Aileen M. McKenna, Certified Quantum-Touch Therapy Practitioner/Instructor, Empathic Life Coach
Working with clients presenting with head and neck injuries was not an intentional decision for me. In fact, I had often worked with those who were dealing with neck pain from whiplash and stress in their work places, but head injuries and the accompanying spinal conditions, caused me much stress as I fully understand what hinges upon these injuries being resolved. The first time, I really had no idea what to expect when I realized that the person on whose head I had placed my hands, had been involved in a car accident some years previously, and continued to have what she called migraine headaches. I was in front of a large group of people interested in taking the Quantum-Touch class, and as I placed my hands upon her head, and felt the boney structure that was clearly not where I would have expected to feel a bone, I moved my hands and asked the person volunteering for the demo to sit down. I then placed my hands upon her head in a different placement, and she asked me to stop as she was beginning to feel nauseous. Anyone who has worked with those who have suffered a concussion, will recognize that this is a common symptom following that injury. From training in somato release from head injuries I knew that it was common for the clients’ body to return to that place of the injury as they are placed in a position where that injury can be healed. However, I would have preferred to have been prepared to deal with it, however, as it happened, the results were totally positive and the migraines did not recur, and all other symptoms from that earlier accident were resolved.
Since that moment I have worked with many clients presenting with the long lasting symptoms that follow head injuries. I’ve worked with them doing distant healing for a client who had fallen on the ice, and hit her head on a cement step. Because she lived some distance from me, and was unable to drive, I worked with her daily for some weeks doing distant healing, and she shared the same phenomena of having all the initial pain and nausea as I first worked with her. That seems to be a common occurrence as the body prepares to heal from the inside out. More recently, I’ve worked with several clients with head and spinal injuries that were interfering with their ability to fully live their lives. Following many months of other treatments, these clients have discovered Aileen’s Oasis, and at the end of that very first session, the results seem to be more than they could have expected. Two or three sessions later, they marvel at how well they feel, how strong their bodies have become, and how all aspects of their beings seem to have improved.
Something that we seldom speak about with Quantum-Touch therapy is that it works at all levels and throughout the entire body when practitioners are doing their work. When I work upon the spine of my client, healing is taking place in the organs, in the limbs, and many clients are aware of this as they feel tingling down their legs, and perhaps even feel pain in different parts of their bodies. Similarly, as I work upon their heads, they feel much energy movement in their heads, but may also feel pain or other sensations in other parts of their bodies. We work as the witness, holding the space for the healing to take place, within a system knowing that the energy goes where it is needed. If I am working in an area that is not the main part of the body where the injury has occurred, or where the main damage needing healing, I know and trust that the healing is taking place exactly where it needs to be. All is perfect, and as it should be where Quantum-Touch therapy is concerned.
