Q: How long is a session?
Typically, the 3-part once-a-week session takes 30-35 minutes.
Two of the devices are passive and one is active, involving 4 supervised very brief exercises.
You may opt for add-on sessions using the PowerPlate and PEMF devices to accelerate wellness and progress.
Q: Are the sessions individual or group?
Individual. Each session is guided by a certified coach. You have your own designated appointment time each week.
Call (505) 557-6209 for your appointment.
Q: Why is the BioDensity technology done only once a week?
The 4 “exercises” create a trigger event in the body. A cascade of biological adaptations is set in motion. The average time the body needs to complete these processes – break down old tissue and rebuild new – is about 7 – 10 days. We have found a regular 7-day cycle works best.
Q: Who would benefit from additional PEMF and Live Vibe if you choose sessions?
But seriously, here’s our best suggestion (and this is what we do) — the BioDensity machine just once every 7 days.
The PEMF and the Live Vibe have different suggested protocols for maximum benefit. Both can be used daily. When that is not practical, 2-5 times a week is extremely beneficial.
Situations like the following would benefit from frequent sessions – 3 or more times a week:
-Those interested in accelerating their wellness.
-Those dealing with health issues that benefit from frequent exposure, especially to the Bemer mat. We are limited as to what we can claim. Please go online and see what others are reporting about the benefits of PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) technology and Whole Body Vibration. Quite remarkable!
-Those who have become deconditioned (unfit) for any number of reasons and wish to start a program to systematically re-build strength without the risks associated with gyms and weights and exercise classes.
-Those who may wish to manage chronic “discomfort”.
-Those who would like to re-balance their bodies bi-laterally. This is often athletes who have developed a dominant side. Or someone who is returning from an injury to one side of the body.
Q: What should I wear for my sessions?
However you’ve chosen to dress for your day will be just fine. There are no extreme body positions.
Socks or a flat-soled exercise shoe is best.
Please leave your outdoor shoes on the shoe rack before entering the studio area.
Q: What payment methods do you accept?
Checks, credit cards and cash.
Q: How can I maximize my progress?
Water! Be hydrated when you arrive and drink water during and after your sessions.
Start slow. The three technologies are simple and very easy to use. The effect, however, is profound. This is not a race. We want you to feel good after your sessions and look forward to them. You should not be sore after DancingBones sessions.
Attitude. Attitude is everything – a willingness to wrap your mind around a new concept, to expect positive results and to focus like a laser (for 20 seconds a week!). During the brief session time, we ask that you give full attention to your coach’s instructions.
Q: What if I am not ambulatory?
Each situation is different. It is possible that with your physician’s approval, we can adapt the program to your needs. And we have done so successfully with several members. It’s important to note, you must be able to ambulate sufficiently to get on the devices. No staff at DancingBones is allowed or trained to handle, in terms of physically aiding, any client.
Hugs are the exception!
Q: Is this program considered complete for body conditioning?
It’s a very good foundation and it works well with your other life activities and/or training programs.
Beyond that, for those involved in athletic performance, these technologies individually have been used for many years to radically improve athletic performance. Together the three technologies can truly give you an athletic edge.
DancingBones is proud to be sponsoring our first triathlete, Philippe Muller. Philippe competes at a high level and reports that after just 6 weeks on the DancingBones Program, his bike times are faster than l year ago.
Q: What if I go on vacation and miss several weeks?
Pre-planned extended absences – we will work with you.
Occasional absences will not substantially impede your progress.
Of course, as with anything undertaken, consistency gets the best results.
Q: What if I want a longer therapeutic PEMF session?
We have a private treatment room for hour-long and multiple-hour sessions.
Q: WHY DancingBones?
It’s our desire to bring joy and ease of movement back into all stages of life. Aging presents all too common health challenges. Added to that we are seeing an epidemic of health challenges in shockingly young populations. The general trend has been to turn to drugs or invasive protocols to manage conditions. There’s a time and place for drugs and medical intervention. However there are some very effective, non-invasive and drug-free choices. The DancingBones program is one of them.
Q: Genesis – HOW DID IT START?
The concept grew out of Sheila’s 19-year search for answers to her own (sometimes severe) health challenges. In that time, she discovered some beautiful and effective alternative modalities and wonderful practitioners who have helped her along the way. Many thousands of dollars later (advanced alternative modalities are never covered by insurance!), many steps backward and forward on this journey, her desire now is to present to others some of the most effective things that have worked for her. Very helpful along the way as well, has been her love for her horses and animals. Listening to them, observing them closely and addressing their health challenges, injuries etc. pushed her to study, research and find solutions.
Q: WHO IS SHEILA?
Sheila’s (creator of DancingBones) first career was that of an athlete. She was a young amateur gymnast, then a professional dancer, choreographer and Broadway and film performer in NYC.
She holds certification in Homeopathy (both constitutional and acute) and has done post-grad work in Programming Wellness for Industry (Toronto). She formerly maintained a healing practice in Santa Fe, NM and has a searing passion to uncover the potential for wellness and vitality in all.
DancingBones provides Sheila a venue from which to offer certain advanced technologies and other discoveries of sound therapeutic value for your consideration and health.
As well, she owns and operates, along with her husband of several decades, a restaurant, which has set the standard in Santa Fe for locally sourced whole healthy food – Joe’s Dining. Joe’s Dining is New Mexico’s biggest restaurant buyer of locally-produced foods of all kinds.
