What Is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a gentle, yet effective therapy practiced on the feet and it is non invasive and totally natural. It is a wonderful natural complementary therapy for fertility, pregnancy, miscarriage, menopause and all things hormonal. It works on the principle that every organ and system in the body has a corresponding reflex point on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands. The stimulation of these reflex points is designed to bring about a shift, or a re balancing of energy levels and thus well being. above all it is deeply relaxing.

Reflexology is a gentle, non invasive therapy which is suitable for all ages from newborns to the elderly in helping to restore the body’s natural balance and rhythm.

The stimulation of these reflex points is designed to bring about a shift, or a re balancing of energy levels and thus well being. Above all it is deeply relaxing.

In all of my treatments I work incorporating Chinese Medicine Theory including the Five Elements. this gives me a tool to focus the body’s energetic patterns in a supportive way. It incorporates many of the techniques used in a conventional treatment but with greater emphasis on particular reflexes and Chinese medicine acupressure points. I can incorporate Mindfulness Reflexology techniques which are aimed specifically at supporting and reducing stress, anxiety and depression.

Reflexology does not diagnose, treat or cure illness, but it supports each individual as a whole, promoting relaxation and improving well being. Each Reflexology treatment is bespoke and is tailored to each individual and provides the much needed time and space to relax and unwind. Some of my clients choose to have Reflexology weekly and some monthly. Clients often tell me that they have a feeling of improved well being, improved mood, calmness and relaxation and improved sleep.

 

What are the benefits of Reflexology?

An individual’s good health depends upon the fine balance of many systems of the body. Feelings of stress, tension and anxiety can have a negative effect upon the endocrine and cardiovascular system and may lead to stress related illnesses.  reflexology can be extremely effective in alleviating stress and improving various hormonal imbalances thereby:

  • Reducing stress levels and the associated symptoms of stress
  • Reducing menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and achy joints
  • Aiding natural fertility and conception
  • Supporting IVF,IUI and medicated fertility cycles
  • Reducing PMS and PMT symptoms
  • Helping to reduce the effects of PCOS and Endometriosis, and improve cycle regularity
  • Reducing many of the discomforts of hormonal disruption in pregnancy
  • Encouraging pregnancy labour
  • Reducing stress and anxiety during pregnancy and following birth

 

My approach to Reflexology

The first treatment will start with an initial confidential holistic consultation which will include a detailed medical history, together with information about diet and lifestyle. This information will enable me to devise an effective personal treatment plan. You should allow 90 minutes for this first treatment, and 60 minutes for subsequent treatments.

During the treatment you will lie on a treatment couch, there’s no need to undress…just socks need to be removed. I have lots of cushions and bolsters to help you to feel comfortable and relaxed. It is lovely to use the treatment time to unwind and to be able get away from the stresses of daily life. Many people find that after a treatment their tension is reduced and that they feel more grounded. People often report that they sleep better and that their mood and sense of well being has improved.

 

Reactions to Reflexology treatments

  • Often people experience a sense of well being and deep relaxation
  • Sometimes there may be a feeling of tiredness, tearfulness, mild headaches, or even the need to go to the toilet more frequently
  • These are normal reaction and Reflexologists believe that these are all part of the healing process and will usually pass within 24 to 48 hours

Reflexology should not be used as an alternative to medical advice
