What is Clinical Reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of massage, which helps to relieve tension and treat the symptoms of certain ailments. It works by stimulating the reflex points located in the feet as they correspond with other areas and networks in the body.
What are the benefits of Reflexology?
There are many benefits of having reflexology treatments, such as an increase in energy which then results in a deep state of relaxation as it stimulates the nerve endings to alleviate pain and can be used on a variety of concerns, including:-
- Sleep related issues
- Post pregnancy
- Back Pain
How does Clinical Reflexology help with our client’s concerns?
Reflexology promotes better health and aids relaxation. This also takes into account the physical and non-physical factors which could be affecting a person’s general or acute well-being.
Please see this link for NHS Evidence on the use of Clinical Reflexology to treat a variety of concerns.
What can I expect during my Reflexology treatment?
During the treatment, clients will be expected to remove their shoes and socks only, allowing the therapist to work on the reflex points. The areas treated are the lower legs and feet, providing a relaxing massage.
However, in some areas of concern the massage can become discomforting as the area may feel tender when touched. A full consultation will be needed before any treatment is performed to address health, lifestyle and find out about specific concerns you may be suffering from. A course of Treatments may be required if we feel it is necessary. After the treatment has taken place the side effects could include the following:-
- Feeling lethargic
- An increase in energy
- Nauseous or tearful
Please understand that these outcomes are part of the healing process and can vary dependant on a person’s needs. It’s all about the treatment being tailored to you.
How does Reflexology work alongside Aromatherapy?
Both Reflexology and Aromatherapy compliment each other. Aromatherapy can aid relaxation further and aid any tension or discomfort. Aromatherapy also works on the olfactory system which aids deeper relaxation, whereas reflexology works on stimulating the reflex points within the body to alleviate tension. When used together they allow for a deeper relaxation experience and further reduce tension.
