Frequently Asked Questions
It is a safe & effective way to better your health. A non-intrusive treatment personalised to your own specific needs.
Remember you are worth it & where else would you get over an hours relaxation time with no interruptions?
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME FOR THE TREATMENT?
Just a note of any medication you’re currently taking would be useful. I have everything in my Treatment Room to help make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE TREATMENT & HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
You will relax in a comfortable reclining chair, a blanket is made available to keep you lovely and warm. Soft, calming music will play and the scent of relaxing essential oils will fill the room. You will need to remove your socks and shoes as the treatment is carried out on bare feet.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO HAVE A TREATMENT?
That is for you to decide. Some people like to have weekly treatments to start with, then change to every fortnight or once a month. It is a flexible treatment, so whatever is best for you.
CAN REFLEXOLOGY BE TICKLISH OR COULD I FEEL SOME DISCOMFORT?
I may find a tender area on your foot that could possibly indicate some congestion, I will gently work through any tender areas found. Generally people don’t find Reflexology ticklish nor experience any discomfort. I will work with a pressure that is comfortable for you.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I FALL ASLEEP?
A lot of clients find the treatment so relaxing, they often drift in and out of sleep. This is quite normal. This is time for you, so simply lay back, relax and enjoy the benefits of Reflexology.
IS REFLEXOLOGY FOR EVERYONE?
Most people can have Reflexology but there are a few medical conditions where it would be unwise to have the treatment. Some examples but not conclusive
DVT - Deep Vein Thrombosis
Warfarin – Or other blood thinning medication
Diabetic – Only if not yet stabilised
The general rule is if you have a condition that is being levelled by your GP or Consultant make sure your therapist is aware and can get expert advice on when safe to treat
