Reflexology is a form of health therapy that is non-invasive and involves a therapist touching points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face, or ears. Each area involved in reflexology corresponds to different areas of the body. The job of a reflexologist is to work on points and areas to reduce stress, promote good health, relaxation, and overall wellbeing.

Is Reflexology Suitable For Me?

Reflexology is suitable for anyone of any age, even newborn babies. If you are unsure whether reflexology will benefit you, speak to your local reflexologist (Harriet Jeffrey) by contacting us at harriet@coopershilltherapies.co.uk

Harriet can help decide whether reflexology is a suitable treatment for you. You should always seek medical advice in the first instance if you are concerned about a medical condition you have.

What Happens When I Go For My First Reflexology Treatment?

When you have your first reflexology appointment, you’ll be asked to give a full medical history ahead of your treatment. This is so that your reflexologist can get a full picture of any particular issues you have had or are experiencing. You will be asked to sign a consent form for treatment which will be kept confidential, along with your medical history.

Reflexology is designed to be very relaxing and you will never be asked to doing anything you are uncomfortable with. For your reflexologist to gain access to the skin on your feet and lower legs, you will be asked to remove your socks and shoes.

How Will I Feel After My Reflexology Treatment?

Most people feel a sense of relaxation after their reflexology treatment. However, sometimes people can feel lethargic, tired, nauseous, or even tearful. It is important that you report how you are feeling to your reflexologist so that they can tailor your reflexology treatment correctly to you and your body’s needs.
