Reflexology is a natural therapy founded on the belief that your feet and hands are a reflection of the systems in your body – where specific areas correspond to organs, glands and structure. By applying gentle pressure to areas of the feet or hands a Reflexologist can help the body restore its own healthy balance.
Reflexology aims to treat the individual as a whole, creating a state of harmony in both body and mind. It has the benefit of also being a deeply relaxing therapy, and during periods of relaxation the body takes the opportunity to heal, restore and energise itself.
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from new born babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between. It is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing.
Here are a few of the more common conditions that can be supported through Reflexology:
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Headaches and migraines
Stress & tension
Hay fever & other allergies
PMT, PMS & menstrual problems
High blood pressure
Insomnia & sleep disorders
It is usually safe to have Reflexology alongside conventional medicine, but if you are currently having any medical treatment please speak to your GP before booking an appointment.
