It is advisable to wear loose comfy clothing so you can fully relax and not feel restricted by tight belts or clothes. You must remove your shoes and socks for the treatment and its preferable that your trousers can be rolled to knee height.

A thumb and finger walking technique is used all over the foot. It is a firm movement that neither hurts nor tickles. The pressure is increased or decreased according to your needs. Discomfort may be felt in areas that are out of balance or congested but this should only last briefly and if necessary, I will move on from that area.
Such wonderful happy news and yes, you can. I am trained in maternity reflexology. Reflexology is a non-intrusive therapy but always discuss treatment with your health care practitioner. I prefer if mums-to-be wait until the pregnancy is in the second trimester before starting reflexology.
Everybody reacts differently but clients usually feel immensely calm and relaxed. Most people report having a fabulous night sleep. You may feel quite thirsty so I ask clients to increase their water intake following a reflexology session
No, as a complementary therapist I am unable to give a diagnosis. However, your feet will highlight areas of stress and congestion and I will discuss this with you. Concerns about a medical condition must be directed to your GP.
For the Reiki treatment you will lie down or sit comfortably. Your coat and shoes are the only items of clothing that are removed. The Reiki practitioner will place their hands on or near your body, allowing the Reiki energy to flow to you.
Everyone has a different experience but deep relaxation is the most common occurrence. A wonderful energy flows through the individual helping to release tension and negativity. Clients report that they feel refreshed and positive following the session.
Yes, it is safe. Reiki is not invasive and is practiced with a light touch or no touch at all. There are no known medical contraindications.
A free in-depth consultation will be completed to establish your main skin concerns and determine the appropriate course of treatment to achieve desired results.
Preferably not. Skin treatments usually include exfoliation that irritates freshly waxed skin since waxing exposes a new layer of skin. If you wax after the skin treatment, we must avoid applying product to the area being waxed so that area of your skin misses out on the benefit of highly active ingredients.
Yes, you can as all product is removed from your skin at the start of the treatment.
I strongly advise not to. However, if you must keep it minimal, a mineral powder base, mascara and lip gloss. Please ensure before you sleep that night that you remove every trace of makeup on your skin followed by an application of serum and moisturiser.
This depends on the condition of the skin. There may simply be too many blackheads to remove in one facial session. If the skin is very dehydrated pores tend to be tight increasing the difficulty of removing blackheads. And finally, the skin can only be steamed for so long. Once steam is removed from the skin the softening action ceases and the pore shrinks and tightens lessening the ease of blackhead removal.
At least a quarter of a mm which is roughly the length of a grain of rice. Due to the hair growth cycle, not all hairs will be at the same stage of growth. Therefore, it takes a few waxes to acquire silky smooth skin.
About 2 weeks, depending on how quickly your hair grows.
Schedule your wax on your lighter days of flow and a tampon must be worn. Waxing during your period may be more painful for some individuals.
Clients should not use sunbeds or lie in the sun for 24 - 48 hours before or after waxing services, depending on skin sensitivity. Skin that is sunburned or irritated cannot be waxed.
Loose, comfortable, dark clothing.
Wear loose comfortable dark clothes that you do not care about (in case they get stained). Avoid tight straps or you may prefer to go braless. Do not wear tight closed in shoes.
In the days prior to your tan exfoliate and moisturise your whole body paying particular attention to dry, rough skin. Remember to shave before your tan. Wax at least 48 hours prior to a spray tan. On the day of the tan ensure you wash off all soap or gel in the shower and do not apply oils or moisturiser to the skin.
It is important to keep the skin well moisturised to extend the life of your tan so moisturise every day. Do not use products that are strongly perfumed, contain essential oils, or have a high chemical content. Minimise shaving as it has an exfoliating action and lightens your tan.
And finally, as we have such inclement weather here in Ireland bring something to protect your tan from drops of rain. Park as close as you can to the building.
