Reflexology is a complementary health therapy based on the belief that each part of the body is interconnected through the nervous system via specific reflex points in the feet. Stimulating these points with pressure can supposedly boost the body’s natural healing reaction. It also promotes relaxation.
Most people benefit from reflexology and it is suitable for all ages, including children and the elderly.
Reflexology has been known to help:
- Aid relaxation
- Improve mood
- Aid sleep
- Relieve tension
- Improve sense of well-being.
The treatment works very much on an individual basis and is a holistic treatment which takes account of both physical and emotional issues.
The patient normally lies on a treatment bed fully clothed or can sit up if preferred. You can choose to have an hour’s treatment, or just half an hour. The treatment involves pressure techniques applied to the whole of the left and right foot. It is normally a dry treatment with oil applied at the end for a soothing foot massage.
This treatment can also be accompanied with general massage in our Combination Massage Package which involves 30 minutes of massage on the back/neck/ shoulders followed by 30 minutes Reflexology on the feet.
The treatment is not recommended for patients in first trimester of pregnancy or those who suffer from epilepsy, diabetes or any heart and circulatory problems and infections. Please note that our advice and treatments do not replace medical advice and treatment. If you have any concerns, please see your GP first.
