I have been suffering from body pain for many years. I would wake up to a terrible pain from my hips down to my feet. The pain can come any time, day or night.
Pain killers had helped me fight off the pain for many years. But, the pain would come back after a few weeks of painless bliss. Every time, it is more intense than before. Lately, I decided to find a way to end the pain once and for all.
Finding A Cure
I have found temporary comfort in getting a massage regularly. I even bought almost all kinds of electric massage devices. As always, the relief was always short-lived.
Then I heard about remedial massage in Brunswick area from a friend whose son had undergone therapy and has been experiencing positive results. I am planning to take a vacation for a month. Why not spend it in Brunswick and have fun and seek treatment at the same time?
I have tried undergoing massage therapy with high hopes of getting rid of the pain. However, my work did not allow regular sessions. Now that I am on a holiday, I can focus on improving my health along with taking a break from my busy schedule.
Arriving at Brunswick
After arriving at the nearest airport to Brunswick, I rented a car to drive to my friend’s place. We are both happy to see each other. After greeting one another, my friend brought me to her son to show me his fast progress.
She is positive that I can find help there. The next day, she drove me to the clinic where I was asked to complete a form. After I was done and submitted it, we were told to wait.
Apparently, the form was forwarded to one of the therapists. After about 10 minutes, I was called into what appeared to be a small office. The therapist asked me if I am willing to undergo remedial therapy.
The treatment could last a month or longer. I told him I would stay with my friend until the treatment has been completed.
I was thoroughly examined and I answered numerous questions regarding the pain I felt, what I thought caused it, and pain history. I was told answering all the questions can help them find out what was wrong with me and to design a personalized treatment program.
A Ray of Hope
When I returned to the clinic for my first appointment, my therapist told me that my condition is still at its early stage. He started explaining to me the therapy that I would undertake, the schedule, and what to expect from the treatment.
I was told if all goes well, I would be having sessions for a month and I can have follow -up sessions and checkups in any clinic near my place that offers remedial therapy.
I was glad to be able to focus on the therapy sessions without worrying about work and other problems. My friend drove me to my sessions and we did some sightseeing if we still had time.
At first, I still spent sleepless nights as the throbbing on my hips down my legs prevented me from falling asleep. But, after my fifth session, I slept longer as the pain seemed to get less intense and last shorter.
I told my friend about this as well as my therapist and they were happy about this development.
My Journey to Wellness
Time flew fast and I only have two weeks left in Brunswick. The last two weeks were memorable to me. I experienced uninterrupted sleep for the first time without taking any painkiller.
I look forward to my therapy sessions knowing that good news always awaits me. Three days before my trip back home, I celebrated my getting well with my therapist and my best friend. I could not believe that I am now free from the pain.
My therapist gave me the name of his colleague near my place so that I can see him when the need arose. Thankfully, the pain is now gone.
With remedial massage, I experienced a great change in the quality of my life. Now, I can sleep soundly the whole night. I wake up feeling good, ready to go to work and spend quality time with my friends and family.
