Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying specialised massage techniques to specific reflex points – using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles – the aim of a reflexology treatment is to help restore balance to the body naturally, and improve the client’s general well-being.
What to expect
I will start with a full consultation, asking various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure reflexology is right for you.
For the treatment itself you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks. We will begin with a soothing foot bath to cleanse and warm the feet after which you’ll be able to relax on the treatment couch. I will assess your feet for any tell tale signs of imbalance in the body before applying a fine powder to help provide a free-flowing treatment. As the treatment progresses, a variety of different reflexology techniques will be used to ‘work’ the reflex points on each foot, including a caterpillar-like movement called ‘thumb walking’. The areas treated and pressure applied will be adapted to suit your individual needs.
