Hands and heart

Massage therapy and spiritual healing make second career for Anderson woman

(Continued)

On her third visit, Ballard said, “I could feel her hands trembling. I looked up and I could see her head shaking. Her hands were hot as fire, I swear.”

When Goss stopped trembling, there was a moment of quiet, before Goss told Ballard to thank God for what he’d done for her. “I got up and walked out of there. ... I’ve never had any problems with that knee since.”

“It’s a mystery. It comes through her, I know it comes through her,” said Ballard. “I think it all works through God, to be honest with you.”

Client Heather Stommel doesn’t know how it works either, but she’s on board. In 2009, her then 3-year-old Trevor woke up one morning and couldn’t get out of bed. A trip to the emergency room ultimately revealed that Trevor had vascular necrosis.

“His hip socket wasn’t getting any blood,” said Stommel. As a result Trevor’s hip was starting to die off. A visit to the orthopedic surgeon, X-rays and CT scans confirmed the diagnosis. A week later, Trevor was set to have an MRI.

In the meantime, Heather brought Trevor to Goss twice.

“I knew she was a healer. ... She did what she does,” said Stommel. Then Trevor had the MRI, and Stommel said, “The doctor was just beside himself.” He told her there was nothing on the MRI. Indeed, Trevor started walking again, and he’s just fine today.

“I think you have to be open to it,” said Stommel, who continues to visit Goss.

Another client’s child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age 1. Devastated by the diagnosis, the Anderson mom said she was ready to try anything. When she took her child to see Goss, she carried him in as he was unable to walk. “I had to carry him everywhere those days,” said the mother.
