What happens during a session?
Frequently asked questions
What happens during a session?
There are three main parts in a session: a) discussing the presenting issues, b) the treatment, and c) discussing the treatment.
At the start, you will be asked about the state of your health & well-being, and whether there are any presenting contraindications.
The treatment will be broken down to three parts. Initial assessment of the feet and opening relaxation moves in preparation for the most effective results, followed by the treatment, and finally closing sequences.
After the treatment, there will be a dialogue on how the treatment went.
How long is a session?
The whole session will be 60mins.
How much will a treatment cost?
£40. Currently every 11th session will be free. 10th session must be completed by 31st August 2019.
I have ticklish feet. Will I be giggling for the whole hour?
No. I am yet to treat a client who giggled even a bit!
So what does it feel like on my foot?
For most of the session, you will feel very comfortable, relaxed and soothed. If certain parts of your body are out of balance, the corresponding part of your feet will feel tender or sore.
What else might I feel during and after the treatment?
It varies widely from a person to person. There are two phases when you sense changes within your body.
During the treatment
Many will feel sleepy, and you are more than welcome to nap during the session if you wish!
During the treatment, some will start feeling colder, others warmer. A few people get emotional. You may find yourself talking throughout the treatment, or you may go quiet. Rumbling in the tummy as well as light headedness are quite common reactions, and I had reports of ‘tingling’ sensations. Certain conditions may improve immediately.
Between 12 to 48 hours after the treatment – possible onset of healing crisis
Healing crisis, or detox reaction, is a temporary worsening of symptoms that occur when the body is going through the process of healing itself through the elimination of toxins.
After the initial ‘euphoria’ during or straight after the treatment, emotionally you may feel lethargic or tired. Physically, there may be increased bowel movement or a possibility of headaches.
Drinking copious amount of water (two to four litres a day) and good rest/sleep should minimise the effects.
The healing crisis is always worst after the treatment, and the greater the stress, the worse it will be.
How long does it take before I see the benefit of the treatment?
You should feel relaxed straight away. Generally speaking acute conditions see the benefits sooner than chronic conditions.
How often should I have the treatment?
Specific conditions require shorter intervals (weekly or fortnightly). For relaxation, every three to six weeks.
Where is your practice?
You can have the treatment in the comfort of your home. I operate from RM8 (Beacontree). I should be able to accommodate E, IG, RM and CM13, CM14 & CM15 postcode areas. Even if you live outside these areas, give me a call and we can discuss arrangement.
