The hands and feet are curious parts of our body often taken for granted, ignored and forgotten about. Yet we use them every day. They help us to ‘handle what life throws at us’ and ‘stand our ground’ when we need to, perfectly mapping the body they sensitively respond to the stimulus of the various Reflexology movements used during a treatment.
Reflexology is one of the oldest natural therapies. There is evidence that forms of pressure work on the hands and feet have been used throughout history by many ancient cultures to promote healing and relieve pain. Reflexology, as it is practiced worldwide today, has been developed through knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine acupressure points, ancient Egyptian practices and Western Zone Theory.
As a non-invasive holistic touch therapy, Reflexology works on the principle that the feet perfectly map the body and, with over 7000 nerve endings in each foot, they sensitively respond to the stimulus of the various Reflexology movements used during a treatment. By applying pressure to these nerve endings, the autonomic nervous system and circulatory system are stimulated, which improves blood flow and helps better functioning of all the organs and structures of the body.
What a session involves
I will complete a consultation form with you, which enables me to gain useful and relevant information about your state of health, past and present, and to find out more about your expectations of the treatment. This allows me to ensure the treatment is tailor made according to your requirements. You will remain fully clothed apart from taking off your shoes and socks for foot reflexology.
I use a gentle and soothing Light Touch technique to stimulate the reflexes corresponding to areas of the whole body and its systems, focusing on any problematic areas. The treatment instils a great sense of calmness, warmth and relaxation. You may stay alert throughout the treatment, or you may find yourself with your eyes closed and maybe even asleep at times, either way is fine.

“I have been seeing Sarah regularly over the past 18 months and highly recommend. The actual reflexology is something else, today I had a treatment (was feeling really drained and exhausted). Afterwards felt very refreshed. A genuine and top person.”
