Therapies, massage treatments, counselling » Reflexology
This is an ancient healing art using reflexes on the feet or hands to treat the body's organs and functions. Reflexologists mainly treat the feet as they are more sensitive and give a larger area to work on. Don't worry if you have ticklish feet as reflexology uses firm pressure in a precise and systematic way encouraging a subtle healing effect within the body.
Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body's natural equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance.
Reflexology has shown to be effective for:
- Back Pain
- Sleep Disorders
- Sports Injuries
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Digestive disorders
- Stress related conditions
While many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress, at the same time many doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as a well estbalished, respected and effective therapy.
On the first visit, the reflexology practitioner will have a preliminary talk with you to determine your present and past health and lifestyle.
The reflexologist will then use their hands to apply pressure to the feet. A professionally trained relfexologist can detect subtle changes in specific points on the feet and by working on these points may affect the corresponding organ or system of the body.
