Foot chartWhat is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the organs, glands and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly may help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. The reflexology foot chart illustrates where these reflexes are on your feet.

The idea behind Reflexology is not new. In fact, it was practised as early as 2330 B.C. by the Egyptians. Reflexology as we know it today was first researched and developed by Eunice Ingham, the pioneer of this field. Her first book on Reflexology was published in 1938. And since 1942, Reflexology workshops have been conducted year round.

The Ingham Method of reflexology is used primarily for relaxing tension. Doctors agree that over 75% of our health problems can be linked to nervous stress and tension. Reflexology improves nerve and blood supply, and helps nature to normalise.

What happens when I go for a treatment?

Your treatment takes place in a very comfortable reclining chair. I will use my hands to apply varying pressure to the reflexes on your feet. I may be able to feel subtle changes or congestion in specific reflexes, and by working these reflexes may affect the corresponding organ or system of the body.

The application and effect of this therapy are unique to each person, and so each individual will respond to the treatment differently. Some people find it incredibly relaxing throughout the entire session, others feel some reflexes slightly sensitive or indeed, uncomfortable or painful. If this is the case, less pressure is applied and a lighter approach taken to decongest the area. During the treatment, some people may note a sense of well-being and feel very 'chilled out'! Some people may become emotional or feel nauseous afterwards, but this is transitory and is part of the healing process. After a number of treatments your body may begin to re-balance, and the physical and emotional symptoms may settle down.

A specific treatment plan can be tailored to your needs, so a combination of different reflexology techniques may be used, such as 'conventional relfexology techniques', Advanced Reflexology Techniques (ART) and/or Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT). VRT is where you also receive a 10-15 minute treatment while standing.
