Reflexology

 

Reflexogy is a non invasive complementary therapy that benefits your entire self and is suitable for all ages and stages in life including maternity and for fertility.  Both the feet and hands have thousands of nerve endings and having reflexology helps to restore balance and relaxes your mind and emotions. 

 
What is reflexology?
  • utilises specialised techniques on the feet (or hands) using thumb and finger pressure

  • based on the concept that all the important elements of the body have reflexes that are located on the feet (or hands/ears)

  • the ‘reflexes’ are believed to correspond with the main systems of the body, and form a microcosm of the human body with the toes representing the head region all the way down to the bottom of the foot representing the pelvic area.  

  • working the reflexes is believed to help to correct imbalances and restore the body’s energy flow

  • believed to stimulate the nerve impulses to corresponding areas

  • allows our feet to communicate the stresses and strains of our lives and for us to acknowledge these and make changes.

 

Studies have shown that the benefits of reflexology include that it:
  • brings about deep relaxation

  • helps us to de-stress

  • relieves tension

  • improves wellbeing

  • enhances positive moods

  • increases restful sleep

  • releases endorphins and increases levels of serotonin

  • harmonises the body to a state of peace and balance

  • is useful as a complement to mainstream healthcare

  • improves mobility 

  • supports people living with sleep and digestive issues

 

What to expect:

Book your initial consultation here.  

If treatment is suitable to go ahead then:  

During your reflexology appointment:

  • You will be invited to lie down on a comfy couch and will have pillows, bolsters and a cosy blanket to keep you warm.

  • I will wipe your feet down with a cleanser first.

  • I blend reflexology with massage therapy warm up techniques to begin your journey into relaxation.

  • I will observe and inform you of any obvious imbalanced reflexes found. 

  • I will work on your foot reflexes to restore and rebalance them.

  • You will also be given aftercare advice which may include some hand reflexology techniques you can use at home.

What should I wear?

Please wear loose, comfy clothing for maximum relaxation. I need to easily access your bare feet, ankles and the lower part of your leg.  You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks; the rest of your clothes stay on.

 

I ask that on the day of your session to please wash your feet with your regular cleanser and water so they are fresh to work on.

Please bring your own mask or face covering so that you feel comfy.

How frequently do you need reflexology?

If you are working towards a specific issue then it is of benefit to have 2-4 sessions over successive weeks and then once a month after that for maintenance.  

 

What product do you use?

I use a beeswax-based reflexology balm or massage cream. I also have a vegan wax option.

Hand Reflexology
 

I also offer hand reflexology as an online selfcare therapy.  You will be guided and taught how to give yourself a basic hand reflexology treatment which you can then use at home or even sat at your desk at work. These sessions are shorter in length than foot reflexology and consist of a consultation, a gentle massage to warm and relax your hands and a customised treatment.  You will be guided through how to use simple hand reflexology reflexes and points to optimise your own wellbeing.
