NEWS & UPDATES

I am so excited to reopen in August!  I keep smiling when I think about getting back to the treatment room and finding out what you have been up to!  

These past 4 months I’ve been doing what you might expect… working on my own health and personal growth, honing my skills, and aligning the various aspects of my life to support my revamped goals for the future and teaching Touch For Health.

I ventured into working with clients online, and fell in love with Telehealth Sessions:  Read my Article In The Eugene Health Guide!

Our in-Person sessions will include new precautions, and for your safety they may also be accomplished 6-feet apart, without touching. Yes, that is a thing! I am required to incorporate lots of new rules and protocols due to Covid-19, so it is important that you read below to become aware of the changes, before you make an appointment.

For clients who’ve asked how they can continue to be supportive, please consider registering for one of my upcoming classes or purchasing a gift card for a loved one to do so. I am an Instructor for the International Kinesiology College and I am eager to teach everything I know to keep you pain free and healthy. Why not learn how to do what I do, for yourself and your family? Get Started With Classes Here

This is a challenging time for my business, so I thank you for your patience throughout the closure, and during my reopening.

Thank you. Sara

More About Sessions – Q&A

Energy Kinesiology sessions are remarkably effective in clearing stress of all kinds. Even though I don’t know what results you’ll get, here’s what you might experience:

  • A boost to your energy levels, vitality, clarity and/or productivity
  • Pain relief, improved mobility and comfort, and physical healing
  • A boost to your mood and mental outlook
  • A sense of inner peace or inspiration
  • New awareness around an area of your life that matters to you
  • An ease or calmness to how you respond to something stressful (a diffused stress response)
  • A sense of release or relief from whatever is weighing you down
  • New awareness of your ability to correct your own imbalances with your own hands
  • A sense of empowerment that you can impact your health from home

You’ll want to be well hydrated, and to think about what you’d like the focus of your session to be. We can do a generic session to help you feel better overall, or we can balance for something specific. These questions can help narrow it down:

  • What can be better?
  • How do you want to feel, that you are not feeling right now?
  • Is there something challenging, a problem, or a goal you want to achieve?
  • What is causing you stress, and how would you like to respond differently?

For a Telehealth session, download the Zoom app.  Set up your phone or computer in an area where I can see you, and you can move around a little bit. 

Sessions are holistic, meaning we do not focus on treating any symptoms, we focus on you as a whole person in the context of your life.  The techniques that are used are based primarily in Touch For Health, Energy Kinesiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine. 

Using interactive bodywork in this holistic model, we can diffuse the stress that is causing you to go out of balance. The process boosts your immune system, resets your posture, balances your energy meridians, and your mental outlook. The balancing of all of your systems as a whole, is what gets you to a more homeostatic state and diffuses stress, promoting healing to occur.

Usually we’ll have a brief conversation about what you want out of the session. We will pre-asses how you are doing before we begin. I may ask you to rate things like your physical pain, emotional stress, how well you are sleeping lately, your energy levels, etc.

Then, I’ll walk you through simple movements that allow us to assess the performance of various muscles/meridians/organ systems. If any movements are deficient (usually these have some discomfort, limited range, etc) I will provide you with the appropriate correction to apply, in order to get it back to feeling good.  We will do a series of checking, correcting, and re-checking those movements.

In-person sessions may include manual therapy, depending on your needs and comfort level.

At the end we will do a post-assessment to note the positive improvements.

We will do muscle movements representing the meridians/organs of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

For example, you will lift your arm forward, protract your scapula (shoulder blade), and move your arm up and down as if you were shaking hands with a giant. This tests Serratus Anterior muscle and Lung Meridian.

Weakness makes it difficult to push things forward with the arms straight, causing the shoulder blades to wing out in back. This muscle needs to be functioning fully for ideal breathing and activities that require good breath control. Sometimes if both sides are weak it may be due to stiffness in the lower bones in the neck, or it may be due to the fact that the stress in your life is causing you to “lose your voice” literally or figuratively.

