Helping with cancer …
Let’s just say that this client of mine was never interested in anything holistic whatsoever but after being diagnosed with terminal cancer and having a pain in his shoulder of a 9 out of 10 for a year, he asked me if I would give him a session.
As a practitioner we never know how a session is going to go, this is the part I love about BodyTalk. It is the clients’ body that determines the priority and what needs to be addressed.
During the session his shoulder started to get really hot and painful and he actually said to me “What are you doing – it’s getting more painful”? I reassured my client that this meant we were right on the spot.
Prior to the session he couldn’t stand up for any period of time, in fact he would get up out of his seat, walk a short distance to where he needed to go and then sit down again. When the session had finished he walked back into his lounge and wouldn’t sit down. I asked him if he was OK as he was rolling his shoulders. He said the pain had nearly completely gone away – and after having that pain for a year he was amazed!
He had an appointment with his doctor the next morning and said that his doctor was amazed to hear about his experience. This one session gave him relief for several days however due to his bowel and liver cancer being extremely advanced it was only short term relief.
After another session I got a phone call from him the next morning to say “What the bloody hell did you do to me last night? I’ve only just woken up and normally I wake six or seven times during the night. That was the best sleep I have ever had!” I laughed out loud – what a great phone call to get from your brother.
We had lots of laughs but as any of you know who have ever had a family member who has suffered from terminal cancer, it is a horrible thing and there is nothing nice about it. I felt very privileged that this modality I had learnt was able to give him some small relief from pain during those last few weeks. He went from being a non-believer of this type of treatment to being my biggest advocate and I will never forget those sessions with my brother.
