A Healing Experience for Mother and Son

A story from a mother and her healing experiences for her and her son...

My Son

"My first experience with Pam was with my (then) 5-year-old son, who had been experiencing night terrors and stomach disorders. I had sought treatment from our pediatrician, and was sent to various “experts” to find the root of the problem. Most of the recommendations for treating my son were invasive, and also drug-based, and also simply saying that he was ok, and would grow out of it. However, no one offered relief for him and his symptoms, which were occurring frequently and were obviously having an affect on his overall well-being.

I went to Pam not knowing much about Chinese medicine nor Jin Shin Jyutsu. She had been recommended by a friend, and I was desperate for a solution. The first time she treated my son, there was an obvious effect on him right there in the office. And his symptoms went down immediately. His vomiting stopped almost immediately.

It was a powerful treatment that made sense to me—it was very gentle for my son (no needles were used,) it was non-invasive, and it worked. Pam is great with kids! A lot of energy was stirred up for him during the treatments, and she had no problem working with that, even enjoying it I think!"


"I went to see Pam to be treated for an old shoulder injury, that was inflamed and painful. Pam treated me with a combination of acupunture and Jin Shin Jyutsu. After a few visits, it became clear that the shoulder was not the central issue anymore, and we continued with the treatments, on and off, for about one-and-a-half years. I feel like what was being treated was a deeper level of the human body and mind, that was allowing me to feel a greater sense of well-being both physically and mentally. The medicine that Pam practices is very helpful, very immediate, and extremely powerful. I would highly recommend her."
