Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect on my first visit?
Whatever treatment you choose, your first appointment will include a consultation where you will be asked questions about your health and lifestyle. This is an important aspect of the treatment as the therapist should have an understanding of all the factors that may be affecting your health. All information will be held in strictest confidence. If you are suffering from a serious medical condition or are under medical supervision, you may be asked to receive medical clearance before having a treatment.
How long does a treatment take?
Holistic Aromatherapy, Facial Rejuvenation, Ayurvedic Facelift Massage, Natural Facials, Ayurvedic Foot Massage and Reflexology treatments take approximately one hour and an Indian Head Massage treatment takes 40 minutes. Ear Candling treatments include a face massage and take 45 minutes.
During pregnancy, a shorter treatment of 30-40 minutes is recommended. It is advisable to wait until after the first 3 months of pregnancy before having treatments. First appointments for all treatments take a little extra consultation time.
How will I feel after my treatment?
Most people feel very relaxed. Depending on the treatment you have, some people experience relief from aches and pains; many feel a little slowed down for a short period and then notice an increase of energy, heightened awareness and increased productivity which can last for days. Regular Facial Rejuvenation clients report compliments from their friends on how well they look! If you received a deep massage, you may be slightly sore the next day – much like a good workout at the gym. After your session you should increase your water intake a bit. Just a glass or two more than normal is usually fine. This helps keep your body’s tissues hydrated and healthy.
How often should I have a treatment?
Again – it depends on the treatment – often clients have a weekly treatment to help to relieve particular conditions and once it is decided that their body is balanced and responding well, they might move to fortnightly then monthly maintenance treatments or purely for the calming and relaxing benefits. Facial Rejuvenation works best with 6 treatments close together – ideally once or even twice a week – and then every 3-4 weeks to maintain the benefits. To maintain good health, it is best to have regular complementary therapy treatments; however some people enjoy coming on an ad-hoc basis as a treat.
