Reflexology
Balance your body through your feet

Reflexology

Reflexology is a powerful form of preventative medicine with its aim being to create homeostasis in your body, meaning that your organs are working all together and at their best

Your feet provide a map for your body’s organs, the stomach and pancreas, for example, are found in the arch, any problems in your body are reflected in your feet, and can be diagnosed and treated via the same specialised foot massage

A complete reflexology therapy session uses many different techniques and includes all of the points on both your feet and perhaps your hands and ears. The session generally starts at your fingers or toes, and works down to the heel of your hand or foot, then works the areas on the sides and top. By working all of the points, our reflexologist addresses internal organs and glands as well as muscle groups, bones, nerve ganglions (solar plexus, brachial plexus) and nerves (sciatic) during a session

If our reflexologist finds congestion or tightness during the session, they will apply pressure to work on bringing your body back into balance. If the practitioner finds an area of pain, the area is worked until harmony is brought to the area or point. To “release pain” is not the model, the goal is rather to bring the whole body into balance, and then the pain will subside to do this our reflexologist stimulates the nervous system to do the work, it is not our therapist who “fixes” it

All our reflexology sessions begin with our practitioner conducting a brief health history, to check with you in case reflexology might not be the best choice of therapy for you. Our practitioner will explain how reflexology works and what happens during a session and will also inform you that reflexology does not treat specific illness and is not a substitute for medical treatment. You may be asked to sign a consent form

The practitioner may choose to work only on the feet, or the hands, or the ears, depending on your specific health issues. Some problems respond better to work on the feet, others to work on the hands; yet others respond better to the reinforcement of work on all three – hands, ear and feet

If the reflexologist chooses to work on your feet, you will lie or sit down, remaining fully clothed except for your shoes and socks. Our practitioner may wash your feet and soak them in warm water, then position them at their chest level. Any open wounds, rashes, sores, plantar warts or bunions will be assessed and you will be asked about any foot or leg pain that could hinder treatment

Our reflexology treatment sessions last between 30-60 minutes. Please remember that Reflexologists do not diagnose or tell you about any congestion or tension they observe on your feet, hands or ears during a session that may suggest any abnormalities

The number of session you will require varies and is determined by your health and reasons for seeking reflexology but in general results are subtle but cumulative therefore you are more likely to see greater benefits from regular sessions, we recommend once a week for 6-8 weeks, followed by a tune-up every 4 weeks

We also welcome GP and Hospital referrals.  If your GP practice is not listed on our GP Referral Scheme, please ask us for our form to give to your practice to complete
