Brain Gym and Touch For Health Successes
Practitoner: Hélène Young
I had a phone call from a client, he said, “My partner is depressed – what is available?” I rattled off Mental Health Services, support groups etc or that she could see me. “Okay,” he said. So I went to visit. She was feeling very depressed, with low energy, and was not particularly pleased to see me.
While having a chat, I commented that with all the ‘stuff’ happening in her life, she had every reason to feel depressed. I asked if she would like to learn three quick ‘first aid’ techniques. She was willing, so we did P.A.C.E. – making sure her tongue was on the roof of her mouth while we did Brain Buttons. We talked about the goal “to be calm, clear and motivated” and did a Whole Brain Balance:-
Step one: notice while thinking/saying your goal.
Step two: remember and step into a space where you have achieved a similar positive response and notice how you feel.
Step three: think of another space containing the best thing that has ever happened in your life.
Next we did Calf Pump, Grounder, Energy Yawn, Thinking Caps and Hook-ups with colour and ESR. Back to step 3, 2, 1 and voila the sun shone again.
I had a text message later saying “thanks, to hear my wife’s laughter is like all my favourite songs rolled into one”.
Three weeks later, she is still doing her movements and feeling great.
I was working with a client who wanted to cope better with movement. We did some Brain Gym and then some TFH muscles in her lower back and neck, a few reactors, strengthened her Spleen energy and backed off Triple Warmer. Basically we were working on a moving/confidence/ pain problem.
She left feeling more confident and happier about moving.
A few days later, she rang and asked, “Did you do something for my pain the other day?” I replied, “mmm – well yes I popped in some releasing and relaxing, why?” She said, “Well I have been walking well and have been relatively pain free and TFH is the only thing I have done differently.”
Ain’t that great!
