Health and Wellbeing
Reflexology is based on the principle that areas throughout the body are mirrored on the soles, tops and side of the feet. By using gentle, but firm, pressure on the feet the body can be fine tuned to help return to a harmonious state of balance.
Reflexology can be traced back to Ancient Egypt. Modern day reflexology was developed by Eunice Ingham in the 1930s.
Reflexology is suitable for everyone. However, there are certain conditions where you should avoid reflexology. To ensure client well being, initial treatments begin with a consultation. In some instances your doctor’s permission may be required before treatment can commence. All consultations and treatments are strictly confidential.
During a treatment you will remove your shoes and socks and lie on a reclining chair, or couch. A variety of reflexology techniques will be used to suit your individual needs. Hopefully, you will experience a deep sense of relaxation.
After a treatment you will need to try and let your body rest to gain maximum benefits so don’t plan strenuous activity for the rest of the day. Ensure you drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins.
Reflexology can assist in helping:
To reduce stress
Increase energy levels
Strengthen immune system
Balance and give a whole body sense of well being
When used in conjunction with feet reading it gives valuable insight into how emotions and life experiences impact on health and wellbeing.
Reflexology rebalances the body, while feet reading helps to understand the emotion that caused the body imbalance in the first place.
