What is Reflexology?

 

Reflexology is a technique of applying gentle pressure to reflex areas or points on the feet or hands in order to bring about a state of deep relaxation, stimulate the body's own healing processes and help a person to return to a state of balance and wellbeing.  It is a non intrusive complementary health therapy which is based on the belief that different points on the feet, lower leg and hands are directly linked to specific body systems and organs.  Reflexology aims to increase the body's circulation, open up neural pathways and boost the immune system. Reflexologists work holistically and aim to work alongside healthcare professionals to achieve better health for their clients.

Is Reflexology suitable for me?

Reflexology treatment can be given to anyone at any age including new born babies and those receiving end of life care.  However, there are a few occasions where Reflexology is not recommended.  The best advice I can give is to contact me for informed professional advice.  

Will Reflexology help me?

As a professional well trained Reflexologist I do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.  Reflexology treatments are tailored to suit every individual's needs and treat the whole person.  A treatment plan, which is agreed with you the client, takes into account both physical and emotional factors together with your medical history.

With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, at times we can find ourselves feeling out of sorts. Our body needs equilibrium to work healthily and even a light Reflexology treatment can help restore a sense of balance.  As more people become enlightened in relation to taking responsibilty for their own health, Reflexology may be one effective way to mitigate the stresses of modern life.

What happens during a treatment?

At the start of your first treatment a full medical history will be requested and you will be asked to sign a consent form.  All information is kept on a strictly confidential basis.  

To receive the treatment, you will be required to remove your shoes and socks only.  During the treatment the therapist will use their hands to apply pressure to the feet, lower leg or hands, depending on the type of Reflexology chosen.  You may feel some areas are more sensitive than others but generally this should be a deeply relaxing experience.  A full treatment should last approximately 45 minutes,  but your initial consultation will take additional time.

How will I feel after a treatment?

Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The therapist's expert touch will help you relax, which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.  Following each treatment you will be provided with detailed after care advice.
