On your first visit there is a preliminary consultation with the practitioner who will note any problems needing attention or any adverse indications. You will be asked to remove socks and shoes and sit on a reclining couch or special chair. General appearance of the foot will be noted in case of any sores or corns which must not receive pressure. The feet will be cleansed and the reflexologist begins to work on your feet, or hands if necessary. Compression massage to the soles and uppers of the feet using powder or a lotion will be applied using a light but firm touch.
During the treatment some areas of the foot may feel a little tender and these may correlate with 'problem' areas in the body and is an indication of congestion or imbalance. Typically this is a very pleasant, relaxing and rejuvenating therapy. Don't worry if you have ticklish feet, the treatment is very precise and quite firm.
