Reflexology


The human foot is the end of 7,200 nerves that connect directly to the brain and, at the same time, to all parts of the body. Reflexology or “zonal” therapy – is a method treating various diseases by pressing on appropriate areas of the body surface called reflexes, which are located on the feet, hands and face. Reflexes have a direct connection to all glands, organs and parts of the body.

In many countries around the world, reflexology has found its place in hospitals, residential care homes and nursing homes as an excellent supplement to applied medicine. Reflexology is a therapy that recognises the individual needs of the client in each case, adapting to his current health condition.

How the treatment looks like?

This is a unique method of “walking” over the reflex points with a thumb and fingers. Reflexology is not acupressure or massage. It is walking with the thumb and fingers across the foot (or hand), with a uniform force of pressure with a variable angle of action, passing in sequence the healthy, sick places to the healthy place. The reflexology treatment consists in a thorough therapeutic “transition” of the entire foot. In the case of a healthy organism without any ailments, the treated foot does not give any painful sensations and is the same feeling throughout. In the case of any visual changes (different colour of the epidermis, calluses) or areas causing pain, it signals to us the presence of a problem.

Benefits

Reflexology allows for an insight into our body, improves its work, may help in various ailments.

According to The Association of Reflexologists: ”The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving.

Reflexology is a helpful complementary treatment, especially for stress and anxiety.

Please note: reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice.

What does the treatment look like?

The foot reflexology treatment takes about 60 minutes. The first visit is usually longer due to the need to interview the client. Its purpose is, among others determining the current state of health, determining possible contraindications, familiarising with client’s lifestyle, the diet, etc. The procedure is performed in a reclining position and covers the feet up to the knee. The treatment consists of 3 parts:

  • Warm up massage – gently relaxing and stretching the muscles, tendons and joints of the foot
  • The therapeutic part – thumb walking and pressing the various points, stimulation of appropriate
    reflexes on the entire feet (sole, back and sides)
  • Relaxation and grounding – to close out the treatment.
    The touch in the reflexology treatment is firm and firm, therefore it does not cause tickles. Greater sensitivity and pain of certain reflexes that may appear during the procedure indicates an imbalance in the corresponding area of the body. With time, after subsequent visits, thanks to the following healing process, the sensitivity of reflexes decreases and the client feels more and more pleasure during the procedure.
