I’ve never had a reflexology treatment before or even a massage, the thought of taking my clothes off and having a stranger touch me sends me running in the opposite direction! I could just about manage to take my shoes and socks off for my fellow colleagues to practice on me. Having desperately pumiced and moisturised my feet the night before our first day of training, I still felt slightly awkward sitting in a reclining chair with my feet in a strangers face wondering what they must think of my feet. I found it quite hard to switch my mind off, sitting there worrying about whether the kids had been fed on time and thinking about all the jobs I had to do. Everyone else had their eyes shut and seemed to relax straight into it, the trainer joked that she would have me falling asleep by the end of our training, (I don’t think so). I had a headache that evening as I forgot to drink water throughout the day and particularly after having reflexology all afternoon.
It turns out the trainer was right, by the second weekend I really felt myself relaxing as my feet were being worked on, I’m sure I actually nodded off and woke myself up snorting at one point but no one else seemed to notice thank goodness! In between training weekends we had many case studies to get through, juggling this with my family was difficult and each week my stress levels were rising. Another weekend of having reflexology and I left feeling totally relaxed, refreshed and ready for the week ahead. Each month my stress levels would rise, I had another weekend of training and reflexology treatments and I left feeling totally relaxed. By the time the course finished I realised how much I was enjoying having reflexology and I might actually have to contact one of my fellow students for a regular treatment swap once we are qualified. It made me realise that actually I don’t stop, or have much time out to fully relax and it’s really important and beneficial to do something relaxing for yourself.
