Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the belief that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which are believed to correspond to all organs and parts of the body. Reflexology works on an individual basis and may alleviate and improve symptoms such as everyday stress and tension.
During a your reflexology session the reflexologist will take a detailed medical history. Sessions are usually performed in a comfortable chair or couch. You will be asked to remove footwear and socks but you won't have to remove any other clothing. Your reflexologist will make a visual and tactile examination of your feet before beginning the precise reflexology massage movements. The particular types of movements involved require the application of an appropriate pressure using the thumb and fingers.
Reflexology can be a wonderfully relaxing experience where you can take time out from everyday pressures.
Your therapists expert touch will help you relax which can help improve mood, aid sleep and relieve tension.
The result is an overall sense of well being.
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 your therapist know so they can note areas of tenderness and re-work these areas using different reflexology techniques.
