Reflexology is a gentle, holistic treatment, usually performed on the feet, designed to balance and restore all the body systems. In each treatment, all the reflexes are worked with a variety of massage techniques, often bringing deep relaxation.
As reflexology facilitates the body's own ability to heal and aims to tune up and balance all the body systems, most conditions benefit from treatment.
However, digestive issues, menstrual/ reproductive issues, respiratory issues (such as asthma), stress, anxiety and depression can particularly benefit from reflexology.
Remedial massage/myotherapy are primarily focused on alleviating pain and discomfort in the muscles, ligaments and tendons. They are particularly good for addressing chronic issues such as stiff/sore shoulders and neck, lower back pain, headaches,
migraines, sciatic pain and general tightness.
A thorough assessment of your health history and current presenting problem will take place at the beginning of your session. Techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, cupping, muscle energy technique, dry needling and myofascial release may be employed.
Massage during pregnancy is a wonderful way to ease pain and tension throughout the body, especially for areas such as lower back and hips which often become sore as the pregnancy progresses. It is also a chance to relax and unwind, supporting emotional balance and self care at this important time.
