CST and Treatment Protocols

Post by Gaspen » Thu Apr 24, 2008 3:55 pm

In regular massage sessions, I may need to gently ease away from an area (due to time) but with the plan to return to it if necessary at the next session. Is it safe to do this when using CST?

However, if you 'have to' stop the session in the middle of a release, the Inner Wisdom is very forgiving. Sometimes you can pick up where you left off at the next session. Sometimes the Inner Wisdom finished the process on its own, and the next session you notice the restriction is gone.

Of course. If they walk in, they will walk out. It may agitate them if you leave unfinished, but if you gently ease.....should be fine. Try it on your cat.

Yep. I like trying things on my plants first. They don't have claws.

Not having any experience with CST on the giving end, I know that my learning curve will be forever going forward (as with massage). I'm looking at it as a great learning opportunity.

Thanks, StressSolutions
