How should I prepare for the session?
To allow us to spend more time in discussion and treatment, please plan to arrive 10 minutes early to fill out a short intake form. This form will be in the waiting area with your name on it.
To facilitate your treatment, please wear loose comfortable clothing, preferably no blue jeans, skirts or dresses. I will primarily be working through your clothing, but at times it is necessary to have direct contact with your skin. Loose clothing will allow for this easy transition as well as give your body freedom of movement during the session.
What if I am late to an appointment?
Plan enough time to arrive at your appointment unhurried. If you realize you are going to be late, please don’t rush. Just call to let me know. I rather you arrive safe and ready for the session rather than frazzled from hurrying. We’ll fit as much of your session into the remaining time as possible. Regular session fee applies.
What is your policy for rescheduling or canceling an appointment?
In the event that you must reschedule or cancel your appointment kindly give at least 48 hours notice. Any sessions canceled or changed with less than 48 hours notice will be billed at the full rate. If you need to notify me of a cancellation or rescheduling issue, please be aware that I accept notification by phone only.
How does a session begin?
At the beginning of every session I do a nonverbal check-in with you and your body. This allows me to get a sense of what is happening in your system and what your body may need in this moment. Afterwards, we’ll talk about your health, both past and present, and your intentions for the session. This is a time for you to share anything that may be going on in your life and your body. The combination of what I feel from your body and what I hear from you, will guide us in our work together ensuring that we get to the most prominent things for you during the session.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions you may need is generally dependent on the severity of the issue and the length of time you have been dealing with it. However, every body is different. I will say that most people notice a difference in their symptoms after the first 1 or 2 sessions.
Generally, after the first or second session we will have a better idea of how many sessions you will need to meet your health goals.
How should I take care of myself after a session?
It is a good idea to not schedule any strenuous activity for at least the next 24 hours after your session, and sometimes for 48 hours. Your body will be processing and integrating a lot of new information, as well as building new pathways of movement. If you exert your body too soon, there is a good chance that you will habitually engage the old ways of doing things, thereby overriding the new emerging pathways. By giving yourself some time and space after the session your body will have a chance to integrate and strengthen, forming more productive and easeful ways of being and doing.
What can you do? Take a walk outside. Walking is great for integrating new information as well as oxygenating your blood. Be gentle with yourself. Sometimes emotions that have been stored in the tissues of your body find their way out during or after the session. This is energy in motion, and for some, part of the healing process. As much as you can, allow this to happen. It will pass leaving you with a lighter, freer feeling.
Some people occasionally experience a worsening of their symptoms after a session. This too can be part of the healing process and is usually soon followed by marked improvement in overall well-being. Even still, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about this process.
