What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of natural, holistic therapy based on the discovery that there are points on the feet, face and hands which correspond to organs, systems and structures within the entire body. This corresponding relationship is called a “reflex”. A reflex is when a stimulation at one point brings about a response in another point or area. In Reflexology, by using special pressure techniques to stimulate the points on the feet, face and hands, imbalances in the tissues, organs and systems of the body can be both detected and effectively treated to restore balance and well-being.
There are many benefits of receiving a Reflexology treatment including the following: -
Reflexology has been shown to be effective for pain (e.g. back pain), headaches/migraines, infertility (see Reflexology for Conception page), arthritis, sleep disorders, injuries, digestive problems (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome) and stress-related conditions.
What to expect
You will be reclining on a comfortable therapy couch fully supported with pillows and covered with a comforting blanket. Only your feet and lower legs need to be exposed. Your feet are cleansed prior to the treatment commencing.
A Reflexology treatment lasts for approximately 45 to 60 minutes and costs £40. I offer a six week package for the price of £200 (so in effect you are only paying for five treatments).
For that added touch of tranquility, and to enhance the relaxing and stress relieving benefits of your treatment, why not add a 15 minute head Reiki treatment for an extra £10?
