FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions:

 What happens in a Body Talk session?

You’ll be lying comfortably, fully clothed, on a massage table, on your back (if this is not physically possible, a session can also be done sitting). The practitioner (Paul) will be touching your hand and wrist. Through this contact, there is a subtle “biofeedback” technique that allows the practitioner to communicate with your body and obtain a series of yes and no “answers.” In a very real sense, your body reveals to the practitioner where the areas are that need balancing or restoring, and in what sequence. The balancing may involve touching different areas on the body (by you and/or the practitioner) while some tapping is done. Usually the tapping is done gently on the top of the head and over the sternum, or heart center. This is what registers to the brain and communication system that the intended area is in need of balancing. The wisdom of your body’s healing abilities does the rest.

 What should I expect to feel?

Most clients report that the session itself is quite relaxing. Sometimes people feel some sensation of an energy shift. Sometimes emotions may come to the surface. There may be other sensations that arise. Or, you may not feel much of anything. The session will still be beneficial.

 What kind of results can I expect?

Most people will feel an increased sense of relaxation, groundedness, or well being at the end of a session. It may take awhile for the body to process what transpired in the session, and specific results are difficult to predict. It will depend on what kind of problems you came to the session with, and what areas were addressed in the session. The results may be subtle, or quite dramatic. Every session is different.

 Can it address my specific problem?

One of the important aspects of Body Talk is that it addresses what your body reveals to be the priority to deal with at that moment. If, for example, you come in with knee pain as an important complaint, it’s likely that this will come up at some point. But it may not come up as the first “priority” in a session. It may be that there are other aspects that need to be dealt with first, like peeling away layers of an onion. After some of these layers are dealt with, then it may be that the knee can be dealt with more directly. Or, it may happen that after these other “layers” are dealt with the knee symptoms are now gone!

 How many sessions will I need?

This is completely individual. Typically, we might suggest four to six sessions to begin with. Then your own experience might dictate where we go from there. Some return for a “tune up” session or two periodically. Also, at the end of each session, the practitioner will “ask” the body if further sessions are recommended and how soon. This can be a guide

How do I need to prepare for a session?

Come wearing loose, comfortable clothing. If possible, wear natural fabrics rather than synthetics, and avoid metal jewelry. It is also requested that you avoid wearing any scents in our session space. Otherwise, you don’t really need any other preparing.

Do I need to take any special precautions after a session?

If you have the luxury of having time to just take it easy for awhile after a session, that would be great, but not absolutely necessary. You can go on about your normal day after a session. Drinking extra water after a session is a good idea.

How much does Body Talk cost?

I am happy to offer an introductory session for new clients at no cost, to allow you to experience what it is like, at no risk. Subsequent sessions, if you chose to continue, are $75 per session.
