reflexology as a holistic treatment
Reflexology treats the body holistically - or as a whole. The aim is to address the cause of the condition as well as alleviate the symptoms - ensuring long term health and wellness.
Reflexology works very well at reducing stress levels. As stress is a contributing factor to 90% of illnesses this can help to relieve and alleviate many conditions. The word disease can be broken down to dis - ease. Working on the theory that the body works best when all aspects are running smoothly and efficiently the body will be at less risk of disease if every system is healthy.
what will happen in the session?
In the first session your medical history, lifestyle and diet will be discussed. Your way of life and the food you put into your body will undoubtedly have an effect on your body's happiness!
You will receive a relaxing tea tree oil foot soak (not for pregnant women). The reflexology treatment takes place in a reclining chair, which is especially beneficial for those clients who are heavily pregnant and find lying on their back uncomfortable.
It will feel like a relaxing foot massage, but I will actually be addressing every system, organ and limb of the body. The reflexology treatment will last for 45 minutes. Subtle changes can be detected in specific points on the feet and at the end of the treatment any points found to be out of balance will be reviewed. We can also discuss a course of action for you health goals.
A course of treatments may be recommended depending on your body's needs.
