Reflexology

What is Reflexology

Reflexology is a technique that applies pressure and massage to areas on your feet. You have reflex areas in your feet that match every part of your body. There is a map of the left side of your body on your left foot, and the right side of your body on your right foot. For example, your left big toe represents the left side of your head, and a point around the ball of your right foot represents your right lung. Reflexology has been used for centuries. It is thought to have been developed originally by the ancient Egyptians. It is one of the most popular types of complementary therapy in the UK among people with cancer. The systematic way Reflexology stimulates the corresponding organs in your body releases your body’s natural healing powers and encourages restoration of health. Stimulating these Reflex areas encourages the healing process, working on energy pathways similar to those used in acupuncture.  There have been many positive research projects carried out with reflexology; however, as yet, there is not a large enough body of evidence to make medical claims of effectiveness. 

What to Expect

On your first visit, you'll be asked some general questions about your health, lifestyle and medical history. Consultations take between 10 and 20 minutes and do not impact on your treatment time. If there are any concerns that reflexology could interfere with your health, or with any drugs you are currently taking, you will be asked to speak to your GP just to ensure Reflex is right for you. A reflexology session usually lasts between 45 to 60 minutes. You’ll usually lie down for the treatment or sit in a reclining chair. Your reflexologist will use their fingers and thumbs to apply pressure to your feet or hands. Most people say that having reflexology feels relaxing and soothing. Pressure on some areas may be uncomfortable or slightly painful. This discomfort can indicate problems in a particular part of your body.

Give It A Go

Reflexologists 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 wellbeing. Some people find it works for them - others don't. The best way to find out is to give iit a go!

If Your Feet Hurt, You Hurt All Over

Reflexology can also be used simpily to ease aching feet, ankles and legs.   There's nothing worse than aching, sore feet.  It can make all of you ache and drain your energy.  A lot of my clients are dancers...who find huge relief from a Reflex session.
