At Essence of Pure Living, Sherry uses thermography to identify areas of inflammation within the body due to physiological changes. These changes could stem from from illness, disease, and compromised areas of the body. Thermography also helps to monitor healing processes.
Massage services are provided to assist in reducing muscle tension and pain relief; improve lymphatic, digestive and immune function; and promote relaxation. Raindrop and Vibrational Raindrop Techniques are favorites at Essence of Pure Living due to the emotional healing and bodily detox functions of the Raindrop technique.
Use of therapeutic grade essential oils, which assist in activating the body’s natural healing abilities and create wellness and balance at the cellular level, are a part of the everyday therapies offered at Essence of Pure Living.
What is Thermography?
Thermography: a noninvasive, radiation-free assessment tool to see what’s happening inside of you.
Radiation Free Asssessment Option
Thermography represents an affordable solution for your physical assessment needs. Full body scans (front, back, head to toe), can show indications of unhealthy changes going on inside of you, usually looking like inflammation, and are a signal for help. A few examples are the thyroid gland, carotid artery disease, deep vein thrombosis vs. superficial varicosities, gastrointestinal involvement, sinus issues, gum problems, headaches, plantar fasciitis, muscular stress and strain, joint related changes, and more. Darkened scans, especially over hands, feet, and lower legs, may indicate problems with circulation or a neuropathy.
Thermography of the breast can detect abnormality 8-10 years before mammography can detect a mass.
Hi Ladies! In my early 40’s, I started the mammogram routine, especially due to family breast cancer history. My Paternal Grandmother and her two sisters had breast cancer as I was told, and one led to lung cancer. Having had five children and nursed all five for a year, I figured all my hormones were in sync, so why bother with it, except for the family history.
My first mammogram was fine, despite the pain of my breasts being squeezed beyond recognition. You who have had one understand! Good thing breasts are pliable and go back to their correct shape! My second mammogram was not so perfect and so began a short but confsuing saga of multiple mammograms, an ultrasound, and the frustrating “hush, hush” of the tech not being able to tell me what was going on in my “suspicious” looking breast tissue.
Over a week later, I was finally ushered into the doctor’s office and told I had fibrocystic breasts, which led me to ask: Why? What does that mean? Does it lead to cancer? Do I have a tumor? I really didn’t know! And despite being a nurse, this was all new to me!
The answers given were okay, but the “concern” that I’d need closer follow-ups and more mammograms (and I did at least understand the concept of MORE radiation), made me start some research. That research led me to say to my doctors, “No, I do not want to have another 6 month appointment.” “No, I do not want another annual appointment.” “No, I am not being irresponsible.” “No, I do not want more radiation in my body.” “No, I am actually okay with not choosing mammograms anymore.” “No.”
It took three years to have the office stop sending me cards to make an appointment. The reason? I could not understand it actually at the moment, but my instincts told me it was not for me. The anxiety of having a mammogram and the suspicions that kept me in fear of the worst for a week was not cool. And it made an impact on me. I would not go through that again. And I did not.
It would be about 10 years until I discovered Thermography. And I am thrilled that I did!
