From Christine J., RMT, BSc.(Kin), Langley, BC
My first direct experience with homeopathy was in 2015. One of my massage clients at the time was a homeopath & we got to chatting about some of the things she has found & what her methodology & practice was. In this first case it was to treat 1 of my dogs who had been going through some minor health issues at the time. Right away I thought it was a pretty cool modality, & so effective with animals & people. Then in 2016 I got necrotizing pneumonia and was sick for months. I had been on numerous rounds of IV antibiotics but nothing was getting rid of the infection completely. I went to my friend to see if she could help someway in the healing process. She formulated a remedy and within a few weeks I had a totally clean chest X-Ray. I knew at that time I was very interested in homeopathy, but at that point in my life I was not able to pursue it.
As the years have gone by and the more people's physical and emotional bodies I have treated, my personal belief in health has shifted somewhat. Over the years I have come to experience & truly believe that our bodies are amazing machines & more complex than we can imagine. I also believe that our bodies have the innate ability to heal itself, but at times we just need to get out of the way or give it a little help to facilitate things. As I was discovering this more in my practice I started to explore courses in Visceral Manipulation and the Craniosacral systems, which both further fed into my beliefs.
Even though I love my current work and have built an amazing practice, I have started feeling as though there is something missing. I have been feeling this way for over a year, so have been taking more advanced courses to see if that will quench my thirst for the missing piece. A few weeks ago I was chatting with another client & she had mentioned homeopathy. I have to admit, as soon as she said it, it was as though a lightbulb went off. I started researching the profession & never once have doubted that this is the direction of my next career. I think there is such a compliment to my practice & the relationships I have been building. I really believe that homeopathy is my “missing piece”.
