Your questions

Where will my reflexology session take place?
Reflexology can be very relaxing. To make the most of this I prefer to carry out home visits allowing clients time to enjoy the relaxation without having to rush off or drive home, thereby allowing the treatment to begin working immediately. I work in Abergele, Colwyn Bay, Conwy, Llandudno, Llanrwst, Denbigh, St. Asaph and along the North Wales coast. For maternity & fertility clients, I now offer treatments at ‘Studio Bump’ on Madoc Street, Llandudno.

How does it work?
There is no one, definitive answer to this. Some people believe it works on the traditional Chinese medicine system of energy (or ‘Chi‘) flow around the body, unblocking energy highways, restoring balance to the body and generally boosting the body’s systems.

Is reflexology safe?
Yes! For almost all people, reflexology is safe but a short medical questionnaire will be filled in prior to treatment. There are a few occasions when a reflexologist will not work on you, for example, if you have a high fever, suffer from a DVT or if you are undergoing medical tests. Like all complementary therapies, you must tell your reflexologist if you are pregnant.

How long does a treatment last?
A treatment lasts about 50-55 minutes but your initial session will be slightly longer to allow time to complete a short medical questionnaire.

How many treatments will I have?
Some people feel the benefits following just one session but a course of 4 or 6 treatments tends to give the best results. Some people choose to have a ‘maintenance’ treatment every 4 – 6 weeks.

Are there any side effects?
You may feel tired following a treatment. Very occasionally, flu-like symptoms can be experienced afterwards and sometimes clients feel the need to visit the toilet more frequently. In general, the only ‘side effect’ is a sense of calm and relaxation.

Does it tickle?
Some people do have ticklish feet but the treatment will not tickle. The pressure applied by the therapist can be adjusted to make you more comfortable.

Do I lie down? What do I wear?
The session will normally be carried out with the client in a reclining chair, a pillow behind the head and a blanket covering them for warmth (we tend to become chilly when relaxed). You will be asked to remove shoes and socks for the treatment. If mobility is an issue, or you are in the later stages of pregnancy, I will make you comfortable in your own chair and raise your feet sufficiently to allow access for working.
