing emotions and acknowledging our feelings.
BCST and Homeopathy...
can support us with getting in touch with our emotions and feelings by shifting and releasing ‘trapped’ emotions that we have experienced or not been able to express. Subtle changes may be observed in how we react to people, situations and in our behaviours so we are better able to enjoy and value life.
The most appropriate Homeopathic remedy is prescribed according to each person’s individual situation and history. This takes into account the unique physical, mental and emotional aspects of a person when dealing with emotional issues and feelings.
The gentle contact in a Craniosacral therapy session can help bring awareness to the body and choice to the process of unfold emotion and help to down regulate cycling emotional processing that feels out of control.
Regular Ayurvedic massage helps to calm the mind and sooth the emotions. You can receive great benefits by giving yourself a daily massage. Oils can be purchased from Sandra.
Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them coming but we can choose which one to surf

The properties of these oils are anti-aging, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory which can help relieve inflamed skin, skin with eczema, acne, sunburns and rashes.
