Individual sessions are scheduled with a single practitioner or a licensed bodyworker/musician team. Each appointment begins with a verbal check-in to assess physical and emotional changes and needs. Depending on the individuals physical condition and situation, sessions are held either in heart2heartnc’s home office or in private homes. Immediate family members are welcome to be present. Appointments are between 60 to 120 minutes in length and include travel and set-up time. Individual sessions are also for grieving family members that have lost their loved one.
Family and Friend Sessions
These sessions are typically initiated by family and friends at the juncture in which the terminally ill loved one is restricted to their bed. The licensed bodyworker/musician team work with the individual and their close community to structure and design a group session, according to their wishes. This unique opportunity allows everyone to be a part of the healing process through the ritual of community, music, touch and energy work. Appointments are between 60 to 120 minutes in length and include travel and set-up time.
