We all need mothering, regardless of our age.
One of the most challenging aspects of bringing Karuna Sessions to the world has been identifying a target audience. All homo sapiens share the common experience of being born and living in a physical body. Individuals will have differing desires and tolerances for physical contact, and cultural attitudes moderate availability, but the need for touch is innate in our biology.
Many a talented marketing maven has banged her head against the wall when trying to help us answer the question, "Who are our customers?" (Answer: everybody.) Each of us will find ourselves in need of relaxation, respite, comfort or connection at some point in our lives, and we may not be able to ask for or receive it from our friends and family. We are taking a radical approach to wellness, one which is frequently overlooked, misunderstood and shrouded in shame.
We have found that there are many situations and life circumstances where a Karuna Session offers relief that can be found by creating conscious connection through immersive touch. Some people read about our offerings and instinctually know they need what we offer; still others are referred by a friend or a professional. We often hear our clients at the end of the session say "I have no idea how much I needed that."
We have not yet identified a specific category of peeople who seek our services. Our past clients have included*:
- New mothers
- Tech professionals
- Retired people
- Transgender women
- Recently divorced individuals
- Chronically ill individuals
- Cancer survivors
- Advertising executives
- Food servers
- Admin Assistants
- Our moms
Some individuals only see us once; others will schedule a series of appointments to work on an issue with us as a part of their therapeutic team. Those who make this a part of their wellness regimen come once every 6-12 months. A little Karuna goes a long way.
* Reminder: if you are having an emotional or psychological crisis, we will not work with you without the knowledge and cooperation of your medical doctor or therapist.
