Reflexology is a deeply relaxing, safe complimentary therapy suitable for the whole family throughout every stage of life. It is the technique of applying controlled pressure to reflex points on the feet and hands that correspond to organs, glands and skeletal structures within the body to bring about a state of deep relaxation and stimulate the body’s own healing process.
Reflexology does not aim to diagnose or cure illness but rather to promote the body’s powerful self-healing capability and improve physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. It helps us return to a state of natural balance.
Facial Reflexology is based on the same principles of foot and hand reflexology which works by stimulating reflex points that correspond to different organs and body systems. The stimulation on the face improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow, which helps with the removal of toxins. Facial Reflexology can really help with muscle tension and jaw clenching. Your face should feel and look smoother, more lifted and toned, with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
What can Reflexology do for me?
Everyone can benefit from babies to the elderly. Reflexology is a safe, natural therapy that can be particularly beneficial for those looking to combat the effects of stress. It can help before and after surgery to minimise trauma to the body and help recovery time.
Reflexology is greatly beneficial before, during and after pregnancy. Continued treatment after birth could help encourage a speedy recovery and most importantly, some much needed time out for a new mum. Positive results have been achieved for people with learning disabilities, aggressive behaviour and hyperactivity. Children and babies love it.
Following a course of treatments clients often remark that they feel better and some report that an ailment has disappeared. The holistic nature of reflexology benefits the whole body, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Reflexology can help alleviate the following:
Stress related issues
Sports injuries & pain
Pregnancy & fertility related issues
Facial reflexology helps to relieve blocked sinuses and congestion and also can relieve tension in the head and body. The treatment boosts your immune system and brings a general feeling of relaxation and calm. Your face should also look smoother, more lifted and toned. I apply gentle pressure on different reflex points on the face using a range of massage and natural facelift techniques. You should find this experience to be very relaxing and may even drop off to sleep!
