Reflexology is a treatment to the feet using massage and pressure to reflex points. It aims to balance the whole body so that it can work in harmony creating a feeling of well being. A Newhaven reflexology treatment can be tailored to leave you relaxed or energised and even used to target specific issues.
Newhaven Reflexology Treatment
The whole of the body is represented in the feet and the hands; each area (organ, limb…) has its own reflex point. By using pressure over these points, blockages and imbalances can be identified and cleared so that the natural flow of energy is restored.
An imbalance in one system of the body e.g. muscular, digestive, circulatory, endocrine… can have effect on the functioning of another, in this way reflexology can address the cause of a problem bringing balance back to the whole person.
Reflexology relieves congestion leading to increased circulation of blood therefore delivering more hormones, nutrients and oxygen to the areas that need them and increasing the flow of lymph ensuring toxins and waste are removed from the body as well improving the functioning of the immune system.
This treatment allows joints to be manipulated, nerves to be stimulated, pain to be relieved as well as giving a feeling of relaxation and balance.
The feet become desensitised to their surroundings as they are always covered with socks or shoes. Try walking around in bare feet on different surfaces to explore what are you able to feel. Leaving the Newhaven treatment room you can walk across carpet, vinyl, wood, grass and paving slabs. Notice the changes in temperature and texture as you say goodbye.
What to expect during a Newhaven Reflexology Treatment
On arrival a consultation will be carried out to find out about your health and well being; this will highlight any focus areas as well as deciding how to adapt the treatment specifically to your needs. It also allows you to ask any questions you may have as well as allowing the therapist to determine whether a treatment is suitable. (Treatment may be unsuitable due to some medical conditions, please see contraindications page for more details).
You will be able to get comfortable on the massage couch in private, the therapist will then cover you with a blanket and freshen your feet.
Your Newhaven reflexology treatment can last for 30, or 60 minutes. A 30 minute treatment will focus on a few key reflexes while a 60 minute reflexology treatment can cover the whole of the body as well as paying particular attention to chosen areas and finishing with a foot massage to soothe the feet.
At the end of the treatment you will be able to dress and then take a seat to have some water while discussing any findings the therapist may have made before going back out into the world.
