Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a treatment last?
About an hour. Additional time is required in the first treatment for the taking of a detailed case history.
What will you do when you are treating me?
Work on your feet, lower leg and possibly your hands.
Who can benefit from Reflexology
People of all ages, there are no limitations or boundaries from babies to the elderly, a session of treatments can only be beneficial.
How long will a course of treatments last?
Most people find some benefit after a couple of treatments - a typical course lasts for six sessions. Regular maintenance treatments have proved popular with many clients.
What are Meridians?
We all have Meridians that run in pairs through our entire bodies. There are 6 major pairs of Meridians that run through the main organs in the body and most end on the feet. When gentle pressure is applied on precise reflex points, this causes physiological changes in the body stimulating the body's own healing ability. This aids the body to detox, de-stress and returns it to its natural balance. Having regular treatments will help keep it this way.
How will I feel after a treatment?
Following a treatment you should feel thoroughly relaxed and invigorated. You should experience calm and a feeling of well-being, as stress and tension are relieved and your blood circulation is improved, leaving all the systems of your body functioning fully and in their natural equilibrium.
It is possible you may experience mildly one or more of the following symptoms:- fatigue, muzzy head, headache, bowel movement, frequent urination, constipation, excessive perspiration, breakout of spots, emotional low. Don't be discouraged, these are positive signs and is all part of the Healing Process. Your body is starting to take control of the healing process, working hard releasing stored and unwanted toxins into the circulation. These toxins are then eliminated via the lungs, the skin, the bladder and the bowels.
Is there anything I should do between treatments?
Maintain good levels of hydration and make a note of any post treatment symptoms, and tell me about them at our next session.
Is Reflexology ticklish?
No. The way in which a professional Reflexologist holds and works the feet is with a firm pressure which is not ticklish.
What should I wear?
As I only remove your shoes and socks during the treatment, you don't need to bring any change of clothes.
What if I have a medical condition and I can't have my feet touched?
No problem, I am also trained in hand reflexology.
