What should I expect during my treatment?
For foot reflexology – feet are warmed and a foot wax applied. Pressure is then applied to all areas of the toes, feet, ankle and sometimes the shin. The right foot is usually worked first and then the left. The treatment is finish by balancing both feet together. You may find that some areas are tender or feel different to the rest of the foot.
