Siobhan Wilcox's Theraphi report November 7, 2016
I came for Theraphi treatment because I was struggling to work due to a number of injuries. The first was a whiplash injury I received in a motor vehicle accident in 1994 which I further aggravated when playing underwater hockey. Then in 2010 a MRI showed a disc herniation in cervical spine, C4/5 – more on the right than on the left and disc herniation also at C5/6. This had never really been a problem until about a month ago when I started to experience numbness and tingling and a sensation of cold in the ulnar distribution of the right forearm and 5th digit. This was further aggravated by my work as a chiropractor as well as by sitting and driving.
I had eight sessions over one week in the Theraphi in Dargle South Africa. During my first session I felt the left side of my body ‘wobble’. There was a mild sensation of pulling in the scar on my neck and when lying on my stomach for the last 3 sessions I felt an aching sensation in my sacroiliac joints. After the sessions I felt a fair amount of popping and crackling in my ears.
The results have been amazing!! I have no symptoms anymore (except a mild awareness of my neck while I am working) but otherwise good. My pelvis has no more discomfort – it also feels more stable – almost as if an incorrect motor pattern has been changed. My energy levels are much better. My ears and sinuses are clearer. I have also found that stress is more manageable.
This has been of enormous value to me. It has allowed me to continue to work instead of being forced to rest (which I may have had to do in order to allow for some healing to happen). I am looking forward to the remote sessions which I believe are going to be fantastic too. The more my body can heal itself on an ongoing basis the more likely I am to be able to work symptom free too.
