Reflexology is a complementary therapy that is based on the theory that different points and areas on the feet, leg and hands, correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexology is an ancient therapy which has been practiced for over 5000 years and I believe that working these points or areas can help aid relaxation, improve mood, release tension, enhance sleep and can generally help improve well-being; allowing you to cope better with the stresses that life can bring.
Every person is unique and some people find other things improve as well - the only way to know if reflexology will help you is to try it!
Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
A full medical history will be requested on your first treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent form for treatment. This information will be kept confidential. Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive; the most clothing that will have to be removed for a treatment to take place will be your socks and shoes.
Depending on the initial findings I may recommend a course of treatments.
Please note that I do not diagnose, prescribe or cure. Reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.
Your Reflexology Appointment
For first appointments a full consultation is conducted. This will enable us to discuss in full your expectations and to design a treatment plan specifically for you.
Once you have removed your footwear I invite you take a seat in my chair. You may now choose to have a few minutes soaking in a warm foot bath or have your feet cleansed using warm cloths. You can decide on a choice of music, candles and if you wish to have ready blended aromatherapy oils in the diffuser or incense stick.
After reclining the chair, I will make you comfortable using pillows and blankets. I will begin the main treatment by make a visual examination of your feet, making a note of any areas of hard or dry skin, discolouration, or any other irregularities that may tell me something about your health.
During the treatment I will work with thumbs and fingers over the whole surface of the foot. The treatment ends with a relaxing massage over the whole of the feet and ankles.
Generally, most clients report that a reflexology treatment is wonderfully relaxing and soothing, and many people fall asleep.
