Please see my most frequently asked questions below. If your question isn't answered please feel free to email me!
WHAT WILL MY FIRST SESSION BE LIKE?
Your treatment will last either half hour or an hour depending on which treatment you have booked – timings are noted on the treatments page.
A confidential medical history will be taken on the first visit to discuss your lifestyle and if there are any health concerns you would like to address. This is very informal and allows me to get to know you a little better and to understand how I can help you with reflexology. You will be asked to sign the consultation form confirming your personal details and permission for me to treat you.
Before the treatment starts, you will need to remove your shoes, socks or tights.
When the treatment is finished I will discuss any imbalances that I have found during the treatment and will give advice where possible.
HOW MAY I FEEL DURING A TREATMENT?
You will feel extremely relaxed, and most clients fall asleep!
Sometimes if you have an imbalance the feet may be a little tender.
You may start to feel cold as the body relaxes, but I have plenty of blankets available to ensure you will be comfortable throughout the treatment.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER A TREATMENT?
You may experience reactions to reflexology, however this is normal and are a good sign that your body is responding to the treatment and that toxins are being removed.
You will feel very relaxed after the treatment, but may experience some of the common reactions listed below –
- Mild headache
- Increased emotion
- Sleeping well
- Feeling cold or hot
- Increased urination
- Temporary worsening of presenting /underlying condition
Symptoms will usually pass within 24 hours, but it is advised to drink 2 litres of water following your treatment to help the toxins pass through the body.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING TO THE TREATMENT?
No you don’t need to bring anything, just yourself!
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM REFLEXOLOGY SESSIONS?
Anyone of any age can experience the benefits of having a Reflexology treatment. You don’t need to have a reason to go for a treatment, it is great for relaxation but can also help with some ailments you may have.
HOW MANY REFLEXOLOGY SESSIONS WILL I NEED BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
People may see results after one or two sessions. For maximum results, it is suggested that clients have one session per week for four to five consecutive weeks. At the end of the fourth session we will evaluate for health improvement. Upon health improvement, sessions will be spaced to every other week then every 3 weeks, then every 4-6 weeks for maintenance.
However, everyone is different and I will tailor treatment plans based on you as an individual.
IS REFLEXOLOGY SAFE DURING PREGNANCY?
Yes Reflexology is safe throughout all stages of pregnancy.
