I am a strong advocate of Mickel Therapy…

I STARTED MICKEL THERAPY WITH LOCAL THERAPIST, FIONA WATSON, FROM JULY UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2013 .

I  HAD BEEN SUFFERING FROM HIGH ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS FOR SEVERAL YEARS. DURING THAT TIME, I HAD BEEN PRESCRIBED  ANTI DEPRESSION MEDICATION BY MY GP AND REFERRED TO THREE DIFFERENT  COUNSELLORS FOR CBT. AS MUCH AS THIS WAS HELPFUL FOR THE SHORT TERM, I WAS STILL ON MEDICATION,EXPERIENCING RECURRING EPISODES OF THE SAME SYMPTOMS. LATER, I DEVELOPED THYROID PROBLEMS, WHICH SURFACED AFTER THE SUDDEN DEATH OF MY MOTHER LAST YEAR, ALSO REQUIRING MEDICATION.

I’ve got a life again, a life that seemed so far out of reach during the countless hours I spent just staring at the wall.

I heard about Mickel therapy on three separate occasions before I decided to get in touch with a Mickel therapist.  I can now safely say it was the best move I ever made. Mickel therapy is the only thing that has worked for me. Having been first a nurse and then a midwife in the NHS I’ll admit I was a bit sceptical about any alternative treatment options for CFS/ME outside of the organisation.  I’ve always based my own practice on current research so the fact that Mickel therapy is not an approved treatment used by the NHS sat uncomfortably.  However, I was so desperate to get better and out of all the ‘alternative’ therapies Mickel therapy appeared to me to be the most genuine and to make the most sense.

Everyday was an effort

I had reached the stage in December 2012 of lying in my recliner chair basically unable to do anything. I believe that people are drawn to or forced to do things in life. I am not sure which path I took to Mickel Therapy. I was prompted to try it, after having tried umpteen things to help me without success. It was an article in “The Inverness Courier” that motivated me to take action. I took the attitude to believe, that Mickel Therapy, if not curing me of my I.B.S. would help to relieve some of the symptoms, I was experiencing.

Mickel Therapy has given me my life back!

Having suffered from CFS (M.E) for over 7 years, following a bout of Glandular Fever in 2006, I found myself at a loss as to what to try next to try and find a solution to my condition. My symptoms had got progressively worse over the years to the extent where I was forced to completely refrain from work. On some days I didn’t even have the energy to get out of bed, a stark contrast to the young man I once was, completing the Great North Run in 2005 and leading an energetic, fruitful life. I sought support from the NHS, along with various other alternative treatments, in an attempt to take control of my life again but nothing I tried showed any longstanding improvement in my symptoms. Then, early in 2013, I was advised by my Occupational Therapist of a treatment known as ‘Mickel Therapy’ which had proved to be effective for some of her other patients suffering from the condition. Having tried various other so called ‘fixes’ I was of course dubious about paying for another course of treatment. I didn’t, however, have any other places to turn to and so, I decided to give it a try.

I would highly recommend Mickel Therapy to anyone suffering from ME/CFS/Fibromyalgia

If someone had told me this time last year, how much Mickel Therapy would change my life, I wouldn’t have believed them.

I was finally diagnosed with ME about 10 years ago after struggling to lead a “normal” life for years. I’d tried other alternative therapies in an attempt to manage my condition and, although they were good at the time, they had no lasting effect.

My Journey with Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome

I became unwell in April 2010 following a virus, which at the time was just another virus, I had been picking up bugs and my body was trying to fight them for about a year before, but just as soon as one virus left my body another would appear, my body became weaker and eventually I became so ill I couldn’t even lift my head off my pillow.

I am so very thankful to have life back to this amount of fullness and wellness.

In February 2012 I met a friend for coffee in town. Sounds very normal, but for her and I this was a massive milestone. I hadn’t seen her for 6 years. She had previously attended the same church as myself. I couldn’t say we were friends particularly back then but I knew who she was, and then she got M.E., and disappeared. Two years later I was diagnosed with the same condition and she kindly wrote to me and we kept in touch through email after that.

The therapy has been life changing

The therapy has been life changing, I feel like a normal 20 year old and I am now looking forward to the future rather than dreading it.

In August 2010 I contracted glandular fever which was the start to two mentally and physically challenging years. I was due to start University in September 2010 but had to postpone for three weeks as I was still too ill to do basic tasks by myself. When I finally went to University I was by no means better, and for my first semester my life literally consisted of eating, sleeping and going to lectures.
