What to expect

Whether you are familiar with reflexology or this is your first time, you can expect your visit to a This is Heal reflexologist to be new and different from any healthcare experience you’ve had before. Perhaps even life­-changing!

Your consultation and treatment

After a consultation, your reflexologist will determine if you will benefit from reflexology. If so, you will be treated in an private treatment room on a purpose-built chair or couch. You will remain fully clothed for the duration of your visit, so we recommend you wear non-restrictive clothing so it's more comfortable for you sitting/lying down. You will remove shoes and socks. Your reflexologist might need to work the lower portion of your leg, so it's best if you wear a loose skirt/dress or trousers you can roll up. 

Before starting the treatment, your reflexologist will explain how reflexology will help you, and the many benefits reflexology has to offer: we want you to know exactly what to expect. Your practitioner will answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Do I need to be quiet and close my eyes?

Nope! Your more than welcome to snooze, close your eyes and have quiet time during the treatment if you'd like, but the This is Heal way is for patients to tell their reflexologist what they feel and to chat if they'd like. Although our reflexologists are highly trained and reputable practitioners, it's impossible for them to know exactly what you are experiencing, so welcome your feedback.

Is reflexology safe?

Although there are some times that you shouldn't have reflexology (which your practitioner will screen you for), it is a safe, effective and non-invasive. If, during your consultation, the reflexologist feels that care is contraindicated, you will be referred to the appropriate healthcare provider.

Does reflexology hurt?

Some points might be tender, but no, it doesn't hurt.

How will I feel immediately after a treatment?

You might feel woozy, you might feel energised, you might develop a headache or feel emotional, or you might feel calm and settled. It entirely depends on your individual system. Although This is Heal reflexologists are trained not to overload your system, you might experience some of these symptoms in the hours following treatment as your body processes it.

How long will appointments last?

Most first appointments will take 1 hour - 1 hour 15 minutes. Follow-on treatments take 45 mins - 1 hour.

How often will I need to be treated?

At the end of your first visit, your reflexologist will determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. The frequency with which you receive reflexology is strictly up to the professional judgment of the practitioner and will vary from individual to individual depending on your presenting condition, health history and overall goals. Just as regular exercise is important for fitness, bone health, muscle health, circulation etc,  routine visits to a reflexologist are also important.

If you have specific questions, needs or concerns, you are always welcome to get in touch with This is Heal and speak with Jess or another of the reflexologists. Find a This is Heal reflexologist near you.
