  • stress
  • back pain

What happens during a treatment?

At you first appointment we will complete a consultation form to enable me to build a picture of your health and lifestyle.  This enables me to create a treatment plan which will benefit your whole body.

For foot reflexology, you will then be invited to remove your shoes and socks and relax on the treatment couch,  I will complete a visual foot analysis and then apply a reflexology balm.  I will then proceed with the reflexology treatment including lots of relaxation techniques.

For facial reflexology you will be invited to remove your shoes before laying on the couch, I will then cleanse your face before  a visual facial analysis is completed.  I will then apply a few drops of organic Rosehip or grapeseed oil. before moving onto the treatment.

Does it hurt?

The pressure used in a treatment is a definite touch and is not tickly or overly painful however if a reflex is out of balance then it may feel more sensitive.

What happens after a treatment?

Most people find reflexology very relaxing and sleep well after a treatment.  Occasionally a condition may worsen slightly for the following 24 hours as the body starts to adjust before the natural healing process begins.

It is recommended that you always drink plenty of water to assist the body in removing toxins which in turn may mean you need the toilet more frequently.

If you are concerned at any point please contact me.
