Broken Heart Cure

I recently had a conversation with my sister-in-law. It went something like this:

“Hey, are you still writing that newsletter for the massage lady?”

“Yes,” I said. “But she doesn’t do massage. It’s a different treatment called myofascial release.”

Cracking a joke she asked “Can she cure a broken heart?”

I laughed along with her but then gave it some actual consideration. “Yes, I believe she can,” I said.

“How?” she wondered. “Does she do something in or around the heart muscle?”

“No…not really.”

“How does she do it then?” she asked.

I kinda didn’t want to be bothered anymore and replied “I don’t know. It just works—trust me.”

Later on I thought about it and decided there must be a better explanation. To begin with: just what is a broken heart? The stories differ for everyone, but the thread that runs through them all is pain. Emotional pain and sometimes even physical pain.

When Ami works on the body and releases different areas, she is also releasing the stored memories in those muscle tissues. Oftentimes people will have an emotional reaction while receiving the treatment. And although this isn’t a scientific answer, this process is how each of their broken hearts gets repaired.

One client shared this experience with me recently after receiving multiple treatments over the course of two weeks. She went in to deal with physical pain and was assisted with healing that, but then received an unexpected bonus of freeing herself of past painful emotional memories.

She had long since divorced the ex-husband who physically abused her and usually never ran into him, except for the occasional major family event every five years. But after finishing up the two week treatments the Universe threw her a curve-ball. She would have to see the ex-husband at her grandson’s graduation the following week.

Unusual timing, she thought. (My guess is Ami is smiling right now and thinking it wasn’t unusual at all!)

When she saw him again she said she felt so surprised. None of the usual anger and disgust was there. He was just another person. It ended up being a relaxing and enjoyable family reunion.

I think this story alone proves myofascial release can cure a broken heart. Once the pain is gone from the body’s memory the mind is free and finally at peace. What a wonderful place to be!
