bullte - energy Do you realize?
  • Polarity Therapy, Pain Relief, and Visionary Cranio-Sacral Therapy™ are not massage.
  • The total time for each consultation, depending on your needs, is likely to be 1.5 - 2 hours. First appointments tend to be longer, between 2 - 3 hours.
  • Polarity Therapy, Pain Relief, and Visionary Cranio-Sacral Therapy™ encompass (1) hands-on contacts by the practitioner (while you remain fully clothed), (2) self-awareness, (3) energy based food intake, and (4) energy based movement as recommended by the practitioner from time to time. Sessions will be combinations of these tools, in varying ratios. A typical consultation involves a period of quiet, self -wareness discussion prior to work on the table. However, it is fully possible that a whole session might be e.g. solely a self-awarness discussion.
  • Cranio-Sacral Therapy involves sustained, subtle hands-on contacts on the head, neck, lower back, and other parts of the body as may be necessary.
  • If you are ill, it probably took you a long time to get to this point and it is likely to take a significant period of time, and a genuine commitment on your part to restore yourself and your life. A realistic time frame in which to see genuine and lasting improvement can be as long as a year, depending on the severity of your situation.
  • If you are recovering from an accident or sudden major injury, the therapeutic process could be equally as long. Again, it depends on the severity of your situation.
  • The process is subtle yet profound.
  • You will need to be willing to truly engage with your process and "work", and that these are not passive - subtle, yes, but not passive.
  • Your practitioner can support you by facilitating and walking beside you through your process but cannot DO your process for you.
  • Your practitioner will confine interaction with you to professional practice within the professional boundaries that apply to the practitioner and client interaction? NOTE: The practitioner-client interaction is not the appropriate place for a friendship or similar personal interaction. The purpose of practitioner-client interaction is the client's wellness process and where a client's feelings towards or about the practitioner, or the work being done, are counter-productive to that process, the practitioner is ethically bound to refer the client to another practitioner or method in order to ensure the client's ultimate well being.
  • Your practitioner will encourage you to break patterns that might have held you in "sick-being" and will avoid enabling you to remain stuck in these patterns.
  • Your practitioner will be your supportive ally during your process while also being mindful of preserving your independence and autonomy from him or her.Ideally, the goal is for you to be independently well and able to sustain that.
bullte - energy Are you willing to...
  • Do the "work" that will be part of your process?
  • Make a commitment to your process?
  • Give it time?
  • Orient yourself to well-being rather than "sick-being"?
  • Be honest with yourself?
  • Be gentle with yourself?
  • Be open to possibilities that could lead to or enhance your recovery, wellness, and well being?
  • Between consultations, follow through on recommendations made by your practitioner?
  • Keep a wellness and awareness journal or notes? (Sometimes life is too busy, I get it...)
  • Track your adjustments and shifts for feed-back discussion at follow-up consultations?
  • Begin to trust your body systems' innate wisdom?
  • Stick to your process?
  • Respect your own and your practitioner's roles in your process?
  • Keep appointments?
  • Notify 6th Dimension promptly of problems or delays affecting scheduled appointments?

If you answered "yes" to most or all of these questions, begin. Will it be easy? Maybe. Maybe not. It is definitely subtle. Is it simple? Yes. Does simple mean easy? Sometimes. Not necessarily. So... You choose what is right for your life right now. It is up to you what you choose.


bullte - energy CANCELLATION & RESCHEDULING POLICY

Your appointment time has been scheduled just for you so that you can begin your appointment upon arrival rather than spending time in a waiting room, and is organized to ensure that you receive exclusive attention for the full duration of your session.

Last minute cancellations or changes, or failure to keep an appointment affect not only time management at 6th Dimension but also the welfare of others who would have been glad to have your appointment time if it had been available. The ONLY exception is in the case of sudden serious illness or genuine emergency preventing you from keeping your appointment.

All CANCELLATIONS and CHANGES must be made BY PHONE - USA CONTACT, Mon - Fri., 10.00 am - 6.00 pm; voicemail accepted. Calls and voicemails after 6 pm will be considered to be part of the following business day. Changes or cancellations by email will only be accepted if received by this office at least 1 week prior to the scheduled appointment. (If you do not receive acknowledgment of your email notification, please call to ensure it has been received and to avoid rescheduling fees.) Unless notification is received within these time frames, your fees owing will be calculated according to the requirements indicated below.

Ongoing appointments:

Please note the following time limits and charges if you need to reschedule:

  • Notification received by 6th Dimension™ two or more business days (i.e. 48 hours or more) before your scheduled appointment, no charge.
  • Notification less than two business days before (i.e. 24 - 48 hours), half fee.
  • Notification less than one business day (i.e. less than 24 hours), same day, & missed appointments, full fee.
  • Two missed appointments without notification will be assumed to be termination of the therapeutic process by the client.

These fees will be added to the fee for your next appointment, due at that time. Where no subsequent appointments exists, you will be invoiced.

First appointment:

  • To confirm your first appointment: an electronic invoice will be issued to you for prepayment of your first appointment. That prepayment confirms your appointment. The balance owing for any additional time beyond the first two hours will be due at the conclusion of your first appointment.
  • Changes or cancellation must be received a minimum 3 business days prior to your appointment day if you wish to receive a refund of your prepayment.
  • If you miss your first appointment without notifying 6th Dimension™, others could have benefitted from the time held for you so your pre-payment will be applied to the time scheduled for you as though you had attended.
  • One re-scheduling of a first appointment will be accepted.
  • If an initial appointment is rescheduled then missed a second time, it will be assumed that you do not wish to receive therapy services at 6th Dimension™ and no subsequent sessions will be scheduled.


bullte - energy PAYMENT

Check, cash, money order, or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, & Discover). Information about fees will be emailed to you when you schedule your first appointment.

Ongoing Therapy clients, payment is due at the time of consultation.

New Therapy clients, an invoice for the first two hours of your first appointment will be emailed to you - payable online or by check mailed to our post office box. Payment must be received a minimum of three business days prior to your appointment.

New Clients, please also note: The "deposit" is in order to cover the pre-allocation of time for you. When you set your first appointment, a 3 hour time slot will be set aside EXCLUSIVELY FOR YOU. Your appointment will probably take 2 - 2.5 hrs max, but we schedule that extra hour in case important health matters come up during your first visit. If you must cancel or reschedule your appointment, that entire time has been held for you and your minimum first appointment fee for the first two hours is due according to the cancellation policy above. Because your appointment time is held EXCLUSIVELY FOR YOU, if you simply don't show up, others have missed out on time with the practitioner, the practitioner has set aside the minimum three hours, and there isn't a waiting room full of patients who can be called in instead of you, so except in the case of genuine emergency, 6th Dimension™ policy is to retain the deposit and reschedule only according to the rescheduling policy outlilned above.
