Reflexologists believe that different areas on your feet and hands correspond to other parts of your body, and massaging them stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to heal itself.
For 3,000 years Chinese practitioners have used reflexology to re-balance Qi (the life force flowing through energy channels) to treat a number of conditions. It can work alongside conventional Western medical medicine to promote healing and improve wellbeing and vitality.
On your initial consultation, we will ask you about your medical history, health issues, lifestyle and diet. We will then apply painless pressure to your feet using thumb and forefinger to identify which areas of your body aren’t functioning properly.
Sessions usually last 30 to 60 minutes and focus on the soles of your feet, unless you are very ticklish, in which case we can massage your hands.
We normally recommend five or six sessions to treat specific health conditions.
We want to provide you with a nurturing and relaxing experience. You do not have to undress to have the treatment.
How does it work?
Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the soles of your feet or hands – known as reflex zones – containing millions of nerve endings, correspond to other parts of the body.
What can it help with?
Our aim is to bring you back into balance. If you have been injured or are lacking energy, reflexology can help to restore balance and support your body into healing itself.
It can boost a sluggish circulation and is useful for treating stress, anxiety, back pain, migraine, poor digestion, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) , respiratory problems, asthma, headache , bladder problems, menopausal symptoms and period pain.
My clients comment that being able to zone out for an hour enjoying a relaxing massage has a positive psychological impact on their wellbeing.
