Reflexology is based on the principle that all areas of the body are linked to specific areas ('reflex-points') of the feet and the hands. At our clinic for reflexology in Birmingham, our reflexologists can stimulate the reflex-points, while aiming to reduce stress, and to encourage your body's natural healing & wellbeing abilities to become stronger and more effective.
The history and basis for reflexology
Ancient paintings have been found which suggest that reflexology type treatments were practised by Egyptians around 4000 years ago. It is noted that in 4th century B.C China, Dr Wang-Wei used the benefits of acupuncture with needles and the application of pressures to the soles of the feet using the thumbs, in order to treat patients. He believed the therapeutic effects noted were due to the release of healing energy through the patient’s body. At our practice for reflexology in Birmingham we respect traditional aspects of the treatment, while being mindful of current research & developments.
Reflexology as we know it today was founded by Eunice Ingham, a physiotherapist, who through experimentation, produced maps of the feet that showed the areas and organs of the body where there appear to be links for reflexology treatment purposes. The benefits of reflexology that Ingham particularly noticed were the speeding-up of the body’s healing processes after surgery, and a decrease in the perception of pain. In 1930s America she set-up a private clinic, where due to the success of her treatments, people would travel from all over the country.
Therapeutic effects of reflexology
An important factor in the success of reflexology lies in its ability to reduce or control stress. At the Well Naturally practice for reflexology in Birmingham we recognise that prolonged stress may contribute to the development or severity of illness, both physical and emotional. We offer reflexology as one of a number of gentle non-invasive therapies believed to be supportive & beneficial in our busy lives. At our practice for reflexology in Birmingham, treatments can be used to target conditions whether through the belief that it restores healthy energy flows, the idea that it can stimulate the nerve pathways, or through its relaxing and de-stressing qualities.
About reflexology treatments
A reflexology treatment typically lasts around an hour. The frequency of treatments varies according to the nature and severity of any conditions being treated, but is usually somewhere between weekly and monthly. Often the frequency of reflexology treatments is reduced as the client makes progress. Your reflexologist at our practice for reflexology in Birmingham will advise you regarding this, while suggesting an appropriate treatment programme.
Illness is not a pre-requisite to having treatments, at our practice for reflexology in Birmingham they can be relaxing and enjoyable, and many clients have a treatment perhaps monthly to help encourage and maintain a state of general wellbeing.
