Reflexology is a natural, holistic therapy, which is carried out on the feet or hands. Reflexology is used to promote a feeling of well being and is suitable for people of all ages.
Reflexology is based on the idea that the feet are 'mini maps' of the body and that there are points on the feet and hands, which relate to the vital organs, glands or structures of the body. For example, the big toe represents the head and at the base of the big toe is point for the neck.
When the feet worked on during a treatment, the body will start to function more efficiently and effectively and the person having the treatment will feel more physically and mentally relaxed
Who Can Reflexology Help?
Reflexology is suitable for men and women of all ages and also children and babies. Reflexology is as effective on a young baby as it is on an elderly person; the only difference is the length of the treatment and the pressure used.
Claire has treated clients who are going through a bereavement, feeling the strain of raising a family, needing to get a better work/life balance or who are elderly and wish to stay keep as well as they can.
Please note that reflexology is also for the fit and healthy! You don't need to have a health concern to come along for a reflexology treatment.
Regular sessions can be used as part of your healthy living regime, alongside; exercise, eating healthily, drinking plenty of water, having a good work/life balance and drinking in moderation.
Reflexology will proactively help maintain your good health, help you relax, and help keep colds or 'bugs' at bay. Many clients come in once every 4-6 weeks in these situations.
