Phantom Pain

Amputees often have what is called "phantom pain", that is pain that they feel in an area of their body which is no longer attached. This pain is not in the mind. It is real. The physically manifested body may not be there, but the energetic body is. The pain is the disharmony in the energetic pathway prior to manifestation. So what do you do? As a practitioner, I listen to the pulses and work with the flow indicated. I place my fingertips where the body would be, if it were present and work as usual.
