So a few weeks ago, due to reasons I shall not get in to, I began to see a D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy). Look it up. I’m not much on labels, more into the person behind them. So this guy is planning to move far away in a month, and is located in the basement of a building where the nurses cook their lunches on a hot plate. Seriously, I had every right to get up and leave. Never to return. Just the smell alone.
He’s also tall, humble as the day is long, gentle and unreasonably kind. I was hooked, probably, in the first five minutes.
Because he actually listened to me. I was used to doctors (Medical Doctors) telling me that what I described was not possible, the body doesn’t work that way, you name it – I heard it. But I didn’t give up (or more accurately, I gave up temporarily). He’s a healer – I’m drawn to them, like bears to honey. You know the saying, “You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince,” well I’m that way with doctors. But it’s worth it cause I find the best ones.
He’s done more for me in two weeks than others that I’ve seen for years. I believe he will heal me enough, and as much, as I am ready for now. When I describe the sensations I’m feeling to him (which are waves of energy rushing through my body) he’s thrilled and explains that’s the cranial-sacral fluid (don’t quote me on this – maybe it’s chi?) flowing through me. It appears that’s supposed to happen and does when we become unblocked.
He recognizes, was actually trained to understand, the physical, emotional, and mental connections of a human being. So he says, “When I see you next, I’m going to work on your right side, there’s trauma there, and I want you to think about the emotions and thoughts that come with that. We released some today, but only about 20%.” Meanwhile, he’s right. I had a car accident where a car plowed into my right side, and I didn’t know if I’d live. Consider the emotion in that!
I feel as though every part of me is being treated, from a physical (massage-like way – only it hurts sometimes) standpoint. It’s quite remarkable. I went in for one issue, but I’m being cared for on many more levels of health. This is one time I’m getting more than I’m paying for.
