- Treatments, Reports & Documentaries
Please be aware that in the immediate period following a treatment one can have a sense that all of life’s problems are solved and that one is completely free. It can be a blissful experience but it can also be deceptive. Unless measures are taken to apply the lessons learned and also to unravel issues which have emerged, one can drop back into the old pattern along with it’s cravings etc.
