Question: With regards to TT, what can we do for pregnant women? How soon can we start? We do the whole body?

From Barbara Janelle M.A.

I have only limited experience using TT with pregnant women. The infant’s field is discernible and very bright, light and effervescent. I’ve found that sensing it elicits a feeling of joy in myself.

My general guidelines for all situations hold for working with pregnant women: work lightly, gently support the flow of energy through the field and know that it will also support the flow through the infant’s field, keep treatments brief and trust the field to take the TT input and use it wisely. A welcoming communication to the spirit of the child is also appropriate.
