Lisa Meakins Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these foot reflexes, reflexology relieves tension and pain, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. Applying pressure on some areas of the feet also send signals that 'balance' the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce stress and pain.

Conditions that Reflexology may benefit include:

What can I expect from reflexology?

Your first treatment will include a questionnaire of about 10 minutes. This covers your lifestyle and any relevant health issues to enable me to tailor your treatment accordingly. I will start by cleaning your feet and then I will use gentle techniques to ensure your feet are warmed up for treatment.

During treatment I will make a general assessment of your feet, noting temperature, colouration and areas of dryness and factor this into your treatment plan. Mostly using my thumbs I will massage and apply pressure to the feet. The treatment is normally deeply relaxing and pressure can be increased or decreased according to your needs. After treatment you should drink lots of water and stay as relaxed as possible.
