What happens during the treatment?
In the initial session, we will discuss your medical history and take time to talk about you, so that treatment can be tailored to your needs. This initial consultation will take about 20-30 mins. If you decide to arrange future appointments, we will have a brief chat to update before starting each treatment.
I will cleanse and massage your feet to help you feel relaxed and used to having your feet touched. I will then work on each foot individually, supporting each reflex point, applying pressure in a soothing motion. I will end the session with a nurturing foot massage. The treatment will last about between 45 minutes and 1 hour, with time allowed to discuss your aftercare, to help you get the most from your treatment. The effect of reflexology is cumulative and it may take a few sessions to gain full benefit.
Preparing yourself for reflexology at home
It is good to prepare yourself and your home space for the reflexology session, a few simple steps will help you get the most benefit from your treatment.
Allow yourself plenty of time, so you are not rushed, before or after treatment.
Take time to sit and relax; ready to give your focus to the session.
Aim to limit interruptions and distractions - turn off your phone etc
Allocate a quiet space in your home and advise family not to disturb you.
If you have pets, ensure they are calm and happy, so that you can relax too.
I will bring most of what we will need, including a reflexology treatment chair; a recliner chair similar to a sun lounger. The chair requires about 5' by 3' of space and will fit into most living rooms. Please let me know if you feel there won't be enough room for the chair; we can discuss other options. A recliner chair may not be suitable for everyone. If you would prefer, we can look at providing treatment on a couch, chair or bed. The weight limit for the treatment chair is 140 kg.
You will need to provide a pillow, towel and a small face towel
You may wish to listen to relaxing music during the treatment
It is always lovely to have your favourite blanket or throw to cover you
