Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a non intrusive complimentary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body.  I work holistically with my clients and I am to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for my clients.  Reflexology is beneficial for cognitive health, stimulates blood circulation, helps to improve the body's metabolism, flushes toxins and overall relaxation as well as issues such as headaches, asthma, anxiety, back, neck and knee problems, insomnia,   plantar fasciitis, depression, hormone in-balance, fibromyalgia, MS, Cancer and end of life care. 


Reflexology has been connected with stimulating more than 7,000 different nervous endings in a single session, thereby increasing their function and reactivity.  Reflexology can increase metabolism and energy creation processes within the body. 


If you have not heard of Reflexology, here is a short video on YouTube which will provide you with a brief introduction.  Thank you to the AOR - The Association of Reflexologist which are the foremost aspirational and independent Professional Association for Reflexology in the UK since 1984. 


If you have never experienced Reflexology before, you may be a little nervous prior to attending your first appointment.  You shall remain fully clothed for Reflexology, the only items of clothing to be removed is socks/tights and shoes. It is advisable to wear loose comfortable clothing so that you feel relaxed.  You will be seated in a large chair called a La Fuma.  


For your first appointment I will ask you to arrive at least 15 minutes earlier as I need to have a full consultation with you. I will need to understand your lifestyle, allergies, medications and recent surgeries or illness.


Treatment time will last 60 minutes and it is generally recommended that you have 4-6 weekly treatments initially, although Reflexology is safe to have more frequently if required.
