Have you ever noticed that your posture changes according to how you are feeling? When you are depressed, your shoulders slump, your head hangs low. When you are happy, you walk tall. How you feel affects your whole body. This includes the feet. You can imagine the impact that your body posture will have on the feet. It works both ways, the feet have a massive impact on the rest of your body too.
There are reflex areas in the feet and hands which a reflexologist uses to help the rest of the body rebalance, and relax. Many people think that reflexology is just a nice foot massage. They don't realize that through working these reflex points on the feet, we are able to assist the body in its healing. Studies have shown the powerful effect of touch on measurably reducing cortisol levels which is why this treatment is so fantastic for lowering stress states.
For information on references to scientific research relating to Reflexology, see the menu on the right.
Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas to:-
- Relieve stress and tension
- Improve blood supply and unblock nerve impulses
- Help bring the body back into balance (homeostasis)
Jane's reflexology clients come to her for many different reasons. No two clients are the same and therefore no two treatments are the same.
For anyone who is interested in topping up their treatment by working some of the reflexes themselves, Jane will offer some reflexology techniques as homework.
If you would like to organize a reflexology treatment for a friend, gift vouchers valid for twelve months are available. Just contact Jane stating what message you would like in your gift voucher and she will send you a paypal invoice for the amount. Upon receipt of the payment she will post a voucher to you.
