What happens in a Reflexology treatment?

During your first treatment (if it is a full treatment of one hour) I will take a detailed medical history.  You will be asked questions about your health and well-being.  For the first treatment allow an extra 15 minutes for this.

If it is a taster session of half an hour – you will be asked brief questions.

Treatments are usually performed in a Lafuma chair or couch. If it is a treatment on the feet, the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks but other forms of reflexology require no removal of clothing.

I will make a visual and tactile examination of the area to be worked on before beginning the precise reflexology movements.  The movements entail using pressure from the thumb and fingers on the ‘reflexes’.  Sometimes you can feel a tingling or prickling sensation in congested areas, where crystal blockages in zones have occurred.  If this is the case, then with massage and pressure these blockages can be broken down.  This can relieve pain and will promote the body to self-heal.  Otherwise, you should feel very relaxed and sleepy.

After Care

It is suggested that after a treatment you should take it easy and preferably not drink alcohol.  It is good to drink water to flush out any toxins that might be released during the treatment.

Detoxification can accompany healing and in which case you might get symptoms of a cold, frequent bowel and urination, occasionally you might get a headache.  These symptoms usually subside after 24 hours.

You are sometimes given ‘homework’ to do on your hands.  I will show you how to do this and write/draw what needs to be done.  These are usually very simple movements.

Are there any reasons why I couldn’t have a reflexology treatment?

There are a few contraindications that will prevent you from having a treatment – if in doubt get in touch with me.

I will also, of course, check for any such issues before your first treatment.

The only way to really know if Reflexology can help you, is to try it!

Why not try a taster session (approx 30 mins) for just £25.
