What Happens in a Session?
Your first session involves a consultation as well as the energy session itself. You will be asked a series of questions in regards to your physical, mental and emotional situation, and any questions you have will be answered. You will then lie fully clothed on a massage table while the practioner gently places her hands slightly above or on your body. The session generally lasts 40 to 60 minutes. People frequently report feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful during and after the session. There is a cumulative effect of using Healing Touch over time and regular sessions are recommended.
