Two years ago, I suffered through a trauma that turned everything upside down. Until then, I had lived a relatively easy and comfortable life so was really not prepared to handle any serious loss. Consequently, I fell into a deep depression. Of course, all things in life are blessings and while it has not been easy, I am truly grateful for what happened as it initiated my spiritual journey. I started meditating, doing yoga, breathing exercises, reading spiritual books and just about anything else I could to help me cope. However, despite my desperate attempts to feel better, I was actually suppressing the pain rather than releasing it. Each time a bad memory or emotion would surface, I'd automatically judge it and push it back down. Ultimately, this energized the trapped negative energy and created an equilibrium that prevented me from truly healing. Now, as someone who'd spent the past two years exploring spirituality, I didn't think there was much more I could do for myself, other than be patient and let it pass naturally with time. Therefore, when I contacted Colin about an energy healing session, I didn't have huge expectations. After-all, I thought I'd tried everything. I was wrong. Colin took me to a gem of a spot last Friday afternoon. We got comfortably situated in the peaceful, natural enclave, chatted for a bit and then dove straight into it. Over the course of the next several hours, he worked his magic, guiding me on a journey that took me deep into my soul. With great focus, passion and love, he helped me to connect with Mother Earth, opened up my chakras, and cleansed my body of trapped negative energy. Being perfectly honest, I was very happy with the session but still didn't have huge expectations for the results. I figured it was just another nice meditation that would help but not offer anything transformative. However, the following morning, I was surprised to wake up feeling lighter. Now normally, whenever I woke up, I'd be bombarded with negative thoughts (stemming from the trauma) that would stimulate negative emotions in my gut. It felt like I was poking a thorn in my heart. I hated it; so much to the point that I actually feared waking up in the morning. However, this morning was different. For one, the thoughts came but not with the same intensity. But more importantly, when I had them, there was zero emotional reaction. It felt as though the thorn that I'd been poking for the previous two years had been surgically removed from my heart chakra (somewhere in my gut). Without the thorn, the thoughts just didn't have the same power. And with nothing to poke, there was nothing to be afraid of. Since then, the healing progress has been rapid. Whenever I feel the pain begin to accumulate, I employ the practices Colin taught me and release the energy. By finally learning to let the pain out, rather than fight it and keep it trapped, I have officially started a new chapter in my life. Unsurprisingly, this inner state of peace and openness is already manifesting externally and I have more to be excited about than I have in a very long time. Colin is a genuine, passionate, and determined healer who is on a mission to help as many people as he can. He has an infectious energy that radiates peace and love and I would recommend a session with him to anyone, for any reason. Regardless of where you are in life, I believe he can help you. If you want to hear more about my experience, don't hesitate to contact me – I could speak at length at how much it meant to me and would wish the same experience for anyone.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are the different types of physical therapy?

Physical therapists work with people who have been injured or people who are ill to improve their movement and help them manage their pain. The U.S. Department of Labor explains that physical therapists “are often an important part of rehabilitation, treatment, and prevention of patients with chronic conditions, illnesses, or injuries.” Physical therapists can also choose to specialize in one of nine areas. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, these areas of specialization are:

  • Cardiovascular and Pulmonary
  • Clinical Electrophysiology
  • Geriatrics
  • Neurology
  • Oncology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Pediatrics
  • Sports and
  • Women's Health

 

The national average cost for a physical therapist is $60 to $80, although it will cost more if the patient is paying for services out of pocket rather than through insurance. If you have insurance and want to work with a physical therapist for a specialty area, such as oncology or geriatrics, you may need a referral from your general practitioner. Patients who are paying directly for services can often contact the physical therapist directly.

What exactly does a physical therapist do?

A physical therapist is a health care provider who assists patients with mobility improvement and pain management. Often patients are referred to a physical therapist by a primary care doctor or specialist for help recovering from a surgery or traumatic injury, such as a car crash. Physical therapists help patients manage pain that results from chronic disease and other illness. Physical therapy can help enhance mobility when patients are faced with neurological disorders, such as after a stroke, and provide relief from arthritis or other mobility and pain issues.   

A physical therapist uses medical exercise equipment and exercises to empower patients to regain flexibility and mobility where possible. They may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more to improve muscle control and movement. A physical therapist uses physical movement to help heal the patient, but also can sometimes prescribe medication as appropriate. A physical therapist can also become board certified in one of nine specialty areas.

Why is physical therapy important?

Physical therapy can help you recover range of motion and ease pain after injury, accident or illness. Many people are prescribed physical therapy by their primary care doctor or specialist after a car accident, surgery or sports-related injury. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to start physical therapy, but unless you are paying out of pocket for the services, your insurance provider might require a referral. Physical therapy is also a medical solution for pain associated with chronic illness such as osteoarthritis and can be used for recovery after a stroke or other neurological disorders.

Physical therapy teaches you how to move your body in a safe and healing way to regain strength and movement. During a physical therapy session, the PT will teach you to use medical exercise equipment and approved exercises to regain your lost flexibility and improve your mobility where possible. You may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more. From young children to seniors, patients of any age can benefit from the science-based movements and exercises that encourage flexibility, rebuild muscle, and ease stiff joints.

How much does a physical therapy session cost?

The national average cost for a physical therapy session is $60 to $80, although the cost may be higher if the patient pays out of pocket for the services instead of being covered by insurance. Physical therapy sessions may last from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the therapist and your medical needs. When paying out of pocket, session rates may range from an average of $75-$300 or more, depending on the location, length of session, and specialization of the therapist. Standard out-of-pocket rates average $150 per session. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, physical therapists may become board certified in one of nine specialties: Cardiovascular and Pulmonary, Clinical Electrophysiology, Geriatrics, Neurology, Oncology, Orthopaedics, Pediatrics, Sports, and Women's Health. To receive this board specialist certification, the physical therapist must complete a minimum of 2,000 hours of clinical work in their specialty area and pass an exam. A physical therapist who is board certified in a specialty may charge higher rates to account for their advanced training and expertise.
