Frequently Asked Questions
What happens in the first appointment?
All new clients are requested to fill out the New Client Intake Form and Nutrition Symptom Survey Form. The information provided will allow me to understand your current condition and to address any of your concern(s).
The first visit is 1.5 hours, which includes consultation. Generally we spend half an hour or so discussing your concerns and current condition. The rest of the appointment will be on treatment using the appropriate techniques to balance your body system and addressing the complaint(s).
What is being done in a session?
I use Applied Kinesiology to identify what stresses the body system during the session.
It is a technique commonly known as ‘muscle testing’. It is based on the principle of Traditional Chinese Medicine. When your body is in harmony, the energy flows freely and it makes your body strong. When there is an imbalance, it creates blockage in the system therefore weakened your performance. This technique allows me to identify what upsets your system and what brings it to harmony.
After identifying your stress, I would use the appropriate technique to balance your body system accordingly. The techniques I practice include – Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.), Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Psych K or Shadow Energetics. Instrument from I-Ching System, Source Energy Medicine (SEM) may also be used to help remove harmful energy from your body.
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), your nutrition needs is part of the equation in your healing. I may recommend nutritional supplements to support your body system.
How many sessions do I require?
Since we are all unique and our condition varies. General guideline is 4 consecutive visits – initial appointment and 3 subsequent visits to evaluate the respond from sessions. After which we would determine the frequency of visit required to achieve your wellness goal.
I have heard of wellness care versus crisis care. What is wellness care?
Many times, clients come to seek relief for an acute health or emotional condition. It could be pain resulting from a fall, injury from accidents, flare up of a chronic condition, emotional trauma resulting from sudden loss of a love one or family crisis…
Once we addressed the crisis and the ‘storm’ calms down, we would look into wellness care. Wellness care is about preventing dis-ease in the body rather than waiting for the daily stress to build up and symptoms to occur. Its primary focus is on removing ‘hidden’ stresses, strengthening your body, maintaining your body and mind in a balanced state. It’s a preventative approach.
What does a wellness care program involve?
Frequency of visits will be recommended base on the health condition and goal of each individual client. A special program will be tailored for each client. You will also enjoy special saving when purchasing a wellness package.
Can you help with Chronic Pain?
Your body knows how to heal itself naturally. When your body does not heal, it indicates there is interference preventing your body from doing the repair and regeneration.
Whether you have chronic neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, back pain… any type of chronic condition, I have the techniques and tool to identify and remove the root cause of this interference. You can check out some of the video testimonials on the Testimonial page.
What about Pain Management?
Yes, I can help with pain condition – migraine headache, carpal tunnel syndrome, runner’s knees, sciatica to name a few. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, pain is an indication of blockage within the meridian (energy channels that runs throughout the body). Pain can be eliminated when one removes the blockage within the system. At Tap Into Your Best, we have the techniques and tools to assist your body to return to its natural state. Please visit the Testimonial Page for more details.
Can you help with emotional and mental conditions?
Emotional B.E.S.T. and Thought Field Therapy are two powerful techniques that focus on neutralizing harmful effects of emotional and mental trauma. These techniques have great success with conditions such as depression, panic, anxiety, phobia or addictions. Please feel free to contact me on any particular concern you may have.
I had an accident years ago but I am still troubled by it. Can you help?
Many times, injuries from accident(s) never heal properly because the ‘trauma’ from the experience is still ‘alive’ and ‘locked’ in the subconscious. Since the subconscious mind does not have any concept of time, this traumatic memory is ‘real’ and happening ‘now’. It puts the body in primal defense mode, upsetting the body and preventing total healing to occur.
Emotional B.E.S.T. and Thought Field Therapy are two techniques that can facilitate the releasing of such locked trauma in the body, returning your body and mind to its natural balanced state. Healing will occur when the body is out of defense mode. Physical B.E.S.T. corrects imbalance of the body so healing can take place.
I had unpleasant experiences in the past that I know are affecting my life now. Can your techniques help me?
Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a well-recognized technique for trauma relief. TFT Foundation has been doing humanitarian projects in traumatized regions like Mexico, Israel, Rwanda, Chile and the Congo with great success. Whether you suffered from childhood trauma or violence, TFT can help. Let’s not forget when you come into my office, different techniques and tools will also be used during the session to relief the trauma.
I like to perform better at work, can you help?
Whether you are seeking performance enhancement at work, in sports or for your business… removing subconscious limiting beliefs and blocks are essential. Many times one may unconsciously display self-sabotage behavior, or running limiting beliefs while pursuing a goal. Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, Thought Field Therapy and Psych K are great techniques that could assist in performance enhancement.
Do you work with children?
Yes, I work with children and infants. All the techniques and tools use in the clinic are all gentle and non-invasive. One of the greatest benefits with these techniques doesn’t involve a lot of talking; the client does not need to articulate specific experience in order to be helped. I also practice Family B.E.S.T.; a technique specifically developed for working with infants.
