In a first session there is a detailed discussion around your history and what brings you to seek treatment. You will then lie clothed on a treatment couch and I will gently use my hands with a light contact to begin to feel how your body is under the surface, how the tissues, muscles, bones, organs and nervous system etc are working in different areas of the body alongside the subtle energetic quality of the Primary Respiration. This generally feels very relaxing and may be felt as heat, sometimes tingling, everyone’s experience is unique.
There are no manipulations or adjustments although sometimes the body does adjust itself and comes into a better alignment. Also sometimes and with permission I may bring in some Feldenkrais gentle movement if needed. During a session you do not need to do social chitchat or explore the events that brought you in but to settle deeply into yourself as far as that is possible. I may ask you to describe some of the sensations that arise in your body or to notice particular areas. Some sessions are very quiet.
