Reflexology

Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops and sides of the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a “map” of the body.

Reflexologists work on the reflexes with their thumbs and fingers using specialised massage techniques, said to help correct imbalances throughout the body and help release blocked energy.

ORIGINS OF REFLEXOLOGY – A brief History

The Chinese are said to have used an early form of reflexology more than 5,000 years ago in their use of pressure therapies. Egyptian tomb artwork dating from around 2000 BC shows foot massage too; an indication that the benefits of working on the feet to encourage general good health have been acknowledged for some time. These ancient forms of foot massage were based on the principle that energy zones run throughout the body.

This principle, which became zone therapy, was further developed in the early 19th century with the discovery that applying pressure in various places along 10 vertical zones the length of the body, could ease underlying problems. These ideas were expanded when practitioners, such as Eunice Ingham, found that working with the feet was most effective, as they were the most sensitive and responsive areas, with thousands of nerve endings. Reflexology was introduced to Britain in the early 1960′s and its popularity continues to grow.

CAN EVERYONE ENJOY REFLEXOLOGY?

Reflexology is suitable for most adults but there are certain conditions where you should avoid reflexology. To ensure the continued well-being of clients, all treatments begin with a consultation, which enables your therapist to make sure that reflexology is right for you. In some instances, your doctor’s permission may be required before treatments can commence, for example, if you have diabetes, although this condition does not preclude a treatment; your therapist just needs to be aware of this and take care around the stomach and pancreas areas. An individual confidential record card will be kept with any relevant notes for future treatments.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A REFLEXOLOGY TREATMENT?

A reflexology treatment lasts for approximately an hour. As it’s just the feet that are being worked on, you remain fully clothed; simply removing shoes and socks.

You’ll be invited to relax on a reclining chair or treatment couch, or to put your feet up on a footstool. Your feet will be cleansed at the start of the treatment and then a variety of reflexology techniques will be used, adapted to suit your individual needs.

AFTER YOUR TREATMENT

To gain maximum benefit from your reflexology treatment, try to rest afterwards - this helps your body’s natural healing process.

Drink plenty of water over the next few days to help flush away toxins. If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to ask your therapist for advice.

BENEFITS OF REFLEXOLOGY

Potential benefits of reflexology can include:

  • Reduced stress
  • Feelings of deep relaxation
  • Increased energy levels
  • The release of endorphins, the body’s feel good hormones (which can also provide pain relief)
  • Improved circulation
  • More efficient removal of impurities and toxins
  • A stronger immune system
  • A sense that the whole body is better balanced or in harmony

Treatment time: Approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cost: £35.00 (+ travel costs if home visit)
How often: Once a week initially, then fortnightly, reducing to once a month over time.

Pay in advance for a course of 6 and receive one treatment free: £175.00

About me

My background is in Family Law where I spent many years as a PA to a Divorce Lawyer. I also work one or two days a week in the Courts on a voluntary basis. I briefly worked for other companies on a temporary and contract basis before moving into the Corporate Business world as a Customer Services Manager. It was during my last 12 years of employment, I re-trained at night school over a period of 3 years as an Holistic and Beauty Therapist. After many years in offices, I knew that one day, I would like to do something to help similarly stressed people, as I now understand the importance of holistic therapies on one's well-being, health and lifestyle.

I wish to give my clients the benefit of holistic therapies and the opportunity for "me time" to relax and unwind during very busy and sometimes, stressful lives. My aim is to help as many clients as possible enjoy an hour or so of relaxation, be it for a massage or reflexology treatment or simply to be cheered up with a manicure.

Massages are carried out in my home but all other treatments may be done in your own home, if that suits you better. I am very flexible with regards to appointment times so please just ask for what suits you when contacting me, as I may well be able to accommodate your requested day and time.

I offer a free consultation service on any treatment, which can be carried out immediately prior to a booking, or you may telephone for advice and further information beforehand.
