REFLEXOLOGY.

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.

Reflexology is a powerful but gently applied complementary therapy aimed at restoring health, energy and balance to your whole body and mind, returning it to an efficient state of ‘homeostasis’ (balance). It is deeply relaxing and re-energising and follows the premise that the body, mind and soul are inextricably linked and work as one system.  Reflexology theory describes points on the feet, lower legs, hands, face and ears which correspond with different areas of the body. By applying gentle pressure, massaging and manipulating these reflex points we promote healing in the connected area by releasing any blockages and restoring the free and healthy flow of energy, blood, nervous and lymph circulation to the whole body.

Frequently Asked Questions

During your initial treatment a brief medical history will be taken and your reflexologist will discuss with you any concerns or symptoms you may have and your expectations of treatment. You will then be asked to remove socks & footwear and lie back on a comfortable massage couch. Treatment is gentle and you will have the opportunity to relax and sleep. During treatment you may experience tingling around the body. This is normal.
No, Reflexology is a pain-free way of promoting relaxation and encouraging optimum health. However, there can be some sensitivity which may indicate an area of imbalance.
Please wear your most comfortable and loose clothing so that you feel relaxed. You will not be asked to remove your clothing. Only your feet and hands are needed for this treatment.
Reflexology is a treatment that is usually totally safe for most people although adjustments will be made for babies, children, the elderly and palliative patients. With these treatments a lighter pressure will be used and the appointment length is usually shorter.
After treatment you will feel relaxed and possibly a little sleepy. Very occasionally you may have a light headache, depending on the body’s healing response but being adequately hydrated should alleviate this.
