Case Study - Mrs. C., Female, 50 years
I was recommended by another practitioner who had been working with Mrs. C. for a while. Previous to this she had been receiving regular counselling sessions for 2 years. She felt that a joint treatment of Shiatsu and Energy Field Healing would be beneficial. My partner who is an Energy Field Healer and I often work together this way if there is a block in the energy that needs clearing in an initial first treatment.
When first meeting Mrs. C, she was very anxious, fearful and tearful and in her words 'I felt broken'.
During her first joint treatment, we focussed on her grounding so she could feel safe and supported while working on clearing out general clutter from her energy field. With Shiatsu being a hands on therapy, this helped relax and release stagnation in her body. She felt calmer and relaxed after her treatment but would need a great deal of support from us to help her through as she didn't feel safe and supported within herself.
She came once a week to start with for Shiatsu but also received phone support when she felt tearful or anxious.
Over the course of the treatments she received it came up that she had been in a controlling and abusive relationship with her ex husband. Her own Father was very critical of her so she felt she wasn't good enough and was always trying to please him.
Having no control, feeling insecure, needing to please others and feeling dis-empowered in her life put considerable strain on her kidney energy. The kidneys hold the emotion of fear and when we don't feel supported or nurtured within ourselves we can feel anxious. The earth also gives us the support we need so by focusing on grounding helps reduce the anxiety and fear so we become calmer and less stressed.
During this time she didn't have the emotional strength to be in another relationship with anyone as she wanted to heal herself first as the likely-hood she would meet someone similar to her ex husband. She made a conscious decision to stay single.
Recommendations and aftercare
After 6 months of support and Shiatsu, and given the tools to take care of her own energy she now feels confident, positive, trusting of herself and supported. This has been empowering and transformational time for her, taking charge of her own life, being in control and happy and not taking things people say to heart.
The relationship with her Father is now much better in that he no longer criticises her and is warm and open to her.
She has regular Shiatsu treatments every 4 weeks as a support and maintenance top-up to rebalance her energy.
"I feel so contented in myself for the first time ever and feel positive about life still"
