What to expect at your first treatment
Reflexology is a very easy treatment to receive; at most you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks. 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. I will use my thumbs, fingers or knuckles to apply pressure to the feet. Some areas of the feet may feel tender when pressed, but this will pass and the general feeling should be relaxing. I'll talk to you after your treatment about what you felt and recommend any further treatments along with providing you with any aftercare advice.
How will I feel after the treatment?
After one or two treatments, most people feel an improved sense of wellbeing and experience a deep feeling of 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. Reflexologists believe this is part of the healing process.
