Pain Relief should be more than just treating the symptoms.
If you have been told by doctors that there is nothing else they can do for you, and you still have pain. If you have tried almost everything --pain medication, surgery, chiropractic, traditional physical therapy, exercise, injections, acupuncture, massage or pain management counseling--and your pain symptoms have returned, then I invite you to keep on reading, or click on the tabs above, to learn about specific pain relief treatments. Be encouraged. There is still hope. Pain relief is possible.
In my 30+ years as a physical therapist, and a patient myself, I believe that our reliance on traditional medicine to treat the symptoms of pain has cost us dearly. Physicians have been taught, until recently, to treat diseases instead of people. Medical providers do not have the time to really listen to their patients. Their attention is split between a computer screen and their client. In many cases, the provider does not even touch the patient as part of a physical exam. Tests may be ordered, or a prescription written, but there is little connection between the caregiver and the patient. We have trusted technology over touch, and tried to mend broken bodies, while neglecting broken spirits. Still, there is hope.
Emmanuel's Touch Therapy
grew out of my desire to help people by treating them the way I would want to be treated. I have been privileged to connect with hundreds of people over the years who have struggled with pain and injury, and tried numerous types of treatment without success. Empathy is at the heart of this journey. I do not have all the answers, but I have walked in your shoes. I have experienced pain and frustration as a patient, and as a practicing physical therapist. I know, however, that treatments like Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Release work. As a person of faith, I know that I am called to do this work, and feel blessed to be able to share the journey of prayer & healing with so many. All are welcome: adults, seniors, teens, & children. People of all faiths & backgrounds, believers, & skeptics.
