Reflexology has been around in some form for thousands of years and its origins are in ancient Chinese therapies and based on similar ideas to Acupuncture. Both therapies work on the principle that there are energy lines linking the feet and hands to the various body parts and the whole body can be treated by working on the reflex areas in the feet and hands.
Reflexology works on the principle that every organ and system of the body has a corresponding point or zone of the feet. By applying pressure to these reflex points in the toes, feet and ankle creates a stimulating effect throughout the body helping to restore energy flow, improve circulation and activates the elimination system to release toxins. The client may sometimes experience some discomfort and/or the therapist may feel some blockages when certain reflex points are worked on. Each session is an hour long and in most cases a course of treatment is necessary to resolve any problems but some clients may book a weekly or monthly session as maintenance and to help with stress relief and relaxation.
What are the conditions that can benefit from Reflexology?
Reflexology is good for a wide range of disorders including skin/respiratory conditions, digestive problems, migraines, PMS and menopausal problems, chronic fatigue, stress, depression and anxiety.
For 4-5 months I could not walk without a terrible pain in my left leg, I have had reflexology & massage treatment, I can now walk without the terrible pain.
