What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a technique for activating the body’s natural healing powers. By applying pressure to the nerve endings in the feet, the hands or ears, the reflexologist can contact the various organs, glands and structures within the body and bring any imbalances back into balance.
Reflexology is an holistic approach to natural health care. It is gentle, relaxing and unintrusive, and above all reflexology is preventative.
The treatment last approximately 45 minutes and involves the practitioner working over both of the patients feet and possibly the hands or ears. Alternating pressure is applied to detect any congestion along the energy zones, which can then be effectively cleared. During the treatment discomfort may be felt in areas which may be out of balance, but this is only momentary subsiding as the practitioner breaks down the congestion, encouraging the body’s natural healing system to correct the imbalance.
Can Reflexology Help Me?
Anyone can be treated with reflexology, from babies to the elderly. Most conditions respond to treatment; particularly skin, hormonal and digestive disorders, insomnia, migraine, sciatica, depression, asthma and back, neck and shoulder pain.
Reflexology is unbelievably relaxing and patients of this therapy have attested to better health and a definite reduction, if not disappearance, of their conditions.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments required will depend upon the condition and the individual being treated. The older or more severe the condition the more treatments a patient may require.
Many patients use reflexology as a preventative therapy, to maintain the natural health and balance of the body.
