Reflexology foot massage offered in a relaxing setting.
The Reflexology Massage Therapy is a form of pressure-point massage. The therapy accesses as well as heals through specific points or reflexes in the hands and feet that link to the body’s organ and muscular function.
Reflexology Massage Therapy is an effective health preventive massage as well as attributing to being beneficial for instantly relieving the client of certain health issues. We consider it a vital part of what we offer in our massage Leeds therapies. Massage Therapists who administer reflexology use a combination of massage techniques, squeeze and release movements coupled with pressure-point pushing. These massage techniques pinpoint specific parts of the foot, hands as well as ears as part of the treatment.
How Reflexology Foot Massage Works
Foot reflexology therapy uses nerves or reflex points in the bottom of our feet that go to the top of our head. As the nerves travel throughout the body they connect all the major as well as vital organs on the way. Reflexology Foot massage is effective and a non-evasive method of treating whole body ailments through massage of nerves in the feet. Long established, records of this ancient healing art dates back as far as ancient Egypt.
Reflexology uses the principle in Chinese medicine that we all have energy channels which run vertically through the body. The energy in these channels is a vital life force or Chi.
Reflexologists have mapped the structures as well as organs of the body to specific points on the feet, reaching the energy channels through the feet as they are near to the surface of the skin.
In reflexology, the therapist will apply pressure to specific points on your feet to stimulate the energy in certain areas of your body. Stress, illness or physical trauma can negatively impact the flow of Chi and the aim of reflexology is to release stagnant energy and make the energy flow freely.
When you come along for your first session the therapist will ask you some questions about your health in addition to finding out what you need. After this consultation, you will remove your shoes and lie down on a couch or sit if you prefer. It’s best to wear loose fitting clothing for this treatment so that you are comfortable throughout.
