Reflexology is a non invasive holistic complementary health therapy that helps to restore, support and balance the whole body. All treatments are tailored to your individual specific healthcare issues/needs and takes into account your lifestyle. Treatment supports the body to heal and manage conditions as well as help with general relaxation and stress management.
Do take it easy after treatment - make sure you try and rest. Drink plenty of fluids after treatment ideally water or herbal teas. Avoid alcohol and cigarettes and minimise the intake of caffeine.
Avoid heavy meals.
Each client is an individual and will experience their Reflexology session in a different way. Your practitioner will discuss aftercare with you.
Most clients report feeling deeply relaxed and an improved sense of wellbeing afterwards.
From time to time, as the body continues to heal itself, you may have a response to treatment where the body takes a little bit longer to come back to a state of balance. This is known as a healing reaction and the following symptoms are common:
Symptoms should last no longer than 12-48 hours and some will clear up after a few hours as the body begins to rebalance itself. The practitioner will ask you on your next visit about any responses you have had, but if you are concerned about your symptoms or they get worse please contact your GP as there may be another reason that you are feeling like this.
When you come to see me for the first time, we will go through an initial health and well being consultation which takes up to 30 minutes.
This enables me to build-up a picture of your health and well being, understand your reasons for seeking a treatment and enables us to discuss a plan for the day’s treatment.
At this consultation, you will be asked to sign the relevant paperwork and a Privacy Notice.
