websites are not exclusive to counselling, but support therapists trained in a wide range of specialisms, with reflexology being a key area of focus. Reflexology is a complementary therapy that can be used by practitioners independently or used alongside to complement other therapies. Reflexology is a therapy which has been known to offer relief to those suffering from tension and anxiety as well as promoting better sleep and an overall sense of wellbeing.
A reflexologist uses light or strong pressure on reflex points on the feet or hands, which are believed to mirror body organs and systems. Reflexology is a natural and non-invasive therapy that uses a holistic approach – mind, body and spirit. It is conducive to improved mood and relaxation, and is a safe and suitable therapy for use in maternity, often helping relieve the fatigue and exhaustion that can occur at this time in life. Equally, relief may be found from the emotional, mental and physical challenges experienced during menopause.
Reflexology is suitable for all ages, from babies to the elderly, and is a calming therapy. Reflexologists will explain how bringing the body back into harmony with itself can give the body a boost which will assist in many areas where disorder and inbalance manifest as physical symptoms. Because of the calming nature of reflexology and the fact it aims to promote well being within the body it has the potential to combine well with counselling.
