“Jackie has helped me tremendously to prepare for arthroscopic surgery on my hip that has been under constant pressure of many years of competitive tennis. She helped to address dis-balances in my whole body and mentally prepare me for the surgery. I appreciate her genuine willingness to help, professional attitude and always being available to answer my questions. Her help not only prepared me for the surgery, but also helped me to recover after as my body and my mind were in the right state. This picture was taken on the beaches of North Carolina of me camping a few months after surgery.”
Policies and Fees
Always check with your primary healthcare physician before trying a new therapy.
It is your choice, as a client, to receive Movement/Bodywork Therapy/Education with Jackie Hand.
Jackie makes no claims to heal you or “fix” any medical or emotional condition you may have. She is not licensed to diagnose or prescribe any medical conditions, medicines or diseases, and information contained on the emBodyment-itm.com website is not intended to be substituted for such.
Movement and Bodywork therapy as described here are for the purpose of body/mind/movement awareness and integration, stress reduction, relief from muscular tension or spasm, and for increasing co-ordination, fluid circulation and energy flow. If you experience any pain or discomfort during the session, immediately inform Jackie so that position, strokes or movement may be adjusted to your level of comfort.
Bodyworkers, massage therapists and movement analysts do not diagnose illness, disease or any other physical or mental disorder; nor do we prescribe medical treatment of any kind. Nothing said in the course of a session should be considered as such. Movement exercises, bodywork and massage are not substitutes for medical examination, diagnosis or treatment, and it is recommended that you see a physician for these services.
Jackie requires that all clients sign and date a Consent Form before an initial movement or bodywork session.
Because massage/bodywork or some movements should not be performed under certain medical conditions, state all your known medical conditions on the form and answer all questions honestly. Be responsible to keep Jackie updated on your health and well being. There shall be no liability on her part should you fail to do so.
