WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?

Reflexology is a safe,  non-intrusive complementary health therapy,  based on the theory that different points on the feet,  lower legs,  hands,  face and ears correspond with different areas of the body.   

Modern reflexology is based on an ancient form of therapy.   There is evidence of foot and hand therapy being practised in China as long ago as 4,000 B.C. and also at the same time in Egypt,  as depicted in the tomb of Ankmahor. 

The dictionary definition of a “Reflex” is “an involuntary or instinctive movement in response to a stimulus” or in the sense of reflection or mirror image.   The reflexes on our feet and hands act as mirror images of the body.

Reflexologist's work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside conventional medicine to promote better health for them.


WHO CAN HAVE PURE REFLEXOLOGY?

Reflexology can be used to treat anyone at any age from a new-born baby to someone requiring end of life care.   It is rare for  individuals not be suitable  for treatment.

PURE Reflexology treatments are tailored to each clients specific needs and both physical and non-physical factors taken into consideration before treatment is given.


SO WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PURE REFLEXOLOGY?

PURE Reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally.   

With ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs.

Some of the benefits of PURE Reflexology include


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER REFLEXOLOGY?

Your PURE Reflexologist will offer you a glass of water and give you time to waken fully.   Do not expect a diagnosis but areas of imbalance will be discussed and after care advice given. The positive effects from the treatment may be instant or become apparent later.


HOW WILL YOU FEEL AFTER REFLEXOLOGY?

Usually,  after a treatment your tension will be much reduced and you will feel relaxed.   You may also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. You may also find that other aspects improve too; however, this happens on an individual basis.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER REFLEXOLOGY?

Just relax,  enjoy the rest of your day and instinctively follow your intuition.   If you feel thirsty - drink,  if you feel hungry – eat,  if you feel tired - have a nap or go to your bed early.   Clients often describe sleeping really well after a Reflexology treatment so prepare for it and enjoy it.   PURE recommend drinking extra water.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE REFLEXOLOGY?

Reflexology can benefit people of all ages and,  depending on the length of time a condition has been present,  can improve or eliminate many ailments during a course of four to six weekly treatments.

In essence, as often as you feel you need.
