What Is Reflexology?
Reflexologists use fingers and thumbs to work on reflex areas on the feet or hands which relate to different areas of the body, including organs and glands.
How Can Reflexology Benefit Me?
Reflexology can reduce stress and tension, improve circulation and aid the unblocking of nerve impulses, helping the body to address inbalances in the system.
People of all ages and walks of life can benefit from reflexology. As well as feeling relaxed, balanced and refreshed, many people state that they experienced other benefits including improved sleep, lower anxiety and a reduction in pain.
What Does The Research Say?
There is a growing body of research regarding the potential benefits of reflexology from organisations across the world. Should you wish to review some of this research, it can be found
through sites such as the University of Minnesota Taking Charge Of Your Health and Wellbeing,
the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence
or the Reflexology Research Project.
What Should I Expect?
You can either attend a pre-booked appointment at my comfortable treatment room or you can request an appointment in your home if you live in the 3084 postcode area.
The first session includes an initial assessment which will cover areas such as health, lifestyle, medical conditions and current medication/treatment. This assessment means that your first appointment will be up to 90 minutes long; subsequent appointments will be 60 minutes.
During the appointment you will be seated in a recliner chair and be required to take off your shoes and socks so that your feet can be worked on. The video below, from the Association of Reflexology UK explains more:
