What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. I work holistically with you, in conjunction with allopathic healthcare to promote better health. It is possible to use this therapy with all ages and with various ailments, a consultation would ensure suitability.
How does Reflexology help?
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better, noticing your mood and sense of wellbeing improving, however, this happens on an individual basis.
I've never had reflexology before. Does it hurt or tickle?
My treatments shouldn’t hurt, there may be some areas that you are more aware of and that could be an indication of toxins in that area that I can effectively and pleasantly work on to bring about balance again. As far as people not liking their feet being touched for feeling ticklish or a bit feet phobic, which is very common, I haven’t had anyone not be able to get into the treatment and find it wholly soothing and relaxing.
What's a typical session like?
Our first meeting we will discuss your initial reasons for coming for therapy and what you hope to achieve from our session/s. I’ll take details of your medical history and lifestyle and from there we can choose what would be most beneficial for you on that occasion. Because I offer a range of therapies there will be something that we will agree to, or maybe a combination of several therapies that would be suitable at that time.
I would allow up to 80 minutes for the first session and 60 minutes for follow ups.
How many treatments will I need?
This really would be dependant on you, what your requirements are and how you feel the treatments are benefitting you. Of course like anything, giving something a chance to work through the body and the ripple effects it can have on other areas of our wellbeing will have a more profound effect the more we do something.
Where are the treatments carried out?
I have a relaxing treatment room in my home where I carry out many of my treatments although I do offer mobile services within a reasonable distance. Please note that my treatment room is up a short flight of stairs so if you struggle with them, I can come to you.
What do I sit on?
I use a reflexology chair called a Lafuma. It looks like a sun lounger but reclines a lot more. It's very comfortable. If you are not comfortable like this we can always adapt to your preferred position, or if you are a wheelchair user treatments can be carried out from here.
What do I need to wear?
For a reflexology treatment, I only need access to your hands or feet so you'll just need to remove your shoes and socks.
How much will my treatments cost?
