A private session is an opportunity to discover our restrictions and tension patterns. We use our mind’s eye in partnership with me to investigate what the story is that we are containing in our body. If a person shows up with a pain in her shoulder, we address the physical pain, but even as I am working physically on that person, we are asking questions directly to the joint uncovering what is hidden in the memory of our tissue. Often an image will come forth, or a color, and that will guide us more directly to what kind of healing is needed for that part of the body. I like to complete sessions with something active that a person can use either in meditation or movement so that they are the main healer. For some people, what needs to be addressed is muscle weakness or a structural problem, but even in the most concrete situation, there is almost always some deeper level of understanding that we can discover.
How often do I need private sessions?
Although one session can be an excellent diagnostic tool, ideally a student benefits most when they do ten sessions over the course of two months.
