What happens during my reflexology session?
Reflexology is a very easy treatment to receive; at most you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks.
At your first visit, I will ask you to sign a consent form agreeing to the treatment, as well as complete an initial client information record. All personal details disclosed, both written and verbal, will remain secure and completely confidential. Please allow up to 1hr and 15 minutes for your initial visit.
Whilst completing the client information, you may wish to soak your feet in a warm, relaxing footbath. This helps to soften the feet and prepare them for the lovely treatment to come.
I will then use my thumbs, fingers or knuckles to apply pressure to your feet or hands depending on the type of session you are receiving. Some areas of the feet or hands may feel tender when pressed, but this will pass. The session should be a calming experience, which includes a deeply relaxing foot or hand massage at the end of your treatment.
Reflexology recognises that every person is an individual and so it is impossible to know in advance how you will react to a treatment. Some people have reported feeling very relaxed during their reflexology session and may find they sleep better afterwards. You may find that other things improve too, but this is on a very individual basis.
