What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an ancient healing technique which works on the principle that different points on the feet, ankles and hands (reflex points) correspond with different areas of the body. By applying special pressure techniques to these areas, imbalances are identified and the body's own natural healing process is triggered. In short the whole person is treated and not just the symptoms.
Traditionally, reflexology is given to the soles of the feet, but I also use an additional technique called Vertical Reflexology (VRT). In VRT the top of the feet and hands are worked for a few minutes as well, sometimes at the same time, which accelerates the healing process further.
Is Reflexology suitable for me?
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between.
What happens during a treatment?
For the first treatment I will take you through a medical and lifestyle consultation, which will be kept confidential. This will help me to establish if reflexology is right for you and tailor the treatment to your needs.
After I have examined your feet, I may begin with some vertical techniques. You will then relax in a reclining chair or couch, where I will use a range of relaxation and pressure techniques to the feet, ankles and lower legs. Sometimes you may feel slight areas of tenderness when pressed. This may be the result of an imbalance in the body, but will only last for a short time. Generally the experience should be deeply relaxing. Afterwards we will discuss the treatment.
How will I feel afterwards
You may experience any of the following:
• Very relaxed
• Your mood may have improved
• Increase in feeling of wellbeing
• Release of tension in your body
Anything I need to do afterwards?
Yes drink plenty of water on the day of the treatment and try and rest if possible.
Your body will start to make positive changes, including the release and excretion of harmful toxins. Some people may therefore experience a mild headache, feeling tired, or needing to go to the toilet more often. These are normal reactions and should pass within 24-48 hours.
