When choosing a therapist, you want to be sure you’re choosing one that you can fully trust to answer all of your questions and concerns. I provide easy-to-understand guides on some of the most common questions and concerns I receive. Below, you’ll will find a list of some frequently asked questions from my clients. Connect with me today for more information.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR ?
Loose, casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. Your treatment will begin with a relaxing leg massage whist lying on the massage table. Other than removing socks and shoes and rolling trousers up to the knee, your clothes remain untouched. I will also place a blanket over you so both warmth and modesty will be retained.
WHAT WILL MY FIRST SESSION BE LIKE?
Before we begin I will ask you to complete a simple medical history form and have a chat about what brings you to the appointment. There will be gentle music playing in the background and you will usually be lying down or in a reclining position. It’s fine to talk during the session and if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask them. However, you may relax more with a comfortable silence. You might in fact fall asleep which is absolutely fine and a good sign that you’re very relaxed!During the session I will be applying pressure to the reflex points using specific finger, thumb and hand techniques. It will be a firm pressure but should not hurt. If you do experience any discomfort please let me know in order that I can adjust the pressure to suit you. I may take notes during the session and may return several times to areas I believe require extra attention.
I HAVE TICKLISH FEET, CAN I STILL HAVE REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is not a ticklish massage, it involves various degrees of pressure on certain reflex points – most clients I have treated who have worried about ticklish feet have been able to settle into the treatment without any problems. However, if we find an area on the feet is just ‘too tickly to treat’ we can switch to using hand reflexology in order for you to receive a full treatment.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may help bring some relief from the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. After having completed a course of reflexology treatments for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to maintain health and well-being. Whilst many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress, at the same time many doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy.
