What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a therapy based on the principle that there are points on the feet (or reflexes) that relate to different organs and systems in the body. It works by massaging and stimulating these reflexes, which works with the meridian system to release tension and stress in the corresponding areas. Tension and stress can cause illness in the body. The aim is to bring balance and wellbeing. By releasing energy blockages in the body we can help the body to heal itself, or prevent illness.
In a typical session you will remain fully clothed and lying down while I massage your feet using an unsented lotion. The treatment usually takes around 30minutes and I allow time before for consultation and afterwards to debrief.
Reflexology in pregnancy
Pregnancy can be a challenging time. You might experience an array of pregnancy related symptoms. I will not treat your pregnancy as an illness. But by balancing the systems in your body, you may find some relief. At this time I will not offer treat anyone who is less that 14 weeks pregnant.
Reflexology is also beneficial postnatally as your body readjusts to it’s non-pregnant state, and as you recover from birth. Hormones can change rapidly.
I am happy to offer treatments to anyone…. you don’t have to be pregnant! Most people can benefit. Please contact me to find out more.
