Reflexology is an ancient Eastern healing tradition based on the principle that all parts of our body are connected by energy pathways which end in our feet, hands and head.
A reflexology treatment uses gentle pressure massage on specific areas of the feet to stimulate the healing in the corresponding organs, glands and structures. This releases areas of tension and so enables energy to flow more freely throughout your body.
Reflexology is very relaxing and provides an excellent way of releasing stress and tension. It can also help with conditions including irritable bowel syndrome, PMT and hormonal imbalance, insomnia, muscular and skeletal aches and pains, migraine and respiratory problems. Regular reflexology has also been found to be of great benefit to couples with infertility concerns.
The Bowen technique is an extremely gentle bodywork treatment aimed at helping the body balance and re-align itself on many levels.
In a Bowen session a series of light moves are applied to specific places on the body, either on the skin or through light clothing. Moves are made on skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments nerves and fascia. The moves work through the fascia and nervous system to help your body to retrieve it’s memory of a relaxed and balanced state of being. During the treatment there will be a series of short breaks where the client is left resting. These rest periods are an important part of the treatment and give the body time to make the subtle adjustments which help to re-balance, relieve tension and reduce pain.
Reflexology and Bowen Therapy appointments are provided on an ad-hoc basis, by mutual agreement between the client, our reflexologist and the clinic. Please contact Vicki Ball our reflexologist by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss an appointment.
