Reflexology Room Aftercare Advice

The effects of reflexology are unique to each person, most feel a sense of wellbeing and relaxation others find it uplifting rejuvenating and energising. Some may experience a ‘healing response’. This is a positive outcome and indicates that the body is beginning to eliminate toxins and is starting to find balance.

 I recommend that you carry out the following advice for 24 hours following your treatment.

*            Drink lots of water as this will help hydrate your body and flush out toxins and improve your energy levels.

*            If possible, try and make some time to rest after your treatment.  This will allow your body to focus on healing.

*            Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol as these are stimulants and will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.

*            Eat a light and healthy diet to allow your body to put its energy into healing

 

Be kind to your feet

*            Ensure your shoes are the correct size and fit.

*            Wear low heels to maintain natural balance.

*            Wear leather or natural fibre shoes to allow the skin to breath. Synthetic shoes that provide no ventilation can increase sweating and the likelihood of fungal infections.

*            Wear cotton or wool socks which allow the feet to breath.

*            Use a pumice stone or foot scrub to remove hard skin and moisturise regularly.

*            Visit your chiropodist or GP if you have any foot concerns.
