Reflexology at Oscailt

Dating back to Ancient Egypt, reflexology is the practice of treating reflex points in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Each organ and structure within the body is linked to the feet by energy channels or meridians. When our physical or emotional health is weakened or compromised by illness or stress, these channels become blocked or congested. Reflexology can be used very effectively to facilitate the free flow of energy and thus restore the body to its more natural state of health and well-being. By applying gentle pressure and using specific techniques and movements, reflexology can both identify and support the areas of the body which are in need of strengthening and healing. Although the feet are more usually treated, the hands may be equally effectively worked with.

The Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology is suitable for all ages and stages of life. It is a gentle, non-invasive therapy which may bring relief from a wide range of both acute and chronic conditions as well as working more preventatively in helping the body to maintain overall health and well-being. Specific conditions which are known to benefit from reflexology include:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety and Stress related issues
  • Asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and other respiratory problems
  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Chronic Fatigue and general exhaustion
  • Digestive disorders including irritable bowel, colitis, gastritis and constipation
  • Headaches
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Immune disorders
  • Infertility
  • Menstrual irregularities including pain levels and PMT
  • Migraine
  • Pregnancy and post partum symptoms
  • Urinary problems
  • Vertigo

More generally, reflexology helps to:

  • reduce stress
  • promote relaxation
  • increase vitality
  • improve circulation
  • eliminate toxins
  • reduce pain levels
  • strengthen the immune system
  • restore and maintain the body?s natural equilibrium

It is important to note that reflexology is not a diagnostic tool but may be used very effectively both in its own right to treat existing medical conditions and also to support and complement other treatments and therapies.
