I don’t think I have mentioned this but Chuck and I are gearing up to move to Utah. It seems like a pretty understandable transition I mean we are Mormon and Utah is out “Mecca.” (kidding) I read that Utah was our Mecca on an old postcard of the Salt Lake Temple, I found in an antique shop and it made me bust out laughing.
We are headed for Sunny Alpine to live close by Chuck’s sister and her husband. They have a little girl close to Fiona’s age and I have a feeling she is really going to like having a cousin close by. Chuck is going to learn how to do a type of Emotional Release Therapy that will be a part of his counseling practice in the future. It uses age regression meaning that sometimes (not always) during a session you might “go back” to an earlier age to address issues from your past. I have been the beneficiary of this treatment on a few occasions and have found it to be really healing and beneficial.
I am excited for him to be learning about something he is really interested in and working with our brother in law who we consider to be quite the guru of health and healing. It will be a great blessing to our family. I mean who doesn’t want to learn to release stress and negative emotions. I myself tend to be a bottler of such and sometimes I burst… never pretty.
There have been quite a few people we know who have mixed feelings about this decision and career move. I don’t know what it is about “Alternative” therapies that people have a problem with. Perhaps that is because I grew up with a mother who loved therapy, self help books, herbs and many other non-mainstream forms of medicine.
If I have learned ONE thing from my almost 10 years studying health and Nutrition in school it would be that….
There is NO one size fits all when it comes to nutrition advice. People are so unique you have to tailor meet your advice to fit their life.
So… how is it hard to imagine that when treating metal health different types of therapy might benefit different people.
Anyways, I am not going to turn this post into a defense of alternative medicine…. but just wanted to say I fully support my husbands choice and am glad he is following his heart and not being swayed by other people’s opinions.
