Testimonial from Lisa Cherry 30 January 2015
After 18 months of my GP being very dismissive my osteopath wrote and asked my GP to investigate, as she though there was something quite wrong with my neck. In January 2013 she was proved right, and an MRI confirmed a prolapsed disc that was impinging half way across the spinal cord. In July after a couple of trips to the spinal clinic I was told that due to the severity of the impingement on my spinal cord there was no option but to operate and soon, but there were risks. My aunt, having had the same operation a few years earlier now needed further surgery, going as far as to say she regretted ever having the first operation. Needless to say I was in a great deal of pain, terrified, and worst of all I was without hope of a solution. My mum told me that my grandmother has visited Ray, and Paul performed surgery on her knee, so we booked an appointment and mum drove me to Ray and Jilly’s Bricket Wood Clinic. It took Paul what seemed like a few minutes and my day ended the reverse of how it had started, and I was left in wonderment of what had just happened to me. Paul ran his hand down my neck just above the surface of the skin, not even touching me. He said “that’s the spot”, and I was aware of Ray’s fingers either side of my spine and a sensation that Paul’s fingers were actually inside my neck. This was in no way painful or uncomfortable, just unusual. Paul followed the line of the nerve down through my shoulder; another area where I had been experiencing a lot of pain. Again I could feel Rays fingers on the outside but Paul’s were on the inside of my shoulder joint, they continued on down to my fingers, with the same unusual feeling. It felt as though Paul was using his fingers as surgical instruments. Paul then gently took hold of my neck and moved my head from side to side, up and down; I saw the ceiling and the floor for the first time since January! I was so surprised it wasn’t until I was sat in the car smiling and telling my mum about this miraculous event that I realized that I had no pain. On the drive there I was in tears at every corner or bump in the road, on the way home I was laughing and looking around at the scenery. My follow up appointment with the surgeon came a few weeks later and he was extremely surprised that I had improved, but assured me that this was nothing more than a temporary state and that I still needed surgery. Three months later he looked rather puzzled, asked what I had been doing differently and was still sceptical and somewhat dismissive of my explanation for my improvement. However, he did say that given the improvement in my symptoms I didn’t at that point meet the criteria for the operation, so we would defer once again. He reiterated that there was no way the improvement could be maintained given the degree of impingement and the damage done to the disc, and should I have any deterioration before we met again I was to phone and they would arrange a date for the operation. In November 2013 I went through a very thorough re-examination and assessment, the results showed nothing abnormal. I had received the ‘miracle’ Paul had told me I would need to avoid the surgery and was officially ‘signed off’ from the spinal clinic.
In May 2014 I started to experience a sharp pain in my shoulder when raising my right arm, this got worse and the pain continued down my arm toward the elbow. After an examination and scan I was diagnosed with impingement of the tendon cause by a rotary cuff being out of position. In July I was given a steroid injection and a course of robust physiotherapy. This was repeated in late September as the rotator cuff was still not aligned and still trapping the tendon. I saw my consultant in the first week of January and he recommended a further injection and said he thought we were at almost at the end of the road in terms of non- surgical intervention, and we should look to operate around April/May time. As I already knew of an excellent surgeon I contact Ray and Jilly, and saw them at their North Holmwood a couple of weeks later. Again I felt Ray’s hand scanning just above me, Paul checked my neck and said it was all as it should be (a typical surgeon; check the neck first!), he then moved on to my should and again I could feel Rays hands holding around the joint, but Paul’s fingers were working inside. After what seemed like a few minutes he said “there it is, it’s all back in place now” I was aware of the sensation of the joint moving, and that it felt as though it was sitting differently in the socket. For a day or two I kept saying I felt sure the rotator cuff had moved, I couldn’t say why, I just knew; when a few days later I could raise my hand in the air I knew for sure. Two weeks on and I have just been to the hospital for a check up. The doctor asked how I had been doing, I raised my arm above my head and said, I have been doing great. It was clearly not what she was expecting, so she suggested an ultra sound scan. The scan took twice as long as normal as she moved my arm in to various positions and scanned the shoulder joint from every angle. She said nothing until she was washing her hands after the scan, when she told me that now the cuff was in position it was important to continue with my exercises to ensure the supporting structure of the shoulder held it there. The scan clearly confirmed that Paul had been at work again.
For those who are in pain, distress, or have a need, and may well find themselves without hope of a solution; to place themselves in the care of Jilly, Ray and Paul is to witness something quite extraordinary indeed. The earth bound part of your mind will struggle to understand ‘how’ and the spiritual side of your mind will just ‘know’, that this very special and dedicated team are working ‘miracles’ in peoples’ lives every day, as if it was natural and as simple as taking a breath. I have no explanation to offer anyone who feels unsure or sceptical about the idea of psychic surgery or the work that Ray, Jilly and Paul do; all I know is that twice they have given me what |I gratefully receive as my ‘miracles’, and I am thankful that in the great expanse of the world that we know it and the realm that we don’t, these three souls crossed unexplainable divides to come together with the simple mission to help as many people as they can. If you wanted an example of humankind at its best here are three shining examples.
Grateful thanks to you Jilly, Ray and Paul.
With love and best wishes,
