Reflexology is a gentle, holistic therapy based on the principle that certain parts of the body reflect other parts of the body. These points of reflection, Reflex points, can be found throughout the body; in the feet, hands, ears, shins, and face, among others. A reflexology treatment is the systematic application of pressure to these points, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process. The body starts progressively clearing blockages, re-establishing energy flows and balancing itself, resulting in better health. Subtle yet powerful, reflexology is becoming increasingly popular in the world of complementary therapies. It is one of the few natural therapies to be adopted by health professionals and used in a medical setting, particularly in the areas of sub-fertility, pregnancy and maternity, cancer care recovery, aged care and stress management. Reflexology has a sound track record in helping many common conditions such as backache and soft tissue injury, IBS and digestive conditions, blood pressure irregularities, sub-fertility, stress anxiety and depression, PMS and migraines to name just a few. It is a complementary therapy, meaning that it can be used alongside, and in conjunction, with allopathic or Western medicine. Many studies have shown its effectiveness as a support for those undergoing chemo- or radio- therapy and it has been shown to be a highly effective element in the treatment plans for the management of many chronic conditions. Many cancer centres and hospitals in the UK now offer patients reflexology as part of their care for patients suffering from cancer.
