What to expect when you come for treatment

Your initial visit will take up to an hour and a half and consists of a personal and medical consultation covering your family history, lifestyle, systems functions (e.g. sleep, appetite) and full details of your current complaint/s and any test or investigations that you have had. You will also have the opportunity to discuss in complete confidence any concerns or troubles you may currently be dealing with. After your consultation I will carry out a detailed examination of your feet, before embarking on your first treatment. Subsequent appointments take up to an hour, and include discussion of your progress and your treatment to date. A course of treatment is often recommended, depending on your body’s needs.

Treatment is given with the patient lying in a comfortable reclining chair, with the offer of a blanket as body temperature tends to drop during treatment.

How will I feel after treatment?

Most people walk away feeling deeply relaxed and rejuvenated, with an enhanced feeling of well-being. However, reflexology can provoke a short-lived ‘healing reaction’ as the body rids itself of toxins. This may be in the form of a temporary worsening of symptoms, lethargy, tears, etc. This should be viewed positively and can represent an important turning point for the patient.
