Reflexology is the practice of treating reflexes in the hands & feet that correspond to all parts of the body.
This can help to reduce stress, improve circulation and  enable the body to return to a state of normalisation.
Reflexology activates the body’s own healing potential.

Who can benefit from reflexology?

Reflexology & Babies    Reflexology in Pregnancy (inc. Lactation)

As a clinical reflexologist I do not make claims to cure diseases, but most people will benefit from treatments in some way.

Stress is a common fact of life today.
One of the main effects of reflexology is to induce relaxation, which may help in many stress related disorders.

Reflexology is an holistic approach to care, treating the whole person and not just the disease, which often helps with underlying problems.

Reflexology is extremely safe and can be used to treat all ages.
However, certain conditions require special care and a close liaison with your medical practitioner.

Reflexology has been used to help with a wide range of disorders, including:-

Digestive and bowel problems
Back pain
Headaches, including migraine
High blood pressure
Sinus problems

What will happen during a treatment?

The length of a treatment is usually 1 hour.
The first treatment may take longer to allow for personal details, history and reasons for treatment to be discussed.
Any information given is strictly confidential.

You will sit in a reclined position with your bare feet raised.
As your feet are being treated, any reactions will be noted and recorded.
These are important, as they are a guide to areas that require attention.

At the end of the session you should feel relaxed with a sense of well-being.

Will I have any reactions?

Often there is no reaction.
Occasionally people report having a runny nose, slight headache, general tiredness, or a need to visit the toilet more frequently. None of these should last more than a day or two, and is a sign that the body is ridding itself of toxins.

Most people report having a calm relaxed feeling of well-being.
Some people almost bounce out of a treatment feeling totally invigorated and full of energy.

How many treatments will I need?

Reflexology is a natural system that 'peels' away the layers until the original problem is encountered.
When the root cause is finally dealt with it is amazing how many other problems have been eliminated on the way.
The length of time this process takes varies between one person and another; however I will not exceed six treatments if no reactions or  benefits have been experienced.
