Frequently asked questions

How many treatments will I need?

Everyone is different and the response to reflexology can be immediate or sometimes take longer than one appointment, but often benefits can be seen after 4-5 sessions. Regular weekly treatments are best for the body properly beginning the self-healing process, and following an initial consultation I will suggest the number of Reflexology sessions I think we should undertake.

What are your prices and availability?

Please refer to my pricing and hours page for details. I also provide a limited number of appointments for those on low-incomes; contact me to enquire about availability.

Please note that if you want to cancel an appointment I require 24 hours’ notice; otherwise you may still need to pay for any sessions missed. I accept payment by card or bank transfer.

Can you diagnose my health problems?

Reflexologists do not claim to diagnose or cure, but during a treatment we get 'feedback' as to which parts of the body are working well and which are not. Sometimes reflexology will highlight a specific area which is struggling or working hard to maintain your wellbeing; if a particular reflex point shows this kind of reaction I'll discuss it with you at the end of the session.

What happens in a treatment? Do I need to undress?

Foot reflexology is performed entirely on the feet, ankles and calves, so the most you’ll have to do is take off your socks and roll up your trousers! There is also no need to remove any clothing for facial reflexology either.

During the treatment you will sit or lie on my comfortable massage couch, supported by pillows and covered with a soft blanket to keep you warm.

And don’t worry - reflexology doesn't tickle! Many clients come to me with ticklish feet or worried about their feet being touched, but find they can relax and enjoy the benefits of reflexology.

Does reflexology hurt?

You might find some areas feel sensitive to the touch, but reflexology does not involve hard pressing in the way something like a sports massage might. As a therapist I will be aware of the status of your feet, noticing how they feel, the temperature and colour. All these things play a part in understanding which areas of your body - as reflected through your feet - require a bit more care and attention.

Should I keep on having Reflexology?

Not necessarily, but after an initial course of treatment many people choose to check in monthly for a top-up, to help maintain their general wellbeing, or as a scheduled 'de-stress'. Other clients will get back in touch if they start feeling they might benefit from further sessions, arranging treatments as and when they need them.
