What is Reflexology

It is a specialised massage usually of the feet but may also be performed on the hands or the ears.

Reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt and China. In 1913 a Dr William Fitsgerald introduced zone therapy to the west. His findings were further research by several people until in 1930 Eunice Ingham developed Zone Therapy into what we now now as Reflexology. She noticed that congestion or tension in a part of the foot mirrors tension or congestion in part of the body.

This picture shows some of the reflex points on the feet.

By working on the feet it helps to bring balance back to the whole person which helps the body to gently restore its own healthy balance.

What to expect when you come for a treatment

After a short consultation you sit in my reclining chair and relax while I work on your feet.

A lot of people worry that it will tickle but the techniques used in Reflexology do not.

There may be sore tender areas on the feet which is normal and I work gently to release them.

Each treatment lasts about an hour, sometimes more, sometimes less.

After a treatment most people have a deep sense of relaxation.

Everyone reacts differently to reflexology.

Sometimes there may be a feeling of lethagy, nausea or tears, which only lasts a short while.

This is also normal as the treatment has released things which have been stuck.
