In Their Words….
Freedom from debilitating back pain
“I was referred to Gail Creeksong by my Doctor, a trusted health professional. I had been having intermittent mid-back pain manifesting itself with constant muscle spasms. In 20 years it had grown from once a year to a much more debilitating once a month. I can say with certainty that since beginning my relationship with Gail more than a year ago I have never had a full fledged muscle spasm episode.
I have always believed health is a whole approach in body, mind and spirit. I believe my time with Gail encompasses all three. I watch my dollars very carefully but would go without many things to continue with her. The return is great. I hesitate to use the word, but miraculous comes to mind.
For the first time in 20 years I am pretty much pain free. I attribute so much of that to the choice I made to work with Gail Creeksong.”
From jaw pain to subtle energy work
“My dentist recommended I consider surgery to treat minor jaw pain. I chose alternative medicine as I sensed my pain might be caused by trapped emotional energy. I have been seeing Gail for almost three years, and my jaw pain is gone. Over the course of my monthly treatments, I watched the pain “migrate” around my body. During each session I got insight about where I was holding my tension. Gail’s nurturing and supportive approach made it very easy for me to relax and trust her. I continue to see Gail because what used to be a physical quest--- how do I expand or relax into areas where I tend to trap stress, has turned into a psycho/spiritual quest--- learning to relax in this moment.”
“Gail Creeksong has been tremendous in helping bring about a sense of overall wellness through her bodywork. I put an enormous amount of strain and stress on my body/muscles through dance and weight lifting; Gail has been instrumental in helping me achieve relief from the pain of soreness. Through Gail's body work I am better able to attain a balance between pushing my body to perform and relief from pain. She has a tremendous gift!”
Alleviating chronic pain and tension
“As a massage therapist, I trade often with my co-workers and friends. Gail is whom I chose to invest sessions with for I feel her work penetrates beyond the physical dimension of my being into the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects.
Throughout my bodywork sessions with Gail, she has helped me to alleviate chronic pain and tension, and contributed to a more comfortable experience in my body. Gail’s touch is light yet mighty, subtle and profound. Without forcing her way in, she is able to access areas that feel sensitive, vulnerable and tight. I feel her work helps me to unwind and let go of outdated patterns of holding myself physically and mentally, which opens me up to a more receptive and heart-centered way of being.
As a student and client of Gail’s I have found working with her highly beneficial, her bodywork and teaching reminds me that my own body has an internal intelligence and capacity to heal itself. “
Headache and pain resolution
“…...your treatment Saturday completely relieved the strange pain and headache I had since my bout with the flu the preceding weekend. It was so wonderful to sleep and wake up pain/ache free the next morning! You are a miracle - thank you again.”
Over the years therapeutic bodywork has become the mainstay of my health and well-being. Working with Gail Creeksong since 2013, I’ve experienced my awareness shifting--from perceiving myself as having a body, to experiencing my self as being embodied. In her practice Gail seamlessly blends techniques to address issues as they arise in treatment.
When I said I’d be happy to craft a testimonial for her website, Gail replied, “Craft? Like a poem?” Indeed, I say, why not a poem?
Ode to Bodywork with Gail
Awaken to communication
With body’s natural inclination
Toward homeostasis and self-regulation.
Hands drawn into collaboration
Trace whispers of concatenation
Thank you, Gail!
