How reflexology can help you.
Will I benefit from reflexology?
As a holistic practitioner, I will support you as a whole person and promote your well-being. Reflexology acknowledges that every person is a unique individual,
it is not possible to know in advance how you will react to a treatment. However, after a treatment, people often do feel very relaxed, sleep better and notice a
feeling of improved mood and general well-being. You may find that other things improve too, this happens on an individual basis, however, I do not diagnose,
prescribe or cure. Reflexology helps us to cope on a physical, mental and emotional level, thereby encouraging us to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives.
There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology.
What happens when I go for a treatment?
On the first visit, a full medical history will be taken and you will be asked to sign a consent form agreeing to the treatment. All information will be kept confidentially. During the treatment I will use my hands to apply gentle pressure to the feet or face. The application and the effect of the therapy is unique to each person. Some areas of the feet may feel tender when pressed, but this will pass. The general experience should feel relaxing.The first treatment usually lasts up to one and half hours, the following sessions usually last 45 minutes to one hour. A course of treatment may be recommended depending on your body's needs.
How will I feel after the treatment?
After one or two treatments, most people feel an improved sense of well-being and experience a feeling of deep relaxation. Occasionally people report experiencing a mild headache, feeling tired or needing to go to the toilet more often following their treatment. These are normal reactions and should pass within 24-48 hours, this is part of the healing process.
Please note: Reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.
