FAQS

What to expect?

During our first meeting we'll have an intitial consultation, which will take approximately 20-30 mins. This can be done in person, over the phone or by video chat. I'll take a full medical and health history to check it's safe for you to have a treatment, if there are any contrinidications. Treatment may need to be postponed and medical consent required before a session. 

At the beginning of each session, I will run over how you are feeling and identify the focus area for your session. This may be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Please allow 10-15 minute for your initial consulation plus session time. 

What to wear?

It’s very important to me that you feel safe and comfortable so please do discuss any concerns with me. For massage you will need to undress to your underwear and will be covered by a soft throw or towel throughout the session, with only the area being massaged being uncovered then re-covered as the treatment proceeds.

For reflexology loose comfortable trousers that can easily be turned up to the knee are perfect.

Shamanic healing come as you feel comfortable, you'll be fully clothed and covered with a light throw or uncovered while laying on the treatment couch. Loose comfotable clothing is ideal.  

Combination treatments can be any of the above depeding on your desired outcome.

Aftercare

Where possible, it is helpful for you to have some quiet time after your session and ensure you drink plenty of water. With some conditions, people will experience responses as their body processes the treatment. This could be increased sensation in the area of discomfort as muscle and tissues adapt or increased urination if the circulation of the lymphatic system has been supported. Sometimes people can feel exhausted after a treatment as the nervous system and stress responses adjust. This should ease within 24 hours but do feel free to get in contact with me to discuss how you are feeling and I may make further suggestions to support you.
