Stressed? Weary? Craving 'me time'?
Reflexology can help! This ancient complementary therapy works to relax the body, helps alleviate the stress and strains of daily life and naturally promotes a sense of well-being.
What is reflexology?
The practice of reflexology is thought to have originated in Ancient Egypt at least 5000 years ago.
Reflexology is based on the principle that the feet, with their extensive nerve endings, are like mini-maps of the human body.
The feet are separated into 3 horizontal zones which correspond to the upper, middle and lower parts of the body. They are further split into 5 vertical zones per foot, and each zone relates to a different part of the body. During a reflexology treatment, all areas of the feet are stimulated using a variety of massage and gentle manipulation techniques. Imbalances will show up as grainy, uneven or sensitive areas on the feet.
People wonder how having a foot rub can be so incredibly relaxing! The body is a network connected by a number of different systems, one of which is the nervous system. When the reflex points in the feet are stimulated, there is a corresponding reaction in the associated areas of the body via the nervous system. This can result in deep relaxation which helps to relieve stress and tension and restore harmony and balance.
Reflexology is a hands-on, non-invasive treatment. It is a complementary therapy but is not a replacement for medical treatment and cannot be used for diagnosis.
What to expect from your treatment
Your reflexology session will start with a pleasant soak in the foot spa followed by the treatment. I will use vegan oils and creams to gently massage and relax your feet and then systematically work over all areas of your feet, focusing on specific areas as relevant to your health circumstances.
After having reflexology, you should feel deeply relaxed and many people note improved sleep and digestion. You may also feel tired and emotional, which is a natural healing reaction to the mental and physical unblocking that occurs during the treatment.
