An old back injury flared up as it has over the years (for no apparent reason), but this time in the most intense way and with the most pain it had ever caused me. Days, weeks, months went by with no reprieve. Chiropractors, doctors, yoga, physical therapy, ice and heat, healers of all kinds did their best to help, with minimal and temporary relief. Prescription pain meds, considering steroid injections and even surgery - I would have done whatever it took to get out of the constant agony. My very active and physical life came to a screeching halt as standing for more than 5 minutes became excruciating.
At a party, I sat in the same chair throughout because I couldnít get up. Jocelyn, stranger at the time, settled in beside me. After I told her my story, she quite confidently offered to help. After all I had been through, I was skeptical.
Help - what an understatement. A hands-on way of healing I had never heard of. I was astounded at the changes taking place in my body after only a few sessions with her. Remarkably, I soon was able to come out of the pain. My back untwisted, unlocked and became a welcome part of my body again. A true celebration.
After the immediate distress was under control, it took some time and regular sessions to be able to integrate my body, to move freely and without fear as I had imagined and hoped. Regular and cherished monthly treatments now assure me that the desperate situation I was in wonít be repeated. Habitual, fixed body holding patterns that have not served me well (some that only now I'm aware of), are being transformed and freed, allowing me an obvious and noticeable sense of ease, balance and comfort. I am pain-free, so very grateful, and still in awe of this amazing work.
