The Tin Warrior and the Guru

Follow the light, for you know not what awaits.

Dazzling angels dance with starry light, illuminating from the already bright airy room. Her pearly whites, hurting my eyes. We weren’t used to such brightness. One of them sang in a language I somehow understood, although we didn’t speak the same language.

“The guru will be with you shortly. Be seated, please.”

My stiff hands mutely stuck together without consent they lift into a rather awkward namaste salute. Don’t ask me why, even my hands don’t know. And I’m sure neither did the slightly bemused angels. I hobble to a row of seats, rattling in the quiet.

The angels fade into the clean white walls as I begin to drift into my thoughts. Soft music rolls in my ears, it is jarring. We are not accustomed to such serene calmness. Feeling oddly out of place, I shift in my seat making an unwelcome racket. Tin joints, groan in failed attempts. Sighing I close my eyes, weary. Weathering many storms for the last three years, I was disturbed by the teasing light. Actually, I was uncomfortable. The craving for my dark haven begging insistently. The call of warm familiarity aching inside. The pregnant cocoon of old ways, calling me home. I hadn’t left it in awhile. I was afraid to see the reality behind my darkened gloom.

Trembling, I clutch my tin fingers together. Pressing them against my erratic heart beat. There was something strange about this room full of warm light. It was awake with a life of its own. Suddenly, I was hot all over. Everything still and alive at the same time. This was when the angel cooed again breaking into my trance.

“Room 1, please.”

Her voice smoothly reassuring. It breaks my impending nervous breakdown. I nod. My slow attempt at standing an ugly falter. Rather messy, if I say so. I hesitate. I hear her thoughts and decline her unspoken offer. I didn’t need help or her pity. Spraying rain droplets everywhere, I put one metal foot in front of the other. And finally the motor begins to churn to some version of life. Of course, at no speedy race course. Eventually, I arrive at the elusive room 1. The door ajar, I again hesitate but some magical force wills me in.

Room 1 is dimly lit, casting curious shadows on the pale walls. It’s scent sweet, Room 1 is a floral garden of various delicacies. The window a high one, sheltering us from the peek boo of determined sun rays, play fighting with the grey. It throbs with an unusual electric energy, yet peaceful all the same. It’s tune a slow hum of a drum beat rolling against waves. Tentatively I step forward. One step after another. My shuffling strangely loud for such an alive room. Unexpectedly, I smile at Room 1 and it winks back in a greeting jest.

“Hello, Tin Warrior.”

Chants a gentle voice from nowhere in particular. My nervous eyes quickly dart across the room since my stuck frame can’t. Without any warning the door slams shut. I look up. To my amazement, I find a man floating, his long legs crossed, lean arms hanging loosely. His eyes twinkle with mischief. A halo of light clinging to his wild hair. His pale skin ghostly. My hair tingles, I don’t even know what hair tingling would feel like but it tingled, I swear.

I suppress my gasp, actually I swallow it. It would be rude not too.

“It has been long. I have been waiting for you. We have much to do, I see.”

I don’t know how he did it, he somehow flutters towards me. Just like that, he is standing next to me. I can hear the hum of his heart beat. His soft breathing in my shocked ears. His smile wide. His whole being exploding into tiny fireworks. I shake my head, maybe I had tin cobwebs growing in it. I wished I hadn’t stayed in my hole for so long. It was then, he laughs as if he heard my internal chat. And I laugh with him, it is warmly infectious but I think I am the object of his amusement.

“We have much to do. Come my friend for you are not meant to be stuck.”

With that he takes long fingers that are as if they had been dipped in yellow warm light and places them on my burning neck. Before, I know it, my neck shockingly cracks.

“Who are you?” I whisper.

“I am the Guru.” He whispers back.

Then in a flash of lightening he is gone. This was the moment, I became transformed. My stuck frame, free from centuries old pain. I could never forget this encounter, enchantingly odd. I’m sure neither did he.

I can’t explain this magic, I am no expert. All I know is that I had to see him again. He is the expert.

“Our well being is beyond our narrow understanding.”

Be brave, embrace your bodies messages. They are signs that something is or is not in order. I hid for a long time before I admitted, something needed to change. Armed with that knowledge, I chose a new path. The Guru, a welcome surprise. If you are in the area, why not visit him at Only you can change your life.

Until we meet again, be safe, be happy, be bold. Why not find your own Guru?

Tin Warrior.

“Dr Sean is an amazing chiropractor and the most wonderful person too. I was privileged to be both a colleague and a patient of Sean’s for over 3 years and both Chiropractic and Sean have changed my life. Before I had been in chronic pain with muscular skeletal problems and degenerative disc disease for over 30 years which blighted my life and restricted almost everything I wanted to do. I relied on strong opioid pain relief to get me through my working day and to be able to sleep. Chiropractic has enabled me to be medication free for the 1st time in 20 years. I know now that my body CAN heal itself and it is wonderful to be pain free. I have little set backs every now and then, but regular Chiropractic ensures that these do not last for long. I cannot recommend Dr Sean highly enough. He truly wants to help everyone he can with his amazing skills. His calm and caring manner and professionalism is second to none. People of Singapore, you are lucky to have him.”

” Dr Lee is an amazing chiropractor. He has helped myself , my husband and my daughter become pain free on many occasions. Many thanks for your help “

“Sung 的技术真的很棒,他帮我检查了整个脊椎,像脖子,背部的问题都解决了。最重要的是我腰那边痛了很久,坐在痛,晚上睡觉更是翻来覆去睡不着,经过Sung的治疗后, 晚上睡上好觉啦。他还很暖心的教我几个保护腰部的动作,我每天都在练习,现在腰痛没了。很感谢Sung的帮助。还会继续定期去找Sung做治疗的”

“I came to Sung as a patient i had limited mobility due to a condition i suffered from which was Fibromyalgia. With Sung’ s help I found my mobility improved and with his re-adjustments i was able to reduce my medication! Sung not only is he an amazing chiropractor who helped relieve the pain i was in, he made me feel completely relaxed and he is genuinely one of the nicest people I have ever met and i would thoroughly recommend him!! “

“I recommend Sean because he is amazing at his art. This doesn’t feel like a job and I was just his patient- a way to make money only. The whole chiropractor experience was beautiful. Meeting Sean, changed my life. I was bed bound with CFS/ME for 3 years before we met. After it, I am able to lead a quality of life that I never thought I was able to have again. Sean didn’t just “adjust my body”, we also shared tips on mindset, diet, energy, pacing etc. I am not saying it cured my CFS but it did allow me to do more. I am in less pain. However, sadly, I am not in the UK and haven’t been adjusted since October as I can’t find someone who I want to work with. Sean set the bar high. I do, still practice the stretching and mindfulness we talked about. Plus, Sean is really friendly, a good listener and incredibly empathic- I always felt heard and could facilitate the adjustment in ways I felt I needed. So, if you need a spine Guru, you truly won’t be disappointed. Thank you for everything. “
