What is Reflexology
Traditionally worked on the feet, Reflexology treats the whole person, creating a state of harmony in both mind and body, it’s like meditating without effort. It is incredibly relaxing and when the body is relaxed it is then able to heal, restore and energise itself.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages, from baby to adult, and can be especially helpful for long-term and recurring conditions. Whilst it is always interesting to note which reflex points are affected on your feet reflexology should not be used as a diagnosis tool or as an alternative to conventional medicine.
Reflexology is a natural therapy based on the belief your body is mapped on your feet. Specific areas correspond to organs, glands, muscles and structure. By applying gentle pressure to targeted areas of the feet it can help the body restore its own healthy balance. The earliest evidence of hand and foot massage was discovered in Egypt in the tomb of Ankhmahor. The Ancient Chinese worked the hands and feet to maintain good health and prevent disease and traditional Ayurvedic medicine also incorporates hand and foot massage.
This wonderfully relaxing treatment has all the benefits of foot reflexology with the added bonus of improving the appearance of the face. Specific reflex and nerve points are stimulated on the face to aid the body to balance and heal itself.
Improve your appearance from the inside out. This holistic treatment is being hailed as a natural alternative to botox and fillers.
Feet are so important to good health, if you wear shoes which are too tight or injure your foot it can affect how you place your foot when walking and ultimately have an effect on your health and well-being.
I offer Structural Reflexology sessions which combine reflexology with massage to the feet and lower legs along with a gentle mobilisation of the feet. It aims to release tension in the feet as a result of muscle and ligament strain and it allows the bones of the feet to settle back into their position with improved functionality.
Here are a few of the more common conditions that can be supported through Reflexology:
Headaches and migraines
Stress, anxiety & low mood
High blood pressure
Insomnia & sleep disorders
Hormonal imbalances, perimenopausal and fertility
