Lyn St. James’ Story: How Hope Anchors Her Soul
July 14, 2021 by Kezia
As an athlete, I’m very aware of my body and there’s nothing worse than when the body isn’t working, whether from an injury, recovering from surgery, or just the aging process. I’ve been told that I have a high tolerance for pain, and I often ignore what many other people might not be able to deal with. People don’t realize that a race car driver needs physical strength, and we endure tremendous amounts of vibration, concentration, and g forces. My career also requires me to travel for business and public appearances, so I spend a lot of time on airplanes and in hotels.
I was introduced to Dr. Okky Oei and his LTO (Laser Touch One) by a dear friend when I was dealing with considerable knee pain which ultimately led me to require bilateral knee replacement surgery. I know the LTO significantly accelerated my healing and it was so easy to take with me everywhere I traveled. It’s one of the first things I put in my suitcase when travelling.
Following knee replacement surgery I’ve had additional injuries and surgeries; including rotator cuff and bicep tendon surgery, fractured vertebrae, and hip placement surgery. While each of these surgeries and injuries involves very capable medical professionals (doctors, surgeons, physical therapists) each with their own specialty, their time and knowledge are often limited. That’s not the case with Dr. Okky Oei – he knows SO much, always has the time to spend to fully grasp what’s going on with your body and your life. And he’s trained each of his staff to follow the same protocols and attitude. They ask questions. They listen to you. They pay attention to what you’re telling them. They adjust your treatment to accommodate what’s happening, because the healing process evolves.
