What is Reflexology?
Reflexology in Hertfordshire is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
Reflexology is an ancient art dating back over 2500 years. This holistic treatment works on the feet and/or hands to rebalance the whole body. Massage and pressure point techniques are used which have a direct effect on the energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each part of the foot and/or hands, face and even the ears correspond to parts of the body.
Energy (Chi) can sometimes become stagnated/congested, Reflexology is sometimes used to aid the unblocking of stagnated or congested energy – assisting the free flow of energy – stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms to naturally rebalance the body, creating an overall feeling of wellbeing.
Reflexology in Hertfordshire is a safe non-invasive treatment suitable for anyone. It is recommended that pregnant women within the three month trimester abstain from reflexology – as it is contra-indicated.

What happens when I go for a treatment?
A full medical history will be requested on your first treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent form for treatment. This information will be kept confidential. Reflexology is a very easy therapy to receive; depending on the type of reflexology, the most clothing that will have to be removed for a treatment to take place will be your socks and shoes.
The therapist will then use their hands to apply pressure to the feet, lower leg, hands, ears or face, depending on the type of reflexology chosen. You may feel areas of transient discomfort during the treatment, but generally the experience should be relaxing.
The therapist may recommend a course of treatments.
How will I feel after a reflexology treatment?
It is useful to give feedback to the reflexologist as this may show the response of your body to treatment. This in turn might help the reflexologist to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very noticeable way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation; however, sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is usually transitory and reflexologists believe that it is part of the healing process.
