Where will my bodywork session take place?
Your bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.

Must I be completely undressed?
No. Energy work requires that you remove your shoes only.  The sessions do not require you to remove your clothing.

Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on may be exposed.

What will the bodywork feel like?
Generally a light touch is used at various points on the meridian network.  You may not even feel the touch.  You will feel your body release tension and relax so that inner healer has the space to do what it needs to do.


What should I do during the bodywork session?
Prior to the session, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the bodywork, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask. You may stop the session at any time if you are uncomfortable. 

How will I feel after the bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues when energy starts flowing, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your session.

What are the benefits of bodywork?
Bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, and reduce blood pressure. Bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor's care, it is strongly advised that you discuss your choice of bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.

How is this work related to my emotional life?

Physical distress is a symptom of the distresses that begin on the mental-emotional and spiritual levels.  By releasing the physical symptoms we can understand and metabolize the emotional pain that is hidden in the sub-conscious. Working with a practioner is a good way to experience life without pain and to be in control of your own healing process.
