The questions I get asked about reflexology - the hashtag #becurious on a shop window

I thought I would write a bit about some of the questions I get asked frequently from clients and people in general when they find out what I do. Are there any questions below that you’ve asked a reflexologist?

What is Reflexology all about?

I explain that reflexology works on the principle that we have reflex points in our feet, hands and face which correspond to all our energetic and bodily systems. I tell people about the different techniques I use on various points and why I use these techniques. I also explain that people have preferences on the amount of pressure used which I have to take into consideration.

How long does a Reflexology session take?

Generally, my reflexology sessions last for an hour. At the initial appointment, I do a consultation first which can take around 15 minutes and is followed with an hour’s treatment. Some of my clients have a 45-minute treatment and sometimes when I visit one household, I do a few 30-minute treatments.

When new clients get in touch, I always like to have a quick initial chat on the phone too.

Where are you based?

Mostly I am a mobile therapist and will come to your house. I cover Halstead, Sudbury and surrounding areas on the Essex Suffolk border.

I also use a treatment room in Castle Hedingham which I love as some clients like to get out of the house for their treatment.

How much does a Reflexology session cost

All my prices are here on my website and I’m always happy to talk to people about pricing structures for bespoke events that I get involved with.

How long did it take you to train to be a reflexologist?

I trained with Hagar Basis at the Reflexology Academy in London. I went to London one weekend a month for about 14 months to learn the practical elements and had to study anatomy and physiology as part of the qualification.

In addition to that I had to do 100 hours of treatments which made up various case studies. I have a level 5 mastership in clinical reflexology and am a member of the Association of Reflexology.

So, what did you find?

I get asked this a lot at the end of treatments. I always explain that as a profession we do not diagnose. We will feel different textures, sensitive areas etc in the feet which will allow us to work that area and associated reflex points.

Sometimes it’s more about the emotional reactions. I always chat with clients during and after the treatment about anything that I become aware of and always watch for reactions throughout the treatment.

Do you sell gift vouchers?

Yes I do. I can write, wrap and post the gift vouchers to you or the person you are buying it for.

How can I pay?

I accept cash and card and can arrange for bank transfers and payment links for those wishing to buy a gift voucher.

That’s just some of the questions I get asked on a regular basis.
