Sessions of Healing Dance finish with putting the receiver's feet on the ground and leaning their back against the wall of the pool. These feedbacks were spoken by the receiver then or written out in a form after the session.
“I never want to walk again. I just want to float in the pool. It’s ecstasy, going home, feeling connected."
“I feel great...light. My joints feel completely supple. The moments of stillness I liked, were powerful. The fullness collapsed into the moment, crystallized, the movement needed the stillness.”
Now I know what it’s like not to have a body. I was so far gone."
“It’s magic. I felt I was riding my breath.”
“Incredible. I knew it would be good, but not this good. So relaxing."
“That was the most nurtured I’ve ever felt in my life.”
“That was the most blissful experience I’ve ever had. It was the most safe I’ve felt in my life.”
“Now I know what astronauts feel like. Lovely. Sense of body, sense of self."
“Very beautiful. My whole body feels very alive."
“Wow. It was like flying.”
At the finish of every Healing Dance training participants fill out a questionnaire evaluating their experience. Here are some quotes.

"I enjoyed improvisation classes a lot. It is in a spirit of healing not to stick to the routine in a rigid way.

"The whole Healing Dance just opens up my inner self, lets me surrender and trigger all the primal stages, which I have never felt so clear!" G.E.
