What to expect when
coming for a treatment
On your first visit I will talk to
you about your lifestyle, diet and medical history.
I will note this down so that I can remember everything
about you that we have discussed. It might come up in later treatments to mean more than you thought.
I will invite you to remove your footwear and
socks and sit back in the chair, so that you can lean
back while I work on your feet.
I will introduce massage techniques
to your feet, noting any problem areas. A qualified Reflexologist can identify problem areas
as tender or "crunchy" reflex points on corresponding
parts of the feet and hands. By applying firm but comfortable
pressure to these areas congestion can be unblocked,
setting the body's own healing mechanism in motion.
This enables your body to return to a state of balance.
The treatment is deeply relaxing and is designed not to be ticklish. You therapist may note the condition of your feet but it's never something you should be embarrassed about.
The appointment can last from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on what you book for. Your first visit with me is 1 hour which includes any discussion or consultations.
After the first treatment or two your body may respond in a very definite way: you may have a feeling of well-being and relaxation; or you may feel lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory. It is, however, vital information for Reflexologist's, as it shows how your body is responding to treatment.
