“Being sick from the age of 9, battling with pain, dislocations and subluxations on the daily. I had pain in my wrists, fingers, hips, shoulders, feet, knees – you name it. I wore braces and splinters, used crutches or a wheelchair depending on my energy levels. I tried everything the Norwegian healthcare system had to offer me over the years, without any success. Having to ‘drop out’ of school and stop taking part in social activities. I started feeling very hopeless regarding my future.Then my very stubborn mom, who had been searching high and low for years after a way to get me healthier told me about a man in Newcastle called ‘The Fibro Guy’. And I thought, why not, let’s do it, I can’t loose anything by trying this as well. And let me tell you, it has been the best decision I’ve made in years. The day I arrived in Newcastle, we did some sightseeing and my hips subluxated 9 times, my dad carried my bag because it was too heavy for my sliding shoulders. I was so exhausted after a few hours I fell asleep at 8’o clock in the evening. I didn’t know if i could make it to the car to get to the appointment with Adam. Luckily I did.
After just a few sessions, with doing my foundations at home I flipped Jeff 3 times. My energy levels rose through the ceiling, I stopped subluxating, my pains are now basically gone and my mindset has been completely changed. I’ve gained a social life, I’ve lived by myself in a foreign country, travelled, gone on hikes, even gone clubbing. It’ s been hard and at times exhausting work, but it has definitely been more than worth the pain. No pain no pain. My parents are now getting back a completely new Hedda, with so much energy, joy and hope for her future.”
*Update – Hedda enjoyed living in Newcastle so much, that she decided to move from her home in Norway. Hedda started her practitioner training with Adam, and now runs the Newcastle studio. You can read her story here.
