My second treatment (by David)
After my first session with Amber I was excited to learn more about this great treatment. I wanted to find out as much as I could, I ordered the books that Amber had recommended to me. “Waking the Tiger” and “The Untethered Soul” Waking the Tiger was of special interest as it dealt specifically with healing trauma in the body and explored the reasons why we experience Trauma and what steps we could take to heal afterward. I really enjoyed reading it and it had some great exercises in it to help focus your mind and body into healing. I spoke to Amber via email and discussed the exercises and weather I was ready to do them or if I should wait until I had another session. Her advice was that I should be mindful that healing is a process and sometimes, it needs to take time and can’t be rushed but if I felt I could cope with the exercises that I should go ahead but with the awareness that I should keep grounded and mindful of myself. Amber would always reply to my emails and I felt more at ease after I had read her responses.
After such a great result from my first session, I was quite excited to see Amber again. This time I had decided to let go completely and see where the session took us.
When I arrived, I had the pleasure of being in Amber’s studio for the first time. It was lovely to be in what was a very relaxing environment and what felt like a very safe place. The session began, and I could feel Amber’s energy while she was tuning into mine. I closed my eyes and let myself completely relax. As I did I could see the colours in my vision turn from white to purple, blue to yellow and back to white. I could also feel a large ball of energy, white and hot in my spine between my shoulder blades. I had felt this for some years but at that moment, it was very intense.
As Amber worked I could feel this energy leaving my body in waves and it felt that it was leaving through my left side. I felt lots of emotions at the same time including an almost overwhelming urge to cry. These very emotional moments soon passed and I was back to being completely relaxed and watching the Kaleidoscope of colours before my eyes.
After the session was over I had to take a moment to ground myself and come back to the present. I could see that Amber had also felt the intenseness of the session and we both took a moment to ground ourselves. I knew then something powerful and healing had taken place. The ball of energy I had felt between my shoulder blades had been reduced to a very small area much less than it had before. I also felt great emotionally after the feeling of wanting to cry had passed I felt very happy. Spiritual balance is also very important to me and for the first time for a long time I felt physically, emotionally and spiritually balanced.
This feeling continued and I began to notice that my morning Tai Chi exercises were going better and my emotional responses to everyday hardships were getting more rational and easier. I was able to communicate my feelings better and my work life, which was very stressful at the time, became easier as I felt strong enough to talk to my bosses and express how I was feeling in a much better way.
I still felt that I had a long way to go but my journey of healing had taken a huge step forward.
