There is no rush to shake away your tensions, stresses, anxieties, traumas, suppressed emotions, etc. It is more sustainable and beneficial to have a regular practice that is shorter, consistent and allows sufficient integration between sessions rather than trying to shake it all out in one session. In our Shaking Medicine classes, you should always empower yourself to rest and modify as much as you need because you know your body better than anyone.
Some reasons to be cautious when choosing to practice Shaking Medicine may be severe physical injuries, recent surgery, broken bones, pregnancy, significant mental health ailments, major medical conditions, PTSD, extreme or complex trauma, being easily overwhelmed emotionally, panic attacks or medical conditions that involve non-therapeutic tremoring like epilepsy, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.
To be cautious here doesn’t necessarily mean to not practice Shaking Medicine for these reasons but rather to be sure to do your due diligence. If any of the above apply to you or you are concerned in any way about if Shaking Medicine is right for you feel free to contact us before joining.
