Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying specialized massage techniques to specific reflex points – using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles – the aim of a reflexology treatment is to help restore balance to the body naturally, and improve the client’s general well-being
Some therapists may also work reflex points on the hands, ears and face; however it is the feet that are most commonly treated in reflexology.
What to expect
Your therapist will start with a full consultation, asking various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure reflexology is right for you.
For the treatment itself you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks. You’ll be invited to relax on a reclining chair or treatment couch, or to put your feet up on a footstool. The therapist will gently cleanse your feet before applying a cream or oil, to help provide a free-flowing treatment, and then start gently massaging and stretching your feet and ankles.

‘M’ Technique ® is a means of holistic communication. This structured system of touch is suitable for treating very frail patients when normal massage is inappropriate. The ‘M’ works on skin receptors sites that send messages to the brain. This therapy has been used in America since 1994 and taught in Universities Hospitals and Nursing Colleges. Deeply relaxing and comforting for patients this therapy is also very beneficial for healthy persons.
