What Happens In a Reflexology Session?
During the first session I will ask you some questions about your medical history, lifestyle and health. I will use this to help decide which areas on your feet to treat. You will be asked to take off your shoes and socks and sit in a reclining chair, or lay on a treatment table so I can examine and treat your feet. I will start by gently massaging your foot to help you relax. Then I use my fingers and thumbs to apply presure to specific points of the feet. I use oils or lotions to lubricate the skin and may add aromatherapy oils. Pressure in some areas may feel sensitive or uncomfortable, but should not be painful. Reflexology sessions are usually 30 minutes to an hour long. Please allow 15 mins extra for first consultation.
