Reflexology #01

Reflexology


Reflexology is a relaxing, natural therapy that has been practised for thousands of years. It is the application of gentle pressure to the feet or hands, which stimulates reflex points corresponding to all parts of the body. The treatments are non-invasive and encourage the natural healing process.

A series of Reflexology treatments can enhance the body’s ability to heal itself, and help the systems to function more effectively. It is beneficial for a wide range of health conditions and suitable for all ages. The treatments promote good health and a sense of wellbeing.

Reflexology aims to holistically treat imbalances in the body. It brings about a state of deep relaxation and relieves stress (a major cause of illness). Therefore, by lowering stress levels, Reflexology can be seen as preventative.

• Natural, non-invasive and drug-free

How many treatments should I have?

Some people naturally respond to the treatment very quickly, and others take longer to notice the benefits. It depends on many factors, including how long you have had the condition for. Please do not feel disheartened if there is no immediate improvement.

A course of 4-6 treatments is usually recommended. You may choose to visit weekly until a consistent improvement is recorded, progressing to fortnightly and then to monthly intervals. After a course of treatments you may choose to come regularly to help maintain good health and relieve stress.


Contraindications:

Lucy will be unable to provide a treatment for you if you have a high fever or a foot infection, i.e. Athlete’s Foot, severe verrucae. In the case of a foot infection, hand Reflexology may be offered instead.
