How many treatments will I need?
As a very general guide a treatment is never likely to be once only, unless just purely for a 'relaxation treat'. This is because whilst one or two treatments may seem to produce an immediate improvement this may not be lasting. A course of treatments is therefore likely to be recommended and will be discussed with you after your initial treatment.
How will I feel afterwards?
Most people feel relaxed and have a sense of calm and well being. Occasionally, some people experience the following reactions:
Feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful
Feeling heady or having a headache
Change in bodily functions
Change in colour and odour of urine
These are all positive reactions as the body flushes out toxins and will pass within 24 hours.
Does reflexology hurt?
It does not usually hurt and it should never be extremely uncomfortable. When areas of sensitivity are found a lighter pressure is applied to suit the individual. Therefore, during a treatment you may feel a slight discomfort or even a sharp sensation but generally the treatment should be a pleasant experience producing a state of relaxation or well-being.
