Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different point of the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with clients with the aim to promote better health for their clients.

Is reflexology suitable for me?

Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age, from new-born babies to those receiving end of life care.

Will reflexology help me?

Reflexology is not to be taken as a tool to cure, diagnose or prescribe, nor should it be used instead of medical intervention but as a complementary therapy where appropriate. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a person; considering both physiological and environmental and lifestyle factors that might be affecting your wellbeing. Some people find it works for them - some don't. The best way to find out is to try it!

In theory, reflexology aims to bring your body back to its natural balance. After a treatment, you may feel more relaxed and feel a reduce in tension. You may also sleep better and experience better moods and a heightened sense of wellbeing. Other aspects of your life may also improve; this however is very individual.

Reflexology therefore will at the very least aim to help you relax and cope better with the stresses of day to day life/ the week ahead.

 

What happens when I go for a treatment?

A full medical history will be requested at the first treatment and you will be asked to sign a consent form, both of which will be kept confidential. Depending on the type of reflexology (which part of the body e.g. leg or hands), the most clothing that you may need to remove are your socks and shoes.

The therapist will then use their hands to apply pressure to the part of the body they are working on (hands, feet, ears or face), depending on the type of reflexology you have chosen. Generally, the treatment is very relaxing. You may however experience areas of fleeting discomfort.

A course of treatments may be recommended.

 

How will I feel after a reflexology treatment?

It is useful to give feedback to the reflexologist, this may show how your body has responded to the treatment. This might then help the reflexologist tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs. After one or two treatments your body may respond in very noticeable ways. Most people experience a sense of well-being and relaxation; however, sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is usually passing and reflexologists believe that it is part of the healing process.

 

A brief history of reflexology

Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, this therapy was not introduced to the West until Dr William Fitzgerald developed 'Zone therapy'. He believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone.

In the 1930's, Eunice Ingham further developed this zone theory into what is known as reflexology. Her opinion was that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body

Our Services

 

Sports & Remedial Massage

Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.

 

Deep tissue massage therapy

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

 

Pregnancy Massage

Prenatal massage, also known as pregnancy massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Prenatal massage is especially benefical in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back.


Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a gentle, light-touch, noninvasive technique that offers qualified therapists a natural complement to their existing health care protocols. Within the context of breast care, LDT can help alleviate numerous conditions related to pregnancy, including engorgement, sore nipples (transient, chronic), plugged ducts, wounds, fissures, ulcerations, bruises and dermatitis (eczema). This therapy also can provide relief from chronic inflammation and pre- and post-surgical applications, and can be used for cosmetic applications, such as mastoptosis, scars and traumas.


Relaxation/ Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage in the United States. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation , decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion.
