Before we examine what happens after a session, let’s look briefly at what happens during a healing session with Josh. Modalities like Accunect, BodyTalk, and Craniosacral Fascia Therapy are used to achieve optimal balancing of the whole body/mind complex. Most clients experience deep and profound rest and relaxation. The whole body calms down and goes into healing mode. The nervous system begins to operate at a wavelength similar to sleep. This is how everyone’s body heals naturally, it must first slow down and relax. While the body is deeply relaxed, Josh is utilizing techniques that promote wellbeing and strengthen communication pathways in the body. This process is tailored to the client’s specific needs at the time.
Clients leave Josh’s office feeling refreshed right down to the cellular level and ready to take on life in a more efficient and healthy way. It then becomes easier for clients to take responsibility for changing any lifestyle patterns that may be hindering their continued growth and healing. For the rest of the day, or the next few days, or even over the course of a couple of weeks, the impacts of the session may continue to be felt. Clients report a range of experiences- from the continued overall relaxation to profound “aha” moments of recognition that life is improving on all levels (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually). The experience someone has can be subtle or completely obvious. Sometimes life just feels like it has an easier flow to it and sometimes the client feels a huge transformation. While often times pain relief and other shifts are immediate, sometimes it takes a few hours or even days for the body to fully process the session and symptoms may intensify before resolving. For example, a fever may spike and then break, inflammation swells and then goes down, or fascia continues to unwind and release tension when the client goes to bed. How can a client better understand this phenomenon? Some of the factors in the body processing after a session include how deeply seated the imbalances are, what is ready to shift, sensitivity of the client, and environmental factors in the client’s home and personal life.
