FOOT REFLEXOLOGY

With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology may be one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life.



Some of the many benefits:-

  • Helps relaxation
  • Improves mood
  • Aids sleep
  • Helps relieve tension
  • Improves a sense of wellbeing
  • Improves physical conditions
  • Increases energy levels
  • Clears energy pathways
  • Relieves stress
  • Reduces tension
  • Helps the body to heal itself

    Reflexology is a safe, gentle, relaxing complementary therapy which applies pressure to the feet using fingers or thumbs which can aid the body's natural healing process, increase a sense of wellbeing, thus encouraging a natural balance to mind and body which people of all ages can benefit from.

    The theory of reflexology is that the organs, glands, nerves and other parts of the body are connected to reflex points which are located on the soles, tops and sides of the feet. By using a massage and compression technique with thumbs, fingers and hands, these areas are stimulated which can then create a direct response in a specific body area, for example, release of tension, stimulation of blood circulation.



  • Reflexology Lymph Drainage

    REFLEXOLOGY LYMPH DRAINAGE (RLD) is an award winning reflexology technique that isolates and systematically stimulates the lymphatic reflexes of the feet using a problem-specific sequence. The treatment is adapted accordingly to the site of the secondary lymphoedema, focusing on the reflexes to encourage the excess lymph away from the damaged area towards the nearest uncompromised lymphatic drainage area. It can also be used when treating clients with other conditions.





    RLD was developed by Sally Kay BSc (Hons) through clinical practice, using reflexology, while working with cancer patients suffering from all kinds of cancers at all stages of the disease. Many of the patients had been treated for breast cancer and consequently suffered secondary lymphoedema and were having to deal with swollen arms, painful shoulders, underarm swelling as well as weakness and problems during everyday living.

    It became clear to Sally that patients who were suffering with swollen arms and fluid build up under their armpits were benefiting from reflexology treatments. During the course of appointments, some patients were feeling tingling sensations in the affected arm and their clothes were much looser following a treatment and importantly, the swollen arm was feeling far more comfortable.

    During my training, as I suffer from lymphoedema, I received a treatment and was amazed at just how much fluid had been removed from the problem arm and the vast improvement generally in the feeling and weight of the arm. So I know from firsthand experience the difference this treatment can make to a person’s day to day life whilst living with this debilitating condition.
