F A Q s
Does reflexology hurt/tickle?
Reflexology uses medium rhythmic pressure on the feet to enable relaxation and to make sure all points are worked effectively. Some points may be more tender than others and this indicates areas that need more attention, but your comfort is my priority so if anything is too uncomfortable just let me know! As someone with ticklish feet I can confirm that reflexology does not tickle!
What if I fall asleep?
Falling asleep is a big compliment to your therapist, and is very much welcomed, snores and all! While some people fall asleep, others drift into a meditative state and some just sit back and enjoy the peaceful music.
Can reflexology cure my condition?
Reflexology doesn't claim to cure or diagnose conditions. It is a very individual treatment and aims to help the body to rebalance naturally. Some people find it works for them, some people don't. The best way to find out is to try it!
Do I need to shave my legs/ paint my toenails?
Can I have reflexology if I'm pregnant?
Absolutely. Reflexology is a wonderful and safe treatment to have when you are pregnant. I take pregnant clients from 13 weeks onwards.
How many sessions should I have?
The number of sessions you have is unique to each individual and will depend on what you would like to get out of the treatments and what is feasible for you. If there is a particular area of your health you'd like me to work on, I recommend a treatment once a week for 5 or 6 weeks to start with as by then you can usually feel if reflexology is making a positive difference to you. Please see my 'Treatments' page to find out more.
I have athlete's foot/veruccae, can I still have a treatment?
I'm not able to touch any area of the foot with athlete's foot or verrucae as they are contagious. Both can be easily treated using an over the counter remedy from your local pharmacy. Once the infection has cleared please get in touch and I'd love to see you for a treatment.
Can children have a reflexology treatment?
Reflexology can be a brilliant therapy for children of all ages. I am a qualified baby and child reflexology practitioner and witnessing the positive effects reflexology can have on their wellbeing brings me so much joy. Please see my 'Treatments' page for more information on baby and child reflexology.
What's your cancellation policy?
Please provide 24 hours notice of cancellation or the need to reschedule to allow me the opportunity to refill an appointment. In cases where less than 24 hours is given then 50% of the treatment fee will be charged. No shows will be charged 100% of the treatment fee.
