For best result 6-12 continually for the natural face lift massage and every 3-4 weeks thereafter
Is it painful?
The treatment is not painful however if there are congested areas you may feel a little tender but this will not last for long. The therapist will check with your throughout the treatment to ensure they pressure is right for you
Does it tickle?
As the pressure is quite firm most people do not get a ticklish re-action.
What can you do if I don’t like my feet being touched?
Hand or face reflexology can be used instead of the foot. However people that do not overly like their feet being touch find this different. If you wish to see if it does work for you book as shorter session and the treatment can be changed at any time from the feet to the hand if necessary
Is it safe?
Reflexology is non-invasive and drug-free treatment that treats the body holistically. There are certain contra-indications (1st trimester of pregnancy / drugs/ alcohol consumption) that may prohibit a treatment and will be discussed with you prior to treatment. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further
