Reflexology works on the reflex points of the feet and can help stress related problems, such as poor sleep patterns, headaches and anxiety. Research indicates that treatment boosts the body's immune system and may improve digestive problems, muscle pain, sinus pain and bring about a general sense of well-being. Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing treatment and clients usually benefit from becoming deeply rested and rejuvenated following their treatment.
During treatment, you will remain fully clothed while sitting or reclining on a couch with socks off so we can work on your feet and ankles. We will start with a foot massage and during the session, we will use a variety of reflexology techniques, with an emphasis on working on the parts of the feet appropriate to areas discussed during the consultation. The session ends with more foot massage.
Complementary therapies are now being accepted by medical professionals worldwide. Some of them prescribe reflexology treatment along with more conventional treatments to encourage the recovery process.
Initial reflexology appointments will usually take approximately one hour and 15 minutes when Joy will complete a consultation form together with you and have a chat about any particular issues you would like to address. Subsequent treatments will normally be 45 minutes to an hour.
Massage not only eases aches and pains in muscles and joints, it improves circulation and help boost the body's immune system - this is turn helps reduce stress levels and anxiety.
This treatment would typically involve a back, neck and shoulder massage followed by any combination of head / foot massage, arms, legs and hands. You may wish to guide the treatment on the day in order to address a particular problem area.
