Reflexology has many beneficial and lasting effects. Some treatments are gentle in nature, aiming to restore systems for better function while others are more specific, addressing the client's particular conditions. It is a healing process that can be safely used when it is not convenient to treat other body parts. As a non-intrusive technique, it heals indirectly. Reflexology can be a relaxing therapy that works on many levels, soothing, calming, balancing and boosting the entire body.
Reflexologists apply special massage and compression techniques that many find relaxing in itself. The aim is to alleviate pain or stress from the body by targeting corresponding areas or zones in the feet. There is a belief that this will have a continuing positive effect on the rest of the body. Reflexologists gain an understanding of a client’s needs before beginning treatment, to ensure their treatment is appropriate.
