The following are true stories of the clients I have served. Their identities have been concealed but the lessons learned from their stories may have resonance to your situation or your loved ones.
True story about Lisa’s chronic neck pain-
When I saw Lisa, she has already been on an intensive search for alleviating her chronic neck and shoulder pain for 3 years.
Nothing has produced sustained relief despite seeing various doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractic specialists, and taking tons of supplements.
I used a relatively new technique called Brainspotting with Lisa, finding a brain spot correlating with the most intense pain in her neck.
Soon, memories of deep pain and grief associated with hardship in childhood came through like a faucet.
Within a few sessions, Lisa’s neck pain reduced by 75% which allowed her to take her kids out on hikes something she was not able to do for years.
Needless to say that Lisa was thrilled about her new found freedom from pain!
True story about Susan’s chronic neck pain-
Susan is smart, hardworking and loves her job. She was never aware of the invisible pull which has been gradually increasing from the small company where she worked for the past 15 years.
Because of Susan’s devotion, she not only increased her workload but also started to branch into business management, and soon managing her boss’ wellbeing by making sure that her boss is seeing mental health professionals to keep his addiction under control.
Susan suffered chronic fatigue, brain fog, and digestive issues which she often blames as “Lyme flare ups”.
When I coached Susan, it became clear to Susan that her whole being was "off-center".
She had been pulled forward energetically by her employer resulting in her constant and unrelenting tension in the head, neck, and back areas.
After Susan was made aware that she had crossed her boundary as an employee, and that by “mothering” her boss, she lost herself in this no-win fight to keep the company afloat which was not hers to begin with.
Susan became clear with what was in alignment with her highest wellbeing and made plans to change her employment choices.
She is now enjoying life and no longer incurring tons of medical bills which resulted from “being off-center”.
True story about Linda’s chronic neck pain-
Linda is an attractive, spiritual and accomplished professional. She complained of feeling listless, anxious, and suffered chronic neck and back pain.
When I inquired about the chronic pain, Linda said that it felt like she was carrying bricks on her shoulders. I asked: How heavy are those bricks? Linda: About 50 lbs.
Just imagine if you carried 50 extra lbs. of burden on you body day in and day out, how they would affect your energy level, your posture, and your mood?
Through the process of Medical Constellation, Linda realized that those burdens were not hers but her mother’s who went through difficult tests in life such as deportation, divorce, and extreme family upheavals.
Linda peeled through layers of grief, disappointment, and guilt which belonged to her mother.
Eventually, Susan was able to find peace when she said to her mother in a meditation: Dear mom, I leave those bricks with you where they belong. There is nothing I can do to lift them for you. However, I will live a liberated life, in honor of you!
What is the truth behind YOUR chronic neck pain?
