What Can I Expect in a First Reflexology Visit?
The Initial Consultation
Your first appointment includes an initial consultation, before the treatment. This allows me to confidentially take some medical, lifestyle and health information and find out what your objectives are so I can tailor the treatment especially for you.
I will conduct a brief health history, checking in case reflexology may not be the best choice of therapy for you.
I will explain how reflexology works and what to expect in the session. Please note that reflexology does not treat specific illnesses and is not a substitute for medical treatment. You will be asked to sign a consent form.
Starting the session
- You will lie or sit down, remaining fully clothed except for your shoes and socks. I will soak your feet in warm water, and then position them at chest level.
- I will begin by assessing your feet for open wounds, rashes, sores, plantar warts or bunions and will ask you about any foot or leg pain that could hinder treatment.
- Generally, a session lasts between 45-60 minutes. You can rest or talk during the session at your discretion. If you fall asleep during the session, you will still receive the benefits of the treatment.
- Feedback during the session is encouraged, and of course, you can request that the session stop at any time.
