The practitioner will consider your state of health and the symptoms you are experiencing, depending on your constitution and general energy levels, and will use a variety of techniques to improve your energy flow. These may include gentle holding, pressing with palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees, and feet on the meridians, and when appropriate more dynamic rotations and stretches.
Each session lasts about one hour and the treatment is between 35 and 50 minutes. In your first session the practitioner will spend time obtaining information about you in the order to make up a case history. This is a confidential record of your personal details, you will also be asked about your diet, exercise routine and stress.
Once the practitioner has made a composite diagnosis the treatment begins. The treatment takes place on a futon mattress on the floor, if you are unable to lay on the floor the treatment can be given in a chair or on a bed.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing, preferably cotton and loose trousers for the treatment.
It is recommended NOT to eat a heavy meal or drink alcohol before a treatment.
The effect of the treatment may be experienced immediately or several days later and sometimes there may be a temporary healing reaction as toxins and emotions are released in the body.
I will discuss this after each treatment.
