What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying specialised massage techniques to specific reflex points - using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles – the aim of a reflexology treatment is to help restore balance to the body naturally, encourage the body to self heal, and improve the client’s general well-being.
Benefits of reflexology
Reflexology can help to relieve anxiety and tension, encourage relaxation, improve mood and aid sleep, though some people use it to help them cope with more specific health challenges. Once the health condition is improved with regular sessions, it is advisable to attend every 6-8 weeks to maintain that balance.
Reflexology is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and other healthcare settings, to help support patients with a variety of conditions.
You will be fully clothed during the treatment apart from your feet and lower legs.
Reflexology should not be used in place of, but complementary to conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention and advice. Reflexology does not diagnose diseases nor attempt to claim to treat or cure specific medical conditions.
