BlissPoint BreathWork & Breathwork Release of Liability, Waiver and Assumption of Risk Agreement
In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way in BlissPoint BreathWork as well as any related events or activities with Lisa de Narvaez, (hereinafter collectively “the Activities”) I, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge, understand and expressly agree as to the following:
BreathWork can result in intense physical and emotional release. Therefore, it is not advised for persons with a history of cardiovascular disease, including angina or heart attack, high blood pressure, glaucoma, retinal detachment, osteoporosis, significant recent physical injuries or surgery.
BreathWork is not advised for persons with severe mental illness or seizure disorders or for persons using major medications. It is also unsuitable for anyone with a personal or family history of aneurysms. Pregnant women are advised against practicing BreathWork without first consulting and getting approval from their primary care physician. Persons with asthma should bring their inhaler and consult with their primary care physician.
This work is deeply experiential. It may involve intense and energetic emotional release. Breathwork work does not substitute for psychotherapy, but it can significantly deepen and enhance psychotherapy and other healing and personal growth efforts.
