Foot reading

Foot reading is the analysis of the feet. Through structure and texture, your therapist will be able to identify personality and emotions. 

FHT accredited training provider and foot reading expert Jane Sheehan says, “When you are angry, how do you walk? When you are happy, how do you walk? When you are depressed, how do you walk? Each of these emotions has it's corresponding walk. Over time you can see their impact on the feet.”

Your therapist will start with a full consultation, asking various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure foot reading is right for you.

For the treatment itself you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks. You’ll be invited to relax on a reclining chair or treatment couch, or to put your feet up on a footstool.

Foot reading should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention and advice.
