I was unfamiliar with the techniques and a little uncomfortable about it at the start, but Allison explained everything, took things slow, and made me feel a lot more at ease with everything. Having an old dog learn some new tricks takes time, but I have been able to incorporate the breathing and stretching exercises into my daily routine. I sleep much better now (still not a solid eight hours, but I blame that more on the wonderful menopausal hot flashes that now follow me everywhere), I don’t have the urgency issues I used to have with urination, and (call me crazy, others have) it seems to me that since I’ve been far more diligent about the breathing techniques my now twenty-two year old “baby bump” seems to have shrunk. My primary care physician balked at the treatment, saying it couldn’t be what was making a difference. So I will end with this, even if another doctor doesn’t give this form of therapy the respect it’s due, try it anyway. It made a huge difference for me.
