Reflexology Treatments

FOOT REFLEXOLOGY involves applying gentle-to-moderate pressure to reflex points on the feet, to help stimulate the body’s healing capacity.

Reflexology is based on zone therapy, which suggests that energy moves through our body in lines, which end in our feet, head, face and hands. By applying pressure to these areas in just the right way, these energy lines are cleared of any obstructions, and your body is restored to its full health.

I believe that reflexology is a powerful therapy that can have far-reaching effects on health and well-being.

  • As well as helping to prevent injury, reflexology can also help to balance one’s body when suffering from an illness, to get you back on your feet again.
  • Reflexology reduces stress and establishes relaxation throughout the entire body. While stress is a normal, natural bodily reaction, prolonged stress is the major contributor to eighty percent of all illnesses.
  • Reflexology also helps improve circulation. By stimulating the reflex points, the therapist works to open and clear the pathways of blood flow through the body. This ensures all your body cells are then receiving oxygen, water and nutrients, helping the body to function at its peak.

I use Ingham Method which is a walk-press-release, ‘caterpillar walk’ technique to complete a session. I also incorporate new findings of double thumb walking, which was developed by Kevin and Barbara Kunz. Although some people expect these techniques to be very painful, I always make sure to communicate with clients at all times to adapt the pressure to a level that they feel most comfortable with.

Feet or hands reflexology?

If you have an injury or infection of the feet, or simply don’t feel comfortable having your feet worked on, then not to worry- hand reflexology is always an option. It is an especially relaxing treatment for anyone, but those who do a lot of physical work with their hands will draw the most benefit from it.

FACE REFLEXOLOGY involves stimulating points and reflexology zones on the face and on the cranial lines of the scalp, to bring your body back to its proper balance. This therapy has plenty of benefits, including deep relaxation as endorphin is released throughout your whole body. It also has a rejuvenating and uplifting effect, and many people experience a deep state of rest after the session.

These points on the face are known as “neurovascular points”, and putting pressure on them helps obtain a strong pulse and balance the electric flow of the corresponding meridian. The reflex zones are further stimulated with stretching movements of the skin; through a network of nerve endings, each zone is connected to organs in the body, giving you full-body benefits.

I use a delicate combination of techniques developed by Lone Sorensen and Dien’Cham’ Vietnamese massage to provide the best, most relaxing results imaginable.

These sessions are very gentle, and as such they are suitable for everyone. I only use natural and organic skin care products, so even if you have sensitive skin, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of reflexology. Usually, the sessions involve the use of a cleanser, facial oil or shea butter and a final cream.

 

 

 

Feet or hands reflexology?

Hand reflexology is recommended when there is an injury, an infection of the feet or the patient does not feel comfortable in taking shoes and socks off. Everyone will find this treatment relaxing but in particular people who do a lot of physical work with their hands will find it very beneficial.

The points on the face are called neurovascular points and pressure is used to stimulate these in order to obtain a pulse and to balance the electric flow of the corresponded meridian.
