What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that treats the whole of the body through the stimulation of certain reflex points located on the feet and occasionally on the hands.

It is thought that reflexology may have developed from the various types of therapies first practised by the Chinese several thousands of years ago, which include methods such as acupuncture, acupressure and various other pressure therapies. Reflexology is similar to acupuncture in that the treatment is based on working on certain points along energy lines to balance the energy flow in the body, but the meridian or energy lines of acupuncture and acupressure differ somewhat to the energy or zone lines worked on in reflexology.

A gentle pressure applied to these reflex points can stimulate a response in the corresponding part of the body encouraging it to function more efficiently.
A reflexology treatment can provide deep relaxation which helps the body to heal itself and enables it to restore and maintain its natural balance.

Reflexology is a holistic therapy, which means the whole person is being treated not just the symptoms of disease. If one area of the body is out of balance, then others will also be. Reflexology helps by stimulating the body's own healing process allowing the individual to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Reflexology is a gentle and non-invasive treatment which can be preventative as well as bringing relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. It can also be combined with reiki healing.


What is Reflexology Used For?

Reflexology has been used for the improvement of general health, though it has been found to be highly effective at relieving stress, fatigue, sleep disorders, digestive disorders, ear complaints, constipation, menstrual problems, high blood pressure, headaches and migraines, sinus problems, arthritis, allergies, back and neck pains and some skin conditions.

Reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe.

Usually a treatment lasts about one hour. A course of treatments vary in length depending on your body’s needs and this will be discussed at your initial session. At the end of a session the feet should feel warm and you should feel relaxed.

After the first treatment or two, your body may respond in a very definite way and you should record any reactions and feelings you may have. This information could be vital for the Reflexologist as it shows how your body is responding to treatment.
