Reflexology - Ireland

What is Reflexology ?

Reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves using the hands and fingers to apply pressure to reflex areas of the feet to effect positive physical change in other parts of the body. It is rooted in the belief that different parts of the feet represent various parts of the body and the way it works.

By mapping the body on to the feet reflexologist manipulate and apply pressure to reduce stress on the body's organs, glands, and other body parts and systems. Reflexology is used to treat a wide variety of ailments and conditions.

What Conditions Does Reflexology Treat?

Reflexology can treat nearly all health problems. Even though all reflex areas may be massaged, the reflexologist pays particular attention to the relevant problem area. For example, when the therapist is treating for migraines, strokes, and multiple sclerosis, he / she will apply pressure to the reflex point in the foot or hand that relates to the head and other connecting areas. Reflexology is not suitable for difficulties such as broken bones but if it is used regularly Reflexology will enhance other treatments that you are receiving by keeping the circulation stimulated and the lymphatic system active. In this way Reflexology truly is a complementary therapy.

Reflexology is particularly useful in treating; stress, migraine, sinus problems, back problems, breathing difficulties, hormone imbalance, digestive disorders, and poor circulation.

What Happens When You Visit a Reflexologist ?

Reflexology treatments may take up to one hour and perhaps more depending on the condition being treated. For best results six weekly sessions are usually recommended. Your reflexologist will spend your initial consultation making a detailed record of your medical history. Clients must remove your shoes and socks and sit on a treatment couch or special treatment chair. The reflexologist will note the general appearance of your foot and will check for any lesions or corns that may not be able to receive pressure.

Reflexology treatment employs light, but firm, compression massage to the soles and upper parts of your feet. Some therapists may use talcum powder but oils or creams are never used.

Reflex points are very small so the reflexologist must be very accurate and precise. In some cases there may be a significant reaction to the first Reflexology treatment including increased bowel movements, cold or flu-like symptoms or even skin reactions.

Clients should not be put off by this as it is a very healthy sign which signifies that the reflexologist has promoted the release of harmful toxins from the body. At times during treatment some areas of the foot may feel somewhat tender and these will correlate with the problem areas in other parts of the body.

If your therapist deems it necessary he / she may show you how to treat certain conditions at home by showing you the exact area of the foot to press.

Finally please don't worry if you have feet that are a bit ticklish, Reflexology treatment is very precise and quite firm.
