A written case history is taken to clarify reasons for your visit and to identify previous history that may be influential.
The session typically lasts about an hour and takes place with the client fully clothed. For most sessions the client lies on their back, face up on the treatment couch and the therapist makes contact at various points of the body.
Often initial contact will be made at the feet, followed by work wherever restrictions are present in the body and at the head (cranium) and at the base of the spine (sacrum) where the cerebro spinal fluid within the central nervous system is most accessible.
Individual responses vary widely depending on the individual and the nature and duration of the problems being worked with. Typical in-session responses include muscle twitching and releases, changes to breathing patterns, transitory discomfort at areas within the body where changes are taking place, pins and needles, numbness, emotional releases and a profound sense of relaxation.
