Project Description

Reflexology

Reflexology

The origins of reflexology are thought to date from about 5,000 years ago from China and the East.

It’s a gentle therapy that promotes relaxation, restores balance and can help you to manage your health. It works by detecting and correcting imbalances in the body by applying precise therapeutic techniques to specific reflex areas on the feet or hands.

It’s not just a massage and nor is it a substitute for medical treatment. It helps improve circulation and promote relaxation enabling the client’s body to help itself.

Reflexology balances the body and promotes self healing through:

Enabling you to achieve deep relaxation

Boosting your immune system

Stimulating circulation

Removing toxins

Stabilising breathing

Boosting energy levels

Inducing calm in mind and body

Your reflexologist will start with a detailed consultation asking you about any particular concerns or symptoms. You will then recline on the couch and they will start to work on your feet, by stimulating the reflex points through various techniques and pressure, the Reflexologist revitalises energy pathways, reduces blockages and triggers the body’s natural healing processes. Reflexology is a holistic treatment so, although we will always look to address the key concerns of the client and work on these areas, we will also treat the whole body each time the healing process and energy pathways to remain clear. The treatment should never feel painful, but sometimes can be a little uncomfortable in parts when stimulating some of the reflexes and releasing toxins and energy. Your therapist will always drain any toxins back through the lymphatic system, so drinking plenty of water within the first 24 hours after treatment is important to flush through the system and aid the healing process.
Reflexology is very relaxing and is excellent in releasing stress and tension. It may also help with conditions including migraine, insomnia, premenstrual tension, arthritis, digestive and respiratory problems. Reflexology is particularly good in aiding recovery after illness, it can help restore calm by balancing blood pressure and stress hormone levels (cortisol), boosts circulation and blood flow, can help with pain management*, aids mobility and can even be used to help with fertility. Reflexoloy is not intended to provide a substitute for medicine and should work in a complementary way.
