DO I NEED TO SIGN ANYTHING?
I will ask you to fill out a new client information sheet and sign to say that you agree to have a Sound Healing treatment from me. I will also ask you to sign a consent form which will allow me to securely store this form online.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SOUND HEALING SESSION?
To facilitate a relaxed, you are invited to lie down on the comfortable bedding provided. However, if you would prefer to be seated, that is absolutely fine, just let me know in advance. You are not expected to do anything during the Sound Healing session. Simply bathe in the sound, and allow it to do its work for you on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. You will hear a range of instruments, such as singing bowls, bells, chimes, strings, flutes, and voice. After instruments have stopped, there will be a period of silence before the end of your appointment. If you are having a Tuning session then you will experience one or more tuning forks being placed on various parts of the front and back of your body, as well as, forks being played around your body and by your ears.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER SOUND HEALING?
Sound Therapy treatment has a cumulative effect, and reactions vary with the individual. Afterwards, you may feel relaxed, refreshed and re-energised. It is possible that you will experience a lessening of physical pain, and tension. It is likely that you will feel different in some way. Occasionally, you may feel worse before you feel better. This is quite normal and is a result of the sound triggering a detoxification process. If this happens to you, please drink plenty of water, rest and be kind to yourself.
WILL SOUND HEALING CURE ME OF A SPECIFIC CONDITION?
Sound healers do not diagnose or treat specific conditions and no set outcome can be guaranteed. Rather, we treat the whole person, addressing causes of stress and dis-ease on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Sound Healing is not intended to replace medical advice or treatment. It is recommended that if you are under a physicians care that you inform them before seeking treatment.
