At IntegrativeWellness Group, I work with an amazing group of talented practitioners. All offer a method of healing that work within the body’s innate framework to heal itself from illness and injury. On July 1st, I was volunteering in the toddler room at my church. I briskly picked up a crying and injured toddler who had been pushed to the ground. An hour later I realized I had injured back in doing so. Later that evening I was in tears, the pain worse then childbirth and I could hardly walk! Chris, a.k.a. Shiatsu extraordinaire met me and my husband at IWG. His method helped me so much that I was able to walk back to my car with minimal pain. The next morning the pain returned with a vengeance. That afternoon I had Chris work on me again followed by Dave, a gifted Chiropractor. who pointed out to me that my hips were misaligned by at least an inch! Can you feel my pain?! After several adjustments within one appointment I felt the difference! However, I wasn’t done. I then had a treatment by Heidi, an exceptional Acupuncturist, who further helped my healing by reducing the inflammation and tenderness in so many of my muscles. That’s me in the photo with hair-like thin acupuncture needles in my back and the “suction” cups! Chris also advised me to work on strengthening my abdominal muscles while Heidi counseled me on stretching my hamstring muscles. In other words, I got the “works” from my fellow practitioners, the same works that all clients get. It took a couple of more sessions with each of these amazing practitioners to relax my muscles, realign my back and eliminate the inflammation before I was fully healed. I am truly blessed by Chris, Dave and Heidi and their natural healing methods!
