There Is A Way to Move Past Your Pain It is Right Here in Ottawa!

November 9, 2017 | By More

I have an amazing health journey I wish to share with my friends, family and the people of Ottawa and beyond.   

Five years ago I had a severe back injury, which left me somewhat immobile and in extreme and constant pain for about five years.  I was treated with many different modalities, but nothing would keep the pain and discomfort at bay.  I could no longer do the work I loved as a Registered Massage Therapist.  My heart was sinking as I became less mobile and my pain levels were escalating, arthritis was setting in, and my weight was increasing due to the lack of movement.  My vision of life had been diminished to thinking I was headed for a lifetime of pain, discomfort and disability.  I had dispelled any ideas of attending a gym, fitness program or yoga class for fear that my condition would worsen.

Then I was coaxed into trying a class of Korean Style Yoga at the Body and Brain Healing Centre here in Ottawa.  The Centre is the only one of its kind in Ottawa, teaching this style of practice. I was at the end of my rope and thought to myself, why not try, what do I have to lose?  I was terrified I would be pushed into doing movements that would cause further pain or re-injury.  With the gentle guidance of Master Kuam and his efficient staff, I was instructed to work within my physical limitations.  Within three weeks, I already noticed changes in my flexibility, pain levels and attitude towards life.  With these remarkable results, I continued to attend classes every day, seven days a week for over a year.  That was one and a half years ago, and today I can touch my toes, bend side to side, sit cross-legged on the floor, do push ups, all with a great feeling of joy in my heart.  These are all things I never imagined I would be able to do again.  The added bonus to this was losing 32 pounds and 8 inches off my waist without changing my diet.  I still have a back condition, but it no longer controls my life.

The Body & Brain Healing Centre teaches you how to access your own innate healing ability, physically, mentally and spiritually.  This is a journey that leads one to a life of health, happiness and peace, which is something every person on the planet deserves.

My heartfelt gratitude goes to Master Kuam, all the staff and supportive members at the Body & Brain Healing Centre, for I truly have my life back again.
