Frequently Asked Questions
I hope this will be helpful but please contact me if you require more information or have a specific question.
What should I wear?
It is best to wear loose, comfortable clothing as you will be reclined in a Reflexology chair and it is important to be able to relax without tight clothing. You will only need to remove your shoes and socks and roll your trousers up to the knee. I will place a blanket over you and make you comfortable with any additional cushions you may require.
Will it hurt?
You may feel some discomfort or tenderness in an area that is out of balance, any felt should be within your comfort level and pressure can be altered to ensure that it is. This should only last a short time and if necessary I can move on and return to rework the area later in the treatment. Reflexology is a safe, natural therapy that helps bring the body back into balance.
What information will you need from me?
I will ask you about your medical history, lifestyle, diet and current health and some more general information so I can adapt the treatment to best meet your needs. All information is kept strictly confidential and you will be asked to sign a consent form. *
Can I have Reflexology if I’m pregnant?
Reflexology can benefit a woman at every stage of her pregnancy from conception through all three trimesters and will be tailored to the individual depending on number of weeks pregnant and any health concerns, particularly those that are pregnancy related.
If you are unsure it is always best to seek advice from your midwife or GP.
Can I still have Reflexology if I have ticklish feet?
Reflexology involves varying degrees of pressure on certain reflex points and most clients who have been worried about this have found themselves settling quickly into the treatment without any problems. If an area of the feet is too ticklish then we can switch to using the hand Reflexology in order for you to receive a full treatment.
How will I feel afterwards?
There is no single answer as everyone can react differently. However, most clients feel relaxed and calm commenting they enjoyed a good nights sleep after the session. You may experience a slight headache or increased toilet visits but this will only last a short time and is a good indication that the treatment has had a positive effect and toxins are being released from the body. I will give you aftercare advise and in certain cases, where appropriate, show you how to continue to work on any areas that may be of benefit.
Can you diagnose what is wrong me?
As a Reflexologist I do not diagnose or claim to cure medical conditions. Your feet may indicate areas that are congested or out of balance within your body and we can discuss this after your treatment. If you have any questions regarding a medical condition you should see your G.P.
