Reflex areas on the feet are linked to systems and organs of the body.
A gentle massage of the feet is restorative to the whole body.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy, which works on the feet to
help heal the whole person and not just the prevailing symptoms.
How can reflexology help me?
Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body's natural
equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally
to restore its own healthy balance.
Reflexology has been shown to be effective for:
· Back Pain
· Sleep disorders
· Hormonal imbalances
· Sports injuries
· Digestive disorders
· Stress-related conditions
Who can benefit from reflexology?
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide
range of acute and chronic conditions.
While many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and
body and counteracting stress, at the same time many doctors,
consultants and other health care professionals recognize reflexology
as a well established, respected and effective therapy.
How will I feel after a reflexology treatment?
After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite
way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation.
Reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.
With ever increasing levels of stress, it is important people take more
responsibility for their own health care needs. Reflexology helps us to
cope on a physical, mental and emotional level thereby encouraging us
to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives.
What happens when I go for treatment?
On the first visit, the reflexology practitioner will have a preliminary talk
with you to determine your present and past health and lifestyle.
The reflexologist will then use their hands to gently massage the feet.
The application and the effect of the therapy is unique to each person.
A professionally trained reflexologist can detect subtle changes in
specific points on the feet, and by working on these points may affect
the corresponding organ or system of the body. A treatment session usually lasts for about one hour.
