What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a pressure point massage of the feet. It is a gentle and non-invasive treatment and as such is suitable for everyone. Reflexology is based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Just like Acupuncture and Shiatsu it works to balance and strengthen the flow of energy that runs through zones or meridians throughout the body. More specific to Reflexology, the 10 longitudinal zones running across the body correspond to organs, musculature and glands which have been mapped out. The curve of the foot corresponds to the curve of the spine; the narrowest point of the foot corresponds to the waist line.
The stress response can have a particularly detrimental effect on the body due to high levels of the hormone cortisol. Research has shown that prolonged exposure can lead to inhibited immune response, muscle wastage, digestive disorders and poor memory recall. By bringing about a deep relaxation, reflexology allows for the whole body to function more efficiently. As a holistic therapy, reflexology focuses on all aspects of each individual, looking for areas where positive lifestyle changes can be undertaken to create lasting results.
Fertility, Pregnancy & Postnatal Care
Trying to conceive can be a stressful experience. Reflexology is a wonderful tool for fertility, relieving stress and creating relaxation, helping your body to function at its optimum. Reflexology can support you and your partner.
Pregnancy reflexology can be a valuable tool for keeping fit and healthy during your pregnancy. As baby grows and gets bigger your body responds and adjusts to make space for your new addition. Regular reflexology treatments can help you to adjust to these changes week by week of your pregnancy. During these sessions you’ll be seated in a comfortable semi-reclined position.
Postnatal reflexology is designed to help new mothers adjust to their new responsibilities and heal after birth. You are welcome to bring babies along to treatments, where you can feed and relax together.
