Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient form of therapy that is applied to the feet. The theory of reflexology is based on the principles that feet and hands have reflexes which correspond to the body, including organs and glands. As the therapist works over the feet, the body starts to relax and rebalance bringing improved health and well-being. The therapist uses a technique known as "thumb walking" around the foot, different pressures are applied, even people who have very ticklish feet find the technique relaxing and very acceptable.

Reflexology is very suitable for anyone trying complementary therapies for the first time, as only the feet are uncovered.

I have first hand experience in treating people experiencing cancer, MS and ME, for whom there have been some amazing results.  I have also found it very beneficial for teenagers, especially at exam time.

What are the benefits?

Reflexology is a very effective treatment for coping with stress, as the therapist works over the feet, this relaxes the recipient which, allows the body to rebalance itself , in turn this brings a feeling of well-being. Reflexology is also very successful in relieving  discomfort caused by acute and chronic health conditions, these to name a few are back, neck and shoulder pain, depression, MS, headaches and migraines, bowl disorders, eczema, psoriasis, eating disorders, circulatory problems, glandular conditions, infertility and many more.
