Two months ago a new client came for her first ever reflexology treatment, the reason for coming, she wanted to get pregnant. and a couple of her friends suggested it might help. She already has 6 year old child and has been trying to conceive for the last two years. This was to be a last attempt before giving up. For 15 years she had suffered Rheumatoid Arthritis, which causes swelling and stiffness in her hands.. She had not worn her wedding ring for years and her fingers were visibly swollen and stiff.
(I was sure it would work but didn't say anything)
During the reflexology she felt tingling in her arms, hands and fingers, (normally felt during RLD in clients with lymphoedema). Immediately after the session her fingers were more flexible and swelling seemed to have gone down. She left feeling relaxed and happy and I didn't hear from her again until last week, when she returned, asking for the same again! Her hands have been much better, and she's been able to wear her wedding ring.!
Feedback from the first session ~ her hands felt unexpectedly easier, she thought at best she'd get a few days relief, which would have been a real bonus. In reality, the relief lasted two whole months before some of the discomfort began to return!
The second reflexology treatment was as before, and she felt the same tingling sensations and an immediate improvement!
