What Is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a physical therapy technique that applies gentle pressure to your feet to bring about a state of relaxation and help the body’s own healing process.

Reflexology works in a similar way to acupressure and acupuncture, where certain points on the feet are thought to correspond to the organs and glands in the body. By pressing and massaging these points, energy pathways are stimulated in the body. If any energy pathways are blocked reflexology aims to unblock them, allowing the energy to flow freely again thus restoring balance.

How Could Reflexology Help Me?

Having reflexology is deeply relaxing and aids peaceful sleep and hormone regulation (in particular, stress hormones).  It works on your body to help relax the hips and pelvis, shoulders and spine – many people feel this helps their enjoyment of sex.  It works on your mind to help induce a deep state of relaxation which can help you better cope with adversity.

We take a very gentle approach to reflexology, particularly if you’re having IVF where a wholly supportive and nurturing approach is needed, and our patients consistently report feeling calm, positive and uplifted after treatment.
