Reflexology

Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body.  Reflexology provides pressure massage to the feet in order to stimulate the reflex points and bring about a balance of the bodily systems, helping the body to rebalance, detoxify and self-heal.  It offers relief for a wide range of conditions affecting all of the body’s systems such as:

 

  • Digestive disorders
  • PMS
  • Back and joint pain
  • Constipation
  • Headaches/migraineFertility issues
  • Menopausal problems
  • Insomnia
  • Stress related disorders

 

 

 

The Reflexology treatment

 

A reflexology treatment lasts for about an hour.  The first reflexology treatment will include a consultation which will take about 15 minutes.  Only your shoes and socks are removed, and your feet are first cleansed with a refreshing foot balm.  All the reflex areas on the feet are massaged using specific techniques to identify areas of imbalance, and then to help release blocked energy, encourage the healing process, and bring about potential benefits and relief of symptoms. After working over the whole foot, I will focus further massage on those areas needing extra attention.   At the end of the treatment a general foot and lower leg massage is carried out to complete the treatment and to disperse toxins released by the reflexology treatment.

 

Some medical conditions may need your GP’s approval before reflexology is given, e.g. diabetes, heart problems, blood pressure.

 

If you suffer from any of these conditions please phone me before making an appointment to check whether you will need to get you GP’s approval for reflexology prior to your visit.
