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.
Please refer to my fee information below. 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 in cash, card or by bank transfer.
Reflexologists cannot 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.
Reflexology is performed entirely on the feet, ankles and hands, so the most you’ll have to do is take off your socks and roll up your trousers! During the treatment the client lies on their back on a reclining chair, supported by pillows and covered with a soft blanket to keep them 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.
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.
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.
