Reflexology

Reflexology (feet & hands)

Reflexology is the stimulation of points on the feet, hands and face which relate to all parts of the body.

Reflexology helps your body to stimulate natural energy to rebalance itself, relieve tension and encourage healing from the inside out.

Reflexology may benefit many issues including the following:

  • PMS/menopausal symptoms
  • hormonal imbalances
  • digestive issues
  • joint pain and mobility (arthritis, sore back, stiff joints)
  • respiratory problems (asthma, ear, nose and throat problems)
  • sleep issues
  • sinusitis
  • fibromyalgia

 

The main aim of Reflexology is to promote and encourage relaxation, restful sleep and induce a state of calm and well-being throughout your body and mind.

Reflexology does not cure, as only the body can do that, but it does facilitate healing and balancing within the body.

During a foot Reflexology session you only remove your shoes and socks and then lie back and relax – and no it doesn’t tickle.

Facial Reflexology (Bergman Method)

If you don’t like your feet being touched or love a facial then Facial Reflexology is for you.  It has the same benefits as Foot Reflexology and as we store a lot of emotions in our face, working the facial reflexes can assist to give a lovely fresh complexion and relieve mental tension and tight facial muscles.  For those who can’t attend in person, a guided self-treatment can be carried out via Zoom.

Reflexology Lymph Drainage

Reflexology Lymph Drainage (RLD) was developed by Sally Kay BSc(Hons) whilst she was working in cancer care.  RLD is an award winning Reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes on the feet.

RLD is used to treat Lymphoedema and may also be useful for:

  • arthritis
  • asthma
  • digestive issues
  • eczema
  • chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ME
  • fluid retention
  • sinus problems
  • headaches, migraines
  • PMS
  • muscular tension, general aches and pains

Reflexology for Peripheral Neuropathy

Carol Samuel’s Pain in Cancer Survivors Reflexology course is designed to aid people who are experiencing pain as a result of cancer and the treatments received for it.  The Reflexology sequence I learned is for Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy which is one of the most common types of pain experienced by cancer survivors.

Virtual Reflexology

Virtual Reflexology is similar to a hands on session; it’s just that we aren’t physically in the same room.  This session is by Zoom and is useful for those who cannot attend in person.  It involves you finding a quiet space and lying or sitting at your appointment time.  We have a chat before and after the session; during the session it is useful for me to be able to see your feet on screen but don’t worry full instructions are issued on booking.
