(In-person or Online)
My goal is that you fully experience
rest and haven working with me.
Though I am here to guide structural correction and provide safe and helpful touch, please remember that you are in control.
Recognize that there really are two kinds of pain: “Good pain” and “bad pain”.
“Bad pain” makes you tense, want to pull away or run away. “Good pain” is the pain or discomfort that indicates that we are working in the right area. This discomfort is mild, manageable and “hurts so good” – we will call it “work”. It is also the controllable, quickly resolving soreness that comes from getting stronger. Sometimes you will appreciate this mild, therapeutic “work”, but at other times, you will want to be comforted and refreshed. Both rest and work are important aspects of physical therapy. It is important to let me know how you are feeling and what would be most helpful.
You are safe with me.
You may talk about whatever you want, or not talk at all. I am very comfortable with both.
You may say “STOP” at any time, even if you don’t know what is making you feel uneasy. We will practice both “STOP” and “START” because they are very important in experiencing your voice and your choice and in feeling respected. What you share verbally or clinically will be held in confidence. If you have signed a release of information to specific clinicians, any questions will come to you. Any testimonies or reviews you see on my website are granted by permission.
If you feel uncomfortable in any way, please let me know so we can care for your specific needs and condition. You have many options available: I will ask you periodically how you are and I encourage you to share anything that will help me to do the best for you.
Thank you for the privilege of working with you to be the best you can be.
