Reflexology is an alternative medical practice that involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet and hands that correspond to various areas of the body. This therapeutic technique can help balance and stimulate the body's energy, boost the immune system, and enhance circulation, thereby promoting the body's natural healing abilities.

Originating in ancient China over 5000 years ago, reflexology has a rich history. Evidence of its early practice is seen in a wall painting in an Egyptian tomb, dated to 2000 BC, depicting individuals rubbing hands and feet.

Modern reflexology owes much to Eunice Ingham, a physiotherapist who developed the practice further in the 20th century, laying the foundations for contemporary reflexology techniques.

What is reflexology?

«

Reflexology is an alternative medical practice that involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet and hands, which correspond to different areas of the body. This practice helps balance and stimulate the body's energy, enhancing its natural healing processes.

How does reflexology work?

«

Reflexology works by targeting reflex points on the feet and hands that are connected to various organs and systems within the body. By applying pressure to these points, reflexology promotes circulation, reduces stress, and supports the body's ability to heal itself.

What conditions can reflexology help with?

«

Reflexology can help alleviate a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain (such as back pain, sciatica, and migraines), acute pain (such as foot pain and headaches), stress, anxiety, and sinus problems. It is also beneficial for overall well-being.

Is reflexology safe?

«

Yes, reflexology is a safe and non-invasive therapy. It can be safely practiced on individuals of all ages, from children to the elderly. However, it's important to inform your reflexologist of any medical conditions or concerns before starting treatment.

How many sessions will I need?

«

The number of sessions required can vary depending on the individual's specific condition and response to treatment. Some people may experience relief after just one session, while others might need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. Your reflexologist will help you develop a personalised treatment plan.

What can I expect during treatment?

«

During a reflexology session, you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks. You will then lie down comfortably while the reflexologist applies pressure to specific points on your feet and/or hands. The session is typically relaxing and can last between 30 to 60 minutes.

Can reflexology be combined with other treatments?

«

Yes, reflexology can be effectively combined with other treatments such as massage therapy, acupuncture, or traditional medical treatments. Combining therapies can enhance the overall effectiveness and provide comprehensive relief from various ailments.

Is reflexology the same as a foot massage?

«

While reflexology involves massaging the feet, it is different from a typical foot massage. Reflexology focuses on specific reflex points that correspond to different parts of the body, whereas a foot massage generally aims to relax the muscles and improve circulation in the feet. Reflexology provides more targeted therapeutic benefits.
