What is reflexology?

Have you heard of reflexology and wondered what it is? And how it work?

It’s a question I often get asked when I tell people im a reflexologist. And this is what I tell them. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural, relaxing complementary therapy. I work on the feet mostly, sometimes the hands. Other therapists are also trained in facial and ear reflexology. The theory behind it is that there are reflex points which correspond with different areas of the body. As a reflexologist I work these points and areas with my fingers, aiming to bring those areas back to balance and therefore aiding the body to work as well as it can.

Whilst there are few available scientific studies specifically into how reflexology works, there has been some positive research projects done with reflexology, but unfortunately as yet not large enough for us to make clinical claims.

As a reflexologist I don’t cure or diagnose, I work with each person individually to help promote deep relaxation and wellbeing. Reducing stress in people’s lives is key to good health, and reflexology is great for allowing you some time to switch off, relax and reduce those stress levels.

The theory is that reflexology helps to restore the body’s natural balance. Usually after a treatment, you’ll feel more relaxed, less tense. You may notice yourself sleeping better, and your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also notice other aspects of your health improving too, but this happens on an individual basis. Some people find it works for them, so don’t. The only way to know if it’s for you is to try it.

So, are you intrigued? Thinking about giving it a try?

Why not get in touch today, book your first treatment and find out (in my opinion) what you are missing out on.
