  • Zone Therapy
    Modern reflexology was derived from Zone Therapy developed by Dr William Fitzgerald often referred to as the Father of Reflexology. It was then built on by Eunice Ingham, who developed pressure techniques and mapped out the reflexes on the feet The theory of foot & hand reflexology is that there are 3 distinct horizontal zones defined by the bone structure of the foot/hand. There are also 10 vertical zones which define where the points & areas are located as well as that they are energetically connected via the nerves and circulation

    Ideally have more than 1 session as Reflexology has a cumulative effect. I would recommend at least 3 sessions to be able to see the benefit

  • Are there any contraindications (reasons I should not have Reflexology)?
    If you: are in your first trimester of Pregnancy; have an infectious disease; have a local break on your foot; are requiring surgery; have active DVT)
  • What should I expect from a Reflexology session?
    Before your first session, your Reflexologist will take your full medical history, in order to assess your overall health. You’ll be asked to remove your shoes and socks and to sit or lie down for the treatment. You will relax, while the Reflexologist works your feet using gentle, relaxing movements and some pressure points but overall the treatment should be relaxing The treatment will last 60 minutes.
  • What should I expect after the session?
    You should drink a good amount of water to help flush the toxins from your body. You may experience Headaches over the next 24 hours – that’s the body getting rid of toxins. Drinking more water, will help this. You may experience the ‘healing crisis’ over the next 24-48 hours – this is when a body turns from disease to health and may result in symptoms being exacerbated as the body rids itself of the disease at a faster rate. Once relaxation and cleansing have occurred, the body can heal itself. If you can relax and take it easy for some time after the treatment, then you will benefit from the relaxation and rebalance more.
