Tired, stressed, fed up of feeling unwell?
Need a general energy boost or just some relaxing ‘me’ time?
Reflexology is a positive step in the right direction – a holistic therapy treating the whole body, mind and soul.
Reflexology is based on the principle that the whole body is represented by ‘reflex’ points on the feet. By applying gentle pressure to these reflex points a response may be stimulated in the corresponding part of the body allowing all the systems of the body to function more efficiently.
This gentle non-invasive treatment can help to reduce pain problems, promote relaxation, stimulate circulation, reduce toxicity and strengthen the immune system. By helping to restore the body’s natural balance it may promote self‑healing and be preventative as well as bringing relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions.
Benefits of reflexology include:
- Relief from stress, anxiety and tension
- Feelings of deep relaxation
- Improved mood
- Improved sleep
- A general sense of health and well-being
Reflexology is often used alongside conventional care in hospices, hospitals and other healthcare settings. Reflexology should not be used in place of conventional medical care.
Having regular treatments can help to maintain health and well-being, and optimises the benefits of this holistic treatment.
As with any profession, in order to keep up with new ideas, changing regulations and to regularly refresh and enhance skills, continuous professional development (CPD) is important.
Completion of CPD is compulsory for membership of both the FHT and CNHC and it is required for insurance purposes, therefore regular CPD is undertaken.
