Where will my Healing Touch or bodywork session take place?
Your Healing Touch or bodywork session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.

Must I be completely undressed? 
During Healing Touch, generally only the shoes are removed for comfort. During a Raindrop Treatment you are asked to remove clothing from the waist up, but you will be properly draped during the entire session.

Will the practitioner be present when I disrobe?
The practitioner will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or blanket.

Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.

What parts of my body will be touched?
Healing Touch is only a light gentle touch on various areas of the body along the joints and specific energy centers, but never on any intimate areas. There is also some hands off the body. The client can request hands off the body for the entire session if it is desired. During Raindrop Treatments, oils are applied to the feet and back using light strokes and some hands-on. 

What will the Healing Touch or bodywork feel like?                                                                                                                                                             Energy healing is very relaxing. Everyone's experience is unique but generally it is reported that the client may feel a deep warmth and expansive sensation, like floating on a cloud. There may be some tingling, coolness or heat as the practitioner holds different areas or moves through the energy field. Some people fall asleep or they may not notice anything in particular, other than simply being relaxed as the mind clams and tension rolls away. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken. Healing Touch and bodywork are most effective when the mind is open and receptive and your body is not resisting.

Are there different kinds of energy healing and bodywork? 
 There are many different types of energy healing besides Healing Touch such as Reiki, and Therapeutic Touch. Reiki is another form of energy healing offered in this practice that comes from a different tradition and culture, but most people find that it feels very much the same as Healing Touch except for a difference in hand positions. Raindrop Treatment is a combination of Aromatherapy and bodywork.

What should I do during the Healing Touch or bodywork session?
Prior to the session, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the session, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they have any questions or concerns, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.

How will I feel after the Healing Touch or bodywork session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience an acceleration of healing and freedom from pain developed from stress/tension or a particular health condition.  People often experience an overall sense of well-being, increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins may be released it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your session.

What are the benefits of Healing Touch and bodywork? 
Healing Touch and bodywork can help relieve pain, improve circulation, reduce chronic headaches and migraines, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of any medical condition, help with heart conditions, reduce blood pressure, and relieve the side affects from cancer treaments. Healing Touch and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage or bodywork inadvisable?
Yes. That's why it's imperative that, before you begin your session, the practitioner asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the practitioner of any health problems or medications you are taking.
