FAQ's

  • What is Reflexology?
    What is Reflexology?

    Reflexology is a complementary health therapy involving the application of pressure to specific points on the feet, hands and face.

    Reflexologists use specific thumb, finger, and hand massage techniques to manipulate reflex areas in the feet, hands, or face that correspond to all organs, glands, and parts of your body.

    By stimulating these reflexes, the blood and nerve supply is increased to where the body needs it most.

    Reflexology is not the same as a foot, face or hand massage. Nor is it a substitute for conventional medical treatment.

  • How does reflexology work?
    How does reflexology work?

    Reflexology will bring your body back into balance.

    There are thousands of nerve endings in your feet, hands, face, which correspond to and send messages about specific parts of the body to and from your brain.

    Through reflexology, any blockages in nerve and/or blood supply can be released, and your circulation is boosted which enables your body to heal itself.

  • What to expect during a Reflexology treatment?
    What to expect during a Reflexology treatment?

    The first initial treatment is usually the longest as this involves a full consultation including health, medical history and lifestyle. I will freshen up and look at your feet, hands or face whichever area we are working on, to examine colour, temperature, texture before beginning your treatment., cleanse them, relax them and then start the treatment. The most important thing is for you is to simply relax on the therapy bed which can be laid flat or raised up, listen to the relaxation music and enjoy your treatment.

    After initial examination and treatment, I will be able to discuss my findings and advise you how many treatments you are likely to need. These will need to be spread over a number of weeks to enable the body to heal itself effectively and each treatment will be around an hour in length.

  • Who is Reflexology for?
    Who is Reflexology for?

    Reflexology helps maintain and restore health and is a safe, natural and gentle therapy that can be used on anybody. It can benefit men, women, young people, children and babies of all ages and, depending on the length of time a condition has been present, may improve or eliminate many ailments during the course of the treatment plan.

  • Are there any side effects of Reflexology Treatments?
    Are there any side effects of Reflexology Treatments?

    As Reflexology is not intrusive, there are very few side effects to treatment. Most people feel very relaxed or sleepy and enjoy a good night’s sleep, though some are highly alert and refreshed and full of energy. A common side effect is an increased number of visits to the toilet as Reflexology encourages the elimination of toxins from the body.

  • How many treatments will I need?
    How many treatments will I need?

    After initial Reflexology consultation and treatment, your therapist will advise how many sessions may be required. The number of treatments you will need depends on your ailment or condition, how long you have had it and what you are hoping to achieve.

    However, the frequency of treatments is entirely up to you, finances, commitments and your own personal preference.

  • Can a reflexologist diagnose my ailments?
    Can a reflexologist diagnose my ailments?

    No. Reflexologists are not medically trained. If you are feeling unwell you should seek advice from a medical expert.

    Reflexology treatments can help with certain ailments and conditions once they are diagnosed.

    Please note that reflexology is a complementary health therapy. It works alongside conventional medicine and shouldn’t be used on its own as an alternative.

  • What should I do before a treatment?
    What should I do before a treatment?

    It is a good idea not to eat a heavy meal less than an hour before your treatment. Drinking alcohol before attending your appointment is not advised either.

    Other than that, there is nothing else to do before taking your treatment.

    How will I feel after my treatment?

    Most people feel the benefit both during and after their first treatment.

    However, for more longstanding issues it may take a few treatments for you to notice the improvement in your wellbeing.

  • What should I wear for my reflexology session?
    What should I wear for my reflexology session?

    Wear comfortable clothing to your reflexology session.

    You will be lying on a reclining bed or a chair if you prefer, so you will want to feel relaxed.

    Depending on the season, my bed is heated and I can provide blankets or thin sheets to cover you if you prefer.

    During the reflexology session itself, only your feet, ankles, calves, will be exposed or hands/face depending which area we are working on.
