Reflexology for health and wellness
Regularly resting our body and mind is a cornerstone of good health. Far from being an indulgence, building in time to stop and recharge your batteries means that you're more likely to feel calm, positive and well.
If you generally feel good, reflexology can be beneficial as part of a preventative approach to health, supporting you with your wellbeing goals and helping keep you in optimum health. A treatment soothes your mind, helps to relieve tension held in the body and improves your sense of wellbeing. When you are in this deeply relaxed state, your stress levels fall, your body's natural healing power is promoted and your core vitality is improved.
Perhaps you're feeling a little frazzled and need to get a bit of balance back? Our modern lifestyles can throw a spanner in the works of our wellbeing, and our constant state of busyness puts us under stress. Under stress our body's reserves become depleted and we're less able to fight infections, make repairs or function properly. A bit of regular self-care means that we can avoid being the worst version of ourselves – stressed, snappy and run down – and instead feel more healthy, resilient and calm.
Or maybe you have a diagnosed medical condition or ongoing health niggle, and would like to see if a complementary approach can help? Being unwell can cause anxiety and a reflexology treatment quickly provides some calm and respite. During a treatment I work the reflex points relating to you and the health issue you are experiencing to rebalance any systems of the body which might be out of sync. Reflexology improves blood flow to the areas of the body that need it, promotes the elimination of toxins and can reduce feelings of pain. Reflexology is used by people recovering from an illness or surgery, by those with long term health conditions, and in the NHS, for patients receiving cancer treatment.
