What to expect during your treatment.
Before beginning your treatment, we will conduct a consultation. You will have the time and space to talk about your reasons for seeking treatment and discuss any issues affecting your well-being, health, work, relationships etc.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions and consider the details of your treatment. This treatment could contain aromatherapy, massage, reflexology or a combination of treatments. We will discuss what you need to be comfortable along with your treatments depth of pressure creating a treatment designed to meet to your individual needs.
Treatment designed to meet your needs.
The first consultation will last up to half an hour and is free of charge. Subsequent consultations may last 15 minutes and will include feedback from your last treatment and your needs for that particular session. It is therefore a good idea to add 15 minutes to the total length of time you have booked. This extra time is not charged.
Please contact me in advance to discuss any concerns you have regarding any aspects of your treatment. You can contact me by phone, text or email, or simply discuss your concerns during your consultation.
Access and accommodation
My treatment couch is fully height adjustable to accommodate people with limited flexibility. It is possible to give massage in a massage chair, a normal chair, or in a supported side-lying position.
The treatment room is upstairs and therefore not accessible to some people. Therefore I will make home visits to anyone within a 5 mile radius of Cardiff at no extra charge. Please contact me so that I may resolve any accessibility issues prior to your treatment.
If you are receiving a reflexology treatment, you will be asked to remove your footwear and sock/ tights, and made comfortable on the reclining chair- or another bench or chair- depending on your mobility and needs. A thorough foot examination will be carried out prior to your reflexology treatment.
If you are having a massage, I will leave the room to allow you to disrobe and get comfortable. If you have any anxieties regarding removing clothing, please contact me. It is possible to conduct massage through clothing , seated, and for a shorter session than usual if needed. It is my priority that you are comfortable and at ease.
If you have decided to include aromatherapy as part of your treatment, a unique blend will be created in collaboration with you during your consultation.
Scope of your treatment
As your therapist, I will not make any form of diagnosis, however my training does equip me to recommend you see your doctor if you present with certain symptoms, and there are certain circumstances in which I will not treat you until medical advice has been sought. This is usually following a serious accident or illness, or if I feel your symptoms might suggest a visit to the doctor. It is advisable to discuss any health concerns and special requirements you may have when you make your treatment booking.
