November Case Study – Depression & Anxiety
One of the most common problems I see in the clinic would be people suffering from depression and/or anxiety. Over the last 8 months I have been working with a lady in her 30’s who was taking anti-depressants and felt anxious about most things in her life including being a good Mom, being a good wife, being good at her job and juggling everything. She was not happy to be taking her medication so came off them without her doctor’s permission. One morning, she felt so bad she took too many of the anti-depressants and ended up on the bathroom floor, throwing up. Her toddler was in a high chair in the kitchen and she became very scared for both herself and her child. She didn’t want to go back to her doctor so looked at other options, found my details and called for an appointment. To cut a long story short, we have been working together using Reiki and Reflexology to balance both her psychological and physical well-being. We initially did the standard 4 weekly treatments and then as she improved we moved to treatments every 3 weeks but constantly monitoring her progress. If you could see this beautiful woman today I don’t think she would believe her story let alone that you would. She resigned from her job and is setting up her own business, running a 10k and trying for her second child. She is no longer dependent on medication, this time under her doctor’s supervision, but managing her symptoms naturally with Reiki and Reflexology treatments. I am so proud of this lady for taking her health and well-being into her own hands and following her heart.
Note: I believe we are all in control of our well-being however, I must stress you should not come off prescripted medication without your doctor’s supervision.
November Top Tip
This is a gorgeous blend not only for anxiety but also great for your skin. Mix 8 drops of Frankincense, 8 drops of rose and 4 drops of Ylang Ylang.
- For adults, use 1 drop of the blend with your moisturiser daily.
- You can also add 80-10 drops of the blend to 5mls of milk and add to a bath. Soak for 20 minutes.
- This blend is also suitable for children over 3 years of age in the bath but only add 4-5 drops of the blend to the milk. For younger children, put 1-2 drops on a damp facecloth and leave on a radiator in their bedroom, but away from the cot.
