Choosing the Right Practitioner

Choosing the Right Practitioner

Healing with a therapist is always a two-party contract that depends on:

  1. The intention of the practitioner/therapist
  2. The receptivity of the patient/client

Choosing the Type of Bodywork Most Appropriate for You

  1. The first step is to be clear in your own mind what your goals are. Being aware of your goals will guide you in choosing the type of bodywork that is best for you.
  2. Trust your intuition about who and what is right for you.
  3. Familiarize yourself with different approaches. Read and talk with others.

What results are you seeking?

  • To regain balance and coordination
  • To release muscular tension
  • To relieve pain
  • To restore impaired functions
  • To increase flexibility
  • To decrease stress

Choosing the Appropriate Practitioner/Therapist

  1. Ask if he/she is certified or licensed.
  2. Find someone who has experience with your type of condition.
  3. Trust your intuition.
  4. Get referrals from others you trust.
