Good responses to look for during a session: 

  • Yawning, breathing deeply, sighing
  • Desire to close eyes
  • Falling asleep
  • Letting go, feeling relaxed, calm, still, centered, “in the zone”, grounded (this is a great response for people who are constantly rushed, late, or on the go)
  • Warmth, improved circulation, light tingles of energy, heaviness 
  • Belly rumbling
  • Losing sense of time (feeling like you got three hours of rest in just 20 mins)
