New clients: Please print & fill out this intake form or arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment to fill it out at the Yoga Pearl front desk.

 

A session usually begins with an intake about your current condition, health concerns, life situations and your intention for the session.

Therapy is performed on a person fully clothed. Please bring or wear comfortable and loose fitting clothes.

The treatment portion begins with a hands-on physical assessment by determining the primary cause for the present symptoms. These can be in various parts of the body such as jointsmusclesinternal organs (heart, lungs, colon, stomach, liver, pancreas, kidneys, etc.), connective tissue (fascia) or the craniosacral system. Restrictions are treated with a wide range of different types of gentle release techniques.

A session is scheduled for one hour. Occasionally it happens that the body signals shorter time for a session.

 

After an appointment clients have been experiencing the following:

  • Decrease in pain level
  • Feel clearer in their mind and emotionally stable
  • Stand straighter and taller
  • Feel more comfortable in their body
  • Feel deeply relaxed
  • Taking deeper breaths

 

The nature, severity and length of time of health concerns, along with the body’s inherent vitality establish the frequency and time of treatments. The time in between treatments is usually around one to two weeks.

Most of the time a lot of change occurs between treatments. It is important to give the body time to come to a new balance in between treatments.

Each patients experience is unique. Some sense a gentle touch, while others feel their body change immediately. Please try to allow yourself time to rest and explore after treatments. Some conditions may respond immediately while others will require a series of treatments.

A commitment to about 5-8 treatments is typically recommended. Ideally, by then, the main reason for seeking treatment should show an improvement. Sometimes, another issue that seemed secondary is resolved before the chief complaint is resolved.

According to a treatment plan that we will develop together, clients choose to come on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis as needed, to maintain and support their current level of health, as well as addressing imbalances, stresses and injuries that may arise.
