I was involved in a head-on auto collision at a high rate of speed a little over two years ago. I am grateful to be alive, but I have spent countless hours in physical therapy, have seen numerous physicians including neurosurgeons, neurologists, pain psychologists, pain management, and even a psychiatrist to deal with nightmares and post traumatic stress from the accident. After numerous steroid injections, trigger point injections, and rhizotomies in my cervical and lumbar spine, my pain management doctor recommended having myofascial release therapy with Matt in conjunction with the rhizotomy to help with the healing process. I wasn’t sure what to expect or how it was different from other massage therapy and physical therapy I had received but was willing to try anything, since my pain level was still very high nearly two years after the accident and my quality of life was not good. After the very first session, I noticed a period of being somewhat “pain free”. It lasted less than an hour, but it gave me hope. Each session allowed for greater lengths of time without severe pain and I started feeling more like my old self again. At one point, I experienced what is referred to as an “unwinding” which was very strange but Matt’s reassurance and calm instructions and touch, allowed my body to release some deep layers of fascia and muscle tension that had been gripping my nerve endings since the accident. After this occurance I experienced a dramatic turn, not only in my physical healing but emotional and spiritual healing as well. Now I am free from all medications and with the techniques taught by Matt and some ongoing maintenance, I am able to regain a vast majority of what I lost. Now when I visit Matt, I simply relax and allow the healing to happen. My only regret is that I wish I had found Matt and Healing Sea sooner. What a blessing. I have recommended him to others, and they, too, have found healing in his techniques.
