What can I expect from my Reflexology treatment?
Treatments are provided in my peaceful, private and relaxing treatment room in Waterloo.
Alternatively I also offer a Mobile Service which enables you to enjoy a relaxing Reflexology treatment in the comfort of your own home.
This is especially helpful for elderly or disabled clients who are unable to travel.
Pre-treatment consultation (20-30 minutes)
Before your first treatment, I will carry out a consultation and talk to you about your lifestyle and request your full medical history; this is so I can tailor your treatment to meet your requirements. I will also need to check that you have no contraindications to treatment.
You will then be asked to sign a consent form for treatment.
I am a naturally warm, friendly and caring lady and my consultations and treatments are carried out professionally, sensitively and confidentially.
Your Treatment (50 minutes)
Reflexology is a very easy treatment to receive and you will only be required to remove your shoes and socks/tights; you will either lie comfortably on a massage couch or in a comfortable reclining chair, whichever you prefer.
I will start by lightly cleansing and refreshing your feet and then the treatment will begin with gentle relaxing massage techniques followed by your Reflexology treatment where I will apply pressure, using my thumbs,fingers or knuckles to specific points of your feet.
Some areas on the feet may feel tender when pressed, but this will pass and the whole experience is likely to be extremely relaxing and pleasant. Any discomfort is usually short term and an indication of congestion.
After the treatment I will discuss my findings with you and may recommend further treatments or advice to help improve your health and wellbeing.
How will I feel after my treatment?
After a Reflexology treatment most people feel very relaxed and experience an improved sense of mood and general well-being which lasts well after the treatment ends; you may also sleep better.
Occasionally people feel tired, have a mild headache, may need to go to the toilet more often or feel emotional; these are normal reactions to the treatment and a positive sign that the body is starting it's healing process; any of these symptoms should pass within 24 hours.
It is important to drink plenty of water after your treatment to help flush out waste products from the body; also try to rest to allow the body time for self healing and avoid stimulants such as tea, coffee and alcohol.
