Relief from Pain is often involved in our communities, because we know how important community is to charities. But communities are not only important for the support of healing charities, but they are an important aspect of patient empowerment and the entire healing process.
Sometimes those dealing with chronic pain and energy imbalance can feel extraordinarily alone. Having a community and seeing others who share similar experiences can be incredibly empowering for those who are suffering. When we find other people who we can relate to, it can encourage people to seek help, to try alternative medicine, seek relief in different ways, rather than only suffering in silence.
Additionally, communities empower patients through empathy and understanding. Some chronic pain and imbalanced people can feel as though others don't believe their suffering because it is not always visible. Communities that rally around causes like Relief from Pain show sufferers that there is support and those who can empathize with how they are feeling, which can empower people to talk about their ailments, and then potentially have better access to treatments that can help them.
Communities and recovery
We've talked about how human connection and interaction is so important for energy healing. Human touch itself is restorative, and communities can provide a safe space for people to go through their recovery journeys.
Many people can benefit from being involved as volunteers, joining healers, clients, and other supporters who can be included in the mission of helping each other. The recovery process is not something that should be done alone, and supporting other people who may be struggling is what makes this kind of work so important.
Even online communities are important for recovery and empowerment, because they can answer questions, provide encouragement, and share resources that can be crucial in the process.
One great example of an online/offline community, helping in recovery is the MacMillan Cancer Support Group. Through their numerous charitable events, online networks for information and support, they are helping those battling cancer to benefit from engaging with others. They also offer involvement for families of those suffering, as well as other community members who want to be part of helping further research and support for this devastating disease. Through the support group, many people can find the resources they need for help and recovery.
Communities are a supportive environment
And this is also a reason - as a thank you and allowing people to join a community - why Relief from Pain organized the Healing Garden Festival. Since we know how important communities are for support, healing, and health, we want to invite you to join us this fall.
