Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the fact that the feet and hands provide a map of the body, giving a comprehensive picture of the recipient’s health.
There are 10 vertical zones or “line of energy” that course through the body. As pressure is applied to specific parts of the feet, these lines are stimulated so that the energy can flow freely through the whole body.
The aim of reflexology is to detoxify the body, thus easing discomfort, decreasing stress levels and providing a deep sense of relaxation.
While reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe, it does help with a wide range of health problems including: arthritis, asthma, anxiety, back pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive disorders such as irritable bowel, hormonal imbalances, migraines, stress related disorders to name but a few.
What to expect during the treatment?
The Reflexology treatment is carried out in the comfort of a reclining chair/ or a massage table and can be performed on the feet or the hands, if preferred. The stimulation of the reflexes is gentle but firm so that the effect is soothing and does not tickle. If there is any discomfort felt on any of the reflexes it is usually fleeting and is an indication of congestion of imbalance in the related part of the body.
I use oil or wax for all my treatments. Each treatment includes a consultation and 5 min relaxation at the end.
Treatments available: 1 hour (£40)
