Loose, casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. You will be reclined in my reflexology chair and want to be able to relax without tight clothing or belts digging in.
Yes! Other than removing socks and shoes and rolling trousers up to the knee, your clothes remain untouched. I will also place a blanket over you so both warmth and modesty will be retained.
It shouldn’t hurt but you may feel some discomfort if I find an area that is out of balance or congested. The discomfort will only last a short time as I work through the congestion and if necessary I can move on and return to rework the area later in the treatment.
I will ask you about your medical history, lifestyle, current health and some more general information about yourself so that I can build up a holistic view of you in order to adapt the treatment to best meet your needs. Any information given will be kept strictly confidential. In some circumstances you may be asked to sign an informed consent form.
Yes, I would be happy to treat you from 14 weeks onwards but I would suggest that you consult your G.P. before commencing any treatments.
Yes, we have a number of options as to how to proceed. Firstly I should point out that reflexology is not a gentle massage, it involves various degrees of pressure and probing certain reflex points – most clients I have treated who have worried about ticklish feet have been able to settle into the treatment without any problems. However, if we find an area on the feet is just ‘too tickly to treat’ we can switch to using hand reflexology in order for you to receive a full treatment.
Unfortunately there is no single answer as everyone can react differently. However, most clients feel relaxed and calm and I often hear that they have slept well after a session. You may feel a bit ‘heady’ later on as though you are getting a cold but this will only last a short time and is a good indication that the treatment has had a positive effect and toxins are moving out of the body. I will give you some after-care advice to help maximise the treatment and suggestions as to how you might continue to work on any areas that have come to light.
No. As a reflexologist I am not able to diagnose or cure medical conditions. Your feet may indicate areas that are congested or out of balance within your body and we will be able to discuss what we find but if you have questions regarding a medical condition you should see your G.P.
