Reflexology is a ancient method of activating the healing powers of the body. It is a safe, natural non-invasive complementary therapy. There are ancient texts, illustrations and artefacts dating back to 2330 BC showing us how the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Russians and Egyptians worked on the feet to promote good health.
Today many of these same techniques have been developed into a modern scientific treatment and have called it, Reflexology. What joins the old with the new is the long established principle that there are energy lines that run throughout the body, [stimulating the 7,000 nerve endings in each foot], which correspond to all the organs, glands and structural parts of the body.
A Reflexology Therapist massages your feet in a particular way to work on the crystallised deposits which build up on these nerve endings, [uric acid and calcium crystals], which can inhibit the flow of the energy to the organs. IT IS NOT A PAINFUL TREATMENT. The therapist should be able to know when an area is painful and should be able to still improve the flow of the circulation by holding an area or linking an area to promote the healing process without any pain. Reflexology works as a great preventative and maintenance treatment. Oils or creams are used to massage the feet. After a treatment it is important to drink pleaty of water to enable the body to flush out any toxins in the circulation system. It is advisable to not run around after a treatment but to listen to your body and rest if you need to. This is because it makes you more in touch with your body and you may realise that you are tired and have been resisting the tiredness.
Each THERAPIST is different by bringing their own experience of past clients and courses that they may have attended. I have been practicing Reflexolgy since 1996 and have worked on babies from 6 weeks to a man aged 96 and have found it a wonderful treatment to give to everyone. It has helped my clients for, stress conditions, backache, fertility, pregnancy, labour, endometrosis, gall stones, stroke victims, heart conditions, hip replacements to cancer.
