I took the advanced class a few months back which was about draining / bilateral treatments and working with 2 channels. I haven’t yet come across someone I have wanted to drain but I have been doing a bit of bilateral and 2 channels at once treatments, when I think is necessary.
My observation with 2 channels:
I have a long time patient who is really open to me trying things. She usually always loves LIV+ . She sometimes asks if I can put her in her “calm forest.” Just recently she came in and talked a lot about how she was really struggling with boundaries with people but also feeling overwhelmed and wanted her “calm forest”. I decided to match GB+ and LiV +.
I started with GB+ on the left as it was the wild card and if all was well I would add LiV on right. After 5 min I checked on her. She said she felt ok. Not as settled as she usually does. If it was a different person I might have taken it out and just gone with LIV but she was keen to seeing what would happen by adding the other channel. Once I added LIV it was like it completed something. She fell into a deep sleep and dreamt she was floating on water. It was one of her favourite treatments.
So my experience of this has me wondering how to discern whether to continue to the second channel if after 5 min there isn’t a full settled feeling. If I was treating one channel at a time it seems like I wouldn’t get to GB+. But when matched with LIV it was right. I kind of just went with my gut feeling on it and with comfort of knowing this patient will return even if things went super sideways.
What are others experiences with this?
