What can I expect from a Reflexology session?
The first session starts with a consultation where we will discuss your medical history, your reasons for Reflexology, and some diet and lifestyle questions. The treatment itself will be focused on your feet, so you will just have to remove your socks or tights. For mobile treatments you can sit on a sofa with your feet up or lie down on a sofa or bed. For clinic treatments you will usually sit on a special reflexology chair called a lafuma or lie on a massage table. During the treatment the reflexologist will apply pressure to different points of your feet one at a time. At the end of the session the reflexologist will discuss what she found.
How will I feel during a reflexology session?
A reflexology session is usually very relaxing – many clients fall asleep during a treatment
How will I feel after a reflexology session?
Reflexology can affect people differently - Most people tend to feel relaxed and sleepy after a reflexology session. Other people may feel energised or emotional. As with other complementary therapies it may be that your condition gets worse before it gets better - This is very normal and part of the body’s healing process. Always discuss any concerns you have with your Reflexologist.
How many treatments will I need? How often?
You can discuss a treatment plan together with your reflexologist – each plan will be tailored to each individual depending on reasons for reflexology, availability, affordability and ultimately what they want to get out of the reflexology.
As a rough guide :
For chronic/long term conditions once every week or every 2 weeks
For acute conditions (eg bringing on labour) could be daily or every few days for that period of time
Once a month or less frequently can work for some people if they just feel a bit imbalanced or stressed
Once off treatments are really enjoyable as well!
Can reflexology tell me whats wrong with me?
Reflexology is not used to diagnose conditions – you should always seek medical advise and see your GP or a specialist to get a diagnosis
