Reflexology was first discovered in Ancient Egypt and has been further developed in the US using modern techniques of massage and manipulation of the hands or feet to promote a sense of well-being.
Reflexologists believe that there are specific reflex points in the hands and feet which correspond to all organs, glands and parts of the body. By stimulating these reflex areas, blood circulation in the body improves, nerve impulses are unblocked and the body is relaxed and re-energised.
Reflexology can be used in conjunction with medicine and drugs as an effective way of promoting the body’s natural healing response.
Reflexology treatments also calm and relax the mind providing relief from stress and anxiety.
What to Expect from Your Reflexology Session at Feet First Reflexology Bluntisham
Each treatment takes approximately one hour.
At the initial consultation I will discuss with you your medical history, your lifestyle, diet and how you are feeling physically and emotionally so that I can tailor the treatment to your individual’s needs.
Please be assured that I work to the highest standards of confidentiality.
You will remain fully clothed throughout the treatment except for your shoes and socks which you will remove before relaxing back on a zero gravity chair. On request I will cover you with a soft blanket before gently cleaning your feet and beginning the treatment.
I will apply subtle pressure with my thumbs and fingers to all parts of your feet noting any problem areas. You need not worry about the appearance of your feet. In fact, it helps me to understand more about your current health and well being.
The manipulation of your feet is not ticklish and is usually very pleasant and extremely relaxing. It is possible that you might occasionally feel some slight and fleeting discomfort as I stimulate blood circulation and unblock nerve endings in your feet but this is perfectly normal and is part of the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
At the end of each session you will sit in the chair and I will offer you a chilled glass of mineral water to help flush out toxins that may be released by the treatment. You will have the opportunity to talk with me about the treatment you have received and discuss after care advice. Generally, you will be feeling extremely relaxed and you will be advised to drink plenty of water and get some further rest.
I will give you plenty of time after the treatment so that you leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and rebalanced.
