Experiencing a DAT consultation

What to expect when meeting with your practitioner for the first time

During the first appointment the practitioner takes a detailed case history and makes a visual assessment. As the fully clothed client lies in a face-down position on a specially designed bed, the practitioner does a thorough assessment to locate visible areas of tension.

DAT uses the legs to help determine where in the spine the adverse tension is located, but it also uses visual indicators such as muscle tightness to confirm areas of adverse tension.


What to expect from a treatment

Directed Alignment Technique is performed in the following manner:
Based on the findings of the practitioner's assessment, gentle and specific contacts are made along spine.
The tension is then released with gentle but firm pressure. If the stress is long-standing, then more releases will be needed to ensure that the protective layers of muscle can relax back to their normal state.

Some clients experience slight disorientation afterwards, but a short walk around the room soon corrects that feeling.
Upon completion of a course of treatments, negative energy is released and the client experiences the release of pain and discomfort and enjoys a renewed sense of wellness. This, in turn, enables the system to maintain optimum health.

DAT is not a quick fix and most people enjoy regular weekly or monthly treatments to keep their bodies free from accumulated tension.

Although the treatments are painless, some people may feel tender after the first release because different muscles, nerves and or soft-tissues will have been stimulated.
