CLIENT CASE HISTORIES
Chronic shoulder, neck and elbow pain (Frozen shoulder)
Maria (not her real name) could hardly lift, or move her arms when I first saw her. She’d sought care from several health care practitioners without improvement. I performed the balancing protocols indicated and scheduled a follow-up in a week. She reported significant improvement at her next visit. I saw her for one more visit in a week’s time then told her to call me if she needed further assistance.
Two years later I heard from Maria. Her mother had just died. It had brought up a lot of unresolved, painful feelings for her. Soon after her shoulder and one arm had frozen up. She was in considerable pain. I balanced her shoulder girdle as indicated and performed active memory for issues around love, along with hydration and blood circulation protocols. At her follow-up visit in a week’s time she expressed how unbelievably good she’d felt since her session. I balanced the shoulder and neck areas as indicated. She was instructed to follow-up if needed in a month’s time.
Chronic neck, back and shoulder pain/headache/tennis elbow/insomnia/stress
Jim (not his real name) was a high profile, successful business man. He suffered with regular headaches, chronic pain, insomnia, and tennis elbow. He was under continual stress from his work. He enjoyed playing tennis; it was a way for him to work off stress and provided him with social time.
Jim responded well to his initial session of BodyTalk and Bowen Therapy. He needed his cortices balanced, as well as links for the endocrines and organs. Shoulder, elbow and wrist work was also indicated, to help him relax and free up his elbows. At his next visit he reported feeling great for several days after his session. He had begun taking an organic essential oil formula and felt it helped him tremendously with stress and sleep. Jim consistently improved with regular weekly sessions. After four weeks all of his symptoms had cleared. Jim now comes in for a monthly tune-up as preventative maintenance, or more frequently whenever he’s under more than usual stress from work.
Crohn’s Disease/Allergies/TMJ/Chronic shoulder & neck pain/Headache/Depression
Deborah (not her real name) came in initially for relief from an injury to her shoulder and neck. She’d sought care from several other health care practitioners with little relief. I performed the Body Chemistry protocol for food intolerances, allergies and parasites on different occasions with good result. She began taking a personal blend of organic essential oils to lift her spirits, help her sleep better, as well as help relieve her gastrointestinal discomfort. Her symptoms steadily improved. She was able to breathe more deeply, had full range of motion in her shoulder, and was no longer depressed. I saw her weekly for 6 visits and then for periodic sessions over a 3 month period.
Allergies/Chronic pain in shoulder, ankle and thumbs
Robert (not his real name) came in desperate about the chronic pain in his thumbs. He’d been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury and all the health care he’d received to date had been of no help. He needed the use of his hands for his work and was understandably concerned. A week previous he’d also injured his shoulder and ankle in a fall. Also, he was suffering from allergies. After his first session his shoulder and ankle were much better, almost100%. His allergies had also cleared significantly, but his thumbs still bothered him. At our next session a week later he reported feeling a shift in the pain in his thumbs, there was less discomfort and the area of pain had moved. By the fourth session the pain had almost entirely resolved in his thumbs. Robert expressed his having habitual fears around his thumbs and asked if an essential oil blend might be helpful. I created a formula for him to begin taking. When I saw him in a month’s time he reported continuing improvement with only a slight twinge in his thumbs. When I saw him again for a month follow-up visit he reported that his thumbs had made a complete recovery. Robert comes in periodically for routine health maintenance.
Migraine/Allergies/Plantar Wart/Shoulder pain
Mary (not her real name) had suffered with chronic migraines almost daily since adolescence. They were disabling, sending her to bed for lengthy periods. She also suffered from food intolerances, especially nuts and chocolate would trigger a migraine. She also had a large quarter-sized plantar wart which nothing had seemed to help. I balanced her cortices, performed the hydration protocol and other neuromuscular techniques as indicated. Several essential oils were indicated for her plantar wart, all known to have properties for combating fungal and viral infections.
