Reflexology is a natural therapy working on the principle that different areas of the feet and hands are related to different areas of the body and helps to restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium and encourage healing. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of “imbalance”, and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonising the body. Reflexology treats the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease.
These are some of the conditions that clients have presented to me when they have come for a treatment:
- Back pain
- Digestive disorders
- Hormone imbalance
- Pregnancy related conditions (including preparation for pregnancy)
- Sleep deprivation
- Or simply as a PREVENTATIVE measure
After a reflexology session you generally should feel extremely relaxed. Your sleep may be improved and any physical symptoms that you may have been feeling may subside. And there is frequently a sensation of ‘walking on air’ on leaving, together with the lightness of spirit that this feeling brings.
