I am Julia Rhodes, principal colon hydro therapist with West London Colonics.
WLC Wahanda page: http://www.wahanda.com/place/west-london-colonics/

With colon hydrotherapy, the answer falls into 2 stages:
A) Pre colonic preparation
Preparation with hydration is key.
A lot of bowel dysfunction is aggravated (if not caused) by poor levels of hydration (too little water intake) and too much of the wrong sort of liquids (coffee fizzy drinks, alcohol). The prime instruction I give to clients is to drink more water for 3 to 4 days before the colonic. It’s not the only instruction, but it’s the main one.
B) During the session, there’s the split between on table colonics time, and other time. In a typical hour-long session, about 35-to40 min is ample for the former. The therapeutic action is obvious. People typically report feeling good after. The feelgood factor can extends well beyond the session, sometimes for a month or two.

An NLP Practitioner is trained to look for physiological changes in a person - things like rate of breathing, complexion of face, tone of voice etc, and these are the first signs that a person is processing or about to make a significant change.

This kind of change happens in a matter of minutes - a sudden realisation, or a decision rest on a pivotal point. It may take a while to make the changes in life to reflect that decision, but the decision itself is instant and an experienced practitioner can spot the many signs.

Also, a person who makes a big change to their perception or understanding will suddenly very much want to tell you about it, and again the way someone speaks and the words they use are indicative that a shift has taken place. In NLP and Hypnotherapy, that's the end of the practitioner's job.

The client comes to get some help with making a change in outlook, feelings or outcome and the practitioner helps that person to find the resources they need (strength, determination, security, peace) to make the change. It's literally like a light bulb moment, or often quite a few light bulb moments in a row. Integrating the change into their own life is something the client can do best themselves.

So I expect a client to achieve this sort of personal change in two to three appointments, then s/he gets to take it away and build on it.

Making good use of a big change like this is an ongoing process. You get instant change in how you feel/think and want to do things, then you start to use that in your life and build on it. and I would expect someone to continue to integrate the changes over six months to a year, maybe more.

I've added a link to the fears and phobias page of my website below, as it explains the change process a little more.

Have a great day,
Georgia

As health/wellness practioners (I'm an LMT and a Nutritionist) we've got our routines down pretty pat. If we/they need extra time we'll ask the client to schedule it in for the next session. Or add an additional session into the week/month . . . in the case of a new client with wellness issues or injury this often happens. If you didn't accomplish everything a client asks of you, your best bet is to prioritize in the moment and see them again to continue what you began in the first session.
Hope this helps answer your question.

As a makeup artist I alot times for certain styles... If I am doing classic beauty makeup 30 min. should be enough time. If I am doing classic beauty makeup for HD photo shoots 45 min. is better, and if I am holding someone's hand walking them through how to apply makeup themselves 1 hr. is perfect (30 min. to aplly makeup and 30 min. for questions along the way)

Anything bigger like FX makeup, time needs to be schedualed according to a trial run.

Depending on the type of treatment you are giving, if its just on hair that is semi damaged or hair that is extremely damaged or if its on healthy hair and the treatment is to help promote hair growth each type of treatment take different amounts of time.

Your intuition and energy will let know when to stop.

JoanneB2010 5 years ago

It depends on what the treatment is. I do a lot of trigger point work and you know when a knot releases because you can feel it. It's great to be able to give someone relief from soreness, pain, stiffness within one session.

tclark118 5 years ago

My rule is, if you don't notice at least SOME positive change within 24-48 hours, then treatment or client / practitioner combination might be in question... not knowing more about your specific situation leaves me in a gray area... Perhaps you could be more forthcoming with those specifics ?

Verbal communication with the client and I let the body tell me by visual and manuel communication, you can observe and feel a tight muscle and you can feel it melt under your touch, the body become or flexible with the touch.

MichelleZelli 5 years ago

We expand all tasks and creativity into the time we have allocated. It is worth working in the reverse, decide what you want your client to experience and what you will need to do in order to provide this, how long does that take?
I use 90 minutes for a session. 30 minutes to review the previous week or two since the last session, 45 minutes to work with transformation tools and the final 15 minutes to discuss what the client has learned and experienced and how they are going to move forward through the coming period until their next session or the event they are preparing for.

All beauty therapy treatments have recommended times eg manicure 30mins however if the condition of the cuticles are poor then you would allow more time on this and cut back on the massagethis would need to be dicussed with client when preparing a treatment plan

Heather7 5 years ago

It really depends on what treatment you are referring to. Most treatments I would say have time recommendations. I would also say that common sense comes into play as well.

Rebecca Urban Oasis 5 years ago

You would have your specified times for each treatment that you offer but if you ever feel that the client needs more of your time then do so. Trust your intuition but don't do it where your not leaving yourself enough time for the next client.

ALLIEshair 5 years ago

if you are talking about the keratine treament the soon you finish to aplay on the hair you inmitially star to blow dryer the hair and seal the product with 450 flat iron you don't need time procesing

ColourQueen55 5 years ago

If you are talking about highlights or color for the hair, I follow the manufacturers directions, then I bring in my own expertise and watch the development process. When the color has either lightened or developed, I wash it off. Normally, lightener can take anywhere from 20 minutes under the dryer to develop or 45 minutes without heat.
Tint should develop for 25 to 40 minutes depending on the amount of gray coverage. Hope this helps!
