What Can Reflexology Do?

Through practicing this thearapy for 19 years, I have seen how numerous and various conditions can be helped or alliviated even on occasions when the body has not responded to conventional methods alone as it can:

  • Reduce stress and induce relaxation
  • Improve the circulation
  • Cleanse the body of toxins and impurities
  • Revitalise the body’s energy
  • Help to ensure the body’s systems are kept in balance
  • Stimulate the body’s own healing system
  • Strengthen the immune system.

What Is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a modern application of ancient healing skills originating from China 5,000 years ago. It is a complementary therapy now recognised worldwide as an effective healing technique. Being a holistic therapy, reflexology treats the body as a whole, dealing with the underlying cause of a disorder and not just the symptoms. The practitioner applies gentle pressure to precise reflex points on the feet or hands, to help the body’s energy flow to be restored to its natural balance. Reflexology is an effective way of helping the body to relax by reducing tension and stress. This is of great importance to our well being, as it is recognised by medical professionals that over 75% of all illnesses are stress related.

The Treatment Session

The reflexology treatment takes between 45 and 60 minutes. The number of sessions required varies, but it is typically between four and six weekly treatments, usually followed by monthly ‘maintenance’ sessions.

Using thumbs and fingers, the practitioner applies slight pressure to precise reflex points, mainly on the feet, but sometimes on the hands. The pressure is not heavy but positive, and surprisingly, not ticklish. Energy imbalances are detected by the practitioner as ‘gritty crystals’ – you may feel a slight pricking or bruised sensation.

During the treatment your feet are raised in a reclined position, in a bespoke reflexology chair which induces greater relaxation and allows easy access to the feet.

It is usual for a healing reaction to occur either during or following a treatment. This may be in the form of a headache, runny nose, or an increased passing of urine. This is a result of the body trying to rid itself of toxins.
