REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is the massage of the reflex points in the hands or feet to bring about a state of balance in the body.

A reflex is an involuntary response to a stimulus such as reflexology pressure.  The reflex action of an organ is caused by the electrical impulses initiated by a stimulus.

Each organ in the body uses channels of energy to pass electrical impulses.  These channels of energy reach various points in the foot.  Reflexology ensures there is no congestion and therefore allowing energy pathways to be clear so that corresponding parts work efficiently.

As there are subtle connections between the points in the feet and various body parts, it is often common for symptoms of a condition to be recognised on the feet before the condition shows in the rest of the body.  An imbalance in the system will show manifestations in the feet and conversely mistreatment to the feet will be reflected on the corresponding body part.  Sceptical?  If you know of any heavy smokers, have a look at their feet.  They will more than likely have yellow patches of hard skin in the lung areas of the feet (fleshy part just under the middle three toes).  And it's not a surprise to find those who wear high heels regularly have postural/back problems...

 

Benefits of reflexology:

Improves circulation

Revitalises energy

Balances whole body system

Cleanses the body of toxins

Preventative health care

Reduces stress

Induces feeling of well being

Stimulates creativity and productivity

 

After a treatment, a 'healing crisis' may occur.  This is normal and is a good sign that the treatment is working and clearing the body.  Most people only experience mild symptoms.   Some of the effects may be feeling relaxed, sleepiness, headache, nausea, coldness, excessive mucous in nose or sinuses, thirstiness, raised temperature, excessive energy, cloudy urine, diarrhoea.  Afterwards, the benefits are positive.

 

Aftercare:

Drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins - avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking.

Rest after treatment - avoid stimulating exercise.

Avoid driving as drowsiness may occur.

Do not have aromatherapy treatment on the same day as the two treatments combined may be too much for the body.

No heavy meal for 2-3 hours - let the body adjust.

Put on loose footwear for the feet to relax.

 

Recommended treatment plan:

Course of once weekly treatments for 4-6 weeks recommended for acute conditions, then monthly maintenance.

 

Only grapeseed oil is used as this treatment.
