I am a service-connected Disabled American Veteran, having participated in operations, over 3 decades, as a US Navy SEAL, and other governmental agencies. I have had multiple spinal surgeries, including spinal fusion. I have chronic degenerative arthritis. I live each day of my life in pain.
I have tried every type of therapy available. Again, pain is overriding factor of my daily life.
I received one session of warm-water myo-facial release from Nan. I left the session with increased range of motion and an ability to walk without pain. The next 24 hours were remarkable, in that I was able to play golf and be "normally social," [sitting over 2 hours and driving over 2 hours], things most people take for granted, that I am normally unable to do after any physical activity. Pain was at a mere minimum.
My arthritis still prevented me from a normal gait, immediately after rising from a chair; but still, I "felt" better.
I would say my body's ability to function better than I normally do and in less pain, lasted about 1 week. Remember, I've been fused for nearly 2 decades and have endured recurring orthopedic trauma.
I was only able to attend 1 therapy session, due to geographical commitments. My mind wonders what kind of results a full session/weeks of therapy and treatment would produce?
I recommend Nan's deep strength and penetrating release-type therapy for anyone in pain and living with sub normal range of motion, or decreased mobility. I will return to see her soon for full treatment. I will report on the results.
