Medical Waiver and Confidentiality

Medical Waiver and Confidentiality

Breathwork is a powerful healing modality and although usually a deeply relaxing and enjoyable process, it can result in certain specific physiological changes in the body and also sometimes intense physical and emotional release.

Please be aware that sessions can cause and are not limited to:

    • Tingling
    • Dizziness
    • Trembling, shaking or other physical sensations
    • Emotional experiences
    • Experience of energy moving through your body

As a precaution, the following conditions are contraindicated for anyone thinking of practicing the Conscious Connected Breath and it is crucial that you inform your breathwork practitioner before the session if any of the following conditions are relevant to you. You can still join and we will guide you accordingly:

    • Pregnancy first trimester
    • Detached Retina or Glaucoma
    • High Blood Pressure (not controlled with medication)
    • Cardiovascular disease including angina, previous heart attack or stroke.
    • Diagnosis of aneurysm in the brain or abdomen
    • Uncontrolled thyroid conditions and diabetes
    • Asthma – if you are asthmatic, you are welcome to attend providing you bring your inhaler to the session.
    • Epilepsy
    • Prior diagnosis of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or previous psychiatric condition.
    • Hospitalisation for any psychiatric condition or emotional crisis within the last 10 years.
    • Any other medical, psychiatric or physical conditions which would impair or affect ability to engage in any activities that involve intense physical and/or emotional release.

Waive and Release
It is each participant’s responsibility to look after their own physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. I am not a medical practitioner and take no responsibility for injury you may sustain as a result of participating in sessions. By booking any of my sessions, workshops or programmes you accept the following waiver:

“I understand that if I am taking any medications or have any medical conditions such as, but not being limited to those contraindicated above, that I must advise the facilitator/s. I certify that I have consulted a health professional regarding any physical, mental or emotional condition that could interfere with my judgment, or affect my health in any way during or after any and all session(s). I understand and acknowledge that I am responsible for consulting my health care provider or doctor in case I have or suspect to be suffering from a health problem. I understand and acknowledge that I am fully responsible for any and all risks, injuries, or damages, known or unknown, which might occur as a result of my participation and hereby waive and release Matt Freer from any claim, demand, cause of action of any kind resulting from or related to my participation in any programme or sessions. It is with this understanding that I voluntarily accept this waiver.”

It is a condition of participating in any of my online sessions, workshops or programmes that you do not talk about another’s experience outside of the session. You can of course talk about your own experience, or your own reactions to another’s experience but otherwise full confidentiality is a fundamental requirement of your participation.
