Reflexology is an Ancient Healing Technique used by numerous cultures including the Egyptians, Native American Indians, the Chinese and the Tibetans who used Reflexology as a Secret health maintenance program for their High Priests!
It involves the massage, manipulation and gentle kneeding of the feet in a specialised manner that opens energy pathways enabeling trapped "chi" or "prana" (vital life force) to move through the body as it should, which will then promote good health.
We came onto this planet bare-footed and the action of walking on the Earth has a similar natural effect, however due to our lifestyles we have broken this connection with the Earth through wearing shoes, expending energy unnecessarily; on too many thoughts, bad diets and or bad posture and/or lack of excercise. All of this results in our under performing/ achieving/enjoying.
Allowing Energy to move through Reflexology begins the process of coming back into the moment, into our true selves. A divine self realisation may occur when we cannot control the urge to smile within and to recognise the great mystery of life - our true nature and that of the Divine is One!
Conditions that can be helped.
Reflexology is an amazing therapy that enabels the body's own healing mechanism to function to its maximum potential. Once this is stimulated any imbalances or ailments begin to ease as energy surges to and through the area. Specifically many ailments have been sited as benefiting from Reflexology including STRESS, POOR SLEEP, TIREDNESS, ECZEMA, ASTHMA, ACHES AND PAINS,IBS,CONSTIPATION.
The list is endless as REFLEXOLOGY helps the body's innate healing power to activate and heal itself.
Pregnancy is helped and child birth can be greatly eased with pre-natal courses of REFLEXOLOGY.
What Benefits can be Expected?
A visit to Reflexions for a Reflexology experience begins once comfortably reclined in one of our specially designed chairs, all pressure is taken off the feet and lower back and the spine is supported and relaxed - a feeling of weightlessness and timelessness ensues!
Already our patterns of daily life have been interupted, a new perspective and flow of vital life force energy will bring balance and healing to the individual.
Our half hour introduction allows you to experience for yourself just how exquisite reflexology feels and how good you feel after the treatment , you may sleep better, feel lighter, more centered focused and grounded.
A one hour session allows time for consultation so that the treatment can be directed to those specific physical systems that need attention and gives more time to switch off and the therapist more time to work on areas that present through the feet.
