Reflexology

Reflexology is a truly holistic treatment using massage to reflex areas found in the feet and the hands. Most commonly, the feet are used as the areas to be treated.

There are points on the feet (and hands) that correspond to all parts of the body and these are arranged in such a way as to form a map of the body in the feet. By having the whole body represented in the feet, this method offers a means of treating the whole body and of treating the body as a whole. This latter point is an important factor of a natural therapy and allows not only symptoms to be treated but also the causes of the symptoms.

This method has been used for thousands of years and is known to have been practiced in a similar manner by the ancient Egyptians.

What to expect from a Reflexology treatment

When first visiting a Reflexologist a detailed medical history will be taken. The patient will then be seated in a reclining chair and will be asked to remove their shoes and socks.
The practitioner will initially examine the feet before commencing with the precise technique. The reflexologist applies pressure using the side and end of the thumb, covering all areas on both feet.
Areas corresponding to parts of the body which are out of balance will feel uncomfortable or tender when massaged, and the degree of tenderness will indicate the degree of imbalance. The sensitivity of the feet varies from person to person and the trained practitioner will understand the correct pressure to apply. The massage should not be uncomfortable, even to the most sensitive of feet. In fact, the treatment is generally found to be extremely relaxing.
The full treatment session will last about 60 minutes and at the end of the session the patient should feel relaxed.

The number of treatments required will vary depending on the condition being treated.

Following treatment it's sometimes possible that the eliminating systems of the body become more active in order to rid the body of unwanted toxic matter. However, when treatment is correctly applied, these reactions would not be severe.

Reflexology is a particularly pleasant means of treatment and a means of maintaining the body in good health. I have successfully treated many women with infertility issues, and they are now all very proud Mums! I have also had excellent results for treating back pain, knee pain, headaches, migraines and sciatica, and I've found that clients suffering from depression have noticed a marked improvement in their day-to-day sense of well-being.
