What happens during a reflexology session?Reflexology
On your first visit you will be asked to fill out a health record. This will include questions about your past medical history, your lifestyle and emotional state. This is to make sure I have a full picture of your general health.
You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and sit and relax in a semi-reclining chair. Soft music and candles help to enhance your relaxation.
Your session should last approximately one hour. The length of the session and amount of pressure applied is tailored to suit your state of health. The pressure used will be firm so it will not tickle. It should feel very pleasant and relaxing. At times there may be pain or tenderness in certain areas of the foot, which may be due to a number of reasons. The reflexologist always works within the client's comfort level.
When the body is deeply relaxed your temperature drops so a soft, comfortable blanket is provided. Some clients feel a tingling sensation in certain areas of the body. During the session you may be so relaxed you fall asleep.
