During your Reflexology treatment
Your therapist will begin with a health assessment, which will cover your medical history and any current conditions. They will typically ask you to sit on a stool or table, before cleansing your feet and using a wax or oil to perform the massage. They may also work on your hands.
This ancient technique is based on knowledge of specific points on the feet and hands which correspond to the rest of the body, and can be targeted based on your health concerns. Your therapist will begin with massage to warm up the area, before applying pressure to these points. Most practitioners will treat one foot at a time, but some may work on both together.
After your Reflexology treatment
You’ll feel relaxed, calm and balanced. You may also feel energised, experience slightly heightened emotions, and notice improved circulation and digestion.
