WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology is a natural complementary therapy which can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and well-being. Reflexology rests on the ancient Chinese belief in Qi or “vital energy”. According to this belief qi flows through each person and when a person is ill or feels stressed their body blocks the qi flow.
Our Reflexology Therapy is delivered by Amanda Donohoe.
Amanda holds a diploma in Practitioner’s Reflexology and a diploma in Colour Reflexology. Amanda is also a Reiki Practitioner and is a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
Reflexology uses gentle pressure on specific points along the feet which correspond to organs and the energy systems which run along pathways within the body. The treatment is deeply relaxing and aims to help the body to restore its balance naturally by stimulating and unblocking areas of stuck energy within the body.
WHAT IS THE MAIN GOAL?
To help clients through reflexology to stimulate the body into healing of itself by improving circulation, reducing stress, reducing pain, improving digestion and lymphatic flow and restoring natural balance to all the systems within the body.
Reflexology is a therapy that can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care and everyone in between.
While reflexology is an extremely safe, non-invasive healing practice, clients with foot fractures, unhealed wounds on the feet, active gout, thrombosis or fungal infections should avoid reflexology.
For those new to reflexology weekly sessions for 4 to 6 weeks are a good start after which monthly visits should be sufficient for overall wellbeing and improved sleep.
The initial treatment with consultation takes approximately ~ 75mins
Any follow up treatment will take approximately ~ 60mins
One benefit of reflexology is that it allows time and space where one can focus purely on yourself and your growing baby. We advise however that you wait until you are 16 weeks pregnant or more and have had your first scan before starting your maternity reflexology treatment.
These days young people are now under more pressure than ever to perform well and achieve. This places their physical, mental and emotional health under constant duress so it is essential that they are able to find ways to either release stress or reduce anxiety. Reflexology is the perfect antidote to stress and can help improve cognitive function.
We have a dedicated professional, therapeutic counselling team of qualified therapists on site. They are experienced, understanding, highly skilled and ready to help.
