What does a Reflexology treatment involve?
Your first visit will last 75 mins, we will spend approx. 15 mins talking about any health issue you may have and your general lifestyle. After taking your shoes and socks off I will cleanse your feet with wipes before beginning the 60 mins treatment. Subsequent treatments will last 60 mins.
Does Reflexology hurt?
Contrary to many people’s expectations it is not at all ticklish mainly because the pressure applied is quite firm. For the most part, the sensation is pleasant, soothing and relaxing. There may be discomfort in some areas which is an indication of congestion or imbalance to the corresponding part of the body. After the 1st or 2nd treatment your body may respond in a definite way as the body system balances itself and clears unwanted toxins. You may feel lethargic but this is transitory and is part of the healing process. After a treatment you should drink plenty of water and rest when you can.
How will I feel afterwards?
Most of my clients feel very relaxed and others feel energised and invigorated.
How many treatments will I need?
A course of treatments is recommended for specific ailments. An average course is usually 6 treatments depending on the condition. Improvements are usually felt after 4 treatments and follow-up sessions are recommended in order to maintain health and well-being. Also individual sessions can be used as an extremely relaxing alternative to a full body massage!
