Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect in my first session?
It will last about 90 minutes and will start with a health and lifestyle questionnaire. I will then cleanse your feet with Witch Hazel. The session begins with a short massage, followed by reflexology and will end with a longer massage using a dermatologically tested moisturiser. At the end of the session I will discuss with the client future treatment needs.
Do I need to do anything prior to my session?
It is helpful to remove nail varnish, but realise that this is not always possible, especially with shellac polish. Looser clothing around the lower leg assists with massage to the calf muscle area. I understand that clients would like me to see their feet as their best and are tempted to remove hard skin, but seeing feet in their natural state is very useful.
How many sessions will I need?
This is dependent on the reason for attending and how a client responds to treatment. I would hope that a client would have a significant improvement within five sessions. I cannot be specific as some people notice improvement after the first session whilst others need to get used to having the treatment.
Can you diagnose medical conditions?
No, only a qualified doctor can diagnose a medical condition. When completing the therapy I may observe imbalances in the body that could indicate potential issues.
What happens to all the information you take?
Under the Data Protection Act all personal information will be kept in secure files. I will not share any information with other parties without prior permission.
