Reflexology – The Holistic way to Good health and Well-being

Reflexology is such a relaxing holistic foot massage. People of all ages can benefit from its treatment. Practiced thousands of years ago in Ancient Egypt, India, China and Indonesia, reflexology is an ancient art of applying pressure and massage to reflex points on the foot.

Treatment plan

Reflexology treatment is aimed to give complete relaxation and overall benefits through foot reflex manipulation and general foot and lower leg massage. Reflexology treatment is carried out in our therapy room on a comfortable couch. On your first visit an initial consultation will take place, to discuss your medical history and background. Total confidentiality is assured at all times.

Effects and benefit

Everyone can benefit from a reflexology treatment. Reflexology is especially beneficial when dealing with stress related problems. An increasing number of people are using this safe natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonizing the whole body in a stressful world we live in today.

Reflexology treatment can bring relief to a wide range of conditions including:

– Back and neck problems
– Digestive disorders
– Migraines
– Insomnia
– High blood pressure
– Sinusitis
– Increases energy levels
– Improves circulation
– Feeling of deep relaxation
– And many more

Reflexology treatment is carried out with the client lying on the couch, and will start with a therapeutic foot massage, leading onto a technique of applying pressure to the reflex points on the foot. Helping to become more relaxed and improve circulation to all parts of the body and revitalize energy. Usually a Reflexology treatment lasts about an hour.

Possible reactions

Some people may find that Reflexology makes them feel really relaxed and sleepy after a treatment. They may feel tired and need to rest a while.┬áYou may experience a term called ‘the healing crisis’ reaction involving the body getting rid of toxins. This could increase your urination or bowel movements. You could also feel coldness or nausea; but this will pass in a few hours or a couple of days. To gain maximum benefit from your Reflexology treatment, try to rest afterward and drink plenty of water to flush away any toxins.
