Today I felt a need to reach out and tell you a story. I had a patient with chronic shoulder pain. Immediately after examination, I knew that the primary cause for her pain was not shoulder calcification but excessive contraction of muscles and connective tissues that has been active for many years. The contraction (sensory-motor-amnesia) was so strong that her body did not even respond to therapy – nor to gentle techniques nor to stronger ones. After a few sessions we stopped and I explained to her that I am not able to help her with my knowledge and I directed you toward your programs.
After a while, this lady contacted me again and booked a session. After regularly carrying out the exercises for 3 to 4 months the tension in her muscles and connective tissues was completely changed! Her body immediately responded to therapy but only to gentle techniques not to strong ones. She is living proof that these exercises create tangible changes and not only subjectively but objectively as well – in the sense of less physical pain. I had the opportunity to sense her body before and after AEQ programs. To caricature – it was like her body (her subconscious) finally allowed me to perform therapy on her. It makes me happy that you have programs like these so that I can direct my patients there when I evaluate that they are mature enough to participate in them.
