What is Reflexology?

Reflexology interrupts the pattern of stress in your body while supporting your physical and mental well-being. It aims to re-balance the body, improve sleep and mood, relieve stress and enhance well-being.

Research with nearly 4,000 participants – indicate that reflexology improves sleep!  /https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33615535/

Reflexology is based on the principal that reflex areas in the feet,hands and ears correspond to all organs, glands and parts of the body. The practice of Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt, India and China.

Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium.

  • Consider Reflexology if you have a health complaint that has not been resolved by conventional medical treatment or have learned to live with niggling problems because you feel nothing more can be done.
  • Many people use Reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress. Putting time aside for regular treatments in your busy schedule will help you to relax. The sense of well-being after a treatment may last for several days and could make a considerable difference to the way you are feeling.
  • Many people report that Reflexology has had a positive effect on their physical and mental health and continue to come along for treatments after their initial health issue has been resolved.

Reflexology is a gentle therapy so is suitable for all ages from babies to the elderly.

Christine has treated children, many with special needs and she is a member of CCTN (Children’s Complementary Therapy Network). Some children prefer Hand Reflexology and this is an option or a combination of both. Christine can use Vertical Reflex Therapy, an advanced system of Reflexology, working on the top of the feet or hands. So no one needs to miss out, it is great for everyone including those in wheelchairs.

reflexologyChristine has a special interest in Hormonal Imbalance – Reflexology can help support a menopausal woman physically, mentally and emotionally. It can help to restore balance to the Endocrine System (hormones). This in turn can help alleviate menopausal symptoms such as, hot flushes, mood swings, anxiety and sleep disturbances.

Some doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise Reflexology as a well established, respected and effective therapy. Reflexology should not be used as an alternative to seeking medical advice. Reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Each session of Reflexology works on an individual basis.

If you would like to make an appointment or perhaps discuss whether Reflexology would be suitable for your particular health issue, please get in contact with Christine.

My clinic is home based in Kirwee, Selwyn District, Canterbury. The practice is in a peaceful rural setting with views of the Southern Alps. I also have a clinic two days a week at a well-being clinic in Leeston.
