For several years I had been battling my illness of ME, Fibromyalgia and Functional Neurological Disorder. These conditions have left me with an endless list issues from migraines, depression, muscle weakness, chronic fatigue and constant pain, this is to only name a few. As there is minimal research into these conditions, the treatment is painkillers and 'to be nice to yourself'. I have had to stop working so many times due to my illness, i have been on all the different tablets and regimes but nothing really helped.
Then I was introduced to KORE and its changed my life! I can now do things i couldn't before, i can do more with my day and still get up the next morning. As before, one busy day would effect me and wipe out for the next few days. I'm still in treatment with KORE but with each treatment i improve and always cant wait for my next treatment.
Starting up GLOW, is my way of helping people in the way that i was helped and the way it changed by life for the better.
Around 9 years ago when I was 17, I started a very long 2 years of being in and out of the doctors every couple of weeks. Diagnosed with IBS but with an unknown reason as to why? Keeping food diaries and cutting out food trials with no luck, the doctors finally concluded my IBS was due to Stress. I was put on IBS medication Dicyclomine hydrochloride and told that was all they can do. So that was it, I had to live with the digestive issues, crippling abdominal pain, vomiting from the pain.
Then 4 years ago following a partial shoulder dislocation, I was sent to a physio and told I had rotatory cuff irration and to rest my shoulder and to avoid the use my right arm for 12 weeks and hopefully full movement would return. Feeling broken and nothing to lose I went for KORE treatment as no one else would help.
Following a few treatments and occasional maintance treatment. My 'IBS' no longer controls my life, its practically none existant so it was a goodbye to my medication. My shoulder is fully mobile again and has no pain.
From my experiences, it is my aim to help people the way in which KORE therapy help me. It has driven me to help everyone restore themselves back to their best selves, as everyone is entitled to help and to improve their quality of life and that is my mission! I have also studied to find alternative/natural therapies to improve overall health, like Aromatherapy and Naturotherapy.
Ruby is our Therapy Dog!
She is a Cockerdor, part cocker spaniel and part Labrador.
She loves meeting new people and getting hugs and kisses.
We are very proud of her development and progression in the Good Citizens Scheme.
She may still be training but she has already started to help people with anxiety and stress. She is trained to go and sit next to someone to allow them to stroke her and then also trained if told to hold her head next to someone else's head for comfort and reassurance.
Although not always in the shop, she never fails to brighten up our day!
