A Long-Time Pain Sufferer Expresses Gratitude
Have you ever wished you could
control or decrease your pain without running to the medicine cabinet?
I have had that experience through Yonah Offner's coaching and teaching
skills relating to power breathing and relaxation. I actually can
reduce or eliminate the pain I have suffered with for years in my
upper back, neck and shoulders. I would never have believed that
it was possible. Before working with Yonah, I instantly opted for
the Ibuprofen bottle. Still more incredible are the superior results
of his Reflexology treatments and Yoga Therapy; and it's also a
good way to loose weight.
Several weeks ago, I went to my Primary Care Physician to learn
the results of my blood work and have some prescriptions renewed.
I was unprepared for what I heard. My blood pressure was down to
115/68 in an upright position; my cholesterol was down to 156 from
245 with HDL and LDL in correct proportion; my triglycerides were
normal after being extremely elevated; and the scale showed thirty-five
less pounds than the last time I was weighed! My beaming smile was
a dead give-a-away to my reaction to this exciting news. My doctor
was pleased also and when I began explaining about my life style
change and some of the things I was doing to actively improve my
health, she began to roll her eyes upward. I just stopped talking,
smiled and thanked her. When I began driving home, I played a beautiful
melody my CD player and tears began to stream down my face. I started
to reflect on even more quality improvements in my life.
You see, the results the doctor had given to me were only half the
story of my efforts to change. I realized that, for the first time
in thirty-six years, I was pain free and wow - that felt fantastic!
I was so much more flexible than before. My digestive and elimination
systems were on track, perhaps for the first time in my life and
that is no small thing! I have been able to reduce the number and
dosage of the medications I had been taking for years. My pant size
was down by two and most of my clothes were rather loose fitting.
The more things I thought of, the more the tears flowed. I realized
that I had been successful far beyond my timid hopes. The difference
was the life style change as opposed to the many diets I had failed
with in my past. I just wanted to be healthier, more flexible, look
better and feel my best. I called to share my accomplishments with
my supportive and devoted husband, who quickly pointed out that
my decision to begin consulting with Yonah Offner was the foundation
of real change for me.
It seems as if I should describe my life in terms of "before Yonah"
and now - "after Yonah", though he will remain part of my efforts
toward positive living indefinitely. Even though there have been
many other influences during my time on this earth, no one has ever
impacted my life as significantly as Yonah. Yes, I did lots of work
too, but who would have a clue about WHAT work without Yonah's coaching
and therapeutic skills? I will take credit for beginning the programs
of Reflexology and Yoga Therapy and I know I had something to do
with the outcome too. However, I was totally unprepared for the
depth of Yonah's understanding and proficiency as a therapist. As
inadequate as words can be at times, I will attempt to explain.
Focusing on bringing my mind, body and spirit into balance, Yonah
Offner has opened up a whole new world for me, a world based on
promoting health and longevity instead of treating symptoms and
dwelling on illness. Through his guidance, I am gradually bringing
stability to my life with an eye toward holistic and mindful ways
to assure wellness. Though my understanding of the relationship
of the mind, body and spirit is only in its infancy, I intend to
continue my journey. My mind is more lively now and full of possibilities!
As he always has, Yonah will be there for me to support my triumphs
and get past the inadequacies. His strength and expertise will continue
as reinforcements along my voyage toward continued wellness, peace
of mind, spiritual growth and personal joy.
