What may happen after a treatment?
Even though reflexology is a gentle treatment, it can have a quite powerful effect. Occasionally, symptoms may temporarily become worse after a treatment. This is what is known as a ‘healing crisis’. As your body responds to a treatment it rids itself of toxins and impurities, which may cause you to temporarily feel tired and sluggish. For example, you might find that your sinuses are feeling more blocked before they start draining. By contrast, you may immediately experience an increased sense of well being and relaxation, an improvement in mood, vitality and sleep pattern.
How to maximize the benefits of your treatment
Try not to have any heavy meals before and after a treatment and avoid alcohol and coffee, if possible. It is advisable to drink plenty of water after a treatment, which will help your body to get rid of any toxins. Ideally, it is also good to have a rest. This will allow your body to respond better to healing.
