ReflexologySince qualifying in 1997, I have been using Reflexology to successfully help people with a wide range of conditions, such as:
- Back Pain
- Chronic Fatigue (M.E.)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Parkinsons Disease
Try it for yourself and find out why Reflexology has been used since the time of the Ancient Egyptians!
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that stimulates the natural healing ability of the body by the application of pressure to specific points (reflexes) found on the feet.
What is Reflexology?
Following injury, illness or stress, the body is in a state of imbalance and vital energy pathways can become congested and blocked. A trained reflexologist can detect these blockages. Skilled application of reflexology techniques can gently stimulate the natural healing ability of the body, allowing it to return to a state of healthy balance.
How can Reflexology Help me?
- Stimulate the release of toxins
- Ease tensions
- Boost energy levels
- Promote natural healing
- Improve circulation
- Calm and relax the body and mind
- Restore a natural state of balance tbody and mind
Reflexology treats the whole person, not the symptoms. For this reason most people benefit from treatment. It can bring relief to a wide range of conditions. It is a safe therapy, suitable for all ages, from babies to the elderly.
Who can Benefit from Reflexology?
At the first session you will be asked about your health and lifestyle. Your feet will then be worked using thumb and finger pressure. Areas of imbalance will be noted and worked accordingly. Discomfort may be felt in these areas but the treatment should generally be pleasant. Reflexology DOES NOT tickle
What happens when you have a treatment?
You do not need to be suffering from an illness to experience Reflexology. An occasional treatment is an excellent way of maintaining good health.
Some conditions that benefit from Reflexology
The following list gives an idea of some of the many conditions that Reflexology treatment has been shown to be effective for:
- Stress Related Disorders
- Digestive disorders
- Back Pain
- Sleep disorders
Chronic, long term disorders, such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinsons Disease
- M.E./ Chronic Fatigue
How many treatments will I need?The first session lasts for approximately 90 minutes. Subsequent treatments take 50 minutes to 1 hour. Everyone will respond in an individual way to reflexology. Normally clients will see gradual improvements in their health from the very first treatment. As a general guide a course of 6 treatments are recommended in order to gain the maximum benefit from Reflexology.
I have trained in a number of additional reflexology techniques, which I will incorporate into the treatment, as appropriate for your individual circumstances. These techniques are described below.
A.R.T. is an evolvement of the original techniques. Knuckle pressures and other techniques are used to allow deeper access to the reflexes. This form of treatment can be more painful, however, the use of A.R.T. increases the therapeutic benefits of the treatment.
Advanced Reflexology Techniques (A.R.T. reg'd)
The reflexes are treated for a few minutes with the client standing, either at the beginning or end of a session. V.R.T. is very good for any muscular or joint problems. It can also be useful with other conditions.
Vertical Reflex Therapy (V.R.T.)
This is a very light technique. It involves the "linking" of 2 or more specific reflexes in order to balance the flow of energy between them.
I am happy to answer, without obligation, any queries you have about how Reflexology, or any of the therapies, may benefit your circumstances.
