Practiced over 4,000 years ago by the ancient civilisations of Egypt, China, and the native Americans, reflexology is a natural healing science based on the principle that reflex points on the feet, and to a lesser degree the hands, reflect the major organs and systems of the body.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy, the aim being to treat the whole person – relaxing, toning, stimulating, and strengthening the whole mind and body system. By using the body’s own natural healing processes many health problems may be alleviated:
By applying pressure to minute reflex points, the corresponding parts of the body are stimulated, alleviating congestion and inflammation, improving nerve and blood supply and restoring balance to the body. Reflexology also promotes deep relaxation and a sense of well-being.
There is no age limit for reflexology – people of all ages can and do benefit from treatment. Reflexology treatments work in conjunction with health care from your doctor.
A reflexology treatment session will last about one hour, and should be a pleasant and relaxing experience for the patient. The number of treatments will depend on the individual and the nature of the disorder, with many people feeling the benefits after three or four treatments.
Reflexology is a completely safe form of therapy – no equipment is used other than the therapist’s hands. Treatment consists of the application of refined pressure on the feet, concluding with a wonderfully relaxing foot massage.
All reflexology sessions are carried out by a fully qualified partitioner who is a member of the Association of Reflexologists.
The medical profession is rapidly acknowledging the fact that many diseases are caused by stress because stress lowers our immunity to disease. As reflexology is a marvellous relaxation therapy, it reduces the detrimental effect of stress on our health.
Many patients enjoy a monthly reflexology treatment to help maintain health and general relaxation.
