DISTANCE SOUND HEALING INFORMATION

HOW DO DISTANCE TREATMENTS WORK?

As with all healing, distance healing works by intention. I do not need to see you to be able to tune into you and do you not need to see or hear me to be able to receive the sounds that I send.

We will have a conversation before the treatment to talk about your intentions for the session, answer any questions you have and determine the right treatment for you. Ideally, this conversation will take place just before the session via a video platform or telephone, but it can also take place any time in the preceding 48 hours via email. It is good if you have a means of sending me a message during the session, if necessary, and that we are able to converse again after the session to check how you are. But if this is not feasible for lack of internet connection, or any other reason, we can still go ahead with distance healing as there are other safeguards we can put in place.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?

One of the advantages of distance healing is that it can take place anywhere at all. This is great for clients who cannot get to my studio but also cannot attend online healing sessions because they do not have internet access or because they are adversely affected by electromagnetic devices. It is also means that you can have total privacy when receiving the healing. Some clients choose distance healing so that they can go to a special place in nature for their session; please, however, be absolutely certain that it is completely safe.

You are invited to prepare your space so that you are as comfortable as possible: have something to lie on, or a comfortable chair, mat or cushion to sit on. Have blankets, pillows, extra clothes and eye mask available, as appropriate. Have some bottled or covered water available. Please avoid a heavy meal and alcohol beforehand.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SESSION?

You are not expected to do anything during the session. You may or may not feel physical or emotional reactions to the treatment, but it will be working either way.

HOW LONG WIll my SESSION BE?

A typical session lasts for approximately an hour, depending on how much pre-treatment discussion is needed. Ideally, please schedule an hour and a half in total, to allow for recovery/processing time after the session, if needed. If you have less time than this, please let me know at the start of the session.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY SESSION?

Afterwards, you may feel relaxed, refreshed and re-energised. It is possible that you will experience a lessening of physical pain and tension, or you may receive insights into things that are concerning you. It is likely that you will feel different in some way. Occasionally, you may feel worse before you feel better. This is quite normal and it is actually desirable, because it is a result of the sound triggering a detoxification process. It will only be temporary. If this happens to you, please drink plenty of water, rest and be kind to yourself. You are welcome to contact me if you would like to discuss your reaction to the sound healing treatment.

WILL SOUND HEALING CURE ME OF A SPECIFIC CONDITION?

Sound healers do not diagnose or treat specific conditions and no set outcome can be guaranteed. Rather, we treat the whole person, addressing causes of dis-ease on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

Sound healing is not intended to replace medical advice or treatment.

ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS?

If you have any of the following conditions, please mention this at the time of booking. We can then discuss what form of treatment would be appropriate for you:

Ménière’s Disease, Tinnitus, Hyperacusis (Sensitivity to Sound), Epilepsy, Psychosis, Osteoporosis, Cancer, Acute Injury/Internal Bleeding, Stroke, Thrombosis, Hepatitis, Asthma, Diabetes, Heart Disease, High or Low Blood Pressure.

Please also let me know in advance if you are fitted with a pacemaker or have any metal implants, pins or bindings, if you are taking Warfarin, or if you are or might be pregnant.

If you have recently had surgery, it is advisable to wait for 2-3 months before having sound healing.

If in doubt, please speak to your general or specialist medical practitioner for advice.

DO I NEED TO SIGN ANYTHING?

I will email you a new client information and agreement form and ask you to fill this out and return it to me in advance of your session. I also need to ask you to sign a consent form which will allow me to securely store this form in line with GDPR regulations. For more information see my Privacy Notice.
