Are reflexology and massage different?2019-04-26T12:02:38+00:00

Absolutely. With reflexology, your practitioner works on an area on your feet that is ‘blocked’ using varying degrees of pressure to release the blockage, improve your health and wellbeing and restore balance. A foot massage on the other hand focuses on relaxing the muscles of the feet and restoring only your feet to comfort, not any other area of your body.

Does reflexology hurt?2019-04-26T11:53:18+00:00

When patients experience pain in certain points on their feet, this indicates congestion of weakness on a specific meridian or organ. The reflexologist will adjust her pressure to alleviate any discomfort. This pain also eases with continued treatment and once the patient’s health improves.

How will I feel after a treatment?2019-04-26T11:52:35+00:00

You may experience tenderness after a session or nothing at all. Some patients are ticklish initially, some like to chat throughout the treatment and some are so relaxed they even fall asleep.

After treatment, some patients could experience side-effects from the detox, including headaches, irritability or tiredness. Others find they are more energised, more thirsty or hungry.

Different patients react and respond differently to reflexology.

What can I expect during my first reflexology treatment?2019-04-26T11:51:39+00:00

This initial consultation will provide your reflexologist with a medical history, allergies and insights into any health issues. You do not need to undress, but your feet will be disinfected.

Using her thumb and forefinger, the reflexologist will then probe the soles of your feet to diagnose areas of your body that are not functioning optimally. The firmness of the pressure applied depends on how sensitive your feet are to touch.

A session will last between 30 to 60 minutes and typically patients are treated over five to 10 sessions depending on the health condition which requires reflexology treatment.
