Reflexology


Reflexology AylesburyReflexology is a holistic therapy that uses the application of pressure to the various zones of the foot to encourage better overall health. The origins of this therapy go back thousands of years. It is said that each area of the body is represented by an area on the foot; by carefully massaging and manipulating these smaller areas, health can be improved elsewhere in the body.

When carrying out a treatment, the therapist only uses their hands. Just the foot that is being worked on is exposed and clients will find that they are completely rested and relaxed, both during and after the treatment. Through reflexology treatments, therapists are able to help relieve the symptoms of stress, in much the same way that a full body massage does. Stress can have a devastating effect on both the mind and the body in the long-term and treatments such as reflexology can do much to help.

Relax with reflexology Aylesbury

While Reflexology is ideal for those who have particular health concerns, it is also beneficial for those who have no specific symptoms to deal with. Those who are healthy will find Reflexology relaxing and may have very little or even no reaction to the treatment, while those who have health concerns may notice that they experience a tingling sensation in the foot or feel ‘bruised’ in the area concerned. When undergoing Reflexology, Aylesbury therapists advise that there should be no pain experienced during the treatment and they will be able to adjust the pressure to suit each individual client.

It should be noted that reflexology therapists at the centre are not qualified to make a medical diagnosis, although the information that they gather may be passed to a doctor and help in their diagnosis. There is a wide range of conditions that are known to benefit from a reflexology treatment and these include PMS, sciatica and even constipation.

When clients come for reflexology in Aylesbury, therapists will need to know if they are suffering from any conditions, as there are some circumstances in which they may not be able to provide the treatment. Those who have a fever, for example, or thrombosis, may be advised to reconsider. Those who are in the early stages of pregnancy or about to undergo surgery will not be able to have the treatment either. Ensure that the therapist knows as much as possible about your health before the treatment begins, so that a proper assessment can be carried out.

The professional therapist does not rely on external aids when treating a client and only the human hand is used. In fact it only requires the client’s feet to be exposed and even then the resting foot is covered whilst its fellow is treated.

One of the wonders of Reflexology is that it can bring about the same sensations of restfulness and relaxation that a full body massage can produce, therefore it can be most beneficial in the treatment of stress.

As the therapist traces his/her way through the reflexes of the feet the client with no particular problem or disorder will relax and show little or no reaction. Those people with a disorder will react by experiencing sensitivity in forms ranging from a pricking sensation which can feel as though the therapists’ nail is too long to one of pressure being applied to a bruise. Reflexology though should never really hurt. The therapist should adjust the pressure to suit each individual foot.

The Reflexologist does not claim to make a medical diagnosis but rather the therapist can make an assessment from which a medical doctor may be able to extract information – information which may assist him/her in a medical diagnosis.

Most people can benefit from Reflexology and the conditions known to react favourably are numerous and varied from sinusitis to sciatica, constipation and P.M.S.

Few contra-indications exist with Reflexology although treatment would not be given in some instances for example in cases of fever, thrombosis, gangrene or acute infection or disease. Other circumstances might include when surgery is indicated, pregnancy in first Trimester and at no stage of an unstable pregnancy.

No scientific evidence exists as to how Reflexology works or how it can produce such excellent results and yet a considerable amount of evidence exists to prove that it does work.
