Resociative Medicine works the whole system. So just as you would prepare for a big physical work-out or a medical/surgical procedure here are some recommendations to help ensure that the process is not only safe but satisfying, and with a rapid recovery time:
1. Make time for the process
If you are new to process work, for maximum benefit and minimal ‘neuro-emotional wobbles’/fatigue it is suggested that you don’t have any work planned for the rest of the day after a session. This can help you determine how quickly you ‘reintegrate’.
Similarly it is suggested that you let personal connections in your life know that any potentially challenging conversations are best left until at least a day after a session.
2. Be physically prepared for the process
These suggestions are based on clinical observations of what improves outcomes, assists recovery, and what is being used more in the process. The reccomendations are also supported by the science on the substances used in quantum biological processes.
3. Let your body/subconscious help you with the process
Often people have a concious intention for a session, but Siobhan also encourages clients to be aware of what is ‘coming up’ for them in the days before a session. For example there may be physical symptoms, but there could equally be memories or a poster/phrase or song reverberating. In Resociative Medicine there is no such thing as something which you are, ‘not sure if it’s worth mentioning’.
4. Other modalities around the time of a session
It's fine to attend bodywork etc. appointments in the day or so following a Resoicative Medicine session as long as the practitioner is already known to you and that the modality works with the body rather than imposes upon it (i.e no ice-baths etc.).
Things to be aware of prior to engaging in Resociative Medicine
If you are regularly seeing other clinicians (medical or otherwise) for a condition that you would like to address with Resociative Medicine, please let them know that you are doing this. Also Siobhan is happy to work with clients taking most classes of medication (including cannabis) but requests that anyone on regular benzodiazepines (for example diaepam, or temazepam) wean off from these prior to commencing therapy.
