Since I began my treatment on Monday in Miami, Florida, I’ve had a wonderful experience. Leslie, my Therapist, is warm, welcoming, friendly and extremely down to earth; so you can bet that her and I get along great!
Where treatment is concerned, she’s admitted to me that there is a lot of work to be done. I have endured several accidents and injuries in my life; therefore there is a good load of issues to address internally.
She started by conducting a detailed assessment of my alignment, personal history and medical history and she made lots of notes. My body is completely twisted and rotated. One shoulder comes forward, one hip is higher and forward, my neck and head are slightly to one side and my tailbone is extremely bent forward and drastically bent to the right.
If you don’t know already, the purpose of my visit with Clear Passage is actually to regain hormonal balance, a menstrual cycle and ultimately fertility. After much research, I strongly believe that my tailbone injury is the cause of my Premature Ovarian Failure. Actually, it was only when I stumbled upon the Clear Passage website that I even came up with this hypothesis…but it just makes so much sense! Here is a clip from their website:
“The dura is a fascial sweater that surrounds the spinal cord, from the bottom of the tailbone at the coccyx to the base of the skull. From there, it enters the skull through a silver dollar-sized hole to surround the brain and all the tissues within it. This includes the sphenoid bone, which houses the pituitary-hypothalamus. Sheaths of the dura also surround and infuse with the pituitary itself.
During the course of therapy, we use a whole body approach, addressing the spinal cord, dura and all of their attachments, from head to tailbone. Any dysfunction in this system, which is responsible for a countless number of activities, can have profound effects on various areas of the body.
We knew that the tissues within the skull (including the pituitary) should react to adhesive pulls similarly to other tissues in the body. We found that when we treated the dura and its attachments all the way into the brain, we saw dramatic improvements in FSH levels and numerous full-term pregnancies in women diagnosed hormonally infertile.”
Anyways, back to treatment. Leslie is spending a lot of time externally and, yes, internally trying to release the soft tissue that’s become extremely tight around my tailbone. She’s also begun trying to move the tailbone back into place slowly so that it is no longer lodged forward and off to the side.
At the same time, she’s also working on my skull and brain, trying to pull everything back up slowly so that it’s no longer being yanked down towards the buttocks. It’s not a fast treatment, it’s slow and progressive and she flips back and forth between my tailbone – to buy it some room – and my brain, skull and jaw to pull everything upwards slowly.
Additionally, Leslie is also addressing many of my other problems, which she believes could be associated. She’s been working on my Kidney’s, Small Intestines and Uterus a lot externally to help breakdown and release adhesions (internal scarring) that have developed and have been affecting my organ function since I was a child. These internal scar tissues can wrap around and almost tie down organs and prevent them from getting blood flow and from swaying gently internally like they are supposed to.
How does treatment feel? Well, externally, imagine someone pressing down very hard on a bruise. Leslie presses deep into my stomach and finds certain organs and tightness, then she kind of pulls back and holds her hands there for 5 – 10 minutes until I feel a release and the pain subsides. Again, it’s slow and methodical.
Internally, it’s very odd. When she touches my tailbone, I can feel like a gentle pop sensation. When she touches the tissues around it and along my internal walls, there is some pressure (sometimes more than others), but I can also feel the soft tissue releasing and relaxing – it’s like a bubbling popping sensation as well.
Overall, there is some pain but Leslie works with me and talks me through all of it. Personally, I never tell her to go lightly haha, I just say, “do what you have to do and I will just deal with it,” I’m really here to get myself put back together so I can function properly. If this means some temporary pain, then so be it!
Today, Leslie is going to go back to my tailbone, then work on my cranial area and then work inside my mouth – yes, the jaw is VERY much affected by the positional changes she makes to my tailbone.
Right now I’m feeling a bit sore in some places, a little tired (I get very tired after the daily 4-hours of treatment) and I also feel a little twisted (which is funny, because I’m actually straighter – it’s just twisted to me!).
Overall, I feel like I’m getting places with this treatment and I’m excited. Leslie is VERY confident that this is my cause, so she has no doubts. Me, I’m trying to stay grounded and not get my hopes too high. Let’s see how things go! It will take 3 weeks after treatment for my body to adjust to its new alignment, which sadly means no exercise L But I guess I gotta do what I gotta do!
