Prior to your first treatment, I will conduct a health and lifestyle consultation lasting around 30-minutes which will include your medical history detailing your past or present conditions and also allow me to gain a sense of what your overall hopes are from your treatment. It will also highlight any contraindications. All information provided will be confidential.
I will also explain a bit about how reflexology works, its benefits, what healing reaction you might encounter and how the treatments will be carried out.
How the treatment begins
I will ask you to make yourself comfortable on the reflexology chair (removing only your footwear if its foot reflexology being performed). Once you are warm and comfortable, I will arrange to have some relaxing music playing in the background, adjust the lighting and ask you to close your eyes and quieten your mind. I will then begin the treatment by refreshing your feet/hands, and taking a foot/hands assessment. This is simply just to look at the colour, temperature, tone, and flexibility of your feet/hands. I will then moisturise both feet/hands using an organic, vegan-friendly cream and perform a short massage on each foot/hand to warm and loosen the tension in your feet and ankles/ hands and wrists and to encourage relaxation. I will then begin the reflexology treatment where firm but gentle pressure will be applied to the feet or hands ensuring the pressure applied is comfortable as some reflex points might be tender or painful when stimulated which could indicate an imbalance or issue in the body. The reflexologist will adjust the pressure applied in every instance.
After the treatments clients report feeling a deep state of relaxation and overall sense of wellbeing (see what people are saying here)
