1. What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary health therapy involving the application of pressure to specific points on the feet. Reflexologists use specific thumb, finger, and hand massage techniques to manipulate reflex areas in the feet that correspond to all organs, glands, and parts of your body.By stimulating these reflexes, the blood and nerve supply is increased to where the body needs it most.Reflexology is not the same as a foot massage. Nor is it a substitute for conventional medical treatment.
2. What health conditions can reflexology help with?
Reflexology is particularly beneficial for the relief of stress, tension and anxiety. It also rebalances hormones, boosts your immune system, improves your sleep, flushes the body of toxins, and generally boosts energy levels. But it can also do so much more.
My clients have told me they have experienced improvements in these following conditions/aliments:
Arthritis and joint pain
Fertility and pregnancy
Headaches and migraines
Muscle aches and pains
Stress and anxiety
Sleep disorders and insomnia
3. How does reflexology work?
Reflexology will bring your body back into balance. There are thousands of nerve endings in your feet which correspond to and send messages about specific parts of the body to and from your brain. Through reflexology, any blockages in nerve and/or blood supply can be released, and your circulation is boosted which enables your body to heal itself.
4. How often should I have Reflexology?
The number of treatments you will need depends on your ailment or condition, how long you have had it and what you are hoping to achieve.
If you are focused on a specific health issue, I would recommend that you have sessions two weeks apart or even weekly for a month or two, then monthly as a maintenance programme. If you are having treatments to promote general relaxation and health, then I would suggest one session a month. However, the frequency of treatments are entirely up to you and your own personal preference. It might be once per week, once per month or even once per year.
1. Will it hurt?
It shouldn’t hurt but you may feel some discomfort if I find an area that is out of balance or congested. The discomfort will only last a short time as I work through the congestion and if necessary I can move on and return to rework the area later in the treatment.
2. I’m pregnant – can I have reflexology?
Congratulations! Yes, you can have reflexology but we will need to go through a few detailed questions beforehand to ascertain your general health as well as where you are with your pregnancy and how things have been so far. There are one or two situations that may mean reflexology is not appropriate but in general ‘Mums to be’ find the treatment calming and relaxing.
1.Can you diagnose what’s wrong with me?
No. As a reflexologist I am not able to diagnose or cure medical conditions. Your feet may indicate areas that are congested or out of balance within your body and we will be able to discuss what we find but if you have questions regarding a medical condition you should see your G.P.
3. What information will you need from me?
I will ask you about your medical history, lifestyle, current health and some more general information about yourself so that I can build up a holistic view of you in order to adapt the treatment to best meet your needs. Any information given will be kept strictly confidential. In some circumstances you may be asked to sign an informed consent form.
