First and foremost, reflexology is a calming therapy and is designed to comfort, reassure, support and then gently energise your whole body. It is also deeply relaxing and many find it enables them to mentally ‘switch off’. As your reflexologist works each specific point (reflex) you may feel more aware of where they are on your feet but we do not work into pain. In fact, you may feel so relaxed that you float away from focusing on your feet towards sleep or what is called the hypnogogic state – the blissful point between being awake and asleep.
The more often you have reflexology, the more quickly your brain makes the association with rest so you may find you sleep throughout sessions. We offer 60 minute, deeply calming and restorative sessions or 30 minute Power Reflexology treatments with a focus on one specific concern and its related systems – eg. lower back pain or headaches.
At the end of each session your therapist will discuss points that felt out of balance and may suggest ways in which small lifestyle changes may help you overcome challenges to your health.
