Treatments

A treatment is like a car tune up, cleaning and clearing all parts and fluids so that they all work together smoothly and efficiently. The body wants to be well and responds to a treatment.

The lymphatic system flushes excessive fluids, waste materials and toxins more efficiently, including lactic acid that causes muscle pain after exercise. This leaves room for the stimulated blood circulation to carry nutrients to those cleared cells, and there are trillions of them.

As cells are healthier, all organs, glands and muscles benefit and respond to ease pain and tension leading to a body that is stronger and healthier thus improving quality of life.

RLD has shown to be effective for many conditions such as

  • lymphoedema
  • lipoedema
  • auto-immune conditions
  • arthritis
  • chronic fatigue
  • migraines
  • PMT
  • post surgery
  • etc.

Mental Clarity

Stress affects both body and mind. Being in a state of abandon helps the brain to support the free flow of alpha waves which promote relaxation whilst the beta waves that follow support alertness. Together, they support the body’s healing capacity as it responds to the treatment.

Reiki, present during all treatments, supports mental and physical health further.

The combination of Reflexology and Reiki during a treatment, clears stress and emotional blocks as the parasympathetic nervous system is activated. It acts like a brake, it promotes the "rest and digest" response that calms body and mind.

The body conserves energy as it slows heart rate, increases intestinal and gland activity, and relaxes sphincter muscles in the gastrointestinal tract.

Some conditions that may benefit are:

  • stress
  • depression
  • grieving
  • lack of focus

Improved Foot Mobility

Our feet carry us through life. As with any other part of our bodies, we really only notice them when there is pain or restriction in our ability to carry on with daily tasks or exercise.

Gentle mobilization, combined with Reflexology, is beneficial to restore foot flexibility and function. As we age, balance, stability and foot stiffness become an issue. Joints in the feet are more prone to stiffen as calcification and/or arthritis sets in.

The gentle mobilization techniques relieve much of that by creating space in the joints, improve stability through engaged muscles as well as foot strength and flexibility. Treatments support improved mobility throughout the day.

Some conditions that may benefit:

  • plantar fasciitis
  • Morton Neuroma
  • arthritis
  • pain
  • stiffness
  • balance

Sport & Athletes

Reflexology can help reduce pain and speed up recovery from injury. The earlier the treatments start the better the results.

Preparing for competition, a treatment helps to improve mental focus, circulation and lymphatic action. Muscles respond, and this inhibits the production of lactic acid and there is increased ‘readiness’ to get into action as all body systems are more relaxed and prepared to function at an intense level.

This is true for any level of exercise or activity from amateur to professional.

If muscle pain still happens, a treatment helps clear the increased levels of lactic acid and improve muscle tone, which may help speed up recovery. Working on the feet, face and ears, injured or recovering limbs or joints do not need to be touched directly which reduces recovery time and prepares the body to receive treatments from physiotherapists or exercise physiologists.

Women's Health

From the cradle to the grave, Reflexology supports women’s health.

Puberty
As puberty sets in, mood changes and lower abdominal pain may be experienced by young girls as their first cycle is approaching.

PMT
Before and during your period, you may experience physical and emotional changes. This can be pain in the lower back and/or abdomen, moods fluctuate, you may feel bloated, have tender breasts, depression, headaches, etc.

Conception
Often, facing unexplained infertility, Reflexology and lifestyle advice support the couple and pregnancy may follow, research shows this often happens within 6 months of starting Reflexology treatments. Stress releases cortisol, the stress hormone, which reduces the production of the hormones that support conception. Body and mind relax deeply during this holistic treatment which helps balance hormone production.

Pregnancy
Regular Reflexology during pregnancy reduces labour time as contractions intensify and eases many discomforts such as

  • nausea
  • pubic symphysis
  • oedema
  • fatigue
  • constipation

Post partum
Health after birth, hormones fluctuate again and your body and emotions go through big changes. Milk production may or may not happen easily. Receiving support during this time is beneficial and Reflexology supports body and mind and supports milk production.

Menopause
As we approach menopause, the body changes quite dramatically as both physical and emotional symptoms appear. Hot flushes are eased and mood changes are levelled out.

Balance Hormones
Reflexology is very useful during these times of change, adaptation and hormonal fluctuations as hormones are balanced and cycles are regulated when irregular.

Pain Reduction

Research has shown that people felt about 40% less pain when receiving Reflexology and another study shows that it acts as an analgesic.

Reflexology may offer pain relief and a treatment helps to manage pain using ‘Reflexology in motion’, a treatment that supports the painful area without touching it and the hormonal system is balanced to remove resistance. The treatment focusses on promoting relaxation.

Some conditions respond better than others however, there is generally a decrease in the level of pain.
