Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I arrive for my Reflexology treatment?

Please wear comfortable loose clothing and arrive 20 minutes before treatment begins to complete a pre-assessment form. You may lie in a supine position on a treatment table, or sit in a chair, fully clothed. All you need to do is remove your shoes and socks. I begin with some deep breathing meditation techniques to ground us both before treatment begins. This leads to a more relaxed, “intuitive” treatment.

Next, I clean your feet with a light solution of witch hazel mixed with soap and water. Then I apply relaxation and stretching techniques to your foot, while I assess the foot like a “map” of your whole body.

What can I expect after my first Reflexology treatment?

You may feel Reflexology results after the first treatment or you may need several treatments, depending on how your body reacts to Reflexology therapy. I encourage any feedback during and after the treatment. After a Reflexology treatment, your body releases toxins, which indicates the treatment is working well. I always encourage you to drink plenty of water after the treatment to clean out the toxins and hydrate yourself.

Following treatment, I provide take-home Reflexology techniques to enhance your Reflexology experience during the week. 

Some people initially feel the following effects right after a treatment, and then feel longer term effects after a few more treatments.

What are the initial treatment effects of Reflexology?

  • Great fatigue initially
  • Increased flatulence and bowel movements
  • Pain relief
  • More energy
  • General aches after 1 day (toxins releasing)
  • Improved sleep
  • Very calm and grounded

What are the long-term treatment effects of Reflexology?

  • Relaxed muscles and body awareness
  • Released toxins mentally and physically
  • Calmer mind and mental awareness
  • Increased circulation of blood, lymph, digestion
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Relaxed nervous system
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • Stronger immune system
  • Very calm and grounded
  • Reduced stress and anxiety… and more

When should I see a Foot Specialist or Doctor instead of a Reflexologist for treatment?

  1. If you have contracted an infectious disease, a high fever, deep vein thrombosis, an unstable risk pregnancy, a severe heart condition, or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, then you should reconsider taking treatment at this time, and visit your Doctor for approval of treatment.

  2. If you have a broken foot, ankle or severe chronic foot pain, it is recommended to see a Foot Specialist or Doctor for initial treatment, assessment and approval to be treated by a Reflexologist.
  3.  Reflexologists do not prescribe medication, diagnose, treat specific conditions, or use any tools (unless trained).
