Each point should be held for 30-60 seconds and you can repeat the sequence or individual points 2-3 times a day when experiencing allergy symptoms.

Hopefully you will all find some useful tools within this presentation and can start eliminating your need to suffer through another allergy season.

Effective listening in th…

Effective listening in therapeutic healing: “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” – Steven Covey.
There are many layers or keys to excellent communication but the most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention……… A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.-Rachel Naomi Remen. Active listening involves giving full attention to the speaker. Listening goes beyond hearing. It can help clients to feel at ease; defuse difficult situations; help a client to relax and heal. After feeling truely heard, a client may breath deeper, sleep better and feel less tension in the body – and this doesn’teven have anything to do with the actual treatment. Bodyworkers, Listen. Listen. Listen. Listen. Listen and Listen some more.
