When was the last time you had your feet rubbed? Whether its after a long day at work, a sporting event or even a day shopping at Meadowhall, a foot rub is the most glorious thing!
But did you know, that by incorporating specialised techniques, a simple foot rub can become a wellbeing boosting treat! Based on an ancient form of Chinese hand and foot therapy, Reflexology is a healing system that will treat the whole body – mind by manipulating specific accupressure areas on your feet (and hands).
The feet are a ‘terminal map’ of the whole body. Applying pressure to certain parts of your feet may bring about a corresponding effect on that area of the body. It is suggested that reflexology works through the nervous system, with peripheral nerves signalling the brain to reduce tension/pain elsewhere in the body. Another theory is that it works similar to acupuncture by helping to remove blocked energy (Qi)
Over the year’s I have helped people with insomnia, relieved migraines, helped to reduce anxiety, treated people through trauma, improve digestion related issues and regualte periods.
Treating couples with fertility problems is extremeley rewarding. Reflexology in pregnancy is fantastic
Reflexology is a fantastic treatment in pregnancy. Many of my clients find that it helps with back pain, oedema, nausea, anxiety and a general sense of wellbeing. Induction of labour can be supported by reflexology too, my most recent client giving birth the day after her treatment 2 days ahead of her hospital induction.
Here is a short sequence you can try on yourself at home to relieve tension and promote relaxation:
