What is reflexology?
What can it do for you?
Clients experience a variety of benefits, including:
reduction in stress, tension, anxiety
improved sleep patterns
relief from neck, back and joint stiffness
feelings of calm
improved general health
Reflexology works holistically, and aims to support all the systems of the body. It will improve circulation bringing more oxygen to cells, aid detoxification through healthy elimination, and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system – the rest and digest system – inducing deep relaxation and healing.
What to expect
Reflexology sessions will usually take around an hour,the first session will be longer as we will discuss your health picture to identify any current areas for concern and your treatment needs. This will include medical history,digestive health,menstrual cycle,sleep pattern,emotional health etc.
The treatment will take place in a reclining chair or couch and your feet will be wrapped in warm towels. Gentle thumb and finger pressure will be used to stimulate or calm specific points in the feet that correspond to all the various parts of the body. Reflexology is a very relaxing treatment to receive.
Clients experience a range of feelings after their treament. Some report immediate relief or calm,a better nights sleep and some people will experience strong reactions like emotional release,or symptoms increasing for a day or two. There is no right way to feel,and your body will simply release what it needs to. Generally speaking you should feel an improvement with each session.
