Reflexology is a complementary therapy that uses pressure points on the feet and hands to help treat a wide range of conditions. It has roots in ancient Egypt and China, but was shaped into a modern treatment by Dr William Fitzgerald who developed zone therapy and then Eunice Ingham who developed what we now know as reflexology in the 1930s.  

Conditions that may benefit from reflexology are most stress related illnesses such as IBS, migraines and tension, as this therapy is very relaxing and can help to balance the body's systems. Many studies have shown that reflexology is as good as relieving pain as over the counter pain killers, such as paracetamol. In 2003, the NICE guidelines were updated to include recommendations of using reflexology to help pain in MS sufferers.

A standard reflexology treatment lasts one hour long and only requires the patient to remove any footwear and socks. A brief consultation will need to be completed at your first session to cover your medical history, any contraindications and establish your expectations of the treatment. A treatment plan of 4-6 reflexology sessions may be needed to see improvements of some conditions and symptoms.

Please speak to your GP or consultant if you want to try reflexology alongside extensive medical treatment, such as chemotherapy.

Reflexology should not be used as a substitute for medical treatments and should always be used 'as well as' not 'instead of'.

 

 

Price is £35 for a one hour reflexology treatment (first session will be longer due to consultation). This is a mobile service where I will come to your own home with my equipment to perform the treatment. This will help to eliminate stress and provide a relaxing treatment without the need to travel afterwards. I cover most areas in North Shropshire, including Oswestry, Telford, Whitchurch, Market Drayton, Wem, Shrewsbury and surrounding areas.

I also offer a pregnancy reflexology package if you are expecting - click here to find out more.
