Reflexology

reflexology The healing art of Reflexology has its roots in ancient civilisations such as China, Egypt, Primitive Africa and the native Indian tribes of America.

It is a precisely defined form of treatment based on the principle that the anatomy of the body is reflected in miniature on reflex zones on the feet and hands. By using specific pressure techniques on these reflex areas, healing may be initiated and encouraged in the corresponding area of the body.

The hands and feet share similar reflex points and all of the energy zones, so although the reflexes of the feet are generally more sensitive to touch, the hands can be treated where there is injury or any infection present in the feet.

There is some suggestion that Reflexolgy may aid:

  • Relief from stress and tension
  • Stimulation of the body's own healing mechanisms
  • Improved circulation
  • Promotion of more efficient elimination of waste products and toxins from the body
  • A deep sense of well-being
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • It is a holistic therapy, which may help the body to achieve its own balance, and therefore function more effectively

Who can be helped by Reflexology?

Most people can benefit from reflexology treatment, and there is no minimum or maximum age limit. Some of the many conditions that may be helped by this therapy include digestive problems, muscular and joint pain, stress-related conditions, sleep disorders, breathing disorders and hormonal imbalances. It may also be useful in preparation for, and during pregnancy (click here for Maternity Reflexology). Alternatively, you may wish to just spoil yourself with a one-off treatment to de-stress and re-balance yourself.

My reflexology and complementary therapy practice is based in Crawley, near the town centre. Crawley Down, Horley, Horsham, Felbridge and East Grinstead are all within approximately 20 minutes driving distance. Forest Row is 30 minutes driving distance (via Sharpthorne/Turners Hill/Three Bridges). Please call for directions.

What happens during a reflexology treatment?

At your first appointment you will be asked questions about your health and lifestyle*. It is important for me to have an understanding of all factors that may be affecting your health so that I can tailor the treatment specifically to your needs.

Treatment takes place on a professional couch, for optimum relaxation and comfort. You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and your feet will be wiped over with a refreshing solution, and then examined before you receive a relaxing foot massage. Then treatment begins, which involves the application of specific pressure over all the reflex areas of the foot, which is increased or decreased according to what is found. The initial consultation takes about 1½ hours, and follow-up treatments about 1 hour.
