Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points (reflex areas) on the feet/lower leg and hands correspond with different areas of the body. The reflex areas form a map of the body with the right foot corresponding to the right side of the body and the left foot corresponding to the left side. Reflexologists believe that massaging these areas allows the symptoms and their causes to be treated.

Reflexology does not claim to be a ‘cure-all’ but is known to help relaxation and improve the mood of the client. It helps to relieve tension, aids sleep and improves a sense of well-being.

Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside mainstream healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

I’m also a member of the Association of Reflexologists, who provide support and training to make sure we give the best possible service to our clients.

Preparing for a reflexology session

In your first consultation, we’ll spend an extra half an hour talking about you, establishing whether you have any existing health conditions. Please also bring along details of any existing medication. Don’t worry if you have verrucae as I can cover these before your treatment. Unfortunately, I can’t treat you if you have an infectious skin condition such as Athlete’s Foot.
