Reflexology stimulates the body's own healing processes. By applying gentle pressure to stimulate reflex points on the feet, reflexology creates a deep state of relaxation and gives the body what it needs. Reflexology is a safe, natural therapy, that can facilitate a boost in energy levels, strengthen the immune system, create a sense of calm and promote physical and emotional healing.
The theory behind reflexology is that all of our body parts, including the organs, nerves, glands and muscles are connected to reflex points on the feet and hands. Stimulating these reflexes creates a direct response in the corresponding part of the body which helps to clear any associated blockages, restore balance and create a sense of overall harmony and wellbeing within the body and mind.
FERTILITY AND PREGNANCY
Reflexology is widely used to support a natural or assisted conception, as it can help to balance hormones, regulate periods and ovulation, and reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety.
It is a lovely treatment to have while pregnant as it can help to ease pregnancy related conditions such as nausea, heartburn, and back pain, support a natural birth and reduce labour time.
Postnatally, reflexology is a great opportunity for new parents to allow themselves some much needed TLC, while helping the body return to its pre-pregnant state and supporting emotional wellbeing.
Facial Reflexology activates natural healing processes by stimulating reflex points on the face. Tension in the face, head and neck is released and the body and mind rebalanced, while the client drifts into a deep relaxation.
Reflexology is beneficial to children of all ages, including babies. It can be effective in treating common conditions in infants such as colic, wind and poor sleep. The same principles apply as in general reflexology treatments - we are stimulating natural healing by applying gentle pressure to reflex points on the feet to promote relaxation and wellbeing.
