The beauty of the Gillespie Approach is that a lay person can become skilled in this work without a medical education.
You may be a mom who has read all the posts and wondered, “Wouldn’t it be great if I could help my family?” Well, you can.
You may also say that, since Barry is the grand puba of this work, only he can get these results. Well, I beg to differ.
Everyone has a different story to tell with their many traumas. We trust that the body knows best how to heal itself.
We just need to hold and allow it to do what it needs to do to correct itself. We are just facilitating the healing.
Even though I probably know more about this work than anyone on the planet, when I touch a patient, we are equals.
I would even go further and say that if you are listening to the body more attentively, you could have a better patient outcome.
I always felt, as a teacher, that my students had the potential to exceed my capabilities. I will teach them everything I know, and they will build on that foundation.
With the infant work, I know some graduates are more skilled than me. I also feel that someday the hospital therapists, who will do this therapy full time, will accelerate the effectiveness of the work.
So if you are that mom, don’t sell yourself short. Let Kim and Holly train you to help your family.
