What is reflexology?
Foot reflexology is an established alternative healing technique that’s been practised for centuries in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America. One popular theory is that reflexology originated in China up to 5000 years ago. As to the way it works, theories range from the stimulation of nerve endings at the body’s extremities to a more mystical belief that reflexology corrects imbalances in ‘life energy’.
According to some sources, the therapy was introduced to Western society in the early twentieth-century by a Dr William Fitzgerald who worked in ear, nose and throat medicine. Based on his observations that pressure applied to patients’ feet caused beneficial responses elsewhere in their bodies, he divided the body into ten zones and created the first reflexology chart. Reflexology and foot massage is now a recognised part of alternative therapy – and readily available at Ilmio Beauty conveniently-located in Pembrokeshire.
How does reflexology
Reflexology is based on the idea that reflexes in your feet (and hands too) are related to every body part, organ and gland in your body. At Ilmio Beauty,with an award winning therapist a leading centre for reflexology in Pembrokeshire, you’ll enjoy attentive pressure point massage for the feet, which detects tiny deposits and imbalances. If you’ve never experienced the bliss of professional foot massage technique, you’re in for a wonderful treat.
By working on these points I can release blockages and restore your whole body's energy. . When you are unwell, recovering from illness or suffering from stress, the pathways through which energy flows become imbalanced- which exerts a negative effect on you and the way in which you function. A course of reflexology aims to release release those blockages in the flow of energy to restore your body to its ideal state. The benefits of reflexology include the following: it relaxes, balances & harmonises the body; strengthens the entire body and supports the body in its own healing process: provides an opportunity to de-stress & release tension; helps you to maintain a good general health by relieving the body of toxins; encourages a healthy immune system to fight infection
At the start of your appointment, I will ask you questions to help me understand how you’re feeling. Based on what you tell me, I’ll apply pressure to your feet, guided by my experience, knowledge and the reflexology foot map.
For maximum benefit, a course of reflexology foot massage treatment is recommended (each session lasts 45 minutes). You can focus on reflexology and foot massages alone, or you might like to make your treatment part of a whole therapy package.
