Is it possible to recover from pain, illness and dysfunction, without medicine? Without drugs? YES!!! I have recovered from chronic illness without medication. Click here for My Healing Story. I have also recovered from an old sports injury, joint pain and stress without drugs, herbs or surgery.

Last year, I was recommended to have CranioSacral Therapy (CST) by my biological dentist, Dr. Oras of Progressive Dentistry. Dr. Oras had removed my amalgams a few years back and I now go to him for a yearly check-up. He detected an energetic block in my jaw and asked me a very unusual question.

“Do you have any pain on the right side of your body?”

As a matter of fact, I did. My right knee. I was getting sharp pains in my right knee when I went hiking. Was this pain a result of an energetic block? He suggested I make an appointment with Kathy Moser of Balanced Health and Healing, a gifted CranioSacral Therapist who happens to be 10 minutes from my home.

CST is a light touch, “hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system- comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.” CST “encourages the body’s natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of the brain and spinal cord, dissipate the negative effects of stress, and enhances general health and resistance to disease.”

CST is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction including:

Migraine Headaches
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Motor-Coordination Impairments
Central Nervous System Disorders
Orthopedic Problems
Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Infantile Disorders
Learning Disabilities
Chronic Fatigue
Emotional Difficulties
Stress and Tension-Related Problems
Fibromyalgia and other Connective Tissue Disorder
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
Neurovascular and Immune Disorders
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Post-Surgical Dysfunction

Somato Emotional Release (SER) is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of  residual effects of trauma.”

From The Upledger Institute.

As for me, CST has been a life changing, profound experience. I had no idea what to expect  the first time  I walked into Kathy’s tranquil healing room. After telling  Kathy my story, I laid down on the massage table and  she covered me with a blanket.

The instant she lightly touched my feet, I felt an energetic swoosh going through my body. I never felt this feeling before. It was...magical!

Kathy then asked me, “What are you thinking?”

My thoughts immediately zeroed in on the time I was about 19 and full of doubts about myself and my future. Through my teen years, I also had a difficult relationship with my mother. We were always arguing and never seeing eye to eye.  Coincidentally this was also the time, that I hurt my knee.

Memories of this painful time began to pop up out of nowhere and tears started streaming down my face. As I released this past trauma, a huge wave of lightness enveloped me. My body felt like it was floating above the table and sensation of complete peace enveloped me.

Then Kathy slowly began to cradle my head and then my knee. As she did, she spoke in soft, gentle yet firm words.

“This feeling that you are feeling right now is who you really are. You are energetic. You are pure love. You are peace. You are joy. This is your natural state of being. See your mother being surrounded by peace, love and joy. We all come from the same source. We are all One. We are all one with God. We are all pure spirit. Pure energy. Pure divinity. Pure love.”

I am  divine energy. I could feel it. I visualized a white light of pure love and forgiveness streaming from my central core and extending to my mother and all my loved ones. It was incredible.  If only I could stay in this wonderful state of total bliss forever!

Interestingly enough,  I have noticed “wonderful states of bliss and  well-being”  popping up in my life recently. Kathy is not only a skilled CranioSacral Therapist but my holistic mentor. She is helping me to think in a loving and joyful way. She is helping me to connect to my Spiritual Self and disconnect my egoic thoughts of fear, guilt, anger, resentment, seeing myself as a victim,  etc. She is helping me to change my perspective of myself and my loved ones. In essence, Kathy is helping me to stay healthy in mind, body and spirit.

Changing egoic thoughts is an on going process. We have been conditioned to think with our ego mind. When we let go of these negative thoughts, our lives begin to change for the better. All problems begin as a thought and all thoughts can be changed. When your perspective on the problem changes, it is not a problem anymore. It is a lesson.

The lesson that Kathy taught me was that my knee pain was a manifestation of seeing myself as a victim and seeing my mother as the cause for my problems. This negative thought was still in my thought process. As I visualized myself and my mother in a healing, loving white light, my problem RESOLVED!

It only took one session with Kathy to resolve my knee pain and one session to resolve my joint pain.

Yes, it is possible to heal without medicine!  CST and SER make this a reality!

Kathy is now part of my holistic path of wellness and my life journey. My life journey of “taking charge of my mind and choosing thoughts of balance, harmony and peace.”  A journey of living a happy and healthy life.

And most of all… a  journey of healing through forgiveness work..

Forgiveness, after all,  is the ultimate healer.

Forgiveness....heals your soul....
