Reflexology

What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary therapy where the therapist works on the feet or hands. Reflex points on the feet and hands correspond to the organs, structures and systems of the body. In a reflexology treatment, pressure is applied to these points, using thumb, finger and hand techniques, to bring the body into balance. Reflexology elicits a relaxation response in the body and this, in turn, allows the body’s natural healing to take place.
The body is always seeking to return to a state of equilibrium, known as homeostasis. It is a miracle of nature how the body can heal itself when the optimum conditions are provided. Unfortunately, due to the stresses of a modern life-style, our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing is often compromised and the body is unable to heal itself naturally. Reflexology is a holistic therapy, treating the person as a whole, rather than a collection of symptoms. The therapist can detect tension in the body and help to bring relaxation, balance and healing.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy and does not replace medical care. The therapist does not claim to diagnose, prescribe or cure.
How can reflexology help you?
Reflexology is suitable for all, including children, the elderly and infirm.  Scientific research in 21 countries has shown that reflexology is effective for many physical and psychological conditions.
Reflexology may be helpful in:
  • Creating a relaxation response in the body/mind
  • Reducing pain
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Easing stress and worry
  • Improving blood flow
  • Aiding recovery from illness and surgery
  • Benefiting mental health
  • Complementing medical care
  • Easing pregnancy, labour and post natal recovery
  • Improving fertility levels
  • In general, reflexology can have a balancing effect, for example on hormone levels and blood pressure
What happens during a treatment?
On your first appointment I will discuss with you your general health, past problems and current health concerns in order to tailor the treatment to your needs. The treatment will last approximately 50 minutes and I will work on your feet, applying pressure with my thumbs, fingers and hands, as appropriate. You should feel relaxed and comfortable. There may be some areas of sensitivity but you should not feel pain during the treatment. A course of several treatments may be recommended, depending on your individual needs.
