Some clients have found that laying flat with their eye closed can raise anxiety and cause almost a claustrophobic response. Most client get comfortable after about 5 minutes and majority of clients fall asleep. Receiving eyelash extensions is very relaxing. However, if you have a history of claustrophobia or anxiety it can be helpful, especially on you first visit, to have a therapy dog you can pet while you are getting your eyelashes done. Please request this ahead of time if this is something you desire.
If you would like a therapy dog for any other reason or at another location please contact Amy Lynn or TDI, www.tdi-dog.org
