Interest in Reflexology has grown rapidly in the UK as more and more people are turning to holistic/complementary therapies rather than taking pharmaceutical drugs which can have harmful side effects.
Reflexology is not just 'playing with the feet' or 'tickling the toes' but, can bring about significant health benefits.
Reflexology is a method of stimulating nerve endings that follow a path through zones of the body in order to activate energy and aid the healing process by applying pressure to specific points on the base of the foot with the thumbs.
There are 10 identified zones in the body which travel up the front of the body and down the back.
The aim of the treatment is to relieve stress and/or emotion, general relaxation, stimulate or uplift the body, mind and spirit and improve the person's general health and well being.
During the treatment, it is quite common not to feel anything, although the Reflexology will still be effective. Often it takes a couple of treatments to 'awaken' the reflexes. You may find that during subsequent treatments your feet will become more sensitive. Be aware that certain medication, serious illnesses or nerve damage can dull the sensations but not the effectiveness.
Do tell your Therapist if and when you feel anything that is sore, tender or sharp, as they will be able to work this area in many different ways to help rectify any problems.
A typical treatment will last about 35-40 minutes.
