Reflexology is a non-invasive, gentle and safe complementary therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, and hands, correspond with different areas of the body. A form of reflexology is also thought to have been used throughout history in many other cultures including Indian, Japanese and American Indian. In Europe in the Middle Ages, 'zone therapy' was practiced which would later form the basis of modern-day reflexology.
Reflexology works in a similar way to acupressure and acupuncture. It is thought that there are certain points on the feet and hands that correspond to the organs and glands in the body. So by pressing and massaging these points it can stimulate energy pathways in the body. If any energy pathways are blocked, Reflexology aims to unblock them, allowing the energy to flow freely again which aims to restore balance to the body. Most people say having Reflexology feels relaxing and soothing. Hand Reflexology can be a very good alternative if there are reasons where the feet could not be accessed.
Treatments are generally an hour session, including a consultation, which usually takes slightly longer on the first appointment and includes discussing your medical history and planning an individual treatment plan. I recommend a treatment plan which will include a number of regular treatments subject to your own individual needs. Regular treatments are recommended for the best outcome and maintenance.
I have a keen interest in Women's Health and Reflexology is a safe and supportive alternative treatment for menopause symptoms,
and specialize in Reflexology for Womens health, as I found in my own experience, that Reflexology made a huge difference to my own health and wellbeing and those around me. After suffering anxiety and a whole host of symptoms whilst transitioning through menopause, I found that Reflexology was a great way to relieve my symptoms, and made me feel so much better. I see many ladies who suffer with a wide range of symptoms from, Anxiety, Low mood, Poor sleep, Insomnia, Mood swings, Headaches/Migraine, Painful joints, skin problems, the list goes on. Many report their symptoms are greatly relieved after receiving regular Reflexology treatments.
