Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a holistic complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. This ancient healing art has been used by our ancestors for thousands of years. The earliest evidence of this healing art was recorded in an Egyptian tomb drawing dated 2330BC.

How is it given?

It is a simple, non-invasive specific pressure technique applied to the feet, which is based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Treatment consists of massaging these reflex areas, mainly with the thumb.

Some practitioners may also include work on points found in the face and ears. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension

During a typical reflexology session the reflexologist will take a detailed medical history. Sessions are usually performed in a comfortable chair or couch. If it is to be performed on the feet, the client will be asked to remove footwear and socks but other forms of reflexology require no removal of clothing. The practitioner will make a visual and tactile examination of the area to be worked before beginning the precise reflexology massage movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of an appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers.

Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures. The therapist’s expert touch will help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension. The result is an overall sense of wellbeing.
