The Good Life- Lisa's Story
Since the age of 14, Lisa suffered with back pain. Through the years of experiencing at times such debilitating pain that would bring her to a complete halt that she could not work, could barely take care of her children without having help. Through the years of taking pain medicine, this compounded Lisa's downward spiral of depression.
The defining moment in Lisa's life was when she was lying in bed with such pain that she flirted with the idea of taking her life, taking the entire bottle of pills with alcohol, the pain was so great, her coping mechanisms were gone. As she began to do this, the crying sound of her two month old daughter waking up from her nap was 'the light,' the moment that would change the course of her life forever. She knew she had to live for her two beautiful daughters if not for herself.
She began her journey to wellness getting help and relief with acupuncture and other integrative modalities. Something was still missing though, Lisa kept thinking and saying "what can I do for myself, what is my self-care? You have to drive to get healing treatments, what can I do for myself in the way of moving my own body to stay strong and mobile?" Her acupuncturist suggested tai chi and chi gong. Lisa found a school, began her studies and realized that the missing link had been found.
Through the diligent, consistent practice of these Chinese Healing Arts of tai chi and chi gong, Lisa was able to alleviate her pain and heal her mind and body. Through her journey to wellness, she founded, The Good Life, A Daily Dose of Vitamin Chi.
