Reflexology treatments are a time to be calm and relaxed, and this deep relaxation will allow you to unwind and feel energised
What happens during a reflexology treatment?
During your reflexology treatment a gentle pressure is applied to specific reflex points on your feet (or hands). These wonderful interactive charts from the Association of Reflexology show how the reflex points on the feet relate to structures and organs in the body. By applying pressure to the reflex points in your feet it is affecting the whole of your body.
Reflexology treatments have been shown to be effective for:
•Migraine and headaches
•Stress related conditions
Who can benefit from reflexology?
As reflexology is a safe and gentle therapy it can be used to treat all ages from very young babies to the elderly, women, men, teenagers, and children.
How may reflexology help?
• Help to restore and maintain the body’s free flow of energy
• Reduce stress in mind and body
• Increase energy and enthusiasm for your life
• Help you to cope with the challenges you face without feeling stressed
• Become more creative and resourceful
Reflexology and Fertility
Reflexology and fertility are in the news.
Have you been trying to get pregnant for a while and are struggling with feelings of disappointment,stress and anxiety wondering whether you are going to have a baby?
Are you wondering what you can do to help yourself and your partner and to start to feel more in control of the situation? I have worked with many couples with fertility problems, authored a book called the Power to Conceive and been at the Fertility Show.
Association of Reflexologists
Reflexology is explained by the Association of Reflexologists as follows –
“Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients”
The Association of Reflexologists website contains plenty of information. Click charts to access their interactive charts. I am committed to continuing my professional development through regularly attending courses and workshops.
In addition to reflexology, I have a degree in Biochemistry BSc (Hons) which has given me invaluable knowledge of the body at a cellular level and have studied the impact of diet and exercise on the optimal functioning of the body.
