Follow up appointments are 60 minutes long. As a qualified fertility reflexologist any follow up appointment can alternate between acupuncture and reflexology if preferred. Each appointment is time for you to have a dedicated hour to talk or relax and rest.
'' I see Michaela most weeks and we alternate between acupuncture and facial reflexology session. She is great at explaining what she is doing and why but also allowing you to relax at the right time. I would highly recommend Michaela for both acupuncture and reflexology. It is great to have found someone who is able to offer both services.''
