About Reflexology

Reflexology has been used by many different cultures across the globe for thousands of years. It is a form of complementary therapy which focuses on the whole person with the aim of balancing the mind, body and spirit.

It is based on the theory the organs and parts of the body are mapped in the soles of the feet, hands and face by reflex areas connected by the nervous system. There are 72,000 nerve endings in the feet alone.

The therapist uses a massage technique and light pressure on specific areas of the foot or face, that correspond to the organs, glands and all systems of the body.

This technique will stimulate the nervous system connecting to that particular region of the body, organ or gland. The body will rebalance through the body systems post treatment to assist homeostasis, a natural equilibrium of the body. It can also help to balance hormones and reduce menopausal symptoms.

How can reflexology support you?

Reflexology may be beneficial in restoring balance and harmony in the body and releases tension. It can help facilitate a deep state of relaxation, calm the emotions and nervous system and produce a serene mind. Many people describe a profound sense of relaxation, increased energy, reduced levels of pain and anxiety following a session.

Reflexology can significantly reduce stress levels with regular treatments.

Stress wreaks havoc on the mind and body. Until now, it has not been clear exactly how stress influences disease and health. Now researchers have found that chronic psychological stress is associated with the body losing its ability to regulate the inflammatory response. The research shows for the first time that the effects of psychological stress on the body’s ability to regulate inflammation can promote the development and progression of disease.

Reflexology helps the body eliminate toxins and impurities.

The body has built-in mechanisms for cleansing itself, mainly the lymphatic, excretory, and integumentary systems (i.e. the lymph nodes, the kidneys, the colon and the skin). If these become blocked by congestion or do not function properly, toxins and waste matter build up. Reflexology causes all the systems of the body to function more efficiently, including those that eliminate waste products.

Reflexology revitalises energy. We know when our ‘juices are flowing’ and when they’re not.

We each experience our energy levels in personal and subtle ways. But one thing is certain: Energy flows. It circulates consciously and unconsciously throughout the body on a physical, emotional, and mental level. There is also energy of the spirit that is just as crucial to the overall well-being. By relaxing and opening up energy pathways, reflexology revitalises the body and supplies it with energy on all levels.

Reflexology can be used as preventative health care

Preventative health care is becoming more important as we realise the health-threatening dangers of our environment: stress, fatigue, chemical additives in food, polluted water supplies, and poor air quality, to name only a few.

The added strain on everyone’s immune system today should warn us to find time to unwind and relax, because the immune system functions at its peak only when a person successfully manages the stressful situations of daily life. Only when the body is well balanced is a person in good shape to ward off illness as stress lowers the body’s immunity to fight sickness and disease.
