Reflexology is a specific type of massage that works the reflex points on the foot. The whole of our body can be mapped out on the feet, each separate part of the foot representing the reflex of a particular part of the body. A trained reflexologist can feel and see the areas of imbalance in the reflexes of the foot, and will work on those areas to help restore homeostasis. Reflexology stimulates or calms these reflexes according to their needs, and as with all other complementary and alternative therapies, it aims to relax the body down so that the energy systems can flow freely and the body's ability to heal itself will automatically kick start. All reflexologists work slightly differently, but they are all working with the healing energy of the body via the feet. They can also access and balance the meridian energy that runs through the feet.
Reflexology is a safe and gentle technique suitable for all ages, even your pet can benefit from it! It also works excellently in combination with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
Regular reflexology maintains and improves physical and mental well being. It improves and stimulates all the systems of the body, as well as the body's natural detoxifying processes.
Not surprisingly, people receiving regular Reflexology feel they are coping better with life and get relief from many of their symptoms. They often find they are not as prone to minor ailments, as regular treatment helps to lessen the effect of their stress levels, helping them to relax down in general and take life in their stride.
The efficacy of Reflexology in relieving the symptoms of many disorders has been recognized through a number of research projects, and in some areas has been available in NHS departments as a complement to orthodox medicine, thanks to the large number of nursing staff who having recognised its validity have trained as reflexologists. Marie Curie also recognise the benefits of Reflexology and offer sessions to those suffering with cancer and their carers.
