What to Expect
What are your hours?Please see https://www.returninghomehealing.com/book-a-session for current availability.
Where is your office?My office is located on the second floor of Mountain Medical Arts. First-floor accessible appointments available by special arrangement. Please park in front or behind the building. Enter by its exterior staircase, and find the second floor waiting room atop the stairs. I will greet you there. I also work remotely and on occasion, from a home office in Celo.
Is your office accessible for those with mobility issues?Though my office is on the second floor of Mountain Medical Arts, with no elevator, I can arrange to see clients also in a first-floor exam room of MMA, in the cottage beside MMA, off-site as a home visit, or remotely via phone, FaceTime, or Zoom. Please contact me in advance with your preference. Too, I hold--for all of us--that who we are is beyond our bodies.
How early should I arrive?If working in person and as a new client, please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to allow time to complete paperwork. If you've completed the downloadable paperwork ahead—whether you're working in-person or remotely—there's no need to arrive early.
What should I expect during a session with you?A Wholeness Energetics session involves sitting, talking, muscle testing, and my taking notes that you will receive. It may involve sharing what brings you in, gathering data, setting a goal, discovering what subconsciously stands in the way of that goal, healing old beliefs, and establishing practical next steps. The session may involve visualization, regression, or meditation. The session occasionally calls for your lying face up on a treatment table, fully clothed, and sometimes for your receiving energy healing, as I put my hands over you or under you with either no touch or light touch as you feel warmth and relaxation. A sense of having stepped into your next chapter of life often follows a session and of traveling up a spiral through subsequent sessions. If working remotely, I'll muscle test instead on my arm as surrogate to yours. A Support Sessions involves us sitting and talking, and my taking notes that you will receive. It may involve sharing what brings you in, realizing old beliefs, and gaining new insight.
Do I need to know what issue I'm focusing on or which session I'm needing before I book a session?No, you do not need to know ahead. It may be more expedient if you do. And it may be more of an adventure if you don't. In a Wholeness Energetics Session, the muscle testing—a link to our superconscious—guides each session and dictates the "highest and best" direction. Clients are welcome to book a 90-minute Wholeness Energetics session, then decide it's actually just a Support Session they need that day: billing is based on time. Sometimes we arrive for a Wholeness Energetics Session, knowing on which issue we want to focus, only to receive muscle testing feedback that a different issue is actually "highest and best" on which to focus that session.
What should I know prior to booking a session?Prior to a Wholeness Energetics Session, plan on drinking plenty of water and limiting your intake of caffeine and other potentially altering substances. Plan on wearing clothes comfortable for the whole session and focusing on what you wish to come of the session. Following a session, plan on continuing to drink plenty of water. Plan on being gentle with yourself for the next 24 hours following a session, as you would after a massage, to allow your transformative work to integrate, rather than rushing off to work or errands. Plan time to sit quietly, journal, take a relaxing bath, rest or sleep. Wait 24 hours before pursuing a second modality. I welcome your letting me know how you are doing the following day or more, and any questions that arise. Prior to a Support Session, please limit your intake of caffeine or other potentially altering substances.
May I complete paperwork ahead of time?Certainly. My intake and waiver forms are available in my confirmation email to print, complete, mail, email, or bring. Or you may complete them in the Mountain Medical Arts waiting room 10 minutes before an in-person session.
What forms of payment do you accept?Though I do not currently accept credit cards, I do accept cash, checks made out to "Jennifer Dorfield," Venmo, Zelle, and PayPal via "friends and family," addresses to be supplied upon request. Payment for remote sessions is 24 hours in advance.
What is your cancellation policy?I ask a 24-hour cancellation notice and may request a $35 cancellation fee if less than 24-hour notice. I charge the full session price for cancellations with no notification.
Are sessions confidential?Yes, all of my work with clients is confidential. If you have been referred by a healthcare provider and would like me to share our session's results with that practitioner, you may complete a HIPAA form authorizing me to do so.
How are you managing Covid precautions?I am vaccinated, boosted and circumstances permitting, seeing clients sometimes in person, usually masked.
Are you a "healer"?I love this question. Though my ego would love identifying with something this glamorous, the truth is it's not me doing the healing. It's you. Where we go has much more to do with what you're ready for that session: no more, no less. What are you ready to heal? It would be my honor to "walk a path" with you and help how I may.
What I love about Wholeness Energetics
Perhaps just one session needed: Wholeness Energetics is so efficient, given it bypasses the conscious mind, that it may require only one session to resolve an issue.
Further sessions bring further change:We proceed at a pace you're comfortable with, as if working our way up a spiral. This work tends to meet us where we are, with what we're ready for: no more, no less.
Guided by your Self: Unlike consulting a psychic or medium, the entity guiding our work together is instead you, or rather your Higher Self. I facilitate not with the authority of an expert but as a “guide on the side” as we journey together, lead by your higher Self, as communicated through energy testing (applied kinesiology).
Each session is different: Each session calls for a different portal through which we access blockages and for a different balance by which we release them, all in the process of clearing the way for manifesting your highest and best goal at that time.

"I came away from this session with a revolutionary experience: felt awareness for a new understanding of how some people express anger (and strong emotion) as a way of creating connection. While this is far from my operating system, I now have deeper empathy and capacity to hold space for people in states of rage, with a new awareness that behind their anger is often hurt and a call to be held, or drawn closer. Jenn is authentic, genuine, present, and has a poetic grace. She has a keen intuitive ability and was able to get me to remove the masks I wear and see and show the shadow aspects of myself I was formerly afraid to confront. I am now able to honor my desire to communicate non-violently when I am upset, while still being able to hear and hold those in more voluminous modes of anger long enough to get to what's behind their hurt."
