Reflexology At Emerald
Reflexology is a complementary health therapy that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing; reducing stress in people’s lives can be key in optimising good health and building resilience. It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body and reflexologists work these points and areas.
The principle theory behind reflexology is that all the systems and organs of the body are mapped or reflected in smaller peripheral areas, for example, the feet, hands, ears and face.
Reflexology, an ancient practice originating from Egypt, India, and China, made its way to the Western world thanks to Dr. William Fitzgerald’s pioneering work in the early 1900s. He introduced “Zone therapy,” which emphasized the connection between reflex areas on the hands and feet and various organs and areas of the body within the same zone.
What happens when I go from my reflexology treatment at Emerald?
A full medical history will be requested on your first treatment, and you will be asked to sign a consent form for treatment. This information will be kept confidential. Your therapist will use a massage wax of you choice and start the treatment. At the end of the treatment findings will be explained to you.
After you may feel a sense of well-being and relaxation; however, sometimes people report feeling lethargic, nauseous or tearful, but this is usually transitory and reflexologists believe that it is part of the healing process.
