What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person. You’re not just a symptom or a presenting issue - you are a complex being. Reflexologists like to consider the whole of your physical, emotional and social needs, all of which can affect your wellbeing, when they are working with you.

I give most treatments to the feet or faces of my clients as I have found these to be easier to work with, and most effective. The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally.

Foot reflexology is a gentle holistic therapy which stimulates nerve endings and reflex points in the feet, hands or face.  These points reflect the body’s organs and complete systems (skin, digestion, circulation etc.).  

Gently pressing, kneading or stroking these points can help your body to relax, improve sleep, release tension, help reduce symptoms of minor ailments and improve your mood and wellbeing.

Facial reflexology originates from a combination of ancient Vietnamese, Native American and Asian techniques and theories, which map reflex points on the face. These have more recently been integrated with modern reflexology and head massage techniques to create a unique, enjoyable therapy which you can now experience as a treatment.

Facial reflexology is a beautifully relaxing, holistic, therapeutic treatment which is carried out on the face and head. It can relieve tension which accumulates in the face, head and neck muscles. It's effective in reducing stress and tiredness, and can help to improve the condition and tone of the skin due to improved lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. It also incorporates some elements of massage and pressure points to enhance the experience.

Reflexology is relaxing to receive, you just have to lie down. If we're working to support you at home via online sessions, we work reflexology points on the hands or face instead – much easier than trying to reach your own toes!

After reflexology, you may notice that you feel more relaxed, that you sleep better and that you feel more balanced overall.

Reflexology is a powerful way to resolve or reduce the impact of many health issues, especially for women's health, AND it’s a fantastic way for people to feel calmer, sleep better and feel less stressed.
