What Is a Session Like?
Before we schedule a session, we have a conversation in person or by phone to determine how I can help you and if working together on your problem is a good fit.
A typical holistic healing session with me starts with centering exercises that I guide you through to align the brain with the heart, so we can figure out what your goals are for the session. You may touch certain energy points on your face, trunk and/or limbs and focus on certain words, phrases, stories, or repeating statements. Sometimes I use bi-lateral sound recordings and/or bilateral kinesthetic stimulation which activate both sides of the brain.
Most simple problems can be treated in one or two sessions; however, there are often other issues that come up that need to be cleared. Therefore, I require you to commit to a minimum of three sessions in order to treat larger issues that may surface.
At the end of the session, we evaluate the problem and compare how you presently feel to how you felt when you came in for the session. Most patients report high rates of improvement. Most of my clients choose one of my programs where we work for two to six months in order to achieve even greater emotional and physical well-being.
What Happens During the Session?
When we work on a problem, I may ask some questions to get details about the issue and what is difficult or challenging about it. You may be surprised at what comes up. I listen carefully to what you say, how you feel and what comes up for you. From there I guide you through steps that will help clear the problem.
During the session you may experience a deeper, more relaxed breathing—a signal that something changed. At times, emotions may intensify, and that indicates a deeper problem that needs to be addressed. Yawning, sighing, and shedding gentle tears of release are all common reactions, but sometimes it seems like nothing special is happening, yet you no longer experience the painful emotions that you used to feel. You just feel more peaceful.
After the session, you may find that things or people that triggered you no longer have that effect. You are at peace when you would have responded with pain, anger, shame or guilt. You might find more joy in your life and be more aware of your emotions.
How Do I Know It Worked?
You know you are healing when you feel a sense of completion, a sense of peace, contentment and satisfaction. You feel honored and respected in your relationships. You acknowledge and accept your feelings unconditionally—whether anger, sadness or joy.
You know it worked when the symptoms you experienced dissolve, when you no longer react to old triggers, no longer crave foods that are unhealthy. You lose excess weight without working at it. You no longer feel pain. You feel confident taking an exam or speaking in front of an audience. You can express yourself, honor yourself and listen to you own heart.
You know you have moved beyond persistent or insurmountable grief when you no longer feel that same void, that grief, that anxiety or that heaviness in you chest. You can remember the good times and feel lighter and at peace with life.
Will I Stop or Change My Medications?
The work we do does not involve medications or surgery. Only your primary care doctor or specialist can make that decision with you. When your medical condition improves, your doctor will know and be able to determine whether changes in the medical regimen are in your best interest.
How Can This Help with Surgery?
Surgery is a stressful event on the body. Preparing the body and mind for surgery will help decrease the anxiety, the need for pain medication and anesthetic drugs during the surgery. Moreover, people who had a session with me before surgery often surprised and delighted their doctors and nurses by how fast they recovered. They were able to go home sooner, eat regular food and return to work sooner.
