Note #1: In my experience, many persons have found the initial hand position and initial startup phrase resolved / relieved distressing emotions, feelings, and thoughts. Even though you may not believe or want to say the positive affirmation of the startup phrase, it is important to do so.
Note #2: Should you find that the symptoms or experience continue for more than 20 minutes, please schedule an appointment. For emergency situations or thoughts of harm to self or others, please call 911.
