In early 2000, after enduring back pain, physical therapy, medications and in line for back surgery #2, I decided to try an alternative option to hopefully eliminate the pain and distress that I had been suffering for a long time. The pain was so staggering that I could hardly move, couldn't pick up my young daughter, and couldn't think of going through another back surgery. A friend of mine told me of a NeuroMuscular Therapist that relieved her from pain. At that point, I was willing to try anything before going under the knife, again. Long story short, after just a handful of sessions, I began to feel better and within a short time, I became pain free, I was a new person, free of pain. It was not a skeletal problem at all, but a muscular spasm that had me locked up so terribly long that there was no circulation, no nutrients and no oxygen going to my contracted muscles. My physicians first diagnosis was surgery, but thanks to my friend for making me aware of a noninvasive way of healing, I was pain free. Hence, I was thrown into a new way of thinking, an alternative medacine encompassing pain relief and preventative therapies. I went back to school, earning a 4.0 in my new found calling, and I am helping people that are experiencing pain and agonizing discomfort from unknown muscular disorders.
