Reduce stress and improve your mood with reflexology, a luxurious treatment for your feet or hands which promotes health and balance throughout your entire body.
Reflexology is a specialised massage technique that applies different amounts of pressure to feet and hands, inducing relaxation and rebalancing the body systems. The theory is that areas of the feet and hands correspond to organs and systems of the body. The most common form of reflexology is foot reflexology. The stimulation of reflex areas in the feet triggers a response in corresponding organs, promoting balance in that area of the body.
Reflexology can be effective in reducing tension and stress throughout the body by initiating the relaxation response. It also helps improve nerve and blood supply throughout the body by facilitating the functioning of the nervous and circulatory system. Reflexology also assists the body to normalise by promoting balance between body, mind and emotions.
Before commencing your reflexology treatment your trained therapist will get a full understanding of your medical history and your requirements. During your session, you can sit, recline or lie on a massage table. Clients remain fully clothed during treatments except for the feet and lower legs. After sanitising the feet the reflexologist will then activate the reflex points on the feet that correspond with one side of the body, and continue to the other side until the whole body has been treated. If a reflexologist finds pain, tightness or energetic blockage in any of the reflex points, s/he will apply pressure to that area to promote healing elsewhere in the body. The reflexologist will often end the session in a way that calms and relaxes the client.
