What is my process?
When people first come to see me, we start by talking. It helps me decide where we need to focus the rest of the initial visit. Occasionally we spend the entire visit talking, more likely I will complete a thorough and subtle physical exam that will let us know how well your systems, organs and glands are functioning. I will pay special attention to structures that seem pertinent. For example, if your complaint is menstrual pain, I will want to check uterine positioning, mobility, size, function. If it sounds like you might have thyroid dysfunction, I will check your thyroid thoroughly for size, texture, nodules or growths and coordination. I like to start treating in the first visit whenever possible.
Usually I start with the physical and mechanical tensions that are preventing healthy movement and function. I often will make suggestions for easy ways to start improving function whether it’s a medicine I concoct or some food you might want to eat more of.
We start drilling down deeper in subsequent visits. Eventually we may start uncovering emotional content in tissues causing restrictions and dysfunction, investigating the emotional regions of the brain, checking for conflicts and energy drainers. Ultimately, we can connect directly with the intelligence of the body to communicate directly, providing gentle nudges to dispel incorrect premises and liberate fixed patterns.
While this is going on I continue to learn about you and your uniqueness. I learn what your body responds to; and to what it doesn’t respond. Ultimately we will see how your symptoms or complaints are the same as your deeper internal, non-physical patterns.
