I have fibromyalgia and had been suffering for 3 years gradually getting worse over time, to the point that I was unable to go on long walks, watch my son play football, take my daughter shopping, and even go out dancing with friends. I had cut back on work and only travelled into the office one day a week. My life had changed significantly and I felt like a young person trapped in an old person’s body.
When my husband came across Mickel therapy I was pretty sceptical after already spending a fortune on the Perrin technique and many tests and supplements recommended by a nutritionist, all to no avail. I read as much as I could online and found very mixed reviews where people either seemed to love it or hate it but I decided that anything was worth a try so I contacted my local therapist (Angela Wilson) and arranged my first session. Everything seems a bit ‘fluffy’ at the start and I was still pretty sceptical but I threw myself into it and did all Angela asked of me each week.
I was really pleased as week by week things started to get better and better. Angela made the process very easy with her warm and friendly manner putting me at ease as you do have to talk about some fairly personal things. I am now able to do so many things that I couldn’t before, even exercising which I used to hate! I wouldn’t say that I am pain free by any stretch but when I feel it getting worse I know what I need to do to reduce it again and my health is really now in my hands to control. I continue to work on myself and hope that with time I too can be one of the cases who end up totally pain free but it does require a lot of effort in terms of looking out for number one which is very difficult when you have a family to care for and you need to break the habit of putting them first!
