The Reflexology treatment begins with a consultation discussing brief health history, lifestyle, your reasons for choosing Reflexology and what you would like to achieve from the treatment .
I will explain how reflexology works and what to expect in the session.
Please note Reflexology does not treat specific illnesses and is not a substitute for medical treatment.
To begin the treatment, you will lie or sit down on the beauty couch remaining fully clothed except for your shoes and socks. With the option of a heated under blanket and also an over blanket for comfort.
Generally a treatment lasts 45 minutes. You can rest or talk during the session at your discretion. If you fall asleep during the session, you will still receive the benefits of the treatment.
A complete reflexology therapy session uses many different techniques and includes all of the points on both feet to release congestion and promotes the relaxation response for the entire body.
The goal is to bring the whole body into balance, easing symptoms. If I discover an area of congestion or tightness during the session, I will apply pressure to work on bringing the body back into balance.
Experiences with reflexology sessions vary from a general feeling of relaxation, to a sense of "lightness" or tingling in the body, as well as feelings of warmth, a sense of "opening," or "energy moving". There is often a physical perception of energy flowing through every organ, valve, gland, or muscle, as well as a sense of communication between each body system.
At the end of the session you should not feel rushed, gently bring yourself back into the present moment, and orient yourself.
I may recommend that you drink water, rest if necessary, and pay attention to your body in the next few hours. If any questions or concerns arise, please let me know.
After the treatment various reactions may occur following a reflexology session. These, too, are subtle, and are often not recognised by many people as a result of the reflexology therapy. Many of the reactions are positive signs that the session is part of a healing process; other symptoms are indicative of the body's attempts to return to a state of balance and harmony. Symptoms usually last for 24-48 hours.
The number of sessions varies and is determined by the your health and reasons for seeking reflexology. But in general, results from reflexology are often subtle and are cumulative. Thus, you are more likely to see greater benefits from regular sessions (for example, once a week for six weeks) than if you had a session once every six months.
If you are dealing with a specific illness or condition, you may need to have more frequent sessions. A general recommendation might be to begin with a session every week for 6-8 weeks, followed by a "tune-up" every four weeks.
