How long will a treatment take?
Treatments generally take an hour. Your first treatment which will begin with a detailed consultation to establish any particular concerns or symptoms you may have. Treatments are carried out on a couch and you will need to remove your shoes and socks if you are having reflexology on your feet. If you are having facial reflexology there is no need to remove your makeup as I will cleanse the face before starting your treatment.
You will be covered with a blanket as you may find your body temperature lowers whilst you are relaxing.
Do I have to wash my feet before coming?
No, please don't worry about that. I use heated towels to cleanse either your feet or face prior to working on them.
Will the treatment be painful?
Reflexology should not be painful however where there is congestion on the feet you may feel some discomfort as this congestion is worked out.
By focusing on specific reflex points healing will be stimulated leaving you feeling deeply relaxed and replenished.
What do I do after my treatment?
To gain full benefit from your restorative treatment I recommend clients ensure they do as little as possible afterwards! Drinking plenty of water helps to flush out toxins and it's best to avoid stimulants such as cigarettes, tea, coffee & alcohol for at least the rest of the day.
How soon will I notice an improvement in my symptoms?
Most people find they feel calm & relaxed after a reflexology treatment and that their sleeping improves. Other clients report they have felt an increase in energy levels that has lasted several days after treatment.
For general health issues you should allow at least 4 reflexology sessions to see whether your condition improves. Some conditions may require a more intensive course of treatments and this will be discussed at your initial consultation. As a general rule the longer you have had a health complaint, the longer it may take for your body to heal itself.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy which rebalances your mind, body & soul. You may find that by taking an hour for yourself regularly improves your health and you may find that you start to take positive steps towards improving your own health & vitality by making small changes to your diet & lifestyle.
I have a private health cash plan can I use this for my reflexology treatments?
Yes reflexology sessions are covered by several health cash plan providers: Westfield Health, Health Shield and Simplyhealth.
However, please check with your provider that reflexology is included on your plan before booking an appointment.
