Healing Touch and Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Quan Yin With Houseplants

I worked with a wonderful young woman who came to me in the middle of her recovery of an autoimmune disease called Guillain-Barré Syndrome, which is often referred to as (GBS).

GBS affects the peripheral nervous system with symptoms of weakness, tingling and paralysis that begins in the feet and hands and migrates toward the trunk. In extreme cases clients can experience total paralysis, yet most people recover with treatment from even the most severe cases of GBS.

When this client came she had plateaued in her healing process. The onset of GBS had started four months earlier, right after she’d had a flu. She still had severe headaches, pain in her body, nausea, fatigue and felt highly sensitive to her environment. She could not drive or go back to work, and she came to me because she felt she needed an energetic jump-start.

During the healing sessions that lasted about a year and a half, I helped her clear and balance her energy field. She always looked so much more relaxed after each session, the difference before and after was profound. She was eventually able to drive and go back to work part-time.

She told me the first few sessions were the most dramatic for her and helped her release the intense pain she had at the base of her skull and top of her head. She also said the main benefit of our sessions was the deep relaxation she experienced and that it helped her connect with her body in a more positive way.

I know our Healing Touch sessions were deeply supportive to my client. Was it just this particular client or is Healing Touch especially helpful to people with healing from GBS? I know my other clients with autoimmune diseases, such as arthritis and celiac disease, have benefited from Healing Touch treatments.

Note: Just so you know, I always email my clients and get their approval before I write about them. The clients I am describing in my posts are people I’ve worked with years ago. I don’t write about current clients. You can certainly come for a healing and not have a post written about you!
