Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands, and ears that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, and helps to restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body. Reflexology is known as Zone Therapy in countries other than the UK.

What happens during the treatment process?

A consultation will be carried about before the treatment, where you be asked about your medical health, any medications you are taking and also life style questions, such as diet and stress factors (these questions are asked so I can build up an idea of your lifestyle and therefore treat your body as a whole)

After the consultation and any questions or concerns discussed, you will be asked to lay on the massage table, sitting up, with your bare feet elevated by a rolled up towel. I start by refreshing your feet with witchazel, then I begin on your right foot. I massage your foot first and carry out some movements to ‘wake the foot up’ to receive treatment.
I will then work through the various reflexes using a combination of ‘thumb walking’ and finger movements. You may feel tingling in the feet or hands (due to circulation) and you may feel slight twinges or pain. This is nothing to worry about and can be talked about after treatment.

After working both feet (about 50mins) I will ask you to slowly move off the massage table. You may feel a combination of feelings afterwards and while discussing the treatment I will give you an after care leaflet. This leaflet contains advice such as things to do and not do afterwards, as well as a list of possible reactions. The reactions aren’t very common but I want you to feel at ease and not worry.

We will then discuss a treatment plan if necessary and book your next appointment.

It can take at least 3 treatments before any lasting benefit is felt. This is because your body needs to attune to the treatment.
