Bristol Based Reflexologist. There are more than 7,000 nerve endings on each foot. Each of these areas, known as reflex points, corresponds to a specific system, gland, organ or part of the human body.
 

HOW REFLEXOLOGY MAY HELP YOU

Reflexology is a fabulous therapy, it creates space to feel a beautifully blissfulness inside and out,

Being extremely effective and having its principles in the fact that our organs, energy channels, zones/meridians correspond to reflexes in the feet and hands. By stimulating these reflexes gently it addresses the whole body allowing any of these blocked energy channels to flow freely again which can bring relief to a whole range of conditions both chronic and acute, equally it can just be a time of deep relaxation and time out from busy modern day living.  

Being non- invasive it is suitable for all ages, each session is unique and individual however always leaving you with a sense of wholeness and revitalized energy , restoring the body’s balance and therefore good health.


 

What Happens in a Treatment?

Firstly we would look at what you are requiring from the treatment and go through the consultation, this doesn’t take long and isn’t complicated. You can choose whether you would like to lie on the couch or the on the reflexology chair, you stay fully clothed apart from your feet. You can choose if you would like some soothing gentle music on or enjoy the silence, once you are comfortable snug and warm we would start the session, again you can choose if you would like to stay present in the room or as most people drift off into total relaxation.

Benefits of Reflexology

Reducing Stress

Unfortunately stress cannot usually be avoided; we live with it or in it every day in some form or another. When we fail to manage it well, especially, the stress that results from problems, frustrations, overwork or worry, the body’s defences can break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep, tranquil relaxation and peace allowing the nervous system to calm down, helping the body balance itself and allow healing energy to flow smoothly and gently throughout.

 

Improving Circulation

We all know how important it is for blood to flow freely throughout the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells that make up the tissues of the body and removing waste products of metabolism and other toxins. Stress and tension tighten up the cardiovascular system and restricts blood flow in which the circulation becomes sluggish. By reducing stress and tension reflexology allows the miles of cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.

 

Cleaning the Body of Toxins and Impurities

The body has a built in mechanism for self-cleaning, mainly the lymphatic system (lymph nodes) the kidneys, the colon and the skin. If these become blocked or function improperly, toxins and waste matter can build up. By deepening relaxation, reflexology causes all the systems to function more efficiently, including those that eliminate the waste products.

 

Rebalancing

The technical term is ‘homeostasis’ and it means being in a dynamic state of balance. The thousands of cells and areas of the body each function to their own laws and purposes and work closely with each other. If one function or part is out of sync other parts may suffer. Reflexology helps the body to run harmoniously keeping energy levels flowing consciously and unconsciously throughout the body on a physical, emotional and mental level.
