The Therapist

This was years ago when I was seeing a Rebirthing Therapist for panic, muscle cramps — childhood PTSD, in other words. One session she says, let’s try something else and brought out a medicine drum. Since she was studying to be a shaman, I thought ‘okay.’

Within a few seconds of the heartbeat rhythm most all the muscles were relaxed. It took 20 minutes for the neck muscles to finally come around. The shocking thing was, that I didn’t have to take my meds for the next three days.
