Reflexology Essex

What is reflexology?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves the application of pressure to specific points on the feet, hands, or ears to promote relaxation and overall well-being. It is based on the concept that these points, often referred to as reflex points, correspond to different organs, glands, and parts of the body. The practice of reflexology is rooted in the belief that stimulating these reflex points can help improve circulation, relieve tension, and support the body's natural healing processes. Evidence suggests that reflexology dates back as early as 4000 BC in China, it was practised by the Ancient Egyptians and Native American tribes.

What can reflexology help with?

Reflexology is a non-diagnostic therapy that never claims to cure an individual. Nevertheless, great examples of healing benefits – relief from headaches, aches and pains, insomnia, skin conditions, and circulatory, respiratory, digestive and hormonal imbalances have all been documented. Traditionally, Reflexology has been used to address physical concerns in the body (headaches, insomnia, stress, PMS, IBS, sore feet) by palpitating reflexes. Reflexes are areas on the feet that correspond to all parts of the body. This is truly a holistic experience that you won’t forget.

What is the aim of reflexology?

The aim of reflexology is to create homeostasis, to enable the organs to work together and at their optimum. It has been reported that up to 75% of illnesses are stress-related. If treated correctly, reflexology can help bring down stress levels.

How does reflexology work?

Using a holistic, caring approach and with a firm, yet gentle touch; a reflexologist can positively influence all the body’s systems through the nerve endings, or ‘reflex’ areas of the feet and lower legs (less often the hands and ears.) By re-opening closed nervous system energy channels it helps to correct imbalances that have developed in the tissues and encourages a more relaxed physical and mental state. A more relaxed state will promote the right conditions in the body for self-healing.

Is reflexology painful?

Pressure applied during a session can vary from gentle to firm, but it should not cause discomfort or pain. Clients can communicate their comfort level with the therapist during the session.

How long does a reflexology session last?

One of the nice things about reflexology, unlike orthodox medicine, is that it takes just an hour to create a relaxing state so that the client can begin their healing process. After the session, every client leaves the room feeling refreshed, revitalised, relaxed and at peace.

How often should I have reflexology sessions?

The frequency of reflexology sessions can vary based on individual needs and goals. Some people may benefit from regular sessions, such as weekly or monthly, while others may choose to have occasional sessions for relaxation or symptom relief.

How does reflexology make you feel?

Often, and instinctively the client, after their first Reflexology session, say that they feel that something "feels right for a change" and "as it should be". In some cases, immediate relief from their issues is experienced. There is often a sense of relief, of anxieties ebbing away, and of a warm, nurturing feeling that doesn’t invade their personal space.

What is spiritual reflexology?

Spiritual reflexology is the application of massage techniques to address spiritual aspects of who we are. Reflexology is an excellent tool for this task as it addresses all the glands, organs, body parts and vital fluids in the body.
