Meet Sandra, The Pain Release Specialist
MEET SANDRA, THE PAIN RELEASE SPECIALIST
Hi. I am Sandra M. Urquhart. I am a faith-filled, believing child of God first and foremost. My intuitive gift comes from God, but I had no idea I was going to be a pain release specialist.
I am a single mother second, having raised my son on my own since he was two years old. He is now in his early twenties and resides with me.
The First Of My Two Passions
It has been a long road to getting here, but I am happy to have finally arrived. I had a natural inclination towards both arts and natural health. The arts were my first passion, so I pursued that first.
I used to do pencil drawings and portraits from a photograph as small as a driver’s license photo. My preference was black and whites. I also pursued photography for a brief time.
Crocheting hats, scarves, face-flowers, and decorative baby hangers were my preferred crafts, but more recently I’ve grown interested in mixed media. I may display them on the site or give copies or samples of those away at some point.
How I Found My Voice
I was a suppressed teenager who found her voice in prose. When I wrote, I could say whatever I wanted; even to people who scared me. Things I never had the nerve to say, I could say out loud with a pen and paper.
It started with prose and turned into writing up EEO cases against employee abuse in a government agency. I also wrote and edited a newsletter defending employee rights. Despite being warned locally about the directness of my articles, several were picked up and published in the National Newsletter of that organization.Finally, I started my first blog in 2007 at xanga.com. Being a pain release specialist was the farthest thing from my mind. I had been working as a graphic designer, but I was more focused on writing.
God was showing me about life. I didn’t think anyone was paying attention. It was something I just did for myself. Then, people started coming to see what I had to say. All of a sudden, I had visitors from countries I had not ever heard of.
Finding My True Passion
During this time, I was in a transition. Deciding to venture into my other passion – natural health and healing, was based on research in the holistic realm for years. Being a pain release specialist was still the farthest thing from my mind, but I was trying to figure out what was happening to my own body.
Seemingly minor things when looked at individually, were more noticeable when I started linking them. Connecting the dots, I began to see patterns. During this time, I began to consider a career in a natural healing practice.
I considered chiropractic but decided to start with Massage Therapy. Seven years ago, I walked into American Institute and knew I was finally where I belonged. For the first time in my life, I felt like I was home.
How I Became A Pain Specialist
While in this school, I did not focus on Swedish (spa) massage. I was always the rebel with a cause; doing the opposite of what I was being taught most of the time. It wasn’t because I didn’t understand. I understood more than anyone thought.
In fact, the seniors were surprised that I came with the knowledge of Meridians and body maps before even starting school. As seniors, they were just learning these things. But I had been researching natural healing techniques for several years.
Therefore, my original goal was to go after pain, because my own pain issues had started developing. Furthermore, I felt that exerting so much energy in doing Swedish massage was an exercise in vanity.
Most people have adhesions and tension along with fascia problems that need to be addressed. A luxury treatment that doesn’t truly affect the restricted muscular condition and release it fully is pointless. Massage in its infancy was a natural medical health treatment.
When I got licensed and started working, my focus was on releasing pain and tension problems. I created my technique in the first year because I was always asking my clients questions about their pain.
Through careful observations and the skill of listening, I became intuitive and learned to read pain patterns in the bodies I worked on. I was dubbed, “The Muscle Whizperer” by a client because the muscles speak to me; and I am a whiz at releasing them.
Creating A System
My theories on what I thought would help my clients were explained in a logical manner. I would explain the pattern and path of where the pain would most likely affect their bodies. Once they understood the problem and my methodology of releasing their pain, they trusted me. They would always give me the go-ahead to do whatever I wanted.
In this manner, I was able to experiment a lot and find out what worked and what didn’t. Most of the muscular experiments were conducted on me first. Then, as I became more skilled with the technique or theory, I’d bring it to my clients.
At that point, spa work began to frustrate me. Many people with spa mentality expect a fluffy rubdown to make them feel good. I was trying to release muscle restrictions and adhesion that would cause pain. They preferred that I just roll over the problems and ignore them.
