Reflexology is based on an understanding that every part of the foot or hand directly relates to organs, glands or systems of the body. By applying pressure using the fingers to different parts of your foot (called reflex points) this brings about a response in another area of your body. The reflexology treatment aims to relax your body, flush out toxins that have built up in the corresponding organs and improves blood and lymph circulation. It helps release endorphins like serotonin into the blood stream to lift your mood and it stimulates the release of pain killing hormones.
When I treat clients I have a consultation with them about their general health and how they are feeling. I can then personalise the treatment to focus on some areas of the foot more than others for example someone might tell me they get frequent headaches. I take a look at their feet and often I can see dry skin on the top of their big toe the area that directly relates to their head. I therefore spend a little more time on this area. Someone else may suffer from constipation and the area around the middle of their foot is tender so I focus my attention in this area. Reflexology is amazing in helping so many conditions because it encourages healing and helps us cope with illness. It is excellent for stress relief, aiding relaxation and lifting our mood. It can help relieve the symptoms of pre-menstrual tension (PMT), the menopause, sleep disturbances, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and many other problems
