Healing Emotional and Physical Trauma
Another family is seeing, firsthand, the value of receiving CFT immediately after birth. I have been working with the mother for 14 months. She presented with headaches, neck pain, anxiety, insomnia and panic attacks, leaving her unable to breathe. She had visited a hospital several times due to these episodes.
Her history includes a substantial amount of physical and emotional trauma. She suffered from endometriosis, which became unbearable during her third and last pregnancy. This cost her greatly in that it resulted in a hysterectomy. During this last pregnancy, this woman was a witness to her younger sister’s tragic death. The loss was painful and devastating, but she pushed this grief down and aside to take care of her family.
Through CFT sessions, her body has worked through these physical traumas. The restrictions from her pelvis and hysterectomy scars were bearing down on her sternum and cranium. After these freed up, her symptoms were eliminated. She commented that she has now been able to accept and find peace with the loss of her sister. She has reconnected to her body and worked through the grief of the hysterectomy and the loss of future children. She said all of these emotions were suppressed in her body for years, and she now feels light.
A few months ago, this mother shared with me the difficulties that she was having with her two youngest children on a daily basis. She described these difficulties as what she thought was “normal” for children. They were very fussy eaters and unable to eat what she considered to be ample enough food to support growth. They would sit at the table and push their food around and have to be reminded to eat—in her words. They were also emotionally very sensitive.
After five CFT treatments and some difficult healing responses, she has now reported that they are unstoppable with eating. They eat a variety of food and family meals are now enjoyable and stress free. They are also extremely happy and seem to be able to mange their emotions. She shared with me that after every treatment, they would become unbearably emotional with long episodes of crying and needing extra attention. I asked her what she thought her children were working through? She said without a pause: “My pain from my endometriosis. I wish I knew then, what I know now. My babies would have been happy.” She totally gets it.
Her two children were fussy babies and cried a lot. They presented at the evaluation with zero brain and sacral cycles and narrow cranial/facial features. While they missed their window of opportunity of molding the cranium, we were still able to help release the restrictions in the palate, tongue and pelvis. They are doing very well.
The icing on the cake to this story is that the family is considering adopting a child.
Post from Rebecca Debus:
An amazing post. The emotional aspect is a very important key to what we hold in our bodies. Clearly, Krissy held the space for the emotions to come up. She created a safe space, educated and supported her client on the journey. Krissy clearly practiced the Power of Presence with brilliant results. What a blessing for the family. Thank you.
