Reflexology is a complimentary therapy based on a theory that different points on the feet that correspond with different areas on the body can be manipulated, massaged and stimulated to bring about balance in the body. Reflexology is for those who want to take more responsability for their own healthcare needs and can mitigate the stresses of modern day life. Reflexology is individually tailored to the holistic needs of every individual. It takes into account both the physical and non-physical factors affecting their wellbeing.
Reflexology aims to restore balance naturally. Following treatment, people often report that tension is reduced, they feel more relaxed, sleep is improved, energy levels are increased, moods are improved and an overall sense of wellbeing is achieved.
The restoration of balance and noticable improvements are individual and occur at different timespans. Initial side-effects can include an increased frequency in urinating including bowel movements, feeling emotional or tearful and experiencing flu-like symptoms. These are all positive signs that the body is detoxifying successfully and these symptoms can be alleviated by simply increasing your fluids and avoiding alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours following treatment.