They didn’t understand that I was trying to provide them with a better end result. I was providing relief and relaxation that would last longer. Additionally, spa employers didn’t understand that my focus has always been releasing pain. It is my nemesis, so I’m always after it to defeat it.
I had developed my intuition, technique, and system as a pain release specialist. I started working in chiropractor and medical offices, but I kept finding the same ethical problems. People who were suffering unnecessarily with pain; and doctors who weren’t really providing any effective treatment.
It angered me that people who were suffering were being given figurative bandaids as a treatment for their pain problems. Many were insulted or ignored – being told that their pain was all in their minds. As a pain release specialist, I knew that these people were being deceived.
What was especially aggravating to me were the PIP places that ran people through a gamut of bare minimum treatments meant to pad charges to insurance companies. Real healing was not promoted.
The chief officer of operations in the PIP place I worked for; boasted to me about their company having the highest percentage of insurance payouts in the state, at 18%. They padded their own pockets and that of the lawyers working in conjunction with them.
They preyed upon weak injured people, who were scared and not aware of the game nor how to recuperate from their injuries, pain and related losses.
There were two other places that aggravated me by taking advantage of their patient’s pain in order to claim insurance payments. The first was the “pain management” offices.
The doctors were anesthesiologists loading people up with chemicals in shots or drugs. They were compensated in kickbacks from the pharmaceutical companies to administer these drugs. Whether or not it actually helped anyone was not their concern.
They did this whether it was truly helpful to the patient or not. After putting a patient through a 2-year agenda of ineffective and unnecessary medicated treatments; they would recommend the surgical implant.
To milk more payments from the insurance companies, they would recommend a defibrillator at 6k each. They would send the patient to one of their surgical partners to continue taking advantage and treating people like lab rats. It’s a total game.
The final one that annoyed me was the chiropractic offices I worked for. Their business model calls for ongoing treatments labeled as “maintenance.”
Keeping patients on a continual merry-go-round of minimized adjustments are the goal. They provide just enough temporary, short-term relief. There is no intention that these treatments will ever be a real permanent or lasting solution that ends the “necessity” for their treatments.
This is offered as a “solution.” As long as you stay on the merry-go-round of continuous visits you will continually get temporary relief. The purpose is to create dependence. This is why I was never a good fit in those offices.
The Power Of Knowledge
I was always trying to help the patients to understand why they were really having the pain issues they had. I have always believed that if people were armed with the knowledge of what was really causing their pain, and were shown what they could do to aggressively manage it themselves, they would do so.
All the time and money lost – living in doctor’s offices daily, could be regained. This knowledge would allow them to take back control over their own lives. They could learn how to manage the pain themselves. This allows them to stay ahead of it, preventing the manifestation of pain altogether.
I was on a mission to return control to the individual patients, while the doctors were trying to create dependence. As a pain release specialist, I realize that all doctors are not like this, but this is what I have seen in pain management establishments.
Extending My Reach
While visiting pain boards and forums, I discovered that there were millions of people suffering unnecessarily, worldwide. Many had lost careers, spouses, and family, as well as homes because of their pain problems.
My frustration was that I was only able to help a few people that came to the offices where I worked. My reach was limited. As a pain release specialist, I needed a way to help more people suffering from pain.
Education Is The Key
That’s when I decided that I wanted to use education first to help people. They needed to understand the pain and the factors that cause it to manifest in the first place.
It would require a holistic approach that caters to the whole body and does not sever and separate the body into parts. Regard for the whole person as a trifold being made up of spirit, mind, and body is essential. People must learn to understand the foundations of pain on all three levels.
Only then can they learn to naturally manage their pain and eliminate it. This coupled with a system and tools that I would teach them how to use; would enable hurting people to take back control.
They could manage their lives in such a way as to prevent pain from ever having an opportunity to raise its ugly head. I focused on my passion for eliminating pain into this website. It is my hope to help you alleviate and eliminate your pain into extinction naturally.
