What have we done with this gentleman? Listened to him and look at him then taking a person centered approach we have used a combination of soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, stretching along with discussing at length the link between stress and physical symptom. All in all a great outcome for both this gentleman and myself as I love improving quality of life and he has got quality of life back.
Next on the treatment front was a meeting from a young man who was referred to me by a Thai boxer who is also a client of mine; This young man presented with acute pains in his shoulders and chest/upper back along with intermitent lumber aches and pains. During the fact finding part of the session we establish that he has had a tough life and that he was probably exhibiting his mental and emotional pain as physical symptom. As a weight trainer and fighter I was surprised at how open he was to accept this, but the more we talked the more I came to realise that this young man had many layers and was well read in holistic work. Skillfull Soft tissue manipulation coupled with joint mobilization and some stretching reduced his symptom to almost gone. The plan now is to move into holistic work and on his next visit we will be splitting his time between physical treatment and an introduction to a Reiki treatment, a brave step for a tough young man!
Next was a session of hypnotherapy working with a young 12 year old budding football star aiding him in his desire to be more confident in his own abilities. Such a joy to work with such a willing and keen young mind who is open to explore the power of his own mind at such a young age.
Life is good, Love and light to all.
