Another brief update, not because I have any pressing business to attend to, but because I'm not feeling so hot.
The therapy is going great. But it's definitely not all warm and fuzzy feeling all the time. Actually, maybe less than 5% of the time does it actually feel GOOD. But I am reminded by the therapists that the intense pressure and even pain indicates to them where spots need to be worked on. For example, they worked today on a lot of diaphragm restriction that I (apparently) have, but not directly on the diaphragm. They found a connecting line down on the liver, near the gall bladder, and it was all honkey-dorey until I tried to take a deep breath and thought I was being stabbed through the liver. The therapist was happy (and she was the only one), because this meant that she was on the "right" spot. She told me to continue breathing through it as much as possible.
Of course, at any time that I find the pressure to be too intense to handle, I tell them. They said it won't help me to endure it just for the sake of doing what I think is best, because then my tissue will actually work against them by tensing up. DH says I do this all the time - just endure pain and not speak up about it, so I've been working on that this week ;)
Another particularly tight area on my body are my sides, all the way from my shoulders to my lower pelvis. When they worked on those it felt like someone had given me a very weak local anaesthetic and was cutting me open with scissors from hip to ribcage. Lovely :)
The internal work is mostly geared towards softening my cervix, which was very tight/adhesed to begin with. After each internal session, the therapist remarks that she feels a lot of progress. Well, that's because my cervix is an overachiever, thankyouverymuch. You go, girl.
I have been experiencing a few constant dull headaches after treatment, which they also said is common due to the increased flow of blood to the brain.
Other than that, not much to report.
Here's a picture I sent Sew after yesterday's treatment:
Looks like Shelby's been running nails up her belly.
