On arriving for our first session I will ask you to complete a health questionnaire and I will explain how the session will unroll. (On any subsequent visits, we will simply go over what has happened since the last session.) Once this is done, you need only remove your shoes and socks, lie down on the massage table and relax into the treatment.
An acupressure treatment usually begins with some relaxation techniques (usually to unblock any energy that might be stuck in the shoulder/neck area) and often I will ask you about the sensitivity (or not) of some key acupoints. After this, a series of acupoints will be pressed on one side of the body (starting on the left side for men and on the right for women) and then (usually and for the most part) mirrored on the opposite side. Most sessions end with some grounding and centering techniques.
Afterwards we will discuss the session, plan for a next one if that turns out to be in the ether and settle the payment if this hasn't already been done.
After our appointment I will document anything that came up during the treatment -- areas of sensitivity, conditions, changes during the session -- while your well-being continues its course.
Whether or not you book an appointment, your well-being has already begun given that you are considering a moment of care for yourself. And, if you do book an appointment, I focus on your well-being throughout the session while post session, the effects of the acupressure ensure that this well-being continues.
