Reflexology

Reflexology is a technique of applying gentle pressure to the reflexes of the feet and hands. It is based on an ancient theory that these reflexes are like a body map and relate to every organ, gland and body part, bringing about a state of relaxation, stimulating the body’s own healing processes and encouraging the body systems to re-balance.

Treatment is designed to relax, unwind, energise, invigorate and to bring about balance in the body. The aim is to give each individual client a ‘holistic hug’ and the space to focus on themselves. It is a wonderful way to support you through the stresses placed upon you by everyday life.

Reflexology is suitable for all ages, from baby to older adult, and can be especially helpful for long-term and recurring conditions.

What happens in a treatment? 

Reflexology is performed entirely on the feet, ankles or hands. During a treatment the client lies on their back on a reclining chair, supported by pillows and covered with a soft blanket for warmth.  Gentle massage-like pressure is applied to the skin surface.  Some areas may feel sensitive and the pressure will be adjusted for comfort.

How many treatments will I need? 

Everyone is different. The response to reflexology can be immediate or can sometimes take a little longer than one appointment but often benefits can be seen after 4-5 sessions.  At the initial consultation the reflexologist will be able to advise more fully.

Reflexology is suitable for all ages, from baby to adult and can be especially helpful for long-term and recurring conditions.
