After having spent five wonderful days at the Golden Door Spa Resort, where I believe some healing took place, I went for my half-yearly blood tests on Thursday, 26/04/18.
That same evening at 7 pm my doctor called (which I always find a bit alarming at that hour – and on the same day as the blood test was done) and sounded a bit surprised: “Barbara, your blood test looks good. Everything seems to be in the normal range. Even your CRP reading (inflammation markers, that should be between 0 and 5, but were at 12, when I was diagnosed and at 7.8 at last October’s reading) are within the norm with a 4.6 mg/L. The Lymphocytes had come down to almost normal.”
So although my belly is still there, its size is reduced to almost hide-able and I am really pleased with the results.
At the Golden Door, I had opted to do spiritual healing practices instead of massages. I had opted for a ‘Soul Awakening’, which is a bit like a mix between a spiritual healing, a medical intuitive intervention and a tarot card reading. I came away with an affirmation that I have to repeat daily, my personal note (looks like a musical note from another planet) and the conviction that the word ‘freedom’ has hit a nerve.
A Watsu water healing has cemented that experience with its womb-like re-birthing quality, where I had a deep insight into my childhood and even a pre-birth experience.
What is Watsu?
