Frequently asked questions
What to expect on the first visit?
The reflexologist will ask a series of questions about a persons medical and emotional history, what illnesses or disease's have been diagnosed, and what vitamins, herbs and medications are being ingested.
These will all influence a reflexology session.
Diabetics, people with osteoporosis and other ailments will need to be handled differently.
What if I am ticklish or my feet are sensitive?
Reflexologists are trained to work with pressure points so that it does not feel like you are being tickled.
There is a small amount of pressure maintained however; this can be changed as per the clients request.
What to expect on the Initial Session
After you take your shoes and socks off, you will relax in a reclining chair. The Reflexologist will begin with a series of relaxation techniques through flexing and similar motions.
Minor sensations may be felt throughout the session.
Regardless of the reason why you are having a reflexology session for the first time, you will find the session quite relaxing and generally people fall asleep.

How many sessions should a person have?
It is recommended to have a minimum of 3 sessions but it all depends on the person and their circumstances. A minimum of 3 sessions allows the body to eliminate any toxins that have built up and allowing the circulation to move freely throughout the muscles and organs.
Clients have shown significant improvement to muscle and minor aches and pains within the first or second session. Deeper issues such as stomach or gut issues often take more sessions.
How often should a person have Reflexology?
How often a person should have reflexology is dependent on the reason for attending in the first place.
Clients often show signs of improvement after the intial 3 sessions (often a week apart) and find that coming every 2 weeks allows the body to heal any deeper issues that they may be experiencing.
For those who are wanting to ensure a healthy body, often come to reflexology every 3 weeks for general overall maintenance.
