Where does Reflexology come from and what is it?
Reflexology traces its roots back to ancient Egypt, but was only introduced in the West in the early 20th century. It is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. A modern day reflexologist applies pressure to these points to identify areas of the body that aren’t working properly and to stimulate the nerve endings that correspond to their actual function.
Does Reflexology diagnose?
No, Reflexology identifies where an imbalance, stress and tension are located in the body. While this can be helpful to the diagnosis process, Reflexologists are not health care providers and are legally not allowed to diagnose.
What can Reflexology help me with?
Reflexology is used primarily to relieve stress and tension and produce deep therapeutic relaxation. As a lot of medical ailments can be linked to the nervous system and physical tension. By reducing stress and tension, Reflexology may improve blood and lymph circulation, strengthening the functioning of the immune system and calming the nervous system. Therefor facilitating the body’s natural healing processes and thereby enhancing the body’s health and vitality.
How will I feel after a Reflexology treatment?
It is useful to give feedback to the reflexologist as this may show the response of your body to treatment. This in turn might help the reflexologist to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs. After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very noticeable way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation; however, sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is usually transitory and reflexologists believe that it is part of the healing process
I really don’t believe in Reflexology, will it still work for me?
Absolutely, Reflexology relieves stress and tension, deeply relaxes people independent of their beliefs about it. Many sceptical people have become strong advocates for Reflexology after experiencing it. Why not try it and find out for yourself if it is effective.
Facial reflexology works on the same principle as foot reflexology, the body is mapped on the face and by applying pressure to precise reflexes, it is believed to promote relaxation and restore balance within the body just like Reflexology for the feet.
Why choose Facial Reflexology?
Besides the deeply relaxing, therapeutic nature of facial reflexology, it also has some unique benefits over all other reflexology treatments. The face naturally holds tension and emotions and as the ageing process develops, the skin can become looser and lines may develop on the forehead, eyes and mouth area. Environmental pollutants and lifestyle choices can leave the skin with a dull or reddened complexion. Stimulating specific reflex points on the face, using a specialised technique can boost the circulation and stimulate the production of collagen. The result is a glowing, more youthful complexion from a non-invasive natural treatment.
Can I have Facial Reflexology if I have had fillers or Botox?
Absolutely, however I would recommend waiting at least 3 weeks after fillers and 3 months after Botox. Clients having undergone surgical facelift would be advised to wait at least 3 months before facial reflexology.
