At PMPP our Remedial Massage Therapist Leah Richards is also trained in Reflexology. Reflexology is the application of pressure on reflexes in the feet, hands and ears, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body.
Reflexology is a “reflex” therapy that works with points on one part of the body to affect other parts of the body. Reflexology uses reflexes that are in an orderly arrangement resembling a shape of the human body on the feet, hands, and outer ears, using unique micro-movement techniques such as thumb or finger walking, and hook to create a response throughout the body. Reflexology is thought to relieve of tension, improve circulation and promote the natural function of the body.
Reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders but may complement other treatments when addressing conditions such as:
- cancer treatment
- cardiovascular issues
- kidney function
- digestive disturbances
Reflexology may assist in inducing labour at the end stages of pregnancy. We always recommend that you consult your obstetrician before seeing Leah for reflexology during pregnancy.
