Testimony Juan Pedro Mendoza

Focal Hand Dystonia

Instrument: Bass Guitar
Time suffered before beginning the treatment: 1 year

“Hello, my name is Juan Pedro Mendoza, I play bass guitar and I am going to talk about my experience with Ruth.

Working with Ruth is very fascinating. She explains from beginning to end, as much in the sessions as in the moment of leaving us exercises to do during the week, everything in a way that is really easy to understand. Some things have been difficult for me in the sessions, but she explained it to me in a way that I could understand. I quickly assimilated what she wanted me to do.

What is special about Ruth for me is that as she also suffered from this illness, she understands very well what one goes through in the moment that they have dystonia. She explains it in a way that one can understand and she also puts herself in our shoes as patients. She explains everything in a way that is easy to understand what we have to do in the treatment.

The results that Ruth said I would have, I have received. Some of them more rapidly than I expected, as I before taking this treatment with Ruth I had taken some other treatments in which I advanced very little. With Ruth, in the fifth session many of the spasms that I had in my hand disappeared and the contractions that occurred in my hand relaxed. This was something that personally helped me; it motivated me to continue with the treatment.

What I have understand about this illness and its treatment in my body is that now I know when I am stressed and when I have stress in certain parts of my body. The treatment has helped me to resolve this stress and the tightening of my body and it has helped me to resolve it much more easily.

Without doubt I would recommend Ruth to all fellow musicians or to the people that suffer from this illness. Don´t doubt it, in truth they should take this treatment. I was also a bit sceptical before undertaking it, but now that I am living it, logically I would openly recommend it. Don´t doubt it.

Anyway that is everything from me, best wishes. “

“The work with Ruth is very straight forward. The truth is that she adapts greatly to all the needs that I have. All of the sessions that we do each week last about one to one and a half hours and in them we can work in a very specific way everything that we want to work on. It is very comfortable working with her.

The way that we work is using Brainspotting and other diverse methods that she uses with me. Above all they help you to really connect to the sensations that your body has in each moment and to relive certain moments that have generated fear or situations that can affect the control of your mind and of your mind over your body. From there correcting all of these sensations to be able to find yourself well within yourself and above all having an inner balance, which I hadn´t felt for a long time and thanks to her I have been able to achieve.

As well as finding myself really balanced; in what is the union between the body and the mind she give you the power to control what your mind wants and that the body executes it.

Of course I would recommend working with her. I think that it is something that we don´t give the importance that it has and it is really necessary.”
