What to Expect
A typical treatment session consists of the following procedure:
Discussion with the client, taking their details and gaining an understanding of why they have come to see me.
The treatment itself. For most of the therapies, the client will need to lie on a massage table. The client remains fully clothed throughout the process and is free to stop the treatment at any stage.
I work very intuitively and am guided to which therapy or mix of therapies the client most needs at the time of their appointment in order to best facilitate healing. This means every treatment is customized for the unique needs and highest good of the client.
During the treatment stage, the client may sense the flow of energies with feelings of warmth, coolness, tingling or relaxation. Clients may experience some form of emotional release during a session. This may be anything from a fit of the giggles to tears! Again, this is perfectly normal and should an emotional release occur, it is important not to suppress it. Releasing the emotion enables healing to occur. Emotional releases may also be experienced after a treatment, and again should be allowed to occur without suppression.
On rare occasions, depending on what is going on for the client at the time, they may experience restlessness or resistance to the healing work. It is important to honour this, while recognizing it as a final barrier that the subconscious is putting up to prevent healing occurring. It usually means the client needs to face something or have awareness around something that has been deeply held, but that needs to be released before the client can move on. The client will be guided and supported through this process.
Following a treatment, it is very important that the client drinks the recommended daily consumption of water for several days afterwards to flush away any toxins that may have been released. Otherwise it is possible that clients could experience headaches or feel very tired after the treatment. It is similar to the process that occurs with dietary cleanses/detoxes.
Some clients will immediately feel an improvement, while for others the integration of the energetic change may take several days. In the latter case, the client may experience varying emotional states, memories of past events or changing physical symptoms. When this occurs the client is actually “processing” and clearing “stuff” as a result of the energetic changes. This is sometimes referred to as a healing crisis, but it is just the body’s way of releasing what needs to be cleared and to bring our awareness to what we to be let go of and what is no longer benefiting us.
How long are sessions?
Treatments sessions are an hour, although a 1.5 hour session is highly recommended for the first visit due to the need to gather the case history and ensure sufficient time for treatment. We spend the time needed with no extra cost.
How many sessions will I need?
The answer is that it varies depending on the nature of the your problem and what that you wish to achieve. Sometimes one treatment is enough, but in other cases several treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. The latter is more likely to be the case if you have a chronic (long term) problem. Also if have multiple issues that you require help with, obviously more sessions will be needed as there is only so much we can achieve in one session. Don’t expect you can get rid of a life-time’s bad habits in one go!
You may just want a one-off balance or relaxation session, or you may feel that you need regular sessions as part of your ongoing journey of personal and/ or spiritual growth. It’s rather like a massage for the soul! Healing on an energetic level can be likened to peeling the layers of the onion. Over a period of time we clear more and more issues and learn how to operate in a new and healthy way in the world.
I highly recommend regular sessions (with me or anyone else!) as the effects of regular energy balances are exponential, keeping you in peak condition and leading to deep and sustained changes in the your life.
