Frequently Asked Questions
What to expect on the First Reflexology Treatment
I will ask you about your medical history, take your blood pressure and listen to how you are feeling.
Then I make sure you are comfortable lying on the couch and covered with a blanket. I wash your feet to prepare for the treatment.
I start by getting you to focus on your breathing and letting the tension release on the out breath.
I use warming massage to begin, then thumb pressure more firmly into the reflex points.
Most people drift in and out of deep relaxation, aware of the treatment and sense of peace.
At the end of the treatment, I give you time to wake up and have a glass of water.
After a treatment you may feel chilly and very relaxed so it's wise to be gentle with yourself.
It's also good to keep warm, drink plenty of water and plan to have a quiet time.
What to expect on the first Acupressure Treatment
I will ask you about your medical history, take your blood pressure and explain more about the treatment.
I will show you how to sit on the couch and make sure you are comfortable.
Then I start to work, massaging your back and arms through your clothes, gently assessing and asking you for feedback on how it feels and the pressure you prefer.
When your muscles relax, the arm and head rest may be adjusted to support your body as it releases the tension.
The session is ended with energising techniques, time for you to stretch have and have a glass of water.
Following a treatment you may experience tenderness so it is important to keep moving the muscles by gently stretching and drink plenty of water.
This usually reduces with further treatments when more tension is released and the condition of the muscles improves.
