I took my sister, Lauren Mitchell, to see Dr. G. today! She has been complaining of neck and upper/middle back pain for a long time. Her journey with him began with the work and treatment that her daughter Makenzie received at just 7 days new. At one point during her early weeks of breastfeeding, her milk was not coming in quickly due to fascia strain. With some CFT that was easily changed. She never took anytime for her body to be worked on getting into the deep layers of fascia that hold onto years of trauma going all the way back to utero. It was always addressing Makenzie’s tightness or issues like breastfeeding. Well today was the day!
When you walk into Dr. G.’s office, you know you are there on a journey but you are never really quite sure where that journey is going to take you. Deep in the layers of your body’s fascia hold a story.
Her body naturally went into an arch starting high up into her neck. These pictures show that she was an archer in utero with the cord wrapped around her neck. You can clearly see the red marks/lines that resemble exactly where the umbilical cord was wrapped, most likely several times. The fascia remembers the trauma from the cord being wrapped and when you take your first breath that’s when it kicks in! Fascia remembers the birth trauma! Fascia remembers all of the trauma!
My message is that treatment at birth or within a week of birth is so crucial because, if you wait too long, the fascia is locked in and the body has compensated. That is when the symptoms start to present themselves: TMJ, tongue tie, torticollis, latching issues, colic, chronic ear infections, migraines, ADD and ADHD, speech delay—just to name a few.
