What if I need to cancel my appointment?
Please have consideration for my time by giving at least 24 hours’ notice should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Which locations do you cover?
Anywhere within Torbay (Paignton, Torquay and Brixham) and within a 3-mile radius of Totnes.
What should I expect from my first session?
Before your first treatment, you will receive a link to a medical and lifestyle questionnaire by email. This will need to be completed and returned to me before your first appointment. During your first session, a face-to-face consultation will be carried out to establish your exact requirements. The treatment will then be tailored to your needs. You will have the chance to ask any questions you may have. I will also explain a little more about how reflexology works and what will happen during the session.
What aftercare advice should I follow once my treatment has finished?
See Aftercare Leaflet. Ensure you drink plenty of water in order to hydrate your body and help flush out any toxins. Avoid caffeine, alcohol or smoking for 24 hours after your treatment and ensure you get plenty of rest. Avoiding any strenuous activity will ensure the treatment is at its most effective, so the body can then focus on the process of healing.
What happens during a typical treatment session?
I will bring along a comfortable reclining chair, music and other equipment to make your treatment as relaxing as possible. You just need to provide a calming, quiet and uninterrupted environment to get the best from your session and ensure you wear something warm and comfortable. You will remain fully clothed and just be required to remove your shoes and socks. After lying back on the recliner and removing your footwear, you will be offered a warm blanket and then the treatment will begin with a light massage to the feet using a light balm or oil. Once the feet are relaxed, precise reflexology movements will be performed involving various massage techniques and gentle pressure applied to different areas of the feet. The treatment itself lasts about 45 minutes and aims to completely relax you and thereby help to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. At the end of the session, I will discuss any areas of sensitivity or congestion that may have been detected.

Do you offer treatments to children?
Yes, treatments can be very beneficial to children and are adapted accordingly which usually makes the treatment time a bit shorter. Contact me to discuss your requirements.

Do you offer treatments to men?
I offer strictly professional reflexology treatments to women only, but I will accept male clients if they have been referred by an existing client or friend, and then only at my discretion.
