Reflexology to restore balance
Reflexology is a complimentary therapy that has its roots in many ancient civilizations including Egypt, India and China It is based on the principle that the anatomy of the body is reflected in reflex zones on the feet. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is in a state of ‘imbalance’, and vital energy pathways zones are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
These blockages are usually indicated on the feet as little nodules or grainy deposits felt just underneath the skin. The deposits are made up of uric acid and excess calcium, which build up in the body when the metabolism is not working as effectively as it could be.
The deposits can be broken down by the Reflexology technique which is not a massage but involves small rhythmic pressures. The deposits are then carried by the blood and lymph to be eliminated from the body.
Reflexology is a safe effective treatment for almost everyone. Apart from being a highly relaxing therapy to receive, it has been shown to benefit many common ailments and can promote a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
- Back pain
- Migraine headaches
- Sleep disorders
- Hormonal imbalances
- Digestive disorders
- Stress and anxiety related conditions
- Reduce and relieve ailments associated with pregnancy
- Increase energy levels
- Increase body’s endorphin levels (natural painkillers)
It is recommended that reflexology be avoided during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, while the body is adjusting to hormonal changes. After this time expectant mothers can find reflexology extremely helpful and safe in symptoms associated with pregnancy. (Morning sickness, backache, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, water retention and cramps)
A course of 4-6 treatments is highly recommended if you have not experienced reflexology before. It is best if these are taken one a week, and once the course is completed, as and when a treatment is needed. The reason for this is that the body needs time to respond to the treatment and to return to a balanced state.
