Reflexology ~ FAQ

 How many treatments will I need?

This depends on why you want reflexology but 6 sessions is usually the advised amount. I do not like to press this as a ‘necessity’ but it is usually after 6 treatments that people start to feel the real benefits that Reflexology can bring. Some people may need more than 6 treatments while some people may need less.

 How often will I need a treatment?

At the beginning of your treatments it may be best to have sessions weekly (or in some cases twice a week) so that you can begin to feel the benefits sooner. Once any health problems have eased this can be cut down to once a fortnight or once a month. I am also aware of the costs involved and so will never force this routine on my clients so I do also offer discounts on block bookings.

 Is reflexology covered through private health plans?

Most private health plans will cover some or all of your treatment costs. It is worth getting in contact with them to find out if they can help.

 Is reflexology ticklish?

Reflexology uses a firm but pleasant pressure. Even those with very ticklish feet do not find that it tickles. It is also not meant to hurt. I have had a few clients who have tried Reflexology in the past and found it to been painful and the pressure too hard. Reflexology is supposed to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience and so by being painful or ticklish the benefits of Reflexology can not be fully experienced!

 How will I feel after a treatment?

People all react differently to Reflexology. While some may find they feel re-energised and alert (like after a good nights sleep) others feel sleepy and want to rest. Some people experience headaches, an upset stomach, feel weepy or have a feeling of lethargy afterwards.  Any reactions you have should be mentioned to me at your next treatment as it allows me to know that Reflexology is working!

 Is there anyone who can’t have reflexology?

In some circumstances I may require confirmation from your General Practitioner that it is OK for you to have Reflexology treatments. This is mainly in cases such as if a client has recently had or currently has cancer, has had a recent operation, stroke or heart attack. I also do not treat ladies in their first trimester of pregnancy. If you have any questions about this, or think you may need a GP referral, please feel free to get in contact with me and we can discuss any health issues prior to your treatment. In general reflexology is available to anyone, young or old. You also do not need to have a current health issue to have a treatment, lots of people use Reflexology to pamper and relax!

What should I wear for a reflexology treatment?

Reflexology takes place while lying on a treatment couch and you only need to remove your shoes and socks. There is no requirement for any specific or loose clothing, just whatever you are comfortable in!
