We will begin our session by sitting and discussing briefly your health history, long-term health goals, and exploring how you are feeling today. Before getting onto the table we might do a short sensing exercise together to help feel into our body sensations. This can help the work on the table to be faster integrated and more effective.
You will get onto the massage table fully clothed and we will take some time to make you comfortable. Using pillows and adjusting the temperature to your comfort level all supports your nervous system to being to relax. Before coming into contact with you I will always take your permission and wait until you feel ready.
Thorough the sessions I will listen to your body’s subtle rhythms of health by holding different areas like your feet, shoulders, sacrum, neck or head.
Total session time is between 45-60 minutes, most people are amazed how differently they experience each session from the one before.
The most common experiences on the table include:
- Falling asleep and snoring
- Feeling a deep sense of relaxation
- A sense of floating, expanding, having more space
- Feeling lighter, quieter
- Insights or memories my come to your mind
As the body begins to relax and self-regulate, it may rid itself of constriction patterns, which you may or may not notice, if you do, you can support this letting go by focusing on your breath and giving your body permission to just be present with the moment.
We take time at the end to check in how you are feeling.
Many people feel dramatic results with one session, others notice subtle changes that occur. Supporting you to reach your long-term health goals will take a series of sessions; each one allows your system to go deeper and deeper into reorientation and healing.
The work begins on the table but it continues over the next 24 – 48 hours. I encourage you to keep an open enquiry with yourself: what shifts, how do you sleep, how is your digestion, your interaction with your surroundings? Drinking plenty of water during this period supports the body’s reorientation and self-regulation.
