Here is description of a typical reflexology session.
Before each session, I cleanse my hands, disinfect the chair and change the towels to be used. After we have greeted each other and you have had a chance to use the restroom, you will be seated in my comfortable zero-gravity chair.
If you're a new client, we'll discuss your health history to determine if there is anything that will affect the way we handle your treatment.
I adjust the pillow on the chair for your comfort and then recline you fully. Your feet will be higher than your head. A pillow covered by a bath towel will be placed under your feet to cushion them. It also raises them off the chair’s frame to aid my working position. A small blanket will be available if you feel cold. I will wash both of your feet with a disposal wipe while looking for any bruises, warts, ingrown nails, etc. that will affect my treatment. If this is a return visit, I will ask you about any changes in your feet or health at that point.
Your left foot will be covered by the towel to keep it warm, while I begin working on your right foot. We start with some gentle movements to help you relax and for your feet to get used to my touch. Then I will begin the reflexology work. I may use some unscented lotion to help my motion on your feet, but it is optional.
You can talk with me anytime during the session. I will tell you anything I feel in your feet and ask questions about that area. When the right foot is done, I move to the left foot after covering the right foot. I work on your left foot as needed.
As the session ends, both feet will be uncovered for some final work. We end with you taking three deep breaths while I press on the points in the feet that reflex to your solar plexus. This is a final act to increase relaxation. You will sit up when you are ready and ask any final questions you may have.
