What a person experiences after a treatment vaires. Just as our health states vary. Generally eat moderately, stay well hydrated, & avoid over exposure to the elements. Be kind to yourself and give yourself the time and space to process what comes up. Some people can experience strong emotions as they emotionally and physiologically process that which has been "stuck" in their bodies.
If I can't stop my thoughts will meditation still work for me?
Meditation is a journey to bring awareness to your thoughts. The key is not to stop your thoughts but to be aware of how they are affecting your life and how you choose to interact with them. I always say that we are human therefore we have thoughts, if we didn't have them we wouldn't be alive!
