Reflextherapy is a term that describes treatment that is applied to pressure points, mainly in the feet, but also in other areas including the hands, head and ears.
It is an approach that has developed form the ancient knowledge that the body is reflected in miniature within those areas.
Gentle pressure on the points can promote deep relaxation and pain relief, and can encourage the healing process. After treatment patients often report a significant feeling of well being, an improvement in energy levels and vitality, relief from discomfort and often improved sleep patterns.
The conditions that can be helped with Reflextherapy include acute or chronic back and neck pain, arthritis, soft tissue and sports injuries, migraine and headaches, stress/ stress related disorders and chronic fatigue. It can also be very helpful in terminal care.
As with all other physiotherapy approaches, each client is individually assessed to ascertain their suitability for the treatment. It can be carried out on its own, or as an adjunct to other physiotherapy techniques.
In addition, self help techniques can also be taught, so that the treatment can be continued at home.
