Reflexology

Since qualifying in 1997, I have been using Reflexology to successfully help people with a wide range of conditions, such as:
 
  • Arthritis

  • Headaches/Migraine
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Sub fertility
  • Pregnancy
  • P.M.S/Menopause
  • Parkinsons Disease

......and much more!

Try it for yourself and find out why Reflexology has been used since the time of the Ancient Egyptians!
 


What is Reflexology?

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.


How can Reflexology Help me?

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.


Reflexology can: 

  • 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
Once in balance, a regular treatment will help to maintain health and well-being. Many people now use Reflexology as a way of relaxing, restoring their energy levels and maintaining their health.


Who can Benefit from Reflexology?

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.


What happens when you have a treatment?

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


Some conditions that benefit from Reflexology

You do not need to be suffering from an illness to experience Reflexology. An occasional treatment is an excellent way of maintaining good health.

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
  • Migraine
  • Arthritis
  • Digestive disorders
  • Sinusitis
  • Back Pain
  • Menopause
  • PMS
  • Sub fertility
  • Pregnancy
  • 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 75 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.


Additional Techniques

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.


Advanced Reflexology Techniques (A.R.T. reg'd)

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.


Vertical Reflex Therapy (V.R.T.)

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.


Precision Reflexology

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.
