Using a specific thumb or finger pressure technique on precise reflex points on the feet or hands is based on the premise that reflex areas correspond to all body parts.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At the first appointment we will complete a medical history form and then the session will continue in silence with light music as you relax your way through the next hour.
After a reflexology session, it is common for your feet to feel warm and relaxed. You may feel sleepy or energized. Your body may feel hot or even shivery as your blood pressure changes when you are relaxed or revitalized.
Occasionally, you may experience reactions when the body begins its self-healing process and elimination of toxins. These reactions may include:
Frequent visits to the toilet to enable the body to get rid of waste.
Runny nose and/or cough as the body rids itself of toxins.
Slight rash as the skin re-balances and rids itself of toxins.
Perspiration - another way that the body can excrete waste.
Conditions which have been suppressed may flare up temporarily before they heal.
Deep sleep or difficulty sleeping and vivid dreams.
These reactions are only temporary and should clear within 24 hours. They are positive signals that your body has responded to reflexology and is balancing itself. If reactions do not subside after 24 hours please contact me and we may be able to organize a short session to help relieve the reactions.
After a session, do take time to relax and benefit from the session, try to avoid alcohol for 24 hours as the reflexology could speed up the effect that this stimulant has on the body.
It is also recommended that you try to reduce your caffeine intake (including sodas) and eat light, healthy meals.
This session is fully clothed with only socks and shoes being removed, clients are asked to come with washed feet, however a cleaning preparation will be used before the session has started.
