Reflexology is a holistic healing technique based on treating ‘reflexes’ in the feet, hands and ears which correspond to congestion or tension in glands, organs and other parts of the body.
Reflexology is non-intrusive, indirect method of healing parts of the body (such as organs) that can not normally be effected by massage generally. The treatment is often very relaxing as well as providing a well needed boost of energy to the entire body.
Reflexology treatment can:
- Relieve stress and tension
- Improve blood supply and promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses (thereby improving the flow of blood and nutrients to all parts of the body including organs)
- Reduce toxicity
- Improve immunity, and
- Help the body to achieve homeostasis.
The treatment can be undertaken fully clothed, with only the shoes and socks removed. The pressure used is firm enough so that the feet do not feel ‘ticklish’, yet not so deep that the client feels pain.
Over the next 48 hours the client may notice a subtle clearing of toxins from congested systems as they are processed and eliminated. This is a good sign that the treatment has made positive changes to the body’s health.
