What happens when I go for a treatment?

The first treatment involves a consultation including a full medical history and any medication you may be taking. We will discuss any social, lifestyle and environmental factors that may be affecting your wellbeing and consider what you would like reflexology to help with. Before the treatment begins you will be asked to sign a consent form and this information and anything discussed throughout the course of your treatment, will be kept confidential.


Once this is completed you will receive a full investigatory foot or facial reflexology treatment whereby all bodily systems are covered in order to establish if there are any imbalances which will help us devise a suitable treatment plan.

The effects of reflexology are cumulative and often the full effects are best seen after 4-6 sessions, however there are no hard and fast rules in terms of what your follow up treatment will entail and it will depend on you and your specific needs. Some people only require one session to help them get back on track, others will need more.


As a general rule, for specific issues, four weekly or fortnightly treatments are recommended, and as you start to feel better we can start to increase the time between treatments. You will be the best judge and we will review this on a regular basis. but typically, people come monthly for a 'top-up'.


Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive and the most clothing that will have to be removed will be your shoes and socks! You may feel areas of transient discomfort during the treatment but generally, the experience is a relaxing one.

Please refer to the Reflexology and Water page to see the importance of drinking plenty of water before and after a reflexology treatment.
