Holistic healing the power of the mind and body in recovery from abuse with Isha Lall

Ep.13 10/12/2020

I train my mind, I tell my body that you are capable of recovering, you are capable of regenerating’

When Isha’s family found her a potential husband he seemed kind and respectful and so Isha agreed to the engagement. She spotted a few red flags, but tried to ignore them, and went ahead with the marriage. Once married, her husband went through a complete change, and began to become abusive towards her. After moving to Hong Kong together the physical and verbal abuse worsened. Following an attack that left Isha bleeding, heavily bruised, and in need of medical attention, she decided she needed to be brave, and reported her husband to the police. He was put behind bars.

Under familial pressure to make things work there was no improvement and after seeing evidence that her husband was being unfaithful, she decided she had had enough, and filed for divorce. Free from the immediate abuse, she began to feel the aftermath of the violence on her body. She started feeling pain and weakness in her back and neck until her entire righthand side was completely paralysed. Continuing her job, she was committed to not let it get in the way of her life. Though struggling at first with physical movement required by yoga, Isha focussed on chanting and the natural healing of reiki, focusing her mind on the healing of her body.

At 31 years of age, Isha’s pain stopped as a result of the healing she had committed to. Describing the moment as magical, Isha now works to counsel others to heal themselves in the same way. A holistic healer, Isha creates a bespoke programme for her clients, focusing on all aspects of their wellbeing including nutrition, mental and physical wellbeing, medication etc. She encourages people to put their entire energy into their healing, and makes sure she provides a safe space for clients to talk out their issues in order to help them start to rebuild; ‘it’s okay not to be okay’.
