Hello all you wonderful people at Back in Balance,
I want to share my healing story with you all.
I originally became a client of Cory Bernd, RMT 2 years ago while I was recovering from a car accident that severely affected the use of both my hands, wrists and arms. Cory was instrumental in my recovery at that time. During my post accident sessions with Cory he was also able to lessen many other chronic pain problems that have plagued me for over 20 years.
When additional trauma affected my hands, wrists and arms in March of 2012 and I found out that Cory was now at Back in Balance, I quickly made an appointment to see him. I also chose to see Doctor Norman as well.
The care I am receiving from all three practitioners is the best I have ever received from any health care professional. The combination of the three forms of therapy has greatly improved my quality of life both physically and psychologically. Chronic pain is a difficult burden to live with and Doctor Norman and Cory have contributed immensely to alleviating this burden.
Their dedication, professionalism and caring have given me hope that I can be healthier and maybe even, eventually, pain free. What prompted me to write to you is that my session with Cory earlier today (Wed. Aug. 22, 2012) resulted in some incredible outcomes. When I first came to Back in Balance in March 2012 I had lost a lot of the function of my left hand and some in my right hand as well. I could not grasp objects with left hand, I could not form a fist, I could not type and I could barely hold a book for any length of time.
The worst of the pain was felt in the muscles surrounding my left middle finger from the large knuckle and radiating throughout my left hand. As well as constant pain I experienced tingling and numbness for several hours each day and I was forced to severely limit all physical activity.
Over nearly six months of weekly and bi-weekly massage, and chiro sessions my hands gradually began to heal and I regained functionality little by little. My massage therapy session today with Cory was an amazing breakthrough. All his hard work over the last 6 months paid off with a major release in the problem areas in my left arm and hand.
I came out of this session able to flex my fingers, form a fist and hold items with hardly any pain at all. I am so enthralled that I have spent a lot of time today looking at my left hand while opening and closing my fingers because I was so amazed that I could and that there was barely any pain.
This breakthrough has also renewed my hope that other chronic pain problems will also see major improvements in the future.
I would like to thank you all for the role you play in my healing. Thank you to the fabulous and beautiful ladies at reception that make me feel like I’m just visiting friends for tea every time I walk in; your warm greetings and friendly chats have made me feel welcome from day one.
Thank you to Doctor Norman for sharing your skills and your smile; and for finding the perfect people to share your practice.
Thank you to Cory, your skills, energy and unique techniques have been healing me for over 2 years and I am so grateful to have met you; also, without you I would never have met all the wonderful people at Back in Balance.
Thank you all, keep up the great work.
