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!
