It started in 1980, with a psycho therapist by the name of Roger Callahan, and also an individual with an extreme fear of water. Mary's anxiety of water controlled her life and also kept her from daily activities.
Dr. Callahan and also Mary had been functioning on this issue together for over a year. Mary functioned up the courage to rest within sight of the pool at Dr. Callahan's home.
Her anxiety of being near the water triggered Mary belly pains - a typical "instinct." Dr. Callahan had actually recently been researching conventional Chinese medications, and also discovering meridians. All of a sudden he had a motivation.
