I started working with a client who is uses Bio-Geometrical Integration in her chiropractic practice. Not sure the full meaning of that, but she works on an energetic level and meets peoples energies on an astral plane (that is how she described it breifly to me when I asked if she feels others energy in her body when adjsuting)
she came to me when she was pregnant two years ago, and she loved working together. she wants to get pregnant agian in june but wants to come into contact with her body first. she is fearful of becoming grounded and fearful of the investigation of being in her body, (she kept trying to get me to go have coffee with her instead!) but she does wants to do it now. She is always in 2,3,4 kosha, but cant stay in 1 too long. She says the only things that ground her are pain and I am not yet clear if adjusting people grounds her or not, she says that is when she feels best. she is also struggling with her weight and her body image. she is on wieghtwatchers now which I think is a bad idea, but I havent any better suggestions for her yet but I think I will recommend Brandts book to her next time she comes.
we worked on wave breath w/yoni mudra. that made her very anxious, so I had her follow energy with hands, then yoni mudra and that was ok. Then we did JFS. Since her anatomy skills are good I asked her to stay with the names and location of the muscles she was feeling. she would get distracted on some moves more then others, and some would bring up painful memories that she shared with me. the wrist moves disconnected her completely, brought up memories, and the shoulder internal and external movements made her very anxious. so we modified to arms straight, rotating at the shoulder. that was ok. Then I had her do virabhadrasana 1, feeling for sensation in the correct muscle groups, then baddha konasana (she said it was one of her favorites) then pidgeon, also one of her favs. We talked about the model of the koshas so she could understand where we wanted to work, 1st kosha, and when she felt she was flying up into 2,3 she shoud bring herself back to 1.
she wants to work with me weekly. I gave her JFS sheet to practice at home during the week. This is a new type of client for me as we are not dealing with pain or ROM or MT. I wondered if you had any feedback or suggestions for me to work more effectively with this lady. SHould I be doing an assessment and giving her work from that, or stay with increasing awareness of anamayakosha?
