What happens during a treatment?
A Reflexology treatment is carried out on bare feet, while you relax on a healing couch or reclining chair. A typical treatment lasts for approximately 50 minutes and most people find the treatment pleasant and soothing. Occasionally some areas of the feet may feel tender, this just indicates an imbalance in a corresponding part of the body, and will ease as the session progresses.
After treatment you may experience a feeling of deep relaxation and tranquility, therefore it is good to engage in some peaceful activity immediately afterwards to maintain this feeling of wellbeing. It is important after a Reflexology treatment to drink plenty of water to assist in flushing toxins from the body, and to avoid alcohol.
Most treatments last about 45 minutes, and are carried out on a healing couch or chair. You will remain fully clothed while I place my hands on or above various areas of your body. These 'areas' are known as Chakras - places in the body where there is flow of energy. Reiki is subjective; you may experience sensations such as warmth, coldness or tingling etc, along with relaxation, as the body receives the life force energy and blockages are removed.
Immediately after treatment you may feel very relaxed and peaceful, or re-energised. It is beneficial to take some 'time out' after Reiki by engaging in an activity that maintains your feelings of relaxation and calm, eg by connecting with nature, thus enabling full integration of the Reiki healing energies.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
You will be invited to relax on a an onsite massage chair, to allow the head, face, neck, upper back and shoulders to be worked on. Oils may be included. A treatment usually lasts around 30 minutes, and you will remain fully clothed. Indian Head Massage does not complement 'just left the salon' hair, so it is best to arrange your treatment either prior, or on an alternative day, to your salon appointment.
To gain maximum benefit from your treatment, try to rest afterwards - this will assist your body's natural healing process. Caffeine can have a stimulating effect, therefore coffee, tea and cola should be avoided if possible - drink herbal teas instead. Also, try to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours, and endeavour to drink plenty of water over the next few days to flush toxins away.
Very Occasionally, after any holistic therapy, you may experience a 'healing crisis'. This usually indicates that your body is going through a 'cleansing' process. It may also indicate that more treatments may be necessary. Symptoms you may experience are headache, nausea, cold or flu like symptoms, bowel changes, feeling emotional and fatigued. These symptoms should normally resolve within a few days. During this time you can support your body by drinking lots of water, eating healthily, and gently exercising. If you have concerns or questions about anything you are experiencing following any of the aforementioned holistic therapies, please feel assured that you can contact me.
