Reflexology dates back more than 2000 years, it works on the principle that zones on the feet and hands link to corresponding areas in the body and stimulating those areas helps your body to maintain physical and psychological equilibrium.
Reflexology aids circulation and the elimination of cellular waste and toxic build up allowing the body to heal itself.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages and can be used to encourage healing or as a relaxation tool.
After a free, full consultation, a typical reflexology treatment lasts for 1 hour, starting with a relaxing foot massage followed by an exploration of the foot or hand with a thumbing and kneading technique looking for any areas of tension or crystal deposits, next I will spend time applying pressure on areas of interest followed by a second massage to stimulate the circulation and excretion of toxins.
You may or may not suffer with some mild side effects after the treatment, including and not limited to; headache, nausea, dizziness and the need to urinate, lethargy, thirst, diarrhoea or even flu like symptoms, this is known as the healing crisis and is caused by the release of toxins such as uric acid, lactic acid, calcium deposits and carbon dioxide in to the system, not every body feels these side effects but if you do they should subside within 48 hours, if they continue or you have any concerns please contact your G.P
Please remember to stay hydrated!
