What is Reflexology?


Ancient art and history suggest that variations of the modern practice of Reflexology existed in all of the ancient healing cultures. Reflexology is based on the premise that there are 'reflexes' in the hands and feet which correspond to all organs, glands and body parts. A reflexologist uses their hands to apply pressure and stimulate these 'reflex points'. This is believed to have an effect on the corresponding body areas, and on an energetic level will encourage the body to heal itself. 


How can Reflexology help you?

The power of Reflexology to relieve stress and initiate the innate self-healing mechanisms of the body has deeply impressed me over the 14 years since I qualified as a practitioner. The effects of a Reflexology treatment range from energising and uplifting to calming and deeply relaxing.

Reflexology may be helpful in many conditions, especially if stress-related. These include:

  •  Digestive disorders such as IBS

  •  Arthritis, Muscle pain/tension & Headaches

  •  Respiratory conditions e.g. Asthma, Sinusitis

  •  Hormonal imbalances e.g. PMS; Infertility

I was trained in Precision Reflexology at the School of Complementary Therapies in Exeter. Precision Reflexology uses a technique called ‘linking’ to enhance the power and definition of a treatment. ‘Linking’ involves gently holding more than one specific reflex point at the same time; this increases the rebalancing effect on the body’s energy. Many patients comment on sensations of vibration or unusual energy within specific parts of their body during ‘linking’.
