REFLEXOLOGY 

Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic foot treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a "map" of the body.

As a Reflexologist, Natasha, works on the reflex points with her thumbs and fingers using specialised massage techniques, which are said to help correct imbalances throughout the body, and help to release blocked energy.

The Chinese are said to have used an early form of reflexology healing more than 5000 years ago in their use of pressure therapies. Egyptian tomb artwork also shows foot massage, indicating that working on the feet is an ancient practice, used in many cultures.

Modern reflexology was developed by Eunice D. Ingham in the 1930s and is now a popular complementary therapy.

 

What happens during the treatment?

As it is just the feet that is being worked on, the client remains fully clothed; simply removing shoes and socks.

The client is invited to relax on a reclining chair or couch. The feet are cleansed at the start of the treatment and then a variety of reflexology techniques will be used, adapted to suit each individual needs.

Each foot is divided into five zones, along the length of the feet. These sections are said to correspond to different areas of the body.

Since these zones running through the feet also have corresponding zones in the hands and ears, reflexology can also be carried out in these areas as well.

 

After treatment care:

following a treatment it is advisable to rest as this helps the body's natural healing process. Caffine can have a stimulating effect, so tea, coffee and cola should be avoided if possible, to aid relaxation.

Drink plenty of water or herbal teas over the following few days as this helps flush away toxins. Try to avoid alcohol and tobacco for at least 24 hours.
