SERVICES

Required for any first time clients wishing to have reflexology with us. This essential consultation ensures that your treatments are tailored to you via a comprehensive intake form and detailed foot (or hand) analysis. A foot or hand chart is also updated during your treatment. 

You'll enjoy a therapeutic foot spa while we complete your intake form, plenty of hands-on treatment time, heated towels at the end of your treatment for added relaxation, and your choice of herbal tea or infused water to drink during your post-treatment care and recommendations. 

REFLEXOLOGY - FEET/HANDS

45 min - $70 |60 min - $85 | 75 min - $100

After your initial consultation, all subsequent appointments start with a quick check in with you and a brief exam of the areas to be worked, to see whether any adjustments are needed for your treatment. You'll then lie back and relax for hands-on time with your therapist.

Any observations made by either you or your therapist are recorded on a chart. 

Heated towels are used for a spa-like end to your treatment, after which 5-10 minutes is spent on post-treatment care and recommendations. During this time you'll be offered your choice of herbal tea or infused water.

As with all our treatments, time will be left at the end of your session for post-treatment care, which will be accompanied by your choice of herbal tea or infused water. 

AURICULAR THERAPY

FEEDBACK

super relaxing...

'I must say I have been so impressed with reflexology. It's super relaxing and Natasha is an excellent therapist. I sleep sooo well after a session and I'm quite amazed at how our bodies, aches and pains are reflected in our wee tootsies. I recommend you give it a go!'

INTRODUCING NATASHA

Hi, I'm Natasha, owner and lead practitioner at tactile therapy.​ I'm a keen traveller, eater of all the yummy things, owner of way too much dri-fit and a runaway corporate.

In a previous life I worked in learning & development and then as a change manager. For many years I felt there was something else I should be doing but I could never work out what that thing was. I just knew that it needed to be about helping people, it had to be something I could become skilled in, and it had to be something with professional accreditation and development. 

In 2014 I had my very first reflexology treatment. I floated away from that session feeling relaxed and content and remember thinking what a nice thing it was that my reflexologist was doing for people.

 

It took until 2018 for me to realise that I wanted to be able to do the same thing for others and I've been studying and practicing reflexology ever since.

 

These days I practice in a space in Castor Bay that I hope you'll look forward to visiting, and that you'll leave feeling the same way I did when I first tried reflexology. Till then, feel free to explore this site and do get in touch if you have any further questions. 

 

Warm regards, 

Natasha | proud owner and fully qualified reflexologist
