Reflexology is a deeply relaxing hands-on therapy that involves the application of gentle pressure to different reflex areas on the feet and hands in order to support the body’s own healing and revitalising processes. In working holistically to calm the nervous system, reflexology is a wonderful form of stress-relief that helps to bring about a sense of balance and wellbeing and support the effective functioning of the immune system.
How Does Clinical Reflexology Work?
By applying pressure to reflexes on the feet with thumbs and fingers, a trained Clinical Reflexologist is able to detect any imbalances which may be as a result of stress, illness or injury. Working these reflexes in a very specific way, incorporating meridian points (acupuncture points) and advanced techniques, may initiate a beneficial response in a corresponding area of the body and encourage your body to achieve ‘homeostasis’.
All the systems of the body are worked on through the feet – musculoskeletal, respiratory, digestive, urinary, endocrine, nervous, and lymphatic.
Reflexology Is Deeply Relaxing
Some people even fall asleep during treatment. However you may feel some tenderness in certain areas corresponding to parts of the body which are out of balance. This is usually momentarily as Gaynor will adjust the pressure to work within your tolerance.
Reflexology isn’t ticklish and pressure can range from a feather like touch, ideal for babies and those with extremely sensitive feet, to a firm pressure for individuals who prefer a much deeper treatment.
