Reflexology for Your Relaxation

What is reflexology?

It’s a specialist massage on the feet using specific thumb and finger hand techniques.

The feet are considered to be the micro-system of the body and by applying pressure to specific parts of the feet you can have a different effect on the corresponding part of the body.”

So, how does Reflexology help me?

There are a number of theories as to how reflexology works but we still don’t know the exact mechanism.

One theory is the nerve impulse theory, the idea that pressing a point on the foot sends a message to the brain and then on to the corresponding part of the body via the nervous system.

Another is that the treatment works by unblocking energy meridians, the same way acupuncture does.

Also, there’s the notion that the relaxing effect of reflexology eases a lot of pain, discomfort and illness caused by stress.

Of course, you can’t forget the placebo effect, which has an important part to play, as it does in all therapies.

What is reflexology good for?

Stress is one of the main reasons why clients come and see me. So many conditions have a root cause in stress. Left unchecked, stress can gradually weaken the body, affect sleep and energy levels and can eventually lead to illness.

I see a lot of people with unresolved chronic pain and people with hormonal issues related to the menstrual cycle and the menopause.

Some clients also find reflexology great for working through the different stages of pregnancy.
