From QEI graduate Jenny Pederson, QEST Practitioner:
X.X. Teacher, mid 50 's
complaints: Constant neck and back pain,
carpal tunnel syndrome. Diagnosed with
fibromyalgia. She 'd had an active job for almost 30 years but had to move to an
administrative position because of pain. She refused to take drugs. She
was trying to get help holistically although the pain was becoming
unbearable. Prior treatments consisted
of massage, chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, and nutritional
changes (such as eliminating wheat and looking at body pH). Weekly massage therapy seemed to help the
most although she 'd have worse pain for days, then relief for a day or two,
only to have return of pain.
action: Work in order through the QEST
Handbook with some out of order procedures for quick relief for her neck pain
and carpal tunnel symptoms.
QEST: My client expressed relief after the first
session from the foundational QEST work. On the second visit as I progressed in order, I worked with old injuries
in her neck and advised that she might experience some dull achy pain as the
energy was drawn there for healing. She
reported significant relief after this visit although she was very sore for a
few days. We worked in order with some
added circulatory procedures for her wrist and hand that helped
significantly. She came regularly until
we finished going through 'the book” and we 're now focused on additional
work. She has significant relief in her
neck and shoulders and understands the importance of getting maintenance
work. Her wrist pain is significantly
better and she attributes her fibromyalgia relief to QEST.
ALSO: She invited me to do a presentation to her
professional group to share about QEST. Three people from that group have called for appointments.
