Reflexology is my favourite therapy. 

I am instantly relaxed by the therapists calming persona, drifting into a meditative state by the soothing music in the background and then submissively melting into a bliss state as my feet are worked on. 

There are points on our feet that reflect certain parts of your body. For example, if you look at the big toe, that reflects the head. The line from the big toe down the inside of your foot to the heel reflects the spine. The left foot reflects the left side of your body; the right side is the right side of your body. When points are stimulated in the foot, the corresponding areas within the body will have the energies re-balanced, allowing them to flow more freely.

I usually experience some ‘crunching’ in an area of my foot & am told that this doesn’t necessarily mean there’s anything major to worry about; it could just mean that there could be a bit of an imbalance. Naturally crystals build up in the feet, so reflexology can also help to break them down.

Reflexologists can’t diagnose prescribe or cure. They give a healing treatment that’s tailored to an individual’s wellbeing (physical and non-physical). By the time my session come to an end I always feel less stressed and more relaxed! I am sure it wasn’t just down to the indulgent reflexology, but also being around such positive therapists.

I enjoy pampering my feet, I am grateful for them; they allow me to partake in my passion for walking. At the same time, through them, I am allowing my body to receive some TLC and to rebalance. It was great knowing that they were in good hands… Literally!

I have decided that this isn't a therapy that I could practice in as I am not keen on touching my own feet, let alone someone else's! But I do admire those who can, and can make me feel as great as I do after each session!

Have you had reflexology? How did you like it?

"Thank you for the recommendation, I am very pleased that you enjoy this amazing treatment. For me as a therapist, I love working on a client's feet. I think it is amazing that they can indicate so much, and caring for our feet really does enhance well being. Reflexology is a holistic therapy, so in addition to the physical reaction and relaxation experienced during a treatment, it can also improve mental health. There are many benefits to reflexolgy, and regular treatments can help to keep the mind and body balanced. Reflexology is undoubtedly one of the most relaxing treatments I deliver, and it is not unusual for clients to drift off into a state of deep relaxation during their treatment!"

"I am an intuitive reflexologist and foot reader. I also love feet! They talk and can tell us lots about the client and where they are in their journey. It is great to help someone grow and watch them become the person they should be. It's lovely to be part of that journey. Reflexology isn't for everyone as not many like feet, but those of us that do, I cannot think of anything more rewarding. "
