What happens during my treatment

On my first visit a consultation form will be completed. This will cover your personal details, medical history, lifestyle and what you hope to achieve from your treatment.

You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and seated on a recliner chair. I will examine your feet before commencing with a massage to help you relax and loosen your feet. I will then follow with a more precise massage movement using my thumbs and fingers and work all the reflex areas on both feet.

Areas corresponding to parts of the body which are out of balance may feel uncomfortable or tender and the degree of tenderness will indicate the degree of imbalance. The sensitivity of the feet varies from person to person but should not be too uncomfortable.

The full treatment session will last approximately three-quarters of an hour to an hour and at the end of a session your feet should feel warm and you should feel very relaxed.

After a treatment

Various reactions may occur following a reflexology session. These are normally subtle, and are often not recognized by many people as a result of the reflexology. Many of the reactions are positive signs that the session is part of a healing process; other symptoms are indicative of the body's attempts to return to a state of balance and harmony. Symptoms usually last for 24-48 hours. Clients are encouraged to drink more water, avoid a heavy meal and rest.

How often should I have a treatment?

The number of sessions varies and is determined by your health and reasons for seeking reflexology. But in general, results from reflexology are often subtle and are cumulative. Thus, you are more likely to see greater benefits from regular sessions (for example, once a week for six weeks) than if you had a session once every six months.

If you are dealing with a specific illness or condition, you may need to have more frequent sessions. A general recommendation might be to begin with a session every week for 6-8 weeks, followed by a "tune-up" every four weeks.
