Summary of the testimonial

My name is Glen M. and I have a daughter, Courtney, who is 22. She has Down syndrome and has been treated for depression for the past 3 years. This past March we began taking her up to the chamber. She has gone from a recluse mute, to a girl who will engage with others and communicate verbally once again. She is also on medication, but she has been on medication for 3 years and it was only after a week in the chamber that we noticed a marked improvement in her behavior and willingness to communicate. Since Courtney won't get in the chamber alone, my husband or I have had the benefit of experiencing it also. I can say that I sleep better, and my skin has gained some elasticity. Courtney's skin has become much softer and her feet are not as rough and dry like they once were. Also, my little aches and pains have diminished as a result of the chamber. We have been trying to walk with her in the evening in the park for the past year. She was always tired and dragging. After visiting the chamber, Courtney keeps up with my husband, Scott and me pretty well. Her energy level has definitely improved, as has mine. Courtney is doing things again that she hasn't done in years; such as coloring and writing in her notebook, watching videos, looking in magazines and listening to her CDs. Could it be a coincidence? We don't think so. We feel the chamber has been a benefit to both her physical and mental health.
