Reflexology, which has its root in ancient Egypt, works on the principle that every organ and system of the body has a corresponding point or area in the feet. Through these points known as ‘reflex points’, the feet ‘reflect’ imbalances within the body.
When gentle yet firm pressure is applied to each reflex point and where there are corresponding physical problems, tension and blockages can be broken down and free flow of energy to the whole body is promoted, encouraging the body to heal itself.
What is a treatment like? Before starting a treatment, you will be asked to remove your footwear and lie on a massage couch. The treatment involves compression massage to the soles and uppers of your feet, which stimulate and heal the associated organs. Reflexology treatment is very relaxing and soothing, and many people fall asleep.
How many treatments will I need? This depends on the nature of the condition and your individual needs. Normally the most benefit of Reflexology is received from 3-5 weekly treatment initially, followed by fortnightly or monthly. It is beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.
