Sometimes people feel worse after a session. The most likely reason is that the body is processing information and energetic changes. Common responses include a flare up of existing physical symptoms, flu-like symptoms, spots, headaches, smelly sweat, vivid dreams and tiredness. If verbal questioning is being used, the practitioner can establish what can be expected. These symptoms will only last a few days at most. Integrated Healing has specific checks during a session to minimise the occurrence of healing crises.
There is usually a subtle difference between a healing crisis and an exacerbation of symptoms. The client may notice that their appetite is good and that they feel positive in spite of all the symptoms.
