We offer different types of reflexology in Southend at The Body Matters. Reflexology treatments are available from our clinic based in Leigh-on-Sea.
It has been reported that up to 75% of illnesses are stress-related. If treated correctly, reflexology can help bring down stress levels.
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.
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.
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.
Reflexology is a non-diagnostic therapy which never claims to cure an individual. Nevertheless, great examples of healing benefits – relief from headaches, aches and pains, insomnia, skin conditions, circulatory, respiratory, digestive and hormonal imbalances have all been documented.
This is truly a holistic experience that you won’t forget.
The aim of reflexology is to create homeostasis, to enable the organs to work together and at their optimum. Evidence suggests that reflexology dates back as early as 4000 BC in China, it was practised by the Ancient Egyptians and Native American tribes.
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.
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.
