I believe that using reflexology to treat the whole person instead of individual ailments or symptoms is one of the most effective forms of preventative healthcare.
Reflexology is the technique of applying gentle pressure to the reflexes on the feet and hands to bring about a feeling of deep relaxation, helping you return to a state of balance and wellbeing.
Reflexology helps relaxation, improves mood, aids sleep, can relieve tension and improves the overall sense of wellbeing. By working with individuals using a holistic approach and helping in these areas, your practitioner is assisting and supporting your body’s ability to cope with illness or problems. In turn, this helps overcome negative perceptions of the illness and can reduce its effects elsewhere.
As a complementary therapy, reflexology can leave you feeling totally relaxed. It is an extremely flexible therapy and reflexology can be used in conjunction with other healthcare practices. Each treatment lasts around an hour and there is a view that multiple sessions have a cumulative effect.
There is a view that pregnancy reflexology helps and supports a woman as her body changes through pregnancy.
Precision Reflexology is a light-touch approach which is both powerful and precise – relying on a person's energy rather than pressure – and can be used as a standalone treatment or incorporated easily into other reflexology sequences. It is particularly effective when working with fragile clients or those finding it hard to release held emotions within the body.
I believe that post-natal reflexology can help new mothers adjust to life with a newborn baby. It can support you as your body and menstrual cycle are returned to normal.
Around one in six couples trying to conceive experience problems and it can commonly take two to three years to become pregnant.
Gentle and calming for your baby, it helps you to feel confident coping with their needs 24 hours a day. Its aim is to boost the immune system, ease colic, wind, reflux, constipation, tummy upsets, teething pains or ear congestion.
