Aroma Reflexology

A relaxing treatment combining the benefits of reflexology and essential oils. For each individual a cream is made with a specific blend of essential oils for your personal health & well-being. This is used during the reflexology treatment and then is ready to take away for home-care.

Reflexology is a relaxing holistic treatment that is based on ancient methods and reflexes on the feet that relate to different areas of the body. The reflexologist will use their hands to apply pressure on the reflex points, with the aim to rebalance the mind, body and soul, and stimulate the body’s own natural healing ability.

Before the first treatment you will need to complete a consultation form about your health, medical history (past and present) and lifestyle. To get the most from the treatment be sure to provide as much information as possible. This information will be kept confidential. Aroma Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that may be affecting your wellbeing.

To begin the treatment you will need to remove your shoes and socks and relax into a comfortable position. The reflexologist will start the treatment by warming up your feet using your own personal cream and gentle massage, they will then work on the reflex points using varied pressure techniques with their fingers and thumbs. Many people experience deep relaxation and can sleep through the treatment. Some may experience sensations in their body, such as tingling, warmth or a feeling of released tension as the corresponding reflex points are worked on. It is also possible to feel some tenderness on the area of the foot itself.

After treatment most people note a sense of well-being, relaxation, revitalisation or relief such as a cleared headache and will also enjoy a good night’s sleep. A common side effect is an increased number of visits to the toilet as reflexology encourages the elimination of toxins from the body so it is advisable to drink plenty of water after a session to assist the removal of toxins. Some can experience other symptoms up to 24 hours after such as tiredness, slight head ache or cold, more emotional and these are temporary.
