• Time and Healing

    Over the years I have seen several thousand types of injury’s. Some are easily healed and others are not going to be healed completely. I think all things can be improved and with time and direction amazing things can happen.

    The challenge comes in how long do you give a person to help you? I have seen hundreds of people that have been going to someone 3 times a week for a year and they are in pain all that time. I wonder what kind of sales pitch did that practitioner give to the client to keep them there. Also what is that practitioner thinking to keep a person that long with no feedback of improvement.

    In difficult cases, and sometimes in “simple” cases you will likely need a few people working on you. It is very difficult to know all the treatments for all the injuries out there. Often I get people who have been with someone for a while and ask why did they not reach out for other help. The reply is normally, ‘my last practitioner said other treatments would mess theirs up’.

    That can be true for short periods of time, I don’t like people seeing someone else for a couple of days after my treatments. However if I know who it is and how they work, I can accommodate it. I don’t like them going to the gym or other strenuous activities after the treatment as it lessens the effectiveness of it.

    Here’s my point. I spent 5 1/2 years going to therapy and in my opinion NOTHING helped, it was all a waste of time. If I was not in so much pain (or stupid depending on who you ask) I would have quit therapy and started smoking pot (which I never did). But one day in Salmon Arm at a workshop for Brain Gym, three women at the lunch break cured me of all my pain! It was like magic to me and worth all the previous effort.

    Sometimes it takes time to heal. I can tell you it is worth it.
