5 Huge Beliefs that Alternative Practitioners don’t Realize are Keeping your Clients from Getting Faster Results and standing in the way of Growing your Business


Belief #1 "You Need to Gather as Much Information You can From a Client"

A client comes to you presenting a health issue. Typically there is an intake process of information gathering. Often times, this will take up much of the clients first session by either gathering the information or discussing any information collected prior to your first meeting.

The client comes looking for instant gratification and instead is caught up in discussing information without any resolutions or steps toward resolution by the end of the first session. When a client is paying cash for the initial consult and walks away from the session feeling like nothing has really happened and know it will require multiple sessions to work on their issue, they will often think twice about returning if it looks like it will be an expensive ordeal.

The truth is that the information being gathered may actually not even relevant to helping the client. It's what we are taught to do, so we do it. We'll talk more about that in a moment...

Belief # 2 "I need to know every detail of the client's story"

When a client shares information, whether you realize it or not, you're picking up on their energy. We now know that the heart puts out energy that can be picked up from a distance. Sometimes getting caught up in the story is draining your energy. Emotions can come up for both practitioner and client when the story is verbalized.

Many times a client comes to you saying they want help with a health issue but inside they're not sure whether that's the truth. When you live with a health issue for a long time your identity is often affected by the health issue and if the health issue resolves, then a sense of loss of identity is felt. The client may say one thing when actually sessions are filled with resistance because of this issue.

Then you have clients that come for help and they share "information" that isn't the entire story or a revised version of the truth. They may not want to reveal the truth because 'what would it say about them' to admit it out loud. If a client isn't being honest, then it hinders the client from finding a resolution and is a time waster for the practitioner.

The human brain is amazing. The brain can process information at speed we can't even fathom. Computers have yet to compete with the speed of the brain. So when the client is sharing information, how much information are they weeding out before they share what they think is important?

What if it was ok for them not to share anything at all? What if they could just process the information and never share the intimiate details of 'what was so important to keep a secret' and that the practitioner could still guide the client to sorting out the resolution to their health issues?

What if less information and details would get you the same results without you as practitioner listening in on all the specific details and you wouldn't have to get caught up in the drama? What if you could do a session with a client and feel more energized? It is absolutely possible and we'll let you know how soon but let's look at the next point before we get into that.

Belief # 3 I need to Be on Guard about what i Say or Do with a Client

Traditional Medicine has the corner on terminology that are seen as medical terms. Words like "cure" and "diagnosis" could land you in a heap of trouble. An alternative practitioner needs to ensure they don't use these "medically claimed" words or face the consequences.

Many countries have varying outlooks on what is acceptable for an alternative practitioner to do with clients and whether it crosses the boundaries of acceptability.
e.g. can you touch the client? can you ask certain questions about their "medical diagnosis".
There is also the concerns that may come from a client themselves about how you do what you do which could cross personal boundaries.

You can also face clients who come to see you to help with their issues and are not familiar with your methods who may see you as over "eccentric" or "from another planet". If you jump right into something a little "unusual" without getting the clients permission first, they may turn around and say "negative comments" about you to others (which can hurt your practice) or worse, complain about your methods to "the powers that be".

When a client comes to you, it's not just them that is affected. Disease in a person affects everyone around them whether its a common cold or a serious health concern. When a client works with you, you need to always be aware that that client has a family and group of friends that may not "believe" in alternative practices. You may come face to face with those extended members of your clients circle to legitimize what you do. There is also the concern that if your clients health doesn't improve or worsens, will you face legal issues by the family?

There are strategies that you as a practitioner can do to completely minimize your concerns over these type of issues so they aren't relevant. Let's look at the 4th Belief first.

Belief # 4 Alternative Practices aren't as good as Traditional medicine.

Do you make the same money as a traditional medical doctor? Why not? Often alternative practitioners will see clients for four times (4x) the time period that a doctor would see a patient and still not make the same kind of money the doctor made in just 15 minutes.
This is largely due to the belief that alternative practices are "not as legitimate" as traditional medicine. Yet a recent medical journal reported that in the USA alone over 38% of people turn to Alternative Health Practices (December 2008,
the NCCAM and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)) up 2% from just 2002. A significant trend is showing that each year more and more people are seeking out alternative care because their not getting the results from traditional medicine.

If we could show you how you could get results for your clients, in a shorter period of time, without gathering all the specific details don't you think you're work would be worth a raise? We have one final belief to look at and then we'd like to share how these beliefs can be shattered.

Belief # 5 We should focus on symptoms and relieve those.

Traditional medicine teaches doctors how to treats patient symptoms. There are many alternative practices which follow the same concept. What has been discovered in the last few decades is that disease is not a mistake and that it is actually part of a larger process that has a beginning middle and end. This process has several stages.

The initial stage is the point at where a significant event (a stressor) occurs that sets of a domino effect in the body, which becomes the health issue. Every health issue can be understood as it goes through each of the stages and you can actually pinpoint what will happen next. Every disease can fit inside of these stages.

When you understand the stages, you can help your client go back to the root cause (the beginning) and help them to discover the significant event that began setting the disease or pain in motion. When you know the root stressor you can then clear out the energy behind the significant event and the client can begin the process of self-healing.

So how can you work with a client, gather only the information that is important, not get caught up in the specifics of their story (the drama)? How can you legitimize your business and make it stand out enough that you could earn the same respect as traditional doctors? How can you find out how to tap into the 6 stages and determine how to find this significant stressful event that triggered a clients health issue?

Advanced Clearing Energetics(ACE) provides you will all these answers. The 2-day length online courses provide practitioners with the insights behind the stages of disease, how to help a client find the root cause and teach you amazing energy clearing techniques. The best part is you can use the techniques, tools and information alongside your current modality and get incredible results for both your client and yourself.

You will learn how to work with a client and share minimum details or never even get them to share details, especially if they don't want to, and still get incredible results. You will learn how to guide a client to finding the root cause of the issue they're currently dealing with and find out how to clear the energy behind it.

The best part is that you'll discover not only how you can reduce the time it takes you to normally work with a client but get even better results in the shorter time period.
