What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is based on the theory that ‘reflex’ points on the feet and hands correspond with different areas of the body. Massaging these reflex points can improve overall wellbeing and restore balance to the body, mind and emotions.
What happens during a treatment?
After a medical and lifestyle consultation, you’ll be asked to lie down, face up and fully clothed. Your socks will be removed and your feet will be cleansed with water and tea tree essential oil before a natural reflexology wax is applied (with a tailored blend of essential oils if you’ve opted to fuse this therapy with Aromatherapy). A range of specialised techniques will be applied to the soles, sides and tops of your feet using fingers, thumbs and knuckles. You may feel some ‘crunching’ or tenderness on the reflex point, or experience other sensations around your body or emotions – all of which is completely normal. The areas treated and pressure used will be adapted to meet your needs and we may show you some techniques to use at home.
Who is it good for?
As the whole body is essential ‘mapped’ out in the feet, Reflexology can be helpful for a wide range of conditions, including:
- Aches and Pains
- Anxiety, Depression and Stress
- Chronic Fatigue
- Digestive Issues and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Hyperglycaemia and Hypoglycaemia
- Menopause Symptoms
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Muscular Tension
- Premenstrual Syndrome
- Sinus Problems
What does it ‘fuse’ well with?
As Reflexology works on the whole body, it’s fuses well with most other therapies and is typically a deeply relaxing treatment.
