A full case history is taken prior to the treatment. Objectives and expectations of the treatment are discussed in order to tailor the treatment appropriately.
The treatment involves the client sitting in a reclining chair fully clothed with their feet slightly elevated. Only the feet are exposed during the treatment. The feet are warmed up using massage techniques and then sequences of reflexes are stimulated on different parts of the feet. The treatment is neither painful nor ticklish although sometimes certain areas may feel a little tender.This often relates to an imbalance within the corresponding area of the body.
