What will happen during my treatment?
On first visit, a consultation of full medical history will be requested which is kept confidential.
You will be asked to remove shoes and socks, and you will be seated in a very relaxing therapist’s reclining chair. (If you dislike being reclined, please let me know when booking your appointment for alternative equipment to be brought in).
Cream is applied to the feet before adding pressure using a precise technique to the feet and lower leg. The pressure can be changed to firm or soft, depending to your preference.
It is useful to give feedback during or after the treatment as this may show me how your body responds.
Relaxing music and a scented candle or burning oil is sometimes used during a treatment.
How long does a treatment last?
The treatment lasts for approx. 55 minutes-1 hour, ending with a relaxing foot massage to wind down the session and promote relaxation further.
How will I feel during a treatment?
- Calm and relaxed
- Light-headed/floating sensation
How may I feel after a treatment?
- Sense of well-being
- Relaxed & Revitalised
- “Like I’m walking on air”
Drinking water afterwards
After a treatment, it is very important to drink at least 2 extra glasses of water to avoid getting dehydrated. Reflexology aids removal of toxins so as long as fluid is replaced there should be no side effects.
How many treatments will I need?
There is no set answer to this question as everyone is different. However, if there is a specific issue that you are hoping to address, then it is likely that you will need a course of treatments. People usually need at least 4 treatments to start to feel the real benefit of Reflexology, as it has a cumulative effect and so each treatment builds on the benefits felt from the previous treatment(s). However, many clients feel some immediate benefits after their first visit.
In an ideal world, I recommend initially 4-6 treatments weekly or fortnightly, then afterwards once a month as a ‘top up’, although many clients can’t wait that long!
