After Care Information
Thank you for booking your treatment with me and congratulations on taking your first step along your healing journey. The aftercare of your session is as important as the treatment itself. Whether you experienced sensations during the treatment itself, reactions to holistic therapy afterwards can vary greatly from person to person. There is no right or wrong response to the treatment. Everyone is different and every session is different so its important that you listen to your body, any problems please do drop me a line.

Reflex Zone Therapy
Reflex zone therapy is such a wonderful, relaxing treatment and it really starts your bodies own healing. Therefore you may experience some aftereffects from the treatment, this is nothing to be concerned about, but it is important to take care of yourself following a treatment. You may experience the following *Headache *Nausea/flatulence/diarrhoea/constipation *Feeling overtired/over energised *Feeling emotional *Hunger and thirst *Frequent trips to the toilet *Flu or cold like symptoms.
This is your body responding to the healing and kick starting its own healing process. It is known as a healing response; your body will be eliminating formant toxins and emotions that have been brought to the surface following the Reflex therapy. Your body will benefit from releasing these trapped emotions/patterns/toxins as they are no longer required.
Please get extra rest and sleep, increase your fluid intake with water (preferably filtered) or herbal teas do try to avoid caffeine, alcohol, and other toxins for at least 48 hours post treatment. Eat a light diet to support your digestive system.
Any reaction to a treatment may be due to the metabolic waste being released through the elimination systems. These reactions are a positive sign that the body is beginning to rebalance. Any symptoms usually subside within 12-24 hours. In the unlikely event of a reaction to treatment or if symptoms persist for more than 24 hours clients are advised to visit their GP and inform their therapist immediately.

Other ways you can assist yourself with your bodies healing journey are ;
* salt baths to help detoxification - 1 cup Epsom salts and 1 cup baking soda in a hot bath is really good for detoxification of heavy energies and toxins - if you cant bathe then make a foot soak instead. Remember to keep well hydrated after a salt bath.
* eating a well balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables, fresh water and reducing the amount of wheat, sugar and processed foods in your diet will help reduce inflammation within your body systems and encourage you to feel much lighter and revitalised.
* regular exercise or moving your body will keep your lymphatic system healthy, your respiratory system healthy and your cardiovascular system healthy. You don't have to attend body fit classes three times a week to achieve this - just take regular walks and breaks from sitting throughout your day.
* Mindfulness and gratitude are fabulous practices for healing and self care. Take time each day to mindfully breathe and give thanks to yourself, your body and anything else you are feeling grateful for.
