1. Individual Therapeutic SHEN sessions
Please Note: The fee for your FIRST session of SHEN Therapy is $150.
Your first session includes a pre-session phone interview and a pre-session review of your paperwork. During your first in-person appointment, we will clarify your history and your goals. You will receive an orientation to SHEN therapy and your first table session. First in-person appointments are 90 minutes, occasionally longer.
Subsequent SHEN Therapy sessions may be scheduled for 60 minutes, 90 minutes, or 2 hours.
One hour $100 90 minutes $150 2 hours + $200+
Additional fees may apply if I am traveling to you.
Also know as the "Hero's Journey," therapeutic SHEN sessions reach deeper than rejuvenation SHEN. Each session of therapeutic SHEN is personalized to your needs. Therapeutic SHEN sessions focus on specific goals such as relieving anxiety or chronic pain, help with grieving, surgery preparation, post surgery recovery, removing blocks to creativity, etc.
The effects of therapeutic SHEN sessions are cumulative. Several SHEN sessions may be needed to reach and release deeply buried material. For some, 1 to 3 sessions will transform the issue, for most, 5 to 10 sessions are generally effective. Those with a long history of severe trauma or abuse will usually find that more sessions are called for.
How often you come for an individual SHEN session will vary, depending on your background, your needs and your goals.
If you are working with an intense challenge, I recommend you start with 2 or 3 sessions a day apart. Then, if needed, come twice more the following week, then once a week or more often, as needed for a total of 6 to 10 sessions. Clients from out of town should consider be a personal intensive (see below).
I have also given single sessions to individuals with amazing results. I've SHENned "ordinary" folk, well-known experts in the health and wellness field and famous spiritual teachers who have had pivotal, transcendent, transformative experiences in their first session.
Full Intensive: A personalized, individual series of at least 8 hours of therapeutic SHEN therapy within a short period of time such as a week or a 3 day weekend.
Mini Intensive: 3 to 5 hours of therapeutic SHEN over a 2 or 3 day period
A SHEN Intensive provides great benefit when you are working with something specific, intense or acute. A SHEN intensive is also an excellent option for those who live too far to commute to my local office for a weekly series of SHEN sessions.
I recommend that the day following your intensive you give yourself a day to relax and integrate your experience, perhaps journal or meditate. There are many pleasurable activities, such as beaches to walk, nature, etc, to enjoy in San Diego's famously lovely weather before returning to your usual schedule.
Fee for Full Intensive: $900, which will include 8 to 10 hours of SHEN Therapy and all SOQi, FIR dome, Chi machine and E-power treatments during the intensive.
Fee for Mini Intensive: $100 per hour, offered for 3 or more hours of therapeutic SHEN received within consecutive 3 days time.
If you choose to receive The Reconnection with your SHEN Intensive, I offer $150 off the Full SHEN Intensive, a total of $1033 for both. With a Mini Intensive, $5 off per hour or $25 off the Intensive, whichever is greater. The Reconnection given by itself (universal fixed fee) is $333. Reconnection information

These sessions focuses on relaxing and de-stressing you, and are about 45 minutes of table time. They are deliciously restorative, and relieve ordinary fatigue and jet-lag. I may include flows that promote grounding and centering.
Relaxation/Rejuvenation SHEN sessions have been known to transport you to a heavenly calm and experience of well being that's been described as “blissful.”
