"In June, 2015 after a horse fall, I was told by an orthopedic physician, “I do 5-6 surgeries a week on necks that look better than this.” For forty years, I have had pinched and compressed nerves in my neck with subsequent major arthritic changes. Unfortunately, this led to chronic pain with nerve radiation and pain down both hands. My pain level varied from 1 – 6, depending on the weather and my activities.
I first learned about Crystal Myofascial Release Treatment from research results indicating significant decreases in pain level in patients with chronic pain. With a physician order for occupational therapy, I started Crystal Therapy & Myofascial Release under Hima Dalal, Occupational therapist, MFR, CST, Reiki, Grand Master. I also received heat therapy, cervical mechanical traction, and was taught exercises to increase neck movement.
Today, after 19 treatments, I have significant improvements! Specifically, my neck ranges of motion have significantly increased in three months on both sides. I have decreased rounding of my shoulders, my headaches have been eliminated, my neck feels “free,” instead of tight and constricted, and I can work at the computer for longer periods of time. I have been able to return to my Pilates exercise, pain free. My level of pain is now zero. Crystal Myofascial Release Treatment always made me feel relaxed, and as a nurse researcher, I strongly recommend it to others with chronic pain issues."
