Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural healing art designed to relax, detox and balance by enhancing the natural flow of your body's energies. Traced back as far as 2300BC in the physician's tomb of the Egyptian pyramids, Reflexology is indeed an ancient healing art that was also used in China, India, Japan and by Native American tribes.

How does Reflexology work?

Many people use Reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress. Each foot contains 7,200 nerve endings and by applying gentle pressure techniques to stimulate these reflexes, the body is encouraged to heal itself naturally. Following illness stress or injury, the body is in a state of imbalance and vital energy pathways are blocked preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can help by restoring the energy flow, eliminating toxins, improving blood circulation, relieving tension and inducing a state of deep relaxation. While it does not cure conditions, this therapy brings relief to a wide range of acute and chronic illnesses and is suitable for people of all ages and sex.

What are the benfits of Reflexology?

Whilst no accredited and properly qualified reflexologist will ever claim to cure, many doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy.

Reflexology today is used as a complement to many forms of standard medical treatment. It is especially beneficial for:

  • Long term chronic illnesses
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Poor cardiovascular or lymphatic circulation
  • Musculo/skeletal pain
  • Hypertension
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Asthma and other respiratory problems
  • Constipation and IBS
  • Sinus problems
  • Menstrual irregularities, PMS, menopausal symptoms
  • Pregnancy/infertility problems
  • Post-operative recovery
  • Symptoms for which there is no underlying pathology
  • Care of the terminally ill

A 'one-off' session will be beneficial, particularly when stressed, but where there is a specific condition a course of treatment is recommended. The duration and frequency of treatment depends very much on each individual, how readily they respond and how long standing the condition is.

After one of two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people note a sense of well being and relaxation. Sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is transitory and is part of the healing process and should last no longer than 48 hours.
