Reflexology is a gentle, non-intrusive complementary therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself. Reflexologists believe that specific points on the feet and hands correspond to particular areas of the body. Pressure applied to those points can help the natural healing process bringing a state of deep relaxation. Stress can affect many systems of the body with detrimental consequences if it becomes chronic. Reflexology can help to reduce stress by stimulating the body’s central nervous system.
Benefits of reflexology:
Prior to your first treatment it will be a consultation about your health and lifestyle. Please bring with you a list of medications you may be taking. It will be in complete confidence as I keep records clients under key.
During your treatment, you will be reclined in a comfortable chair with your shoes and socks off. I will provide a blanket to keep you warm. You should wear loose, comfortable clothing. I will clean your feet and apply pressure over them. Some areas may feel sensitive indicating an imbalance. Any tenderness felt should be within your comfort level and I should be able to alter my pressure accordingly.
Some clients want to talk during their treatment whereas others enjoy being deeply relaxed and even a few fall asleep! If this happens to you, don’t worry, you are entitled to as it is your pampered moment. After your treatment I will go through some advice needed regarding your lifestyle.
Clients may choose to have a course of treatments, whilst others simply want to enjoy just one for relaxation. Some clients will need more regular treatments than others. Most people may notice a difference after 4-6 treatments although you may need less or more than this. Keep in mind that the effects of reflexology are accumulative.
My treatment room is allocated upstairs in my home, allowing a relaxing and private environment to my clients. There is available parking space at the road by my house and a bus stop opposite if you decide to come by public transport. If for any reason you are unable to come, I can travel to your home within a 10-mile radius of Braintree. I just need a quiet room where to do the treatment. Please note that mobile treatments will incur a £5 charge.
Also, I can treat you at your workplace, in a small private room.
