What to Expect

When you first come for a reflexology treatment we will spend some time getting to know you and finding out about your previous medical history, diet and lifestyle. This will involve finding out about any medication that you take, recent operations and illnesses and your reasons for trying reflexology.

The treatment takes place in a specially designed reclining chair, and we always make sure you are warm and comfortable as you might well get quite cold once you begin to relax. A full foot reflexology treatment will generally last between 45 - 60 minutes, depending on what we find in your feet.

We will give your feet a gentle clean with a wet wipe, then begin with some general relaxation techniques to ease your foot and ankle. This is followed by a precise thumb and finger walking technique, which applies pressure to every reflex area on the top and bottom of the foot. We will usually work on one foot at a time and may revisit certain areas repeatedly to help balance particular reflexes. The pressure should be firm but not painful.

After your treatment you should drink plenty of fresh water to help flush toxins from your body. It is also probably better that you avoid excess alcohol or a heavy meal immediately after the session, as you need to give your body time to assimilate the treatment.

Some people worry about having their feet touched, but we use a firm pressure which is very relaxing and not at all ticklish. If a particular part of the body is out of balance, the corresponding reflex may feel a little bit tender during the treatment. It is important that you let us know so that we can work to relieve this discomfort. Generally people describe any areas of tenderness as a ‘good pain’ which is both bearable and beneficial.
