Over the last decade reflexology has become recognised as a respected and effective form of treatment for people with a number of ailments, some of which are listed on this page. it is an ancient natural therapy that uses subtle energies of the feet to balance and harmonise the entire being and based on the principle that there are reflex areas on the feet that correspond to all the organs, systems and parts of the body. When these points are stimulated, tension is eased, nerve and blood supply is increased and the body's own healing potential is activated.
As a holistic therapy reflexology aims to treat the body as a whole and get to the root cause of the condition and treat this, not the symptom.
On your first visit I will take a detailed medical history and find out about your lifestyle and what has led you to use reflexology. I will then examine your feet before commencing with treatment; this will be performed in a comfortable reclining chair known as a lafuma. Apart from removing your footwear and socks prior to treatment, you will remain fully clothed.
The session will last between 45 minutes to an hour depending on whether this is your first appointment or not. The next step concerns the stimulation of various points on the feet to identify areas of tenderness and/or tension. I will then use brisk movements to warm up your feet and get them ready for treatment. Then the physical act of applying pressure starts from the toes to the heel according to your comfort.
This particular type of movements involved requires the application of an appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers on your feet. This should be within your comfort zone- not too heavy and not too light but at a level within your
The number of treatment sessions I will recommend will vary depending on the condition being treated, but will always be discussed prior to any treatment plan. You should feel relaxed at the end of a session. How long that relaxation lasts is a good indicator of the effectiveness of the session. Make note of this and tell me at your next session this will help me plan or modify your treatment.
