Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
On the whole a treatment will be a soothing and relaxing experience, although when an area of congestion is worked upon, it can feel slightly tender, or sore. This is completely normal and referred to as a 'Healing pain'. As reflexologists we believe this is a display that the reflex is out of balance.
Do I need to undress?
No, you only need to remove your shoes and socks.
How long will it take for me to feel a difference?
Some people experience a difference straight away, with a sense of deep relaxation and a reduction in tension common. From experience, usually 4 – 6 weekly treatments will give the best results. The time can sometimes be longer or shorter depending on how long the imbalance has been present.
I have ticklish feet, can you still treat me?
I use a gentle but firm pressure on the feet so even people with ticklish feet seem to be happy to receive a treatment.
What’s the difference between Reflexology and a foot massage?
A common misconception is that Reflexology is a foot massage, this is definitely not the case. A reflexology treatment is a very specific and accurate. Although relaxing, the sensation of a Reflexology session is definitely one of a focused treatment.
