Reflexology

reflexologyI provide Reflexology treatment to clients in Counties Longford, Cavan, Leitrim and Westmeath.

Reflexology is a specific pressure treatment applied to the feet or hands, where all the internal body structure are mapped or mirrored in miniature. This therapy is based on the long established principle that there are energy zones which run throughout the body and reflex areas in the hands and feet that correspond to all major organs, glands and body parts. The body is designed to heal itself and has this full potential within.

Reflexology treats the whole body making it a truly holistic treatment working to bring the body into balance. It is a result of this balancing effect that the various complaints may be eased.

Reflexology and Cancer Patients

Following medical consent this training will allow her to work with cancer patients. In the past 10 years or so Reflexology has become one of the most popular complementary therapies used by those suffering from cancer. Reflexology can have a positive effect on their lifestyle, helping with the side effects of treatments, mood and energy levels. It enhances feelings of relaxation and helps improve sleep. We will update this section at a later date.
