Applied to pressure points on the feet that correspond to the individual parts of the body. It aims to restore balance and harmony by increasing the circulation to the internal organs and glands through the feet. By working on the reflexes homeostasis can be achieved by un-blocking energy that stagnates in the feet.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy which uses distinct markers on the foot to promote healing throughout the whole body.
How can reflexology help me?
Reflexology is a calming and de-stressing treatment that can be used to treat a wide number of conditions. The gentle approach used by your therapist stimulates your body to self heal and restore normal internal balance.
Reflexology does not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe, but has beneficial effects in combatting:
Low Back Ache
Wear and Tear
Stress and Anxiety
What happens during Reflexology?
A brief consultation with your therapist will ascertain any specific health needs you have and enable you to ask specific questions in relation to reflexology.
The reflexologist will then stimulate your feet by applying direct pressure to the soles of your feet in a relaxing and calming manner.
A treatment session usually lasts for about one hour. A course of treatment may be recommended depending on your body’s needs.
Are there any side effects to reflexology?
After your reflexology session you may notice a sense of relaxation and well being. Some patients report an initial feeling of tiredness that is quickly relieved by a great nights sleep. It is important that you update your therapist with your response to treatment as this feedback is greatly beneficial.
Reflexology is suitable for almost everyone. Its gentle approach to healing makes it a viable treatment for the young and elderly alike. A course of treatment is beneficial for acute and chronic conditions, and many of our patients return for regular ‘top-up’ or maintenance appointments.
With stress one of the most common and debilitating conditions affecting the population today, it is important that we take control of our own health. Reflexology fights against the damaging effects of stress and the many conditions that often follow exposure to high levels of anxiety.
After meeting your therapist you will be taken through a detailed consultation about your presenting complaint, recent and past medical history and general lifestyle questions. A physical examination of the face, tongue, hair, eyes etc is often useful to indicate your overall wellbeing.
Your therapist will then develop a treatment program tailored to your specific condition and will go through this with you. The first consultation is often a little longer than any follow up appointments that you may require. Expect your initial treatment to be approx 90 minutes, with follow up appointments around 60 mins.
“I’m suffering from back pain for a number of years and more recently from tendonitis in both shoulders. A friend of mine recommended to see Soraya working as osteopath at Cambridge Complementary Health. Soraya helped me reducing the pain significantly by using manual treatment and gave helpful advice about how to stretch and loosen muscles. I would recommend her to other people with back and neck problems. She’s taken the time to listen to your problems carefully to get an idea about the whole picture of the problem. If I will need osteopathic help again I’d contact her.”
“I went to Cambridge Complementary Health for osteopathy for my neck and back. Service and treatment were both excellent. I saw Soriah the osteopath and she was very understanding and experienced. I had already tried chiropractic and physiotherapy, neither of which did the trick. She also gave great advice on continuing to build my fitness to avoid future problems. Thoroughly recommend!”
“First class treatment by all staff, admin and treatment alike. I recommended husband to Jack who has done a wonderful job. Definitely keep going for maintenance treatments as the original problem has completely cleared up thanks to not only the treatment but advice for how to keep it from not coming back in the form of exercises and posture. Many many thanks.”
