I broke my ankle some years ago. At the time the x-rays showed that it had fully knitted and repaired but despite this I had a sense of numbness all around the area where the actual break had been. I received some pain killers from my medical practitioner and was encouraged to keep it exercised. I missed my daily walks and exercise and also my weekly round of golf. My ankle became more painful and started to swell if I was standing for any length of time.
Despite further tests and investigations from medical personnel there seemed to be no resolution to my problem. Some of them said I possibly had arthritis in the ankle but this was little consolation to me. My friends stopped ringing me for a game of golf as they were fed up with me constantly complaining and telling them what I couldn’t do.
My family suggested that I contact my doctor for some more medication as I was becoming depressed because I was so limited in doing the things I loved and enjoyed doing and at this stage my hip was also becoming painful.
I took medication for my depression
I did take the prescribed medication and it did help with my depression but long term I really wanted to sort out my ankle and get back to living my life. I noticed when I felt down and hopeless I was drinking copious amounts of tea and coffee to cheer myself up I felt this was making it worse even though I had limited my exercise.
One day when I was at the hairdresser I saw a magazine with an article about sound healing and the principle behind it. I took down the number of the sound healing therapist and booked in for therapy.
The therapy room was full of sound healing instruments
When I attended my first session it all seemed a bit bizarre. There were all types of gongs and Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks in the sound therapy room.
The therapist explained precisely what he intended to do. He explained how sound healing works and also explained about the fascia which I had never heard about before, and how an injury in one part of the body could also be affecting other areas of the body. He also advised me to cut down on my tea and coffee intake.
The swelling went down in my ankle
I attended for two more sessions of sound healing therapy before I noticed any major changes. I noticed that the swelling on my ankle was less and I had more mobility without pain. I attended for three more therapy sessions after which I was very pleased to be back playing golf again and back to my daily walks and exercise.
