Nature of Treatment

Body work sessions therapeutic touch that involve touch between the therapist and the client. This may also involve physically manipulating the body’s muscular and soft tissue structure to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall health and well-being. These treatments are tailored to meet the individual needs of each client and are conducted by qualified and trained professionals. For the list of body work sessions that fall under this agreement, please see the last part of this page.

Important: FOR FEMALE CLIENTS, IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY IN YOUR PERIOD (MENSTRUATION), IT WILL BE BEST TO WAIT 2 DAYS AFTER IT IS DONE.

Potential Benefits include and not limited to

● Improved mobility and flexibility

● Reduction in pain and discomfort

● Enhanced relaxation and stress reduction

● Improved circulation and recovery

● Lighter emotional state

● Clearer mental state

● Improved quality of sleep

 

Possible Risks and Discomforts

While body work sessions are generally safe, like all therapeutic treatments, they may pose some risks.

Potential risks and discomforts may include, but are not limited to:

● Temporary discomfort during and after treatment

● Very minor bruising

● Allergic reaction to massage oils or lotions

● Muscle soreness or fatigue

● Emotional release and tenderness

● Feelings of fatigue right after the treatment

In rare instances, more serious complications can occur, such as severe muscular injury or nerve compression.

It is important to immediately inform your therapist if you experience any level of discomfort during and after your session.

Important Information Regarding Tailbone/Coccyx Manipulation:

During your treatment, it may be beneficial to address areas such as the tailbone (coccyx) to effectively treat certain conditions like migraines, low energy, or back pain, as manipulating this area can significantly contribute to your overall well-being.

Please be aware that our therapists are trained to perform these techniques safely and effectively.

However, if you prefer that the therapist not work in this area, please express this request directly to your therapist before the start of your session.

We prioritize your comfort and consent in all treatments provided.

 

Translator

Should you wish for a translator to be present during your treatment, please inform us 5 days prior to the treatment date. Note that the translators Maja Healing collaborate with are all female, and they may be present in person or via zoom during your session.  Please know that this option is only possible if the translator is available and comes at a surcharge.

Post-Treatment Information

Though this is a body work session, many times they do involve energy and influence the emotions.

It is important to allow yourself space and time to process the session both consciously and unconsciously on a mental, emotional, and physical level.

Following the session, a typical 2-3 day integration period may occur during which you might experience continued effects of the treatment.

These can include but not limited to:

● Emotional release, such as feeling unexplained emotions, tenderness, or vulnerability.

● Unusual dreams.

● A sensation of feeling flat or empty, and/or unsettled.

● Heightened senses, creativity, joy, etc.

 

Please consider the following during your post integration period:

● It is highly advised to not carry out any intensive exercise routine the same day after a body work session.

● If you have any other body work session planned within 3 days of the session you have booked at Maja Healing with another therapist (at Maja Healing or elsewhere), please consult with the therapist at Maja Healing if this is advisable to keep the upcoming session at Maja Healing or postpone the session following the upcoming session at Maja Healing.

● Drink plenty of water, rest, and practice gentle self-care during this period. It is advised to avoid any alcohol.

● Give yourself 2-3 days to recalibrate before concluding the effects of the session.
