Therapy

At the beginning of the therapy there will be a diagnostic statement. Reduction of pain is a significant result of reflexology work. You should feel relaxed at the end of a session.

How long that relaxation lasts is a good indicator of the effectiveness of the session. Take note of this and give me your feedback in the following session. This can be very useful information.

Application of technique will be within your comfort zone- not too heavy and not too light but at a level within your personal preference.

The lessening of pain in response to reflexology is documented including individuals of all ages and health states: pain relief during childbirth and menstruation, phantom limb pain sufferers, lower back pain sufferers, kidney stone patients, senior citizens and individuals with pain resulting from surgery. According to Wikipedia: “Gate control theory asserts that activation of nerves which do not transmit pain signals, called non-nociceptive fibers, can interfere with signals from pain fibers, thereby inhibiting pain.” Stimulating nerves that sense touch, heat, cold and pressure – as does reflexology – overcomes the action of the pain nerves.

When using Reflexology as a therapy, it is advised to book more than one session.
