Reflexology is a complementary therapy that uses massage and pressure points on the feet, hands, ears or face 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 modern 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.

I have experience working on clients with a variety of health conditions including IBS, ulcerative colitis, hormonal issues (PMS, PMDD), autoimmune disorders (rheumatoid arthritis), stress and sleep problems.

A standard reflexology treatment lasts one hour long and only requires the patient to remove any footwear and socks. Make sure feet are clean and free from any wounds or infections before booking. An online consultation form will be emailed to you before each treatment asking for personal and medical information. A treatment plan of 4-6 reflexology sessions may be recommended 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, or for conditions such as heart conditions and epilepsy.

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 per session. 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. 

You can request a free telephone consultation if you are unsure of how reflexology can help you and your family.
