I don’t claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. Some people find it works for them – some don’t. The best way to find out is to try it! Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving.
You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an
individual basis. A full medical history will be requested on your first treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent form for treatment. This information will be kept confidential. Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive; depending on the type of reflexology, the most clothing that will have to be removed for a treatment to take place will be your socks and shoes.
The sessions are about 45mins long, yet the first session can be 60-75 mins long. I
may recommend a course of treatments to help you get your body back into balance and then a maintenance of every few weeks. But if you just wanted to dip in for a
relaxation session then that is fine too.
The cost of each session is £40
What Is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary therapy that can be effective in achieving deep relaxation and wellbeing; by reducing stress in people’s lives can be key in optimising good health and building resilience. It is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body and reflexologists work these points and areas.
The theory of reflexology is that all the systems and organs of the whole body are
mirrored or reflected in smaller peripheral areas, for example the feet, hands, ears
and face. These can be seen in relation to the feet by following the link to our
interactive reflexology map (right).
The reflexologist simply works those reflected areas with their fingers, aiming to
bring those areas back to balance and therefore aiding the body to work as well as it
can. Iimagine throwing all the balls in the air, then the body knowing where to put
them all back.
Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn
babies to those receiving end of life care. However, there may occasionally be times
when it is not suitable to provide a treatment. The best advice we can give you is to
give me a ring and ask! Please note: reflexology should not be used as an
alternative to seeking medical advice.
