What happens during the treament?
It’s a holistic treatment so on a first appointment a 10 minute confidential consultation takes place to discuss your general health, lifestyle & diet. This is used to adjust the treatment for you as an individual. Once the consultation is complete, the client will be asked to remove their footwear and to lie back on a reclining reflexology chair so that the feet and ankles can be worked on. Pressure is applied to reflex areas of the feet or hands to bring about a state of deep relaxation which helps stimulate the bodies own healing processes. Within a 45 minute treatment all the reflexes are worked, some more than others depending on what the consultation highlighted as areas of the body that may be in most need. In a 30 minute treatment the majority of the reflexes will still be reached but the emphasis will again be on those that will help any conditions you are suffering with.
Generally the treatment is very relaxing and soothing but if the Reflexologist is permitted by the client to work on any problem areas there may be some discomfort.
To give you the best possible treatment a selection of waxes and creams are on available for your treatment.
How will I feel after the treatment
Most people either feel really sleepy and want to relax or feel energised. To get the most out of your treatment you should try to rest and relax, drink plenty of water, and avoid stimulants, including caffeine and alcohol, and heavy meals for the rest of the day.
How often should I have a treatment
Clients tend to book regular weekly or monthly treatments if they are looking for an improvement in an ailment or as a preventative measure. Others book for some relaxing time out from their hectic schedules as and when they feel the need. The information taken at the consultation is needed to give you advice on the best treatment plan for you.
What might prevent me from being able to have a treatment?
Reflexology does not diagnose illness and is not a medical treatment. So a Reflexologist will always advise that you see a doctor for medical check ups and treatment. Reflexology should be avoided in the first three months of pregnancy. It can also alter the amount of medication you need e.g insulin for diabetes. So, please inform your Reflexologist and see your medical practitioner before booking a treatment if you have a medical condition.
