Who Can Benefit?

- Enhance health and vitality
- Reduce stress
- Boost the immune system
- Relieve headaches & back pain
- Improve circulation & respiratory function
- Alleviate depression and insomnia
- Ease digestive problems & constipation
- Increase flexibility
- Be beneficial for arthritis, asthma, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and a wide variety of other common ailments.
Before Your Session:
- Plan to arrive or settle in a few minutes before the scheduled appointment so the session can begin on time.
- Wear loose comfortable clothing (preferably made with natural materials such as cotton)
- Allow 1-2 hours for digestion prior to your session – you will enjoy the session most if you are neither hungry nor too full.
During Your Session:
- Relax and enjoy!
- Make yourself comfortable.
- Feel free to give feedback and ask for what you need.
- Sensations of warmth/coolness or tingling/numbness are common as your body relaxes, releases tension, and your energy becomes more balanced.
After Your Session:
- Drink plenty of (warm) water to help your system process the changes.
- Plan to relax and spend the rest of the day quietly if possible so you can be aware of and enjoy the effects of the session.
- You may feel energized or you may discover that you need more rest for a few days afterward – both reactions are common.
