Hey fever remedies
There are many treatments on the market for hay fever most of which focus around
Natural hay fever remedies
Reflexology naturally balances the body and so can be amazing for allergies. 5 short sharp bursts of reflexology daily can make a quick difference. Clients find that in just a few days with this intensive programme they can stop taking their tablets and start enjoying life naturally again.
You will require a maintenance programme, but the frequency of this will be down to yourself and your individual requirements,
How long does it take to see results?
Everyone is different, but in the cases that we have treated with this intensive hay fever course of reflexology, we have seen results within a few days.
Can children with hay fever have this?
Yes, reflexology is a natural therapy and is suitable for anyone of all ages.
I have asthma and hay fever, will this help?
Whilst we must make it clear that everyone is different and there is never a one size fits all solution, reflexology can be really helpful for people suffering from asthma as well as hay fever. We will combine the two in to one treatment, although for best effect after your initial 5 quick fire hay fever buster session you may find it more helpful to have a full reflexology session for your maintenance plan. We can see how you are doing though and decide this based on your results at the time.
Is there a consultation process?
Yes. If you have a computer, to save your treatment time, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along for your reflexology treatment. This will allow you to detail any conditions you have such as aches and pains, allergies etc. This form will remain confidential between you and your therapist. You will need to sign the form to say that you are happy to go ahead with the treatment.
When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand what you would like to get out of your reflexology and establish any areas that will require additional treatment.
Where will I be treated?
Your reflexology treatment will be in a comfortable, calm treatment room with soft lighting.
What will happen during the treatment?
During your reflexology therapy, you will be seated in a specialist chair. You will need to take off your shoes and socks/ stockings. Then during the treatment we will keep the foot that isn’t being worked on covered with soft towels to keep it warm whilst your other foot is being treated.
Please note, this is not a full reflexology session -
What do I do during a reflexology treatment?
Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, he or she will either move you or will ask you to move as necessary. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. This is your time, whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.
During reflexology your body releases toxins. This process can mean that your body temperature can change at any time, so please do say if you become cold. Likewise, if the pressure is too light or hard, then please feel free to say as everyone is different.
How will I feel after reflexology?
Most people feel really relaxed after reflexology, however, most people will then feel rejuvenated and full of energy. You may experience some aches and pains for around 24 hours after your treatment as the body flushes the toxins that have been released. In order to speed this process along, drink lots of water after reflexology.
Why would I not be able to have a reflexology treatment?
There are a few illnesses which mean reflexology would not be the best holistic therapy for you. In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with reflexology, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.
What conditions are not suitable for reflexology?
Contagious or notifiable diseases
Immediately before or after surgery
Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
Within the first 3 months of pregnancy
