Reflexology is an ancient technique where the feet mirrors the body which are mapped out into areas called reflex points. As a reflexologist I use my thumbs and fingers to work the reflex points on either the feet or hands. I work the reflexes to bring a response to the corresponding part of the body.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy which works to treat both the mind and body if you have a physical illness this can affect the mind through stress or if you have an emotion issue then this can affect the body in many ways.
Reflexology helps to rebalance and restore the body as a whole.
How does it work
It is based on the Chinese belief that energy flows through the body when we are balanced and in harmony with our lives emotionally and physically. Should this energy become blocked symptoms or illness may occur. By unblocking the energy this enables healing to take place.
This area on the foot may feel tender or gritty as crystal deposits may have formed. Working on these areas can help break them down helping to restore energy flow and release waste or toxins.
How can it help me
Reflexology is suitable for all ages babies and children respond well as they do not have any preconceived ideas. You do not have to be feeling unwell to benefit some of my clients find that regular monthly treatments helps keep their stress levels down helping them to cope with their busy lives.
It may be effective in helping with many conditions including some of the following:-
- Fertility issues
- Stress related conditions
- Digestion problems (IBS)
- Back Pain (to help relieve pain)
Clients often report feeling lighter, very relaxed and calmer than when they arrived for their treatment.
