Reflexology

Relax, relieve tension, and boost your circulatory system with a rejuvenating reflexology session. Reflexology is an ancient non-invasive form of healing that promotes relaxation, lowers stress levels, and encourages the removal of waste products and toxins from the body. It can improve circulation and help with a variety of conditions, including:

  • Constipation
  • Colic
  • PMS
  • Headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Skin conditions
  • Insomnia
  • Pain management

About Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the idea that reflex points on the feet, hands, face, and ears link to other parts of our body. By applying pressure to points through massage, it’s possible to relieve tension and restore balance within the body. Use goes back hundreds of years, with evidence of the Chinese, Ancient Egyptians, and North American Indians using foot massage to heal people. There’s even a pictograph of foot pressure therapy in an Egyptian tomb that dates from 2500 to 2330 B.C!

Being a holistic therapy, reflexology treats the whole body rather than specific symptoms. It can show areas where there has been or is currently an energy disturbance. Therapists may also observe discolouration, dryness, or oedemas and may discover crystalline deposits. It’s an ever-developing field, with a range of specialisms designed to improve certain conditions. I offer the following:

What to expect at consultations

Your first appointment includes a full health consultation to ensure suitability for treatment. We’ll discuss your general health, lifestyle, and medical issues along with your reasons for seeking reflexology. I’ll also talk you through the process, and you can ask any questions you may have.

It’s a gentle treatment that will feel relaxing and pain-free. Usually, you’ll lie on the couch under blankets at a slight incline with your feet exposed. It’s important you feel comfortable though, so if you’d rather sit, I will adapt the treatment for you.

Treatments

Reflexology is suitable and safe for everyone, from newborns to the elderly, though an adult must accompany children under 16.

Treatments usually take place in my treatment room upstairs. If stairs are an issue for you, please let me know when booking and I will arrange an alternative location.

Your first appointment includes a consultation, so please allow extra time. It’s also a good idea to leave time after your treatment to come back to reality and hydrate before going back into the real world.

Reflexology (1 hour) £40.00

Three treatments booked and paid for in advance £105.00

Child sessions (under 12) (30 mins) £30.00
