What should I expect from my first session?
At your first session there will be a quick consultation form for you to complete, this will allow me to adapt your treatment for any illnesses or discomfort you have.
You will remove your shoes and socks and sit in a supportive reclining chair. I will check that your body feels supported and comfortable so you can close your eyes, relax and enjoy the treatment.
How should I prepare for my first treatment?
There is no specific preparation required for your treatment. It is recommended that you wear loose fitting trousers so these can be moved up the leg and give access to the ankles and calves.
How often should I have a treatment?
As often as you like. You can have a treatment every day or once a month. To get the greatest benefit it is recommended that you have them regularly, once or twice a month.
What should I expect after my treatment? Any aftercare advice?
It’s recommended that you rest and drink water after your treatment, this will allow your body to get the full benefits of the treatment and flush out built up toxins in the body.
You may feel a sense of warmth, relaxation and improved wellbeing after your treatment as well as an improved night’s sleep. You may also experience a ‘healing crisis’ this is when your body tries to eliminate toxins faster than they can be disposed of. This reaction is actually a very good sign as it signifies that the treatment is working for you. Symptoms are short lived and can include a headache, increased urination, chills and itching.
I have ticklish feet, can I have reflexology?
Absolutely! Reflexology is done with a firm touch and will not feel ticklish. I’ve treated a number of clients who didn’t think they could tolerate their feet being touched and they have all been converted to reflexology.
