Everyone including the young, elderly, sick or stressed can benefit and enjoy the deep relaxation that reflexology brings about, but you don’t have to be unwell to benefit – some people simply like to enjoy a treatment once in a while as a way to unwind and feel pampered.
As a professional reflexologist, I do not claim to 'treat or cure' specific illness, however I do treat the whole person aiming for
Release of tension
In treating someone holistially by helping in these areas I can help them to cope with their illness or problem and this can realistically reduce symptoms.
What to expect
During an initial consultation we will discuss your needs and I will ask you for information that will help me to formulate a treatment plan with you.
Most people enjoy being covered in a fleecy blanket with just their feet uncovered and soon find themselves drifting off during the treatment. My heated underblanket will keep you cosy in the cold months and the well insulated cabin is shaded by trees in the summer, making it a totally blissful experience at any time of the year.
A session will last for 1 hour from start to finish including a few minutes consultation time (plus add up to 20 minutes for the first consultation).
The treatment starts with a 'warm up' which feels like a nice foot massage, and I then work on a sequence using light pressure and other techniques covering all the foot reflexes. It is pleasant and relaxing and sometimes people fall asleep while others prefer to chat and ask about the treatment. Afterwards we will discuss any aftercare that may be relevant.
I may ask some clients to seek medical advice prior to treatment if there are any concerns about the suitability of reflexology for an individual, as reflexology is not a substitute for conventional medical treatment where that is required.
It is important for clients to understand that a professional reflexologist, does not diagnose or claim to cure illness – our aim is to assist the body to rebalance, encouraging self-healing to take place
