Reflexology

Reflexology is a specific pressure technique applied to the LEAFLET-Reflexology-1-Close-upfeet. Performed in a semi-reclined position – only shoes and socks need to be removed. Reflexology begins with a massage to warm up and relax the feet and ankles. Then the Therapist works around the feet and ankles using her thumbs and fingers. Reflexology ends with a soothing foot massage, leaving feet feeling warm, relaxed and soft.

Reflexology dates back to ancient civilisations and is based on the principles that the organs, glands and systems of the body are reflected in miniature on the feet and that energy flows through the body in 10 longitudinal zones. Specific pressure techniques are applied to the feet, which can help initiate and accelerate balance in the corresponding area of the body. There are over 7000 nerve endings around the feet and ankles and reflexology aims to stimulate as many of these as possible.

Though no Therapist can promise specific results, over the years Hayley’s Clients have reported relief of symptoms of many common conditions and ailments after receiving reflexology.nohands1_s

Some clients prefer to lay on their front fully reclined and Reflexology can be done this way too (Reflex Therapy) and may include work on the backs of the legs through the blanket.  Hayley can use her forearm here to work the feet and ankles as well as work some traditional reflexology points on the feet and a relaxing foot massage concludes the therapy.

After Reflexology, Clients often say their feet feel very ‘opened up’ and ‘released’ and they have a feeling of ‘walking on air’.

Mr S Foltin
“I recently went to Hayley because I had been suffering from nasal congestion and crackling in my ears as a result of this. I decided to have ear candling carried out as I kept giving so many off the shelf remedies a go. It was a very relaxing experience and could feel the benefits as soon as my face was massaged at the same time. My head definitely felt clearer as a result of this treatment and won’t hesitate to have it done again. I have never gone for this sort treatment before and now I have had reflexology and a rejuvenating face massage carried out too. Both these treatments had the most amazing relaxing effect – I felt de-stressed and an immense sense of wellbeing. Highly recommended indeed!!!!”

Reflexology really helps me sleep and I wake feeling energised, which is very unusual for me as I have rheumatoid arthritis. It also helps with my pain relief and mobility too.”
Mrs B H
Reflexology enabled me to cope with some of the anxieties associated with medical treatment undertaken. I feel balanced, calm and serene.”
Mrs J E
“I had a lot of pain in my toes. After the first reflexology treatment my toes moved better than they had in ages. The next day, the pain just went in my feet and they felt fantastic. I also felt revitalised.”
C Clarke
“I enjoy a regular reflexology and recently tried the Reflex Treatment too. The benefits were 2 fold – it felt like I’d had a massage as well as reflexology. My body felt really relaxed and opened up before the feet were even touched. I had a lovely feeling of floating away. Total relaxation!”
D Bolderson
“I came for my first reflexology session full of scepticism, although a friend had recommended it to me. I could not believe that it could do any ‘real good’. However, after my first session I was just so wonderfully relaxed. I slept really well for the first time in a long time, and felt just a sense of general well-being that I had not felt before. I still don’t know how it works; I just know that it does for me.”
