Listening at Distance

As physical touch is becoming increasingly difficult to share, I decided to start offering distance sessions an an alternative to experience from home. 

An experience of a distance session may be quite similar to that of an in-person cranial biodynamics session, but it doesn’t sit well with me to call it “craniosacral therapy” when there’s no touch involved. I often refer to it as “listening” at distance.

Just as in an in-person session, in a distance session, it is the client’s body that is at work. The body has innate wisdom and ability to heal and evolve. The facilitator’s job is to support that innate wisdom by being present and listening.
 
Without the facilitator not being physically in the same space, a distance session might offer the client an opportunity to listen to and feel the wisdom of the body even more clearly and intimately.

How it works

Before the session starts, find a quiet space where you feel safe and can stay uninterrupted during the session. I would recommend turning off the notifications on your phone. Dress comfortably. Relax and wait for the session to begin.

Right before I start, I will send you a message to let you know the beginning of the session. There’s no need for you to respond.

Just like in an in-person session, I do not “do” any energy-sending or fixing but simply listen through frequency to various systems, movements, and flows of and in the body to support the body’s innate healing ability to bring about necessary changes and adjustments.

Turn off the busy-ness in your head and feel what is happening in the body. But don’t “try” to feel anything. If you feel sleepy, it is absolutely okay to fall asleep. Allow what happens to happen. Even if you may not understand what is happening intellectually, the body’s innate intelligence is at work.

The session lasts for about 30 minutes.

At the end of the session, I will send you a message to let you know that it’s finished. There’s no need to respond to the message.

The process that starts in a session often continues after. If you can, give yourself enough time to relax and feel what is happening.


Communication during session

At the moment, I choose not to keep connected through zoom, etc., in the session. I find it tricky to have verbal communication during session without physical touch or eye contact possible and when smooth, interrupted communication is not ensured.

However, I will keep my phone on nearby so you can call or message me anytime if you feel like stopping, have a question, or need to let me know something at any time during the session.

If you feel like sharing right after, too, I will be available to talk on the phone for 30 minutes from the end of the session. 

You can also share your experience with me by email when you feel ready. Some seem to find it useful to reflect on and share the experience after a while, when the process is more integrated. Others don’t feel the need to share. (And both are absolutely okay!)
