What to expect
Your first session will include a brief lifestyle and health consultation followed by the reflexology treatment. I have an extremely comfortable reclining Reflexology chair or you are welcome to lie on your bed if you prefer. Any imbalances found will be discussed and a tailored/personalised treatment plan will be devised to meet your needs should you wish to have follow-up sessions.
Although, traditionally, reflexology is carried out on the feet, I am trained to work on the feet, hands and ears. Therefore, each treatment may include all three if appropriate.
You are welcome to book a one off treatment to relax and recharge, there is no pressure at all!
Most people feel extremely calm and relaxed following a treatment. Changes in energy levels, mood, appetite and sleep patterns can also be experienced. These are all totally normal and are just the body’s way of trying to rebalance itself. It is advisable to drink plenty of water, reduce caffeine and alcohol and eat lighter meals for a few days after to help with this rebalancing process.
Will it hurt?
Pain or sensitivity is one of the things reflexologists look for as it indicates areas that need to be worked.
Therefore, an element of pain or discomfort may be felt during the session. However, the pressure used will always be adjusted to keep within the client’s pain threshold.
What do I wear?
Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive and, depending on the type you have, the most clothing you will need to remove for a treatment is your shoes and socks.
As I work the feet and lower leg it is ideal to wear loose fitting trousers or shorts.
