“I thought reflexology was just a foot rub but now I am a convert. I have a stressful job in live TV studio work, and after my reflexology session I felt relaxed but still alert, and better in myself.”
– Dean, TV presenter
Reflexology for pain relief
Headaches and migraines
If you are suffering with headaches, the practitioner would focus on stimulating the reflex points of the thumb and big toe (corresponding to the head and neck) in order to shift energy and release any blockages in the nervous system. With this treatment, it can take approximately 20 minutes for your headache to disappear without the use of medication.
Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis
In cases such as Arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis, reflexology does not get rid of these conditions. What it does do is provide effective pain relief and the ability to make the symptoms more manageable.
“I am a painter and was having trouble working because of the pain in my hands. Natasha was fantastic and I have no hesitation in recommending her”
– Maggie, painter
Reflexology for relaxation from stress and anxiety
If you suffer from stress or anxiety, your practitioner will work on certain reflexes on the hands and feet (relating to the hormonal system) to encourage relaxation. Incorporated within this treatment are also breathing exercises and some self-help practical techniques to take away as homework.
“I was very stressed. Natasha knew just how to relax me. After my treatments I felt calm, reassured, and on top of the world. It’s the best thing I’ve tried”
– Jill, Homemaker
Reflexology for Fertility
Are you looking for support and advice on how to boost your fertility or improve your sexual health? Stress and anxiety can interfere with fertility and sexual health, so by addressing these problems reflexology can improve your chances of falling pregnant.
Reflexology for Pregnancy
Are you pregnant and looking for help and support during your pregnancy? Perhaps you are a little stressed or overdue and are in need of some relaxation? Do you struggle with morning sickness, constipation, swollen ankles, pelvic pain or headaches associated with pregnancy?
Please note that reflexology complements the work of a midwife. It is advisable to seek permission from your midwife before commencing reflexology treatments if you have serious conditions.
There is often a misconception that reflexology can be used to bring on labour but this is not strictly true. The benefit of a reflexology treatment is that it enables you to relax thereby increasing oxytocin which is essential for the baby to come.
“It was such a blessing having Natasha work on my feet when I was pregnant. I felt totally rejuvenated afterwards”
– Jean, designer and mother
What can I expect in my first reflexology session?
The reflexologist will carry out an initial consultation to establish what the presenting problems are. You will be asked whether you’ve had reflexology treatments in the past and what you would like to get from the treatment. From this, a treatment will then be specifically tailored to suit your individual needs and requirements.
Reflexology is more than just a foot massage and the practitioner will explain that there may be some discomfort during the treatment due to sensitive areas that require working on. However, the treatment starts off by softly manipulating the areas of the feet or hands followed with more firm pressure being applied.
How does reflexology work?
In the words of the field’s pioneer Eunice D. Ingham: “Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflexes in the feet relative to each and every organ and all parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way”.
