What is my job?
My work basically focuses on deep relaxation. I go into a relaxed state and, through a process of empathetic communication, that relaxation is translated to the person receiving treatment. The energy that is normally destined to sustain tension and stress is freed and available to direct to wherever the body (be that the physical, energetic, or mental) needs it most in order to regenerate and balance itself.
My therapy can be applied to a wide range of afflictions: emotional stress, existential crises, physical pain of all types, or the simple desire to connect with one’s own energy body.
Practically, there is no physical contact whatsoever. You lie on a futon, I sit beside you without moving, and then everything just happens by itself.
What is “empathetic communication”? As a law of nature, when anything is full, that which is inside will inevitably begin to overflow, spilling over the edges like a river bursting its banks. The process is a mechanical one. Having nothing to do with human will, it is purely automatic. It does not involve empathy with the suffering of others, neither is it sentimental nor emotional. There is no will to help. I do not feel anything in particular when I work. I just fill myself so completely that when I begin to overflow this invariably enters those close to me.
Entering the other In my work, everything is taken to look within itself. If you are pushed to look within yourself, if you are able to turn your gaze inward and see what is there, then a comprehension of the outside world will come automatically. If you can know what is within you, then you can know what is inside others. It´s not that you will be able to know, but rather, you will know.
If you can enter into yourself, you will enter automatically into the other.
Looking within Everything, absolutely everything in life, demands to be seen. Everything wants to rise to the surface, because when things are seen, they can be integrated and dissolved into the cosmos and then put in their place. It doesn’t matter who sees your tension (all our suffering is some kind of tension). Whether I see it or you do, the important thing is that it is seen and brought to consciousness so that it can be integrated and dissolved.
We do not try to change anything. Simply by seeing, we allow tension to disperse on its own accord.
What can you expect from a session? I do not expect anything when I do a session, you should not expect anything when you come. This does not mean you have to come without a purpose. If you have a chronic headache and you’re looking for a solution to that pain this is a concrete purpose and that’s great, you’ve come to the right place! But you must be open to receive the help you’re looking for in ways that are sometimes totally unexpected. This is an autonomous process and it goes wherever it wishes to go rather than where I tell it to go.
At a formal level, sometimes I will talk a lot whilst other times I will be very quiet. Sometimes I will ask many questions and on other occasions I will not let you tell me anything. Whatever we do will be done and whatever there is to come out will do so on its own accord. There will always be relaxation and when we relax, the most amazing things can happen.
There is no specific time for each session. Usually they take from 1 hour to 1 hour and a half, but when you do come you should have time enough in case the session runs over.
Also note that after each session it is better not to drink any alcohol nor do any hard exercise. In fact, you may feel a little tired for a few hours and should certainly take this into consideration.
I also ask you to not wear cologne or perfume the day of your session (and if you must, please keep it to a minimum).
Price for each session:
50 € (Barcelona) / 40 € (Sant Pol)
*I can held sessions in English, Spanish or Catalan.
I began a few sessions with her and after a relatively short time we had already worked on a variety of issues. My experience was one of having been treated for various physical and energy problems. Whenever I was at Berta’s I felt relaxed and we would work on a certain parts of my body which, from this day on, I have noticed have got better. She treated my solar plex zone (which felt very blocked), my feet (that hurt me due to various injuries), the back of my neck, my spine (that had always been very tense). These are what I have noted down but there were also many other afflictions that got better which I didn’t. On top of this, the weeks I was seeing Berta, and especially the days of our sessions, I slept a lot and felt as though, in my dreams, I was somehow being repaired. I remember (because I noted them down) dreams incredibly rich in detail and lessons as if, during the nights new paths were being opened up to me. During my sessions with Berta I would feel very sleepy and sometimes 1 hour would pass in the space of what felt like 10 minutes. One time I even felt as if I had fallen inside my own body. The whole experience was very positive. Together, we changed many significant issues, helping me turn a corner in my life».
For me, my life can be divided into “before” and “after” my visits to Berta».
