Reflexology is a wonderful supportive complementary therapy which can aid women throughout all the life transitions, from the onset of menstruation, and puberty, through to fertility, pregnancy, peri- menopause and the menopause. The hormonal changes which which occur at all of these stages are powerful and unique but may at times lead the body to be in a state of imbalance.
Reflexology may help to regulate hormonal levels and calm the central nervous system in a natural way. Treatment sessions can also become part of self care and are a wonderful pampering experience promoting relaxation and well being at the deepest level.
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 may help to alleviate symptoms of:
- Pre menstrual syndrome
- Dysmenorrhoea Painful periods
- Menorrhagia (heavy periods)
- Irregular periods
- Menopause and Peri – menopause
