Reflexology is an ancient therapy practised for over 5000 years. It was introduced to the Western world more than 100 years ago. It is a non-intrusive therapy based on the theory that there are points on the feet and lower legs, hands and lower arms, or ears and face that correspond with different areas of the body.
Reflexologists believe that working on these points with thumb, fingers or knuckles to apply pressure, aids relaxation and helps to improve an overall sense of well-being. Improved well-being is more than absence of illness, it includes an improved frame of mind and better interactions with those around you, and increased enjoyment of life.
Many of us experience increased levels of stress in our modern world and by recognising that this can have a detrimental effect we can seek ways to take action to address our own healthcare needs. Reflexology is one way of helping us manage the stress of modern life.
How will I benefit from Reflexology?
As a holistic therapist I am here to support you as a whole person and to promote your well-being. As a Reflexologist I do not diagnose, prescribe or cure.
It is not possible to know in advance how you will react to a treatment. Many people do feel relaxed and may sleep better and may notice they feel happier and that their general well-being has improved. Sometimes there are other improvements but this depends on the individual. Most clients will have a number of treatments and perhaps choose regular maintenance after that at monthly intervals.
There are now some positive research projects on reflexology but the body of evidence is not large enough for Reflexologists to make clinical claims of effectiveness.
