Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a pressure-based therapy, most popularly applied to the feet. The therapist uses their hands to apply pressure techniques to parts of the feet known as reflexes. These reflexes correspond to organs and systems within your body.

Reflexology is shown to relieve tension, improve circulation and restore balance to mind and body. Learn about the Origins of Reflexology.

What Are The Wider Benefits Of Reflexology?

My clients use reflexology to manage stress while working towards important goals which can be personal or career related or both. Clients report benefits such as improved sleep, having more energy, more focus and calm.

Along with helping you perform at your best, reflexology provides balance during a couple’s fertility journey and provides relief from some of the less pleasant side effects of pregnancy.

Many clients use reflexology to support their journey through illnesses such as cancer & M.S. Reflexology is beneficial for people of all ages and all abilities.

What Happens During My First Reflexology Treatment?

At Authentic Reflexology I provide a bespoke reflexology & wellness service to clients who want more lasting benefits from their treatment plan. Your reflexology therapy starts with a detailed consultation by phone or video call. Following this call, I create a personalised treatment programme for your needs. Each treatment consists of a foot examination and application of reflexology to your feet. As part of your personalised plan you will receive additional resources and strategies to help you towards your goals.

Check my guide on how to prepare for your first treatment, including tips on how to turn your space into a relaxing therapy zone.

Is Reflexology Painful?

My intention is to put you fully at ease throughout treatment. I apply a variety of pressure techniques depending on the condition of the reflexes in your feet. If parts of your feet are tender these will be treated gently and effectively.

Communication during treatment can help to put clients at ease, especially during the first treatment. Some clients fall asleep during treatment because they enter deep relaxation.
