Treatment

Our recommendation

“Almost everyone – young and old, and those recovering from surgery – can benefit from a Reflexology treatment,” says lead therapist Nadège. “The theory behind it is that specific areas on the hands and feet correspond to the rest of the body. Applying pressure to these areas restores balance within the body and relieve stress.”

During your treatment

Your therapist will begin with a health assessment covering your medical history and any current conditions.

They'll make sure you're comfortable on a chair or a massage table (if they've brought one) before cleansing your feet and using a wax or oil to perform the massage.

Post-treatment, you should feel calmer and better able to manage stress.

FAQ

Probably not the treatment for you if:

You’re feeling unwell and/or you or anyone in your household needs to self-isolate or shield.

You’ve got open wounds on your feet or skin conditions such as verrucas, athlete’s foot or eczema.

You're pregnant. If you're in your second or third trimester, consider our pregnancy massage treatment instead.

Covid-19 safety

After you’ve booked, your therapist may reach out to you via the Urban app to run through some pre-screening checks and make sure a home visit is right for you. If it’s not, they’ll advise what to do instead and we’ll refund you in full.

All Urban pros are trained in Covid-19 safety and will wear a mask and full PPE to your appointment. You’ll also need to wear a mask, wash your hands and help your pro avoid contact with other members of your household.