When Mary came in for a follow-up she was delighted to report that she had not had a single headache since her treatment. She’d injured her shoulder a few days previous. Body Chemistry for food intolerances was indicated, along with viral infections. I balanced her shoulder girdle and performed the TMJ procedure for migraine and food intolerances. She was instructed to follow-up at the first signs of a headache.
Mary returned in 6 months time and reported that her shoulder had fully healed, her plantar wart no longer bothered her and had shrunk to the size of a pea. She’d had slight visual sensations that a headache might be coming on, so she had come in for a session as a preventative measure. I performed cortices and other balancing techniques, along with Body Chemistry for several food intolerances and instructed her to follow-up with me as needed. Mary comes in every few months, or so for a tune-up, but has yet to experience a headache since her first treatment. Her plantar wart has entirely disappeared.
Chronic shoulder girdle, upper back, neck pain, radiating into arms and hands/TMJ/Fearful
April (not her real name) was an artist and also cleaned houses for a living. She performed excessive repetitive movements with her upper torso, arms and hands. She was in excruciating pain and was extremely sensitive. Even the slightest touch would create waves of uncontrollable shaking in her upper back and arms. No one had been able to help her and she was desperate. She had come from an abusive household as a child and had a pattern of attracting abusive relationships with men. April didn’t trust her own judgment and was fearful of trusting anyone when we first met. Slowly we began to work. At her first visit I balanced her cortices and performed the hydration protocol, as well as consciousness issues as indicated. I also balanced several neuromuscular segments of her shoulder and arms and gave her exercises to do.
A week later when I saw her she was showing signs of improvement, but was still in pain. I did active memory links for issues around being loved and again did neuromuscular balancing for her shoulder, arms and hands as indicated. She began taking an essential oil formula for releasing trauma and to help her heal.
I worked weekly with April over a 6 week period and she steadily improved and was no longer in pain. She had entered a relationship with a man that she said was the healthiest she’d ever had. Two months passed before I saw April again. Her shoulder girdle pain had flared up. She was in the process of selling her home and moving to another town to begin a live-in relationship with the man she’d been seeing. She was feeling very vulnerable. I balanced her shoulders, arms and hands, along with balancing active memory and consciousness aspects as indicated. I gave her a new essential oil formula for helping with her transition and trusting herself.
Two months passed when I saw April again. She commented that every time she went through some major change her shoulders always seemed to act up. I balanced the neuromuscular segments indicated, along with cortices, and created an essential oil formula for enhancing spiritual awakening. I’ve not seen her since, that was 7 months ago.
Allergies/chronic neck and shoulder pain
Sara (not her real name) came to see me for a painful anterior deltoid muscle and restricted range of motion in her shoulder. She had radiating pain into her elbow and hand. She was in excruciating pain and had seen a number of health care practitioners with no improvement. I balanced neuromuscular segments related to shoulder, arm and hand, as well as her pelvis. I gave her exercises to help her recovery.
I saw Sara for a follow-up a week later. She was feeling good improvement. There was less severe pain, but her range of motion was still restricted. The primary area of pain had shifted to the top of both of her shoulders. Her allergies had cleared. We balanced the neuromuscular segments indicated for shoulder, arm, hand, pelvis and the knees. She was given additional exercises and scheduled for a follow-up. Her arms and shoulder were feeling less painful and her range of motion had improved considerably. This time we also balanced her TMJ for allergies. I gave her breathing exercises to open her diaphragm. I instructed her to follow-up if needed.
Sara came in for a session 6 weeks later. Her shoulder discomfort and arm pain had completely resolved and her allergies had entirely cleared. She had scheduled to see me for her knee; she’d injured it hiking over the weekend. I balanced her pelvis and knees as indicated and scheduled her for a week follow-up. She was instructed in exercises for her knees to help stabilize and strengthen them.
When I saw her in a week her knee was much improved, the swelling was down, but it still caused her some discomfort. We balanced the hamstring and knee as indicated. She was told to follow-up as needed.
