Reflexology has been around for thousands of years dating back to ancient Egypt. This ancient healing therapy has also been practised in other cultures, for instance the Chinese and the Native Americans however it is only within the last twenty years, as we seek a more holistic approach to our health and well being, that we have seen renewed interest in this remarkable therapy.
Reflexology works holistically (on our
mind body and spirit) and is a wellbeing treatment for the whole body, based on the principle that congestion or tension in any part of the foot relates to congestion or tension in the corresponding part of the body.
Skilled pressure is applied to the reflex points and different areas of the feet which can help relieve symptoms of illness, stress and injury, unblock energy paths and assist the body to heal itself
The treament begins with a consultation followed by a relaxing foot bath.
Once you are settled comfortably on the massage couch we will begin this wonderfully relaxing therapeutic foot massage using warm massage oils, and an essential oil where appropriate.
I am happy to tell you about the different reflex points as we work through them or you may instead choose to relax and we can discuss my findings at the end of the session.
Although we are unable to diagnose medical conditions, it is amazing how much we can discover about the body's functions and dysfunctions from working on reflex points on the foot.
