With reflexology, a state of ‘homeostasis’ can be attained. This is a state of relaxation, rest and repair where the body can heal. Every person has it’s own way to heal. Almost everyone responds to Reflexology, some more than others.
What to Expect
Whether from a Reflexology or Reiki treatment, everyone experiences releases differently, however, after a few treatments clients get to know how their bodies process the shift of energy.
WHAT ARE SOME PEOPLE’S EXPERIENCES?
Some people have a different experience every time.
Some feel simply relaxed.
And others sleep during the treatment.
It is this state of homeostasis when the body does it’s most efficient healing.
Sensations are mostly pleasant or neutral. Occasionally, if deep releases occur, the body needs to process accordingly. Toxins may be released and you can speak with your Practitioner about what may occur. Hydrating yourself both before and after treatments, aids in releasing toxins through the bladder.
FOLLOWING A TREATMENT

Everyone experiences releases differently. After a few treatments clients get to know how their bodies process the shift of energy. The most commonly reported difference is better sleep. Hydrating oneself with water and herbal teas helps the cleansing process along.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO PREPARE FOR A TREATMENT?

A full meal should be avoided for at least two hours prior, however, a light snack within the hour is fine.
If a person is sensitive to caffeine or other stimulants, ie high dosage of sugar, it’s best avoided the day of treatment.