We can balance the muscle/meridian by applying a correction. I’ll walk you through that part! These are simple techniques, such as rubbing a neurolymphatic point (a certain spot on your body).  Applying the correction makes the movement feel easier, and it balances the meridian/organ.

You can balance for any type of stress (or goal you want to achieve) past, present or future. What can be better in your life?  

Examples of things you might balance for:

  • Something Physical
        • Relieve the tension in your neck and shoulders, back pain, headache, boost your immune system, breathe easier, etc.
  • A Goal You Want To Achieve/Something Challenging You Want To Feel Easier
        • Feel safe and at ease when grocery shopping, Communicate with spouse better, Speak easily in front of a group or on camera, Be motivated to take care of your health and fitness once and for all, Clear the clutter overwhelming your garage, Find a new hobby that fills your soul, etc.
  • Diffuse A Stressor/Trigger
        • Go Costco without being annoyed by other shoppers, No longer feel triggered by the sounds your spouse makes while eating, Release the emotions that arise when you think about something in your past, etc.

In-Person Sessions:

    • $125 for 90min
    • $145 for 2hrs

      Prices reflect a $35 discount for paying at time of service.

      If your are billing insurance for a MVA or Worker’s Comp Claim, sessions are $140 per hour and usually limited to 60min. session length per appointment depending on your claim.

    • $105 for 90min

The easiest way to pay for your session is to buy yourself a gift certificate. How sweet!

Yes I take insurance for In-Person sessions.  Clients must get pre-authorized to bill insurance by filling out this form.

The insurance pre-authorization process usually takes 3 days, and you will get an email with the results including your coverage, copay, etc.  Once approved you can schedule your appointment.

I cannot bill insurance for Telehealth sessions.

Healing should be fun. If it’s not, you’re doing it wrong.

My tagline is, “Slay Your Stress Patterns, and have fun doing it!” 

I am quick to laugh and I want to enjoy the balancing process with you. Even if you want to  “go deep fast” or tackle a big problem, infusing some fun into our session can be very balancing.

Most people say they have a good time and are surprised how enjoyable the process can be to overcome their stress. That’s part of the magic. 

Covid-19 Updates – Q&A

For safety and to maintain compliance with state, government and insurance requirements for my professional licenses, I must follow specific mandated guidelines regarding Covid-19 for in-person sessions.

Yes. I will send you a form that you must fill out and return to me via email before EACH appointment. This form asks questions like, “Have you had a fever lately” and “Have you traveled recently?” and asks for your informed consent for treatment.  Here is the form: COVID-19 FORM

I am required to ask you the same survey questions again in person, and fill out an additional compliance form at the time of your appointment.

In accordance with extended shelter-in-place recommendations to protect more vulnerable populations, I am not working with clients with compromised immune systems, clients aged 65 or above, or clients in other elevated at-risk categories such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, risk of blood clotting and suppressed immune systems at this time.

Yes. Right now we are both required to wear a mask even if your session does not include manual therapy.

Please bring your own mask.
Disposable masks will be available if you forget.

Yes. I can still provide manual therapy during in-person sessions.

If you prefer, however, we can do the entire session without touch and maintaining social distance. 

You may be interested in experiencing how this works no matter what!

Yes. I have a no-touch  thermometer that takes a reading from your forehead. I am required to record your temperature for each session.

You will see a Green square on my door (210 B Pearl Street) when it is appropriate to come in to the treatment room. If you don’t see that, please wait in your car or outside. I will not be using the lobby. 

Sessions must end promptly so I may have the time to carry out the additional paperwork and cleaning protocols. You will notice that I will wrap up the session earlier and I am asking for your help to make transition times efficient.

For this initial re-opening in July, I have opened my schedule for 3 weeks only, on a trial basis, with limited daily appointments. 

I am not sure when I will open my schedule full-time and long-term at which point you will be able to book recurring appointments.

Due to COVID-19, I have modified my cancellation policy to offer greater flexibility to all clients. I hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, I understand and request for you to please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule. There will be no penalties for cancellations.
