Reflexology is a holistic therapy based upon the principle that the entire body is represented by reflex points on the feet. By applying pressure to these points you can stimulate a response in the corresponding part of the body encouraging it to function more efficiently.
A reflexology treatment can provide deep relaxation which helps the body to heal itself and enables it to restore and maintain its natural balance.
What are the benefits?
Reflexology uses the feet to treat the whole body. There are many benefits to reflexology which include stress reduction, improved circulation, pain relief and strengthening the immune system,
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and can help with a wide range of conditions. These include:
Headaches and Migraines
Menopausal/ Hormonal Issues
Digestive Issues such as IBS and Bloating
Pain (such as back, neck and shoulder pain)
Stress and Anxiety
Pregnancy and Fertility Issues
What to Expect During a Treatment
On your first visit a short consultation will be carried out. This will help to tailor the treatment to exactly what you need. You will then remove your socks and shoes and get comfortable on my relaxing recliner chair. A beautiful reflexology foot balm will be applied to your feet and I will start the treatment with some relaxing massage techniques. Then gentle pressure will be applied to specific points on your feet. Most clients find themselves drifting off to sleep although some clients do like to talk throughout the treatment which is also fine.
After the treatment you will be offered a glass of water and then talked through some after care advice.
