Reflexology and Aromareflex in Bath
A full-foot treatment focusing on the reflexes in your feet which relate to the body’s physiological systems to meet all your health needs. It includes a relaxing pre and post-foot massage.
This is a wonderful treatment that incorporates all the benefits of reflexology and aromatherapy to support your health needs.
Treatment options include 1 hour of foot reflexology or 1 hour 15 minutes of hand and foot reflexology.
You will receive a full reflexology treatment using your tailored blend of oils, including massage on your lower legs, arms, and hands.
The aromatherapy blend used during your treatment is made for you at the beginning of the treatment and you will receive an aftercare blend to maximise the benefits at home.
Five Element Foot Reflexology
This style of reflexology also uses traditional Chinese medicine, incorporating acupressure points and Chinese foot massage techniques to enhance the treatment.
Receiving reflexology with me: we will go through a full consultation and decide a treatment plan to suit your needs using a combination of releasing techniques for congestion and tension and tonifying techniques to support underlying depletion or tiredness.
I work by incorporating the five element traditional Chinese medical system, which brings in new emotional, mental, and physiological associations to the organ systems of the body. This allows us to see your life as a whole and offer supportive aftercare and treatments plans.
I am also trained in lymph drainage reflexology (RLD) and can incorporate this into treatments. It has been shown to reduce oedema and is used very safely with secondary lymphoedema that can occur from issues post cancer treatment (usually 1 hour).
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment that works on a physical level through the nervous system and circulation and on emotional and mental levels by deeply relaxing the mind and body.
The body has the ability to heal itself if it is in a state of imbalance during or after illness, stress, injury, or disease.
Reflexology works on points on the feet and hands corresponding to the organs, glands, and all parts of the body, to encourage healing and to restore and maintain a natural equilibrium.
With five-element reflexology, you are benefiting both from traditional reflexology and the incorporation of traditional Chinese medicine techniques and principles to deepen the received treatment and its effects.
Good health is a balance on all levels of being: body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Treatment of these corresponding reflexes on the feet and hands activates the healing powers of the whole person. Congestion or tension in any part of the feet or hands mirrors that which is in the corresponding part of the body.
The history of reflexology
The ancient healing art of working on the feet to deal with health issues has been practiced for thousands of years: there have been cited links to the Egyptians, Chinese and Indian peoples. It was rediscovered in the west during the last hundred years and was developed in the USA, Britain, and Germany into the reflexology therapy we use today.
