Riviera ReflexologyBarton and Torquay

Typical Reflexology Session

A reflexology session normally lasts for approximately 55 minutes, but this can vary slightly depending on the specific needs of the client.

For your first visit please allow approximately 90 minutes, as a detailed assessment is required which will include a comprehensive client medical history to assess each individuals suitability for treatment. I will discuss with you any side affects and answer any questions you may have about your treatments.
This consultation will give me the information I need to work with you, and help me decide on the best treatment plan for you.

Your Responsibility:

As a client it will be your responsibility to come with clean washed feet. You will need to remove your socks and shoes prior to your treatment. You will be comfortably seated in a special reclining chair for your treatment. Please don't feel that you need to have a pedicure before your visit and don't be embarrased about your feet.

Typical Session. Garden Studio

Before the sessions I will clean your feet with wipes.. Following this I will assess your feet for any foot conditions such as colour, scars, lines and puffiness. These will enable me to get an idea of areas of imbalance in your body. I will then work on your feet one foot at a time. The resting foot will be wrapped in a towel to keep warm while the other foot receives treatment.

Your treatment will begin with a gentle massage followed by gentle pressure to the reflex points of the feet. This should not be painful, but some reflex points may be sensitive due to the imbalance in the body’s energy.
After the session, I will be making note of any tender reflex or areas of sensitivity you felt during the treatment.

After the treatment, you may feel calm, relaxed or even sleepy. Others may feel energized and rejuvenated. Different people respond differently to the treatment. You are encouraged to drink a glass of water to help flush out any toxins.

All treatments are conducted in a peaceful and relaxing room. Soothing music can be enjoyed during the treatment to promote peace and tranquility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Reflexology Suitable For Me
Reflexology is a holistic therapy and in certain specific circumstances is not an appropriate treatment. Some people find that one treatment is enough to help them with a particular problem, for others, additional treatments may be necessary. Reflexology can aid self-awareness allowing greater control of one`s well-being. Not everyone will benefit from reflexology, we are all individuals and as such respond to treatments differently.

Will It Hurt
While the feet are being worked there may be some discomfort experienced, but this is an indication of imbalance within the body, by working a particular reflex any discomfort will hopefully ease and in turn the body can begin to heal itself.

How Long Does a Treatment Last
A Reflexology Treatment normally lasts between 50 to 60 minutes, dependant on the specific needs of the client.

How Many Treatments Will I Need
The course of treatment varies with every client depending on the condition, the symptoms experienced and how well the clients body responds to the treatment. Initially I would expect to treat the client with one reflexology treatment every week for up to four weeks. Further treatments are then tailored to individual requirements.

Do You Need To See Us Both
In an ideal world, I would very much like to see both partners for an initial consultation prior to treatment. I know this is not always possible and i am happy to treat either or both of you. urther treatments are then tailored.

Can You Help If We Are Having Assisted Conception
Many clients seek fertility treatment with conventional medical practitioners. As a serene therapist I am able to work in ways to enhance their therapies and boost the chances of success using your body’s own mechanisms.

Can I Bring Someone With Me To My Appointment
You are welcome to bring along a partner or friend to the appointment for support, but unfortunately they will not be able to sit in on the treatment, they will be required to wait In their car until your treatment is finished.
