SHEN Therapy is a breakthrough approach to emotional health, a radically new understanding of how emotion influences the body and the mind. Much more than an emotional triggering technique or a learned repetitive suppression of internalized responses, SHEN is a deep process of personal emotional unfolding, de-layering and growth.
SHEN is best known for its superb results with any condition where retained traumatic experiences have impacted either psychological or physical functioning.
SHEN has proven an effective and predictable therapy, solidly based in physics and physiology, and developed in over 30 years of clinical research and professional application.

Heart of England SHEN Therapy Centre Approach to Health
Heart of England SHEN Therapy Centre follows the age-old principle that emotional heath and well-being is both the foundation of physical health and the basis of sound healthy relationships.
Emotions do this because, as our work in SHEN has shown, they occur in and influence the biofield that suffuses and affects our physical bodies and our brains. We have shown that old, deeply embedded painful emotions are frequently the primary factor in physical ailments, because when we clear the old painful emotions, many of these ailments dramatically improve or end entirely. Old, embedded painful emotions also affect the way we respond to life and to those around us.
We find that when we clear these old emotions with SHEN, our current emotional state changes and our lives and relationships naturally change for the better.
General Information about SHEN Therapy
A revolutionary approach to emotional health, SHEN Physio-Emotional Relief Therapy merges a radical, breakthrough concept of how emotion works with the recently defined physics of the biofield the source of the body’s emotions into a powerful process of emotional change and personal growth, one that works from the inside and is far faster than other approaches.
Developed over twenty-five years ago by American scientist Richard R. Pavek, SHEN is much more than an emotional triggering process. It is a deep process of emotional unfolding, de-layering and growth based on a unique concept of the nature of emotion, its effects on the body, and its effects on the brain. Because of this, it can safely accelerate recovery from severe emotional traumas such as childhood trauma, sexual abuse, grief and loss, spiritual emergence reaction (Kundalini Awakening), emotionless states as well as confusion and disorientation following accidents.
The power of our emotions
Few doubt the power of our emotions; the best uplift and enhance our lives, while the worst distress our bodies, inflame our imaginings, sabotage our reason, and negatively affect all our actions. We may not like it, but our emotions rule the way we live our lives. How do they do this, and why are they so powerful?
In our early research, we discovered that painful emotions such as fear, grief, or hopelessness trigger the Auto-Contractile Pain Reflex, an instinctive spasm intended to stop tissue damage from broken bones, and that these emotion-contractions gripped and upset the heart, stomach and/or other nearby organs. Since the brain has no control over spasmodic contractions, they continue to upset the body for as long as the emotional pain continues – often for many years.
How SHEN works with Emotion
SHEN is a scientifically researched and painstakingly verified, updated version of ancient hands-on healing techniques. Properly applied to specific areas of the body in precise patterns that were identified by extensive research, this Western therapy uses the naturally occurring low-level electromagnetic field (the biofield) produced by the human body itself to resolve many kinds of chronic pain that cannot be traced to physical causes, as well as to release emotional blockages and psychological distress.
In essence SHEN works like this: Using the biofield qi (ch’i) from our hands, we first loosen the contractions trapping the painful emotions deep inside the body, then we reposition our hands to lift the emotions to the surface where they can dissipate. This process is repeated as necessary and sets the stage for a sound, positive emotional shift.
Once the old painful emotions have been dissipated, the deeper empowering emotions of confidence, joy, and love are freed to establish a robust, resilient emotional core upon which to shift one’s life.
SHEN Therapy also promotes relaxation, relieves acute and chronic pain to varying, often significant degrees, enhances health and well-being, and is useful for personal insight, growth, and for transforming old physical and emotional wounds into experiential awareness – in other words, “personal empowerment.”
SHEN, a thoroughly Western therapy, uses the naturally occurring low-level electromagnetic field – the ‘biofield’ produced by the human body itself to relax and release both physical and emotional pain held in the body.
