What can I expect in my first session?
Please allow 90 minutes in order to complete 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. As they say on embarrassing bodies "I have seen it all before!"
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. Clients usually have weekly treatments to start and then followed by fortnightly and then return monthly for maintenance 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.
FOOT HEALTHCARE TREATMENTS
What happens in a session?
A session will take between 30 - 60 minutes depending on what treatment is required. Firstly a few details will be taken regarding medications and health in order to ensure any treatment is carried out safely. Treatment will then be agreed. The feet will be cleaned and observed with any issues discussed with the client. Once treatment has been completed cuticle oil will be applied and feet massaged using appropriate cream .
How often do i need to come?
Nails grow at different rates and if a condition is being treated such as a verruca timings between appointments may vary. As a guide I would normally expect to see a client every 6 weeks.
