HOW TO PREPARE FOR A SLŌ SESSION
Please arrive on time to ensure the full length of your appointment.
Please refrain from using lotion the day of your appointment to ensure optimal skin contact. This includes sunscreen and facial moisturizer.
Please wear exercise clothes (or bring them and change at our office), such as a sports bra and running shorts. Also suitable would be 2 piece bathing suits for women, or boxers, briefs or swim-trunks for men. SLŌ body-work must occur directly on the skin for best results— your safety and comfort are always respected.
Hydrated tissue ensures optimal results from your bodywork — please arrive hydrated!
- Be sure to drink plenty of water after the session to help rehydrate the released fascia, for more effective results.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A SLŌ BODY-WORK SESSION
SLŌ body-work is non-injurious. At no point should you ever experience pain. Moments of "therapeutic discomfort" may be required for some releases.
The work is done free of lubricants or oils providing a deeper reach into fascia.
There is no need to fully disrobe, though appropriate sportswear is preferred (see "how to prepare for your session").
Expect for yourself to naturally move into a deeper mind-body connection and enhanced connection to your own breath.
You will receive a full 60 minutes "on the table". Any communications will be built around that time.
Individuals can feel a range of emotions post-session: anything from deeply relaxed to fully energized.
A small percentage of clients have felt soreness the next day. An even smaller percentage can have the body shift into "therapeutic chaos". These usually only last a day or two. In fact, they are working signs that the body is moving into a more balanced and harmonious state.
Expect to be empowered with information and proactive "homework" that will expediate the positive shifts that we are looking to affect.
