Reflexology is a harmless, non-invasive ‘hands on’ therapy applied to the feet or hands, which enables the body to heal itself. Illness, stress, trauma or disease, coupled with the effects of environmental or ‘lifestyle pollutants’, cause the body to be in a state of imbalance. Vital energy pathways are blocked, with a detrimental effect on body function, as well as opening the door to secondary medical conditions.
It is possible to alleviate a wide range of conditions- each reflex point shows indications of the state or condition of the corresponding body part/organ/gland, and thereby alerts the therapist to areas requiring particular attention.
Reflexology can detect potentially vulnerable areas before they begin to manifest problems, thus helping to maintain health, with regular treatments.
REFLEXOLOGY CAN BE USED TO HELP WITH:
What is a treatment like?
A treatment session will last approximately one hour. Your first appointment, however, will be longer as it will include a confidential discussion about your health and lifestyle.
Only your shoes and socks will need to be removed. The treatment will be given by massaging both feet and applying pressure to specific areas using the fingers and thumbs. You may feel brief discomfort in some places. This is just an indication of areas that may be unbalanced or congested and should ease during the treatment.
How will I feel?
Different people react in different ways to treatment. You may notice a sense of well being and feel deeply relaxed. You may feel more tired than usual, tearful or nauseous, or have other mild, temporary symptoms as the body rids itself of toxins and begins the healing process. This is nothing to worry about and is a positive sign that the treatment is working. It is advisable to drink plenty of water after a treatment and, if possible, to rest.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will vary from person to person depending on your state of health and your response to treatment. I will suggest an appropriate number of treatments to you during your first session. It is important that you tell me how you feel after each treatment to help me to monitor your progress and tailor a treatment plan to your needs.
