What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive natural therapy that reduces pain and tension and induces deep relaxation, ultimately benefitting overall health and wellness. This is based on the theory that different points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body. The feet can be considered as mini-maps of the human body, with each organ, gland and part of the body linked to a corresponding reflex area or point in the foot. By targeting a certain area or point, Reflexology speeds relief to the corresponding part of the body.
Is it suitable for me?
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between.
Is Reflexology a medical treatment?
No. Reflexology is not a medical treatment, nor is it a foot massage. Rather, Reflexology is a distinct system of natural healing. It is recommended as a complementary therapy and should not replace medical treatment. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
As a well trained reflexologist I do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your well being.
Does Reflexology hurt?
No. Reflexology is a relaxing healing therapy and is safe to practice on persons of all ages, including children and seniors.
Will you use any tools?
No. Only the reflexologists thumb and fingers are used during a session
How long does each session last?
Session can be booked for 60 or 75 minutes long and begin with a consultation about your health and lifestyle. You are then asked to remove your shoes and socks and sit comfortably in a reclining chair. Otherwise you remain fully clothed. The reflexologist will assess your feet and identify areas of tenderness or tension. The reflexologist then uses brisk movements to warm the feet up. Then pressure is applied from the toes to the heel according to your comfort. Lotion or oil may be used.
What do I need to wear?
It is important that you feel comfortable during a session so loose fitting clothes are ideal so the reflexologist can access your feet and ankles.
How often should I have a treatment?
Having completed a course of Reflexology sessions, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular sessions to maintain health and well-being. I can discuss this with you during your first visit.
