Reflexology is based on the theory that each body part is represented on the feet, hands, ears, and face much like a hologram. By pressing or stimulation a specific zone or area , the flow of energy, blood nutrients and nerve impulses are restored and the zone is balancing. The treatment will then begin with some general relaxation techniques, followed by a precise thumb and finger walking technique aimed at applying pressure to every reflex area on the top and bottom of the foot.
Our reflexologist will always work both feet as part of a full treatment. The left foot represents the left side of the body and the right foot represents the right side of the body.
Reflexology is not ticklish as a firm pressure is used. If a particular part of the body is out of balance, the corresponding reflex may feel tender or sore during the treatment. It is important that you let the reflexologist know so that steps may be taken to rectify this discomfort. Generally people describe any areas of tenderness as a ‘sweet pain’ which is both bearable and beneficial. Each treatment session includes a 5 minute pre-interview/treatment preparation and 5 minutes at the end for you to re-dress.
