Your energy session will take place in a private office that is warm and comfortable.
You will be completely clothed for the session.
Muscle response testing or “energy testing” will be used to assess energy flow. This consists of having your arm or other muscles lightly pushed while you offer resistance. Simple exercises and postures will be taught to balance energy. The practitioner will lightly hold acupressure points. Chakra balancing and other balancing is often done off the body.
Prior to the session, feel free to ask the practitioner any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the session, make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). During most of the assessment you will be standing. During the balancing you will be on a massage table. Most people just close their eyes and relax. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during an energy session, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your session.
“Surrogate testing” can allow an individual to be tested who isn’t able to offer resistance during energy testing. If someone is too sick or weak to use her or his own strength or is too young to follow instructions, a surrogate can be used to get valid information.
During a TFT or EFT session the individual focuses on an emotional problem, measures the intensity of the problem and then taps on specific acupuncture points while saying a reminder phrase. This process is repeated until the intensity level drops to a low number.
