Is Reflexology safe?
Yes. Professionally trained practitioners have the knowledge and skills to work with people of all ages, from newborn babies to the elderly, including the provision of professional reflexology during pregnancy, chemotherapy and palliative care. Please see the relevant registering or training body website for further details: International Institute of Reflexology (IIR) and the Association of Reflexologists (AOR)

Is Reflexology painful?
Reflexology can be extremely relaxing, however if there is a part of the body that is unbalanced, the corresponding reflex point may feel sore or tender whilst the practitioner works to rebalance the area. If at any time you find the treatment painful, please tell us, as it is important that we work within your comfort-zone.

What should I wear?
It is best to wear lose comfortable clothing so that you feel relaxed. The only clothing to be removed is socks or tights and your shoes.

Do you store any information about me?
We might make notes following your session so that improvements can be noted at future appointments. All information recorded will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act and will remain totally confidential.

How often should I have Reflexology?
It's generally recommended that you have 4-6 weekly treatments initially, although reflexology is safe to have more frequently if required. Treatments provided for small children or anyone seriously ill may be shorter and more frequent. With all appointments, we will customise the treatment plan to meet your needs.

How will I feel after a treatment?
Most people feel relaxed, energised and balanced. Sometimes after the first couple of treatments you might find you feel slightly unwell or your symptoms have got a little worse. This is just a temporary state, often called a ‘healing crisis’, which occurs while your body starts to adjust and rebalance itself. It's important to drink plenty of fresh water and rest as much as you can. Please let us know if this happens to you as it helps us gauge how your body is responding to the treatment.

Will a Reflexologist remove hard skin and cut my nails too?
No. Unless the practitioner holds a professional Chiropody qualification they will not be permitted to carry out any such work.
