Foot Reflexology is a natural healing art and is the practice of applying precise hand and finger pressure to specific points on the feet to stimulate the body’s own healing system. These points are believed to correspond to specific organs and structures in the body.
Reflexology is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment. Since the feet are the only areas being addressed, there is never any need for removal of clothing. Reflexology has many benefits including:
- Improves the circulation of both blood and lymph
- Balances the body’s system and organs
- Induces deep relaxation
- Helps alleviate insomnia
- Stimulating more than 7,000 nerve endings in the feet
- Provides a more efficient removal of toxins and impurities
What happens during a reflexology treatment?
On your first visit the reflexology practitioner will conduct a full personal consultation. This consultation enables the treatment to be tailored to your specific needs. A reflexology treatment generally lasts for about one hour. You will be invited to lie on a comfortable treatment couch. The reflexologist will then use their hands to apply precise pressure techniques to the feet treating specific points which correspond to all organs and systems of the body. Following treatment, any significant findings will be discussed with you. As the effects of reflexology are cumulative, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments
Imagine that deeply calming and satisfying feeling that you get in your body after an intense workout, where your mind and cells hums with contentment. Now transfer that feeling to your face! The first benefit of Facial Reflexology (which includes deep tissue facial massage) is total relaxation.
Facial reflexology can produce a natural Botox effect by relaxing facial muscles; it can tighten the skin by improving muscle tone; and it can give you a healthy radiant glow that makes you look as good as you feel, and feel as good as you look.
How does facial reflexology work?
Facial Reflexology works on the same principles, but the treatment takes place on your face and head. This non-invasive treatment is based on the theory that areas on your face are connected to areas of your body, and stimulating them improves underlying energy imbalances which promotes wellbeing. The proximity of the face to the brain is key to the effectiveness of this original therapy
Facial Reflexology is not a beauty treatment. However, it does have rather lovely beautifying side effects, quite literally ‘lifting’ the face to make your face feel and look smoother and more toned. It also encourages lymphatic drainage, stimulates the facial nerves, increases blood flow and muscle tone, helps to build up new skin tissue and improves skin tone.
Facial Reflexology aims to help reduce the symptoms and effects of many common ailments including:
- Back Pain
- MS, Menstrual and Hormonal Ailments
- Sleep Disorders
Facial reflexology treatments are very popular during pregnancy and are often used to help promote a shorter and natural labour.
