Frequency asked Questions
Which treatment is suitable for me?
Holistic Therapies are safe and natural. Please contact me so we can discuss the treatments I offer, and which is most appropriate for you. I take the ‘holistic approach’ to your wellbeing. This means that I will take your physical, mental and spiritual health into consideration. Prior to a first treatment, I ask you to fill in a confidential, health and wellbeing consultation form, (please see my <Client/Practitioner Agreement> for more details). I’ll explain the treatment you'll receive and review the information given. Occasionally, medical permission may be required before a treatment can begin, for example, if you are pregnant or have a chronic medical condition. Where permission cannot be obtained, clients can give their informed consent by signing the form.
Where will my treatment take place?
Your treatment will take place at your home, hotel, workplace or at a venue. I'll set up my portable equipment in a suitable space, preferably on the ground floor with room for me to move around freely without obstruction.
What do I wear during the treatment?
Full body massage, clients undress to their underwear. Prior to treatment, I suggest you wear a dressing gown or loose clothing for ease and comfort. During the treatment you're covered with towels/blankets at all times except for the area being worked on. Traditional Thai Massage on a Kapok mat, fully clothed, wear loose, comfortable clothing. Seated chair Acupressure and Indian Head Massage, you remain fully clothed. Reflexology, you remain fully clothed with shoes and socks removed.
What do I do during a treatment?
Switch off your phone and make yourself comfortable on the couch. I will ask you to adjust your position as needed. I suggest you close your eyes and breathe. This is your time to relax and switch off from the world, helping to maximise the benefits of the treatment.
How will a treatment feel?
Every session is tailored for you. No two people are the same. A full body massage treatment starts with the application of an organic massage/wax to warm up the body. A variety of techniques are used to create the desired therapeutic effect. You may experience some discomfort, due to tight body tissues whilst receiving a deep tissue massage. A Reflexology treatment starts with the application of organic wax to warm up the feet, followed with pressure applied to the feet. Pressure is applied within your comfort zone with all treatments. If you experience pain during any treatment please let me know, the pressure can be adjusted. Reiki is channelled hands on, or just above the area being worked on, I'll ask your preference prior to treatment
How will I feel after the treatment?
How you feel after a treatment varies, based on the demands you place on your body and the type of treatment you receive. To maximise the benefits, please read my aftercare guidance. Generally my clients feel: De-stressed, deeply relaxed, calm, peaceful and ready for a regenerative snooze. Clients have also given me feedback that they feel balanced, refreshed and invigorated with increased energy to go on with their daily tasks. Occasionally a client might feel sad, and cry. This totally normal, I'm here to support you. Its sign that something has been released within the layers of the body.
