Reflexology Case Study- Treatment 3

by lrmetcalfe

Treatment Plan

My client has nearly recovered from her cold, she is producing a lot of mucus, which is a good sign and shows the body is ridding itself of the infection.

She has cut down the medication she takes for her anxiety to 5mg every other day; she is currently having no ill-effects from this, which she has experienced in the past when reducing her dosage. This is a major achievement for my client.

As usual, the client’s main wish from the treatment was to feel relaxed.

 

The Treatment

The treatment started by cleansing the feet and relaxing breathing and foot manipulation techniques. To encourage relaxation and to relieve anxiety I decided to focus on the reflexes for the head, pituitary and adrenal glands. Due to the client’s cold I also paid a little more attention to the sinuses, eyes, nose and face reflexes.

The client had dramatically less ‘popping’ on her reflexes today. She only had a little ‘popping’ on the shoulder reflexes. The shoulders are a reflex which commonly ‘pop’ showing an imbalance in this area. Most of us hold a lot of tension in the shoulder especially those of us who sit at a desk all day, or women who carry heavy handbags.

I used the same massage oil blend- almond oil with ginger, lavender and black pepper essential oil, as the client really liked it last time.

 

Feedback

At the end of the treatment the client said she felt relaxed.

 

Changes/ Areas to focus on for the next treatment

The client chattered through most of the treatment. Next time I want to concentrate on getting her to focus on relaxation more. I may try and get her to do breathing techniques throughout her treatment to encourage relaxation.

 

Aftercare

Client is drinking more water and has been taking her multivitamin and mineral tablets.

I have spoken to her about exercise, being good for anxiety- related conditions and she has started going for daily walks.

So her aftercare this week is to keep up the good work.
