What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a traditional healing treatment that goes back thousands of years to the ancient civilisations of Egypt, China, Russia and America. Recognising that one’s feet hold the end points of systems that travel through one’s body and control working aspects throughout, the art of reflexology aims to target specific points on the feet to relieve the symptoms of various conditions, re-balance the body and encourage relaxation and healing. Reflexology is suitable for all ages.
After an in-depth personal consultation to identify your own requirements, the early part of the treatment you receive will induce a deep state of relaxation in you before I stimulate the points on your feet that may have any number of several positive effects upon your body. These include:
Relief for many acute and chronic health conditions
Release from mental stress and tension
Improvements in digestion, circulation and sleep
Rebalance of the body’s mechanisms to ensure optimum performance
Increase in energy
Prevention of illness and conditions
Reflexology before, during & after pregnancy
There are many benefits to receiving Reflexology before, during and after pregnancy. Assisting the balance of hormones and the menstrual cycle is very important when planning a pregnancy, and Reflexology can help the whole body to be holistically balanced and relaxed during this time.
Common pregnancy ailments such as morning sickness, fluid retention, swelling, backache and postnatal depression may be relieved, along with many more. Reflexology also helps to support the body through the many changes that occur, especially preparing for birth, and afterwards assisting hormone balance, milk supply and the menstrual cycle as the body returns to normal.
Reflexology can not be given during the first three months of pregnancy.
I use Songbird products in my treatments (unless others are requested). More details about these can be found here.
