In January 2002, I had an outbreak of red eruptions that covered both of my palms. My dermatologist diagnosed me with psoriasis and prescribed an oral antibiotic and a topical cream. In my research on psoriasis, I learned that it is a stress induced disease.

I was under intense personal stress at the time, feeling a deep sense of sadness over September 11th, and feeling "out of tune" with myself. I believed that my psychological condition was having a negative affect on me physically--an issue not addressed in my experience with conventional medicine. I contacted Susie and began Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments to unblock my energies and help my body self-heal.

In two weeks, I had completely clear skin in my palms. My dermatologist was amazed at my progress, stating that he had expected my outbreak to take months to clear.

In my continued treatment, Susie taught me self-help to reduce stress, reduce headaches and take time for myself. I have not had a reoccurrence of psoriasis since!

I was diagnosed with a heart murmur when I was 17 years old. I'm now 34. I have been an athlete my entire life. My heart murmur never bothered me during physical exercise. However, last year when I began training for a marathon I experienced pain in my chest, tingling in my left little finger, and heart palpitations so severe I was forced to stop running. I talked to Susie about what was happening and she suggested I try Jin Shin Jyutsu. I was concerned I would not be able to run the marathon so I began weekly treatments.

Soon after I noticed my heart palpitations and the pain in my chest and little finger decreased significantly. I was able to complete my training and run the marathon without ever having to stop! Susie also taught me simple self-help applications to practice on myself to help strengthen my heart. I am running another marathon this year and I have yet to be slowed down because of my heart. I'm going to continue my treatments with Susie and I have no doubt that I'll be able to complete my next marathon without any complications.
