What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a well established hands-on therapy that,as far as we know, was first practised in China, Egypt and India more than 6000 years ago.
What happens in a session?
The reflexologist uses thumb and finger pressure on reflex areas of both feet that correspond to specific organs and parts of the body. Using a unique method of thumb and finger pressure, the practitioner assists the body in achieving a balanced state of working. many clients fall into a state of deep relaxation during session while others prefer to talk. The direction of movement in the body is always towards balance and the practitioner is acting as a catalyst within this natural process.
Is it safe for everyone?
Yes, reflexology is recognised by many doctors, consultants and other healthcare professionals as a completely safe therapy which can be received by everyone, including older people, babies, children and pregnant women. Keith works as a reflexologist in a NHS hospital treating patients with a variety of physical and mental health issues.
Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe medication or treat specific medical conditions. They treat the while body. Reflexology is complementary to alopathic medicine, not a replacement for it.
How many sessions will I need?
Clients usually report a greater sense of wellbeing and relaxation after a single session. For certain conditions, however, Keith recommends a course of treatments and discounted packages are available.
