What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a fantastic and powerful treatment and works positive on all body systems; it boosts the immune system and general well-being.
How does Reflexology work?
The whole body is reflected in the feet. By applying gentle pressure to specific points in the feet the whole body can be treated, bringing about a state of deep relaxation, stimulating the body’s own healing processes and helping you to a state of wellbeing.
It helps to release blocked energy thereby bringing balance and harmony to the mind and body.
Reflexology is good for and helps: digestive disorders, back pain, sleep disorders, stress related conditions, hormonal imbalances, infertility.
Reflexology in Pregnancy
Pregnancy Reflexology is fantastic in supporting pregnant woman throughout the pregnancy as it will help staying balanced. There are many rapid hormonal changes in a pregnant woman. Those changes mainly occur from alteration in hormone production the circulation and metabolism. Reflexology can help to maintain feeling balanced. It is good for conditions such as fatigue, oedemas, palpitations, constipation, heartburn, morning sickness and back pain just to name a few.
Reflexology can also be a wonderful help for inducing labour, it is a gentle way and works by working on the piturity gland and hypothalamus reflexes, releasing hormones to induce labour the natural way.
As Reflexology is a very balancing and relaxing treatment is it fantastic for couples who are trying to conceive as such can be quite stressful. It will help by balancing hormone levels and reduce stress levels.
By being so calming, balancing and relaxing it is great for assisted fertility too. Sometimes the stress and pressure of keeping on trying to become pregnant is enough to prevent it happening. If the couple starts to feel less stressed about the situation often pregnancy happens easily.
Reflexology is great as it can be given nearly everywhere; therefore it is great to have it at home in the office or at events. It can be anytime from 20 min to 60 min. At Blink we like to treat the hands and the head for a couple of minutes in the 60min treatment. The same points you have in the feet are also in the hands and ears so I believe that it is a more complete treatment to work and invigorate those points as well.
