Reflexology is a safe, natural complementary therapy.  Reflexology is a way of relaxing your mind and body, and may improve or alleviate your stress or tension.

During a reflexology session, gentle pressure will be applied to reflex areas on your feet, which are believed to correspond to all the organs and parts of your body.

This will bring you a state of deep relaxation and aims to improve your mood, aid sleep and relieve tension giving you a sense of balance and well-being, encouraging your body to heal itself.

What conditions might reflexology aid?

Reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe, however reflexology may be helpful to support people suffering from a wide range of issues including:

  • Stress related conditions
  • Back pain
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Headaches
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fertility issues 
  • Skin disorders
  • Blood sugar disorders
  • Sleep disorders
  • Pregnancy and Postnatal recovery

It is estimated that 35% of work-related ill health in 2015 was stress induced.  Reflexology treats ‘the whole person’ and not just any current symptoms you may be experiencing and many people report an enhanced sense of overall well-being as well as an improvement in their condition.

After having completed a course of reflexology treatments for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.

What is the Theory of Reflexology?

The overall principal of reflexology is that energy runs up and down between all parts of your body. If your body is in a state of imbalance due to illness, injury or stress, your vital energy channels may become blocked and your body may not be in balance.  The theory is  that different points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body.

Reflexology aims to open up the bodies energy pathways, boosting the immune system, clearing toxins, improving circulation and encouraging the release of endorphin’s. It encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance, facilitating healing and optimal health.

Whilst the origins of reflexology date back to Ancient Egypt, modern reflexology was developed in the 1930’s by Eunice Ingham. She developed maps of the entire body on the feet, observing that congestion or tension in any part of the foot is mirrored in the corresponding part of the body. The right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and the left foot corresponds to the left side of the body.

When shouldn’t a treatment be given?

It is not advisable to have treatment if you have a high fever or an infectious disease, suffer from Deep Vein Thrombosis, or varicose veins around your feet, or you have gangrene.  Any maternity complication should also be discussed prior to booking a treatment.

If you are unsure please let me know about any medical condition you have during our consultation so I can adapt your treatment if necessary.

"Jo offers a great antidote to the stresses of everyday life. The treatment always has a noticeable healing effect. The feeling of deep relaxation and well-being lasts much longer than the session itself."

"I can’t stress enough how effective reflexology has been on improving my backache and stress levels. It was painful and stiff every day. Now after seeing Jo, I hardly have any pain. I’m also more relaxed, less stressed and more in tune with my body."

“Treatments with Jo were always a treat. They were always so relaxing, and I always felt uplifted and refreshed afterwards. They also helped with difficulty in sleeping, swollen ankles, stress and back pain."
