Where will my reflexology session or energy work session take place?
Your reflexology or energy work session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Soft music may be played to help you relax. You will lie in a zero gravity chair especially designed for your comfort. This will be either in your home or mine.
Must I be completely undressed?
No....all you will have to remove for your reflexology or energy therapy session are your shoes and socks. Some people say it's like getting a massage without having to take your clothes off!
What parts of my body will be massaged?
A typical reflexology session is limited to the feet and ankles, although if a person has problems with pain or arthritis in their hands, then this area can also be worked into the session. It is also possible that ear reflex points could be worked into the session depending on the body issues a client may be experiencing.
For someone specifically wanting a reflexology facial, then the face will be addressed with specific facial reflex points and organic products.
What will the reflexology session feel like?
A very relaxing foot massage is often a baseline for clients. Your session may start with broad, flowing strokes that will help calm you and your nervous system. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of tension. Often, a light lotion is used to allow your feet to be massaged without causing excessive friction on the skin. The lotion, of course, also helps with hydration. You should communicate immediately if you feel any discomfort, so that another approach may be taken. Reflexology is most effective when your body is not resisting.
What should I do during the Reflexology or Energy Session ?
During the session, make yourself comfortable. Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving, feel free to ask.
How will I feel after the Reflexology or Energy session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity.
