This is our second visit to the Advance Centre for The Scotson Technique at East Grinstead, West Sussex.
Today is the last day and we have learnt several new techniques - some are much more complex than the earlier ones. This time we are building on the previous techniques - working on the lungs, thyroids, brain and of course the diaphragm.
The first day we made a big mistake - I took my son into the hyperbaric chamber while he was sleeping. Unfortunately he woke up as soon as the gas was pumped in with a hiss. I guess he was confused and scared and started crying - I would be as well if I was in his place. Well, we had to cut the session short but it still took a while to open the chamber as the pressure had to be brought down slowly. All the while he was crying and sweating. He tried everything to get me to open up - saying he wanted milk, that he wanted to pee, etc. However, we had to wait for all the air to go out and when it finally open we were both relieved.
We should have taken it a little a time and get him used to the chamber. There is no way we are going to get him into the chamber again soon. We did notice that he was really active and was even saying some new words when we got home. I felt great as well. We have heard so many parents saying positive things about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and I definitely do want to try it out again.
