Information about reflexology

What can reflexology treat?

Reflexology can work wonders for people needing stress-release, as well as supporting their health alongside periods of illness, medical treatments or low energy, menstrual and menopausal symptoms, headaches and anxiety. 

When can reflexology help?

Reflexology foot massage not only eases the tension and stresses of the muscles and ligaments in the foot, it also stimulates the reflexes so you can expect an enhanced sense of well-being, throughout your body.

What are the benefits of reflexology

Reflexology can be deeply blissful and relaxing as the feet themselves release and relax. Your feet support your whole body literally – the weight of your body being held and moved every day.

I was so relaxed and comfortable in Fi’s company - she clearly knows exactly what she’s doing. Fi went above and beyond to explain different types of massage and asked how much pressure I liked.I never knew how much I needed a massageand I feel so much better and relieved of tension.The space is absolutely beautiful as well, so cosy and gorgeous.

I have had many massages, but this was by far the best! I spoke at length with Fi before the appointment, explaining how I am struggling with migraines during pregnancy. During the massage, I could tell that Fi really took on board my problem and worked hard around the tension areas. It really felt that she knew exactly how to target the problem areas of a migraine-head! I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep a few times! And I left feeling so much better. Fi made sure I was comfortable and offered extra towels for support under my shoulders which I hadn’t had before. She really couldn’t have done any more. The room was lovely and warm and the towels that had been warming on the radiator were heavenly and were even swapped half way through for an extra treat! Can not recommend enough for a pregnancy massage / massage to help with migraines and tension!

Benefits of reflexology

Balance and Harmony

Reflexology is believed to restore the body's natural energy flow and balance, leading to a sense of well-being and holistic health.

Pain Reduction

Many individuals experience relief from pain, including headaches, menstrual cramps, and muscular tension, after reflexology sessions.

Stress Relief

Reflexology promotes relaxation, helping to reduce the physical and emotional symptoms of stress.

Improved Circulation

The therapy can enhance blood flow, aiding in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells and promoting better overall health.

What issues could reflexology help?

Digestive Disorders

Reflexology targets specific points linked to the digestive system, aiming to alleviate symptoms like bloating, constipation, and indigestion. By promoting balance in this system, it can aid in improved digestion and nutrient absorption.

Sleep Disorders

By inducing relaxation and addressing points associated with the nervous system, reflexology can assist individuals suffering from insomnia or disrupted sleep patterns. Many people report better sleep quality and duration after undergoing reflexology sessions.

Hormonal Imbalances

Reflexology sessions can focus on endocrine-related points to help regulate hormone levels. This can be beneficial for conditions like menopause, PMS, or thyroid disorders where hormonal balance is crucial.

Chronic Pain

Pressure points related to pain centers in the body can be targeted in reflexology to offer relief from conditions like arthritis, back pain, or migraines. The practice can also boost endorphin production, the body's natural painkillers.

Respiratory Issues

Reflexology aims to strengthen the respiratory system by targeting associated zones, potentially aiding those with conditions like asthma or bronchitis. Enhanced blood flow can also assist in better oxygen distribution throughout the body.

Mental Health Concerns

By promoting relaxation and balance in the body's energy systems, reflexology can offer support for those dealing with anxiety, depression, or chronic stress. The holistic approach of the therapy can foster a sense of well-being and emotional stability.

Katie first became interested in massage 20 years ago during a visit to China and after studying and practicing, she now specialises in offering Chinese energy focused deep tissue massages called Tui Na.
