What is Reflexology?
How can reflexology help?
Reflexology is one way that we can reduce stress. People will often find relief from anxiety, tension and insomnia. Treaments can also help with musculoskeletal pain, hormonal imbalance and digestive issues.
The nrevous system as a whole responds to stimulus and by applying pressure to specific reflex points on the feet, a calming message to peripheral nerves is carried through the central nervous system allowing the body to relax. This relaxation increases blood flow to the body and it’s organs and systems which allows movement toward homeostasis and optimal functioning.
Your time in the treatment room will induce deep relaxation and guarantee that time for yourself.
What to expect
Reflexology sessions usually take around an hour, the first session being slightly longer so we can discuss your current health picture and identify your treatment needs. It is important to discuss all areas of your life, so that we can work holistically.
The treatment will take place in a reclining chair or couch, You will remain fully clothed, with socks and shoes removed and legs exposed if possible. Your feet will be wrapped in warm towels, gentle thumb and finger pressure will be applied to stimulate or calm specific points on the feet that correspond to all the various parts of the body. Reflexology is a very calming treatment to receive, many people report complete mind-body relaxation.
Clients experience a range of sensations/feelings during/after their treament. Some of the things that clients feed back include, complete relaxtion, warmth and tingling arising from the feet upwards, sensations at various areas in the body, sometimes a slight tenderness can present in the reflexes of the feet where there may be imbalance, this usually dissapates quickly. Some people report seeing colours!
Immediate relief or calm can be experienced post treatment. It’s very common to experience emotional release, a healthy bowel movement and a good nights slepp. There is no right way to feel and your body will simply release what it needs to. Generally speaking you should feel an improvement with each session.
