Clinical Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic, non-invasive complementary therapy that is based on the principle that different points or reflexes on the feet, lower leg and hands correspond to the internal organs and other structures of the body.
 

Following initial consultation, the reflexology treatment will be tailored to your needs. By using specific thumb, finger and linking techniques on the feet or hands working on the reflex points, meridian lines and nerve endings.

Benefits

By stimulating the reflexes in hands and feet, reflexology can reduce stress, improve mood, aid sleep, release tension and help with relaxation bringing relief to a range of both acute and chronic conditions.

Reflexology can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from children through to the elderly.

The deeply relaxing effects of the treatment enable your body to connect with its own natural means of repair, opening up the pathways that the body uses to nourish and recover itself. Blood pressure should lower, cortisol levels drop, heart rate regulates and the central nervous system relaxes. The mind becomes quiet, tension in the body releases and you will start to feel rejuvenated, recharged and restored.

Benefit conditions that typically affect the hands and wrists, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and RSI;

■ Aid recovery from hand injury;

■ Help maintain manual dexterity;

■ Rejuvenate overused or tired hands.

It has been shown to help if the client has an injured foot, an infection – such as athlete’s foot – ticklish feet, or does not like their feet being touched, or is generally uncomfortable with touch.

 

Client aftercare can include working reflex points on hands as opposed to the feet, as the latter are obviously much harder to reach.

Hand Reflexology

Auricular Reflexology

Headache
Reflexology
Lending a Helping Hand

Ear reflexology, otherwise known as auricular reflexology is a unique type of reflexology in its own right.

 

Ears are sensitive and full of nerve endings (over 500), making them an effective area to treat with reflexology.

 

Similar to other types of reflexology, the ear reflex points include points for every body part, organ and gland. Additionally, however, they also contain points for emotional balance, such as points for anti-depression, balance of sadness and worry, and for anti-aggression. Unlike other types of reflexology where right and left reflexology maps represent the right and left sides of the body, each ear has a map of the entire body.

​ 

Ear reflexology was developed in France by Dr. Paul Nogier in the 20th Century, who thought the ear reflexes resembled a baby in fetal position; Traditional Chinese Medicine claims the origins of the medical importance of the ear thousands of years prior, but the mechanism was by cauterization, and only much later by acupuncture. Though the European and Asian ear maps differ, many points have been standardised by the World Health Organization.

​Stimulating ear reflex points encourages the body to heal itself. A common theory as to how ear reflexology works involves nervous system impulses - by working the points, electrical impulses are sent out from the reflex on the ear to the brain, and then messages are relayed to the corresponding body parts or organs, telling them to regulate themselves. Meridian theory proposes that applying pressure to the ear reflexes releases energy blocks along major energy pathways located within the body, thus increasing energy flow to specific areas that need it, and also generally, throughout every body system.

 

Because the ears are so small, and each contains the whole body map, an ear reflexology session can be performed in a relatively short time as compared to other reflexology sessions. For the same reason, ear reflexology is very easy to "add on" to other treatments, making the overall effect of any session more effective. Often your facial massage or foot reflexology may incorporate a shortened treatment on your ears. With specific points that can be used for particular goals, like "muscle relaxant", grounding points, and psychological well-being, clients can benefit in very specific ways. And a few select ear reflexes can be stimulated between sessions, by using small, round ear beads - known as seeds.

Women’s Health Reflexology

NEPIP is an abbreviation for NeuroEndoPsychoImmunoPody. This is an advanced reflexology protocol, which only reflexologists trained to a level 5 mastership can be trained in and perform.

 

NEPIP is a specialised reflexology protocol based on the scientific principle PNI (Psychoneuroimmunology), which was described in the 1980’s. PNI studies how the brain communications with other systems of the body and how emotions can affect our health, for example how stress can have a detrimental affect on our health.

 

NEPIP It is particularly effective in helping people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) and other stress and anxiety. It uses advanced protocols which work on the principle of increasing the flow of communication between the mind, immune, endocrine and nervous systems, all of which are involved with and can also be adversely affected by stress.
