Reflexology stems from an ancient form of therapy believed to have been practised in China some 5,000 years ago. It’s a gentle and effective healing technique applied to the feet & occasionally head and hands to induce a state of balance in both body & mind.
Our Chichester Reflexology practitioner, Sophie Gooley, has many years experience and is an expert in her field. She will speak to you about why you are seeking treatment and about how Reflexology can help you.
Reflexology is based on the theory that reflexes on the feet correspond to major systems and organs in the body. Reflexology is used to treat many different problems, commonly pain relief, headaches, sinusitis, menopausal symptoms, hormone imbalances & when you are pregnant. It also treats any stress related symptoms and is used as ‘time out’ to allow you to heal & recover. Our therapist, Sophie, will apply pressure using her fingers and thumbs to the soles of your feet which will in turn relax the nervous system, allowing the body to adjust balance itself naturally to alleviate any pain or symptoms you may be suffering from.
At The Boxgrove we aim to treat all of our clients holistically and we have a wealth of experience and advice at our fingertips. Sophie may refer you to another of our specialists if she feels you may benefit, for example, our Nutritionist if you are suffering from IBS or our Soft Tissue team if suffering with pain.
