And what can you expect from your appointment? Well, we are here to answer those questions. This is our expert guide to reflexology.
So, what is reflexology?
Reflexology is a technique of applying pressure to pressure points across your feet. These different pressure points can target different areas, muscles and organs. Our reflexology practitioners are fully trained in recognizing these points, and targeting them to relieve stress, tension and pressure throughout the body.
What does reflexology help with?
Reflexology does a lot more than just relaxing the body and helping you feel calm and peaceful. It is also an effective treatment method, that can help with:
- trapped nerve pain
- back pain
- muscle pain
- sports injuries
- anxiety and depression
- sleeping problems
- poor circulation
- digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome
Preparing for a reflexology appointment
There isnt anything you really need to do to prepare for a reflexology appointment.
However, as a reflexologist will be targeting your feet, many people make sure that their feet are clean and fresh ready for the appointment.
In addition, as reflexology can improve blood and nutrient flow, some people make sure to drink plenty of water before the appointment to help hydrate areas of the body throughout the treatment.
Finally, before booking your appointment you should be aware that after the treatment you may feel like sleeping or relaxing. Its often a good idea to make sure the appointment is after work hours, so that you can truly benefit from the relaxing and calming effects of the reflexology treatment.
