Falling Asleep Mid-Session...Is This Normal?
August 21st, 2020
"So what if I fall asleep during a bodywork or energy work session? Does the intent of the session continue to work after one has fallen asleep?"
It is completely normal for one to get so relaxed that they fall asleep during a session! Relaxation is the point of these sessions and I would estimate that about at least 60% or more of the clients that I see fall asleep at some point during a session with me. I see this as a sign from their body that it has entered the activation phase of the parasympathetic nervous system. This is an awesome thing because the body then goes into rest, reset, and "repair/realign/restore/restructure" mode, which is the whole point of having a session done...to feel better and be more relaxed. So in having said that...yes, the bodywork and energy work still continues to "work" or do its thing, even if one falls asleep during their session.
