The body is both a source and a storage site for the emotions, especially after a trauma. Overwhelming traumatic events are subconsciously retained by “Hun” and “Po”. The reactivation of these subconscious emotional and physical memories, are experienced as a variety of psychological and physical manifestations, quite often un-related to a given situation. These conditions may range from un-explained physical pains or physiological reactions, to emotional or psychological manifestations as seen in phobias, personality disorders, panic attacks or PTSD, just to mention a few.

Furthermore, these subconscious memories contribute to the formation of mental patterns and “Belief mechanisms”. Acupuncture strategies for releasing the “Body memories” constitute an important stage of treating the “Hidden Roots of Disease”.
