What to expect
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior to the session, I’ll send you an email with a link to some intake forms to complete in advance. I'll also send you a text on the day of with specific directions to the entrance of my office. (This information is also noted on my Contact page.) While masks are no longer required, I am happy to wear a mask if you would like; I'll check in at the beginning of our session re: your preference, or you may let me know in advance.
For teens and adults: During a session, we’ll spend a little time talking about why you are seeking care, followed by a brief standing assessment. This gives me some good ideas about the best ways to support you. While I do offer full body sessions, most of the time my sessions are geared toward problem solving, be it relieving pain, supporting more general mobility and ease or supporting your autonomic nervous system.
I want you to feel at ease. Your session can be clothed, and I have a variety of options for positioning on the table or off to help if lying face down or on your back is not comfortable. My table can accommodate larger bodies, and I have bolsters and pillows we can use for support. While I generally do not talk much in session, I may ask questions as the session progresses, and you are welcome to do so, too. I also may send you home with some ideas for ways to support our work in session in the weeks to come.
For infants and young children: These sessions are flexible, with time for snacks, soothing and changing, as needed. Infants are often treated while being held or in close proximity to a caregiver. Children can move and play; please feel free to bring a favorite toy. I follow their lead through the course of the session, and work with their movements to promote change.