Sara came in for an appointment 6 months later. She was under tremendous stress from an accelerated training at work. She was fighting off a viral infection and had a sore throat. Her anterior deltoid, this time on the opposite side, was tender. She’d had no problems during allergy season this year. I balanced her Body Chemistry for a virus, performed balancing techniques for her shoulders and arms and TMJ. I gave her Thieves Oil Plus with essential oils known to ward off bacteria and viruses. She was instructed to do her shoulder and breathing exercises. She scheduled for a one week follow-up.
When I next saw Sara she was greatly improved and over the “bug” she’d been fighting. The anterior deltoid pain was now intermittent. I balanced her shoulder girdle and she scheduled a one week follow-up as indicated.
At her next appointment Sara reported that her range of motion had greatly improved. I balanced her pelvis and hamstring and performed the TMJ and shoulder procedures as indicated. I told her to follow-up as needed.
Two months passed. Sara came in for lowback stiffness this time. Her other symptoms had resolved shortly after her last visit. I balanced her pelvis, hamstrings, and psoas. She was instructed in exercises to help her back and scheduled her for a 2 week follow-up. When I saw her it was the day before a major examination, the culmination of her training. Her stress was tremendous. I balanced cortices and performed the switching technique as indicated. Again pelvis, hamstring and psoas were balanced, along with TMJ. I gave her additional exercises to strengthen her lowback and an essential oil formula to help calm her nerves and focus her mind. I told her to follow-up as needed.
Sciatica/Shoulder, neck, elbow pain/fungal infection
Mike (not his real name) scheduled to see me for chronic back and sciatica pain. He had a very physical job and it was a concern for him as he wanted to continue his profession until retirement, another 20 years from now. I balanced his pelvis and shoulder, arms and elbows as indicated. He scheduled for a follow-up in a week.
At his next session Mike reported feeling much improvement. His shoulders, arms and elbows felt good. He complained of the sciatic pain radiating into the back of his leg. He also mentioned that he gets leg cramps. I balanced his pelvis again and kidney, along with shoulders. I instructed him in exercises to help maintain the balancing effects of his session. He scheduled for a week follow-up.
When I saw Mike he reported having further improvement although sitting still bothered him somewhat. He was taking a long plane trip and this concerned him. He mentioned that he had injured his tailbone in young adulthood when falling off a horse and had had problems since with his hips. I performed the Coccyx procedure and balanced his pelvis and knees as indicated. He was away on a business trip and would call for an appointment on his return.
Three weeks later Mike came in for a session. He’d done very well on his trip. Everything was feeling good. His hip and the sciatica bothered him some still though he hadn’t had any leg cramps for some time now. I balanced his pelvis and kidneys as indicated and told him to follow-up as needed.
Six months passed when I heard from him. He was experiencing some lumbar pain, but with no radiating symptoms. I performed balancing techniques for his kidneys, hamstrings, psoas and sacrum as indicated. He scheduled for a one week follow-up. After his session he reported feeling some unwinding symptoms then on the second day after he was pain free. His back had stiffened up slightly the last day, or so. Again I balanced kidney, pelvis and psoas. I also performed a coccyx technique and balanced his knees as indicated. He was given exercises to help him maintain the balancing effects of his treatment and scheduled for a week follow-up. His back was entirely fine, but his shoulder was bothering him. I balanced his shoulders as indicated and reminded him about which exercises to do. He scheduled for a routine health maintenance session in four weeks.
When Mike came in he reported feeling well. He had a little tingling sensation in his arms. He also told me about a toe nail fungus he’d had for 20 years. I balanced him for hydration and performed the Body Chemistry protocol for fungus. I balanced cortices, endocrines, blood circulation and organs, along with some neuromuscular balancing as indicated. I gave him an essential oil formula for nail fungus. He scheduled for a six weeks health maintenance session.
At his next session Mike reported feeling the best he had in years! His toe nails looked normal, no nail fungus. I balanced several links and his pancreas reflex, cortices and scars, along with neuromuscular balancing techniques as indicated. He scheduled for a six week health maintenance follow-up, saying how great he felt and how wonderful the work was that I did.
