Client Testimonial (Dagmara)

Dear lady Chew-Nyet,

First of all I am so grateful to you and your work and I write from this place of gratitude now. I wish you the utmost success in your healing and empowering other people through Hakomi. I am so glad that main stream health is getting on board with deemed non-conventional healing practices.
The major way that I see the sessions have helped me is that I am calmer, more confident and more understanding of myself and therefore others. It is as if there is more room in me to accept whatever is happening in front of me and not to react, but to create in response. The way that this has impacted my life is in my close relationships, in my relationship to myself. Close friends and family have noticed a big difference. I hear them say, ” Wow you are so calm Dagmara.” -My cousin
“You have really grown” – My boyfriend.
“You changed, I didn’t” – My father. He said this in acknowledgement of our communication improving.

There is a big moment in our conversations that stands out for me, it is when you said that I do not have to swing so hard in reaction to triggers in my life. I understood what you said on an intellectual level but I didn’t understand what that meant in my reality. Well, I do now. I get to create how I want to react in any given situation. I believe this came about because I started to understand what was going on inside of me, I began to feel what was going on inside of me and that created space from feeling the effects of a trigger to reacting to it. There was a separation between associating the trigger with something personal within myself and from what was actually happening.

The other powerful aspect of the sessions allowed my many selves to come out. The space that you create, and hold, allowed for my little girl to come out, my dark energy, all these energies within me began to surface and we explored them together. I felt heard, and loved for showing you and myself all these selves. In showing all that I began to accept myself more and more. The greatest thing is that by experiencing those selves with you freely I could now experience them by myself. It is as if acknowledging myself fully within the safe space of the Hakomi practice allowed for me to see myself, understand it and then be okay with it on my own.
I wrote at the beginning that I have gained more self confidence through the work. This has manifested itself in my finances, an area I have always avoided. I am now budgeting monthly, I have paid off my student loan in full and I am going to work in Tokyo Japan, which is a dream I have had for around seven years.

I do believe that the Hakomi sessions have been extremely influential in these changes in my life for Hakomi helped me to understand myself better and out of that comes much power to create a life I love.

A Rumi quote that came into my life a couple of weeks ago and I paraphrase for it goes something to the effect of, I was smart so I went about to change the world, I became wise so I went about to change myself.
What I take from that is that contributing to the world means taking responsibility for our own lives and working on ourselves to be the best person we can possibly be. Hakomi is a powerful avenue for this kind of growth.

Client Testimonial (Claudette)

I have recently been to see Chew-nyet for 2 Hakomi sessions and am so very pleased with the changes in myself and my life.  I was a bit hesitant when I first decided to try Hakomi – as I wasn’t really familiar with it.  Chew-nyet was so welcoming; her warm personality and confidence put me at ease immediately.

The sessions were life changing.  I originally went to see her for help with weight loss and my relationship with eating – I tend to binge eat when I am stressed and procrastinating.  What I discovered during the session was that I hadn’t been truly happy and able to enjoy life for a very long time.  I churned with worries and was often stressed and too busy in my life.  After the first session I felt amazing – so happy, light, confident – I seemed to shed a lot of emotional weight.  I could not stop smiling.  I left feeling wonderful and the feeling continued.

In the week that followed the session – my eating habits completely changed – I ate very little – only what I wanted and the pounds fell away. There was no struggle with food.  I slept better than I had in years.  I had new found energy and was no longer procrastinating.  If I hadn’t experienced the results for myself, I would not have believed that one session could change me the way that it did.

Thank you Chew-nyet for sharing your amazing gift with me.  And for giving me the time and space to come and try something new when I was ready – which must have been challenging when you knew how you could help me and improve my life so significantly.

Thank you!

I’m Dr. Devon Christie, a medical doctor with specialty in functional and integrative medicine. If you want to know more about my specialty, google: “Dr. Oz functional medicine detectives“, as my specialty was recently featured on his show.

In my work I use the symbol of the medicine wheel.
(hold up example of a medicine wheel – it is a circle divided into 4 quadrants, and starting clockwise the words are written “PHYSICAL“, “MENTAL“, “EMOTIONAL” and “SPIRITUAL” in each of the quadrants).

Most cultures in human history has some version of this wheel to represent health, which is a state of wholeness and positive vitality.

Modern medicine does a good job addressing the physical aspect of health, but you can see that that is only one quarter of the whole picture. These other 3 parts, mental, emotional and spiritual, are just as important and actually interact in a real way with physical health.

My colleague Chew Nyet Lee is a Hakomi therapist.

Hakomi is a healing practice that helps us to work with the other 3/4 of the medicine wheel. Sometimes we are not aware that there are problems in these areas, and because of this we get stuck and wonder why the physical treatments don’t work completely.

Thank goodness our bodies are so smart and they give us clues like headaches or muscle pain in a certain area. By exploring these symptoms with Hakomi, we can uncover their messages that link to the other parts of the medicine wheel and then we can release them completely to discover the freedom of healing in its complete sense (point to medicine wheel in a circular motion emphasizing all the quadrants together).

I had a session with Chew-Nyet after developing sudden severe pain in my right shoulder blade. I have had this type of pain before in my life on several occasions, and I usually went for massage or took some pain pills and it would slowly go away. In my hakomi session with Chew Nyet, she helped guide me to my own insight about the message my body was giving me. The pain eased away and I haven’t had any similar pain since then.

The future of medicine and the key to discovering our true potential is to acknowledge the wisdom of our ancestors and return to a system that integrates the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of our health. Hakomi is a powerful tool that gives breakthrough results for your health and your life!
