While some kinds of massage really do require physical contact, other forms of bodywork do not. Helen has taken multiple intensive courses on doing distance work, and will be happy to work with you with whatever form of bodywork will benefit you most One benefit of distance work is that you do not have to get up from the table and run off into the world right away. Instead, you can remain in peaceful meditation or relaxation to really allow the changes to settle into your body.
Distance sessions tend to include more dialoging than do face to face sessions, as Helen will take the time to make sure that you and she are working toward the sam goal, and that she is in tune with what you're experiencing. For a distance session, you will book your session on line at a specific time, just as you would any other session. At the appointed time, you will find a quiet, relaxing place to be during the appointed time - lying down may be optimal, but is not required if a comfortable chair is preferable to you. At the beginning of the session, you will connect via telephone, Skype , Zoom, or FaceTime, to determine what you most need or want to focus on, and the entire session's time will be devoted to that work.
Once we have determined the focus of the session, you can settle into your relaxed position, and close your eyes to receive the work. Helen will work with you much the same way that she would were you in her office, but she will spend more time telling you what she is doing, and confirming your experience by asking what you are experiencing when she notices shifts and changes herself. Distance sessions can often accomplish more in a shorter period of time, so Helen will not be offering extended two-hour sessions until you and she have determined that they are truly needed.
Each session will include an opportunity to confirm resources that you have available to you to support the work you're doing, and may include a short meditation that you will be able to use on your own to help you maintain equilibrium.
