With the relaxation of most of the rules relating to complementary therapies (at the moment there remain restrictions about treatments on the face) many people may be considering visiting their therapist to catch up on missed treatments.
Receiving a hands-on treatment is likely, however, to be a very different experience post-lockdown. The treatment session may have to be shorter, it will involve health checks both before and at the time of the treatment, and it will involve the therapist wearing PPE and the client possibly having to wear a face mask, all of which may affect the overall experience.
It seems inevitable that the choice of whether or not to have a hands-on treatment will be down to the level of risk which each individual and therapist is prepared to take, and whether they will feel comfortable and able to relax (which is at the centre of many therapies).
There will certainly be those who are vulnerable, for whom a hands-on treatment will simply not be appropriate. There will no doubt be others who may feel uncomfortable with the prospect of a hands-on treatment, and who simply decide to wait and see what happens as the lockdown restrictions ease.
During lockdown I have been giving distance treatments to my Bowen and Reiki clients, which has been well-received (even among those who were, at first, sceptical). Details of the healing offered are available on my website together with some client feedback.
For those that remain sceptical, and are perhaps reluctant to try out distance healing, I have put together some information in the attached article, with some ideas about recent scientific research, together with information about spiritual and esoteric teachings on healing.
If you would like to discuss this, or would like to try a distance treatment, please do get in touch.
