Often mistaken for a foot massage, the ancient art of reflexology accesses these nerve endings which are linked to every organ and system of the body. Through skilful manipulation a reflexologist can help to unblock the flow of energy in organs and rebalance entire system. Reflexology is a complementary therapy, that is, it is used in conjunction with conventional medicine to assist in the body’s recovery from certain diseases and illnesses. It does not diagnose or cure.
It is particularly useful for stress related conditions as it helps to discharge the negative effects of stress and stimulate the body’s own healing. In a busy and unrelenting world, the positive effects of giving ourselves the ‘time out’ required to receive a treatment should not be underestimated
Reflexology is highly recommended during pregnancy as it helps both Mum and Baby to relax and the more relaxed Mums are the better it is for Baby’s growth and development. Baby’s respond very well to the treatment.
Reflexology is a renewal and maintenance programme for the body. It not only aids recovery but helps the body to maintain health. It is not necessary to have a ‘symptom’ to benefit from reflexology. Anita has completed a course with Arch Cancer Support group in using Reflexology to help people suffering and overcoming cancer and now teaches Dip in Reflexology in two colleges and also CPD classes in the centre.
