Professional Reflexology Membership (PRM) is a mark of the highest standards of training, ethics and reflexology achievable by a UK Reflexologist. By maintaining membership criteria above all other Associations it gives status to our members and confidence to clients that their treatments will be competent, safe and professional.

All the articles below are open to the public, please enjoy and remember:
When you choose a Reflexologist make certain that they have PRM after their name.

What is Reflexology?

what is reflexology
Reflexology can be many things to many people.
But please don't think of it as a foot massage.
Reflexology is a precise complementary therapy, not to be confused with beauty treatment.  Nor thought of as an alternative to conventional medicine, but as complementary to any medical treatment being received.

Reflexologists believe that the feet reflect the body and that all the organs and glands are represented somewhere on the feet. By applying gentle pressure to the feet in an accurate and well formulated manner we believe that we are working indirectly with each and every area of the body. By doing so our aim is to help create the conditions in which our clients own powerful healing system can work to the best of its ability.

With Reflexology all aspects of the client are taken into account to help with overall well-being. Put simply holistic means 'whole'. You have probably heard the expression 'Mind, Body and Spirit', and it easily follows that if the physical body is unwell or in pain, for example if you were suffering from migraine, then the mind will not be as sharp as you might wish and your spirits will be low as a result.

Professional Reflexologists therefore believe that your treatment should always be holistic in order to maintain a balance in these interlinked areas. To a reflexologist each and every area, organ and gland of the body is reflected somewhere in the feet. By applying gentle finger and thumb pressure to work with these reflexes, any imbalances will be felt by the skilled practitioner and in this way they are able to discover which are in need of particular attention. By using these special skills the reflexologist aims to return the body's systems to a natural state of balance, working together at their best, and encouraging the recipients own natural healing capabilities. At the end of your treatment your reflexologist will be able to advise you as to a suitable course of treatment.

However, please do not expect a reflexologist to diagnose. It is strictly against our code of ethics to do so. Reflexology may reduce stress by helping a client to relax, and it is thought that over 80% of illnesses can be related to stress. Reflexology, in the hands of a well trained and properly qualified practitioner, a Professional Reflexologist, is perhaps the most powerful of all complementary therapies, and whilst no properly qualified reflexologist will ever claim to cure, experience shows that very positive benefits may be gained through the use of this therapy.

Professor_Angela_HobbsIn Praise of Reflexology: a Client's Experience
Prof. Angie Hobbs PhD FRSA

As a Professor in Philosophy, I approached reflexology twenty years ago with some wariness. I have a PhD in Ancient Philosophy from the University of Cambridge and I am not, I think, at all 'suggestible'. I am trained in rational scepticism; I like to see a strong argument based on evidence.

Reflexology For Sinuses (A Client's Persepctive)

Every month I pay a lady to handle my feet! My wife is of the opinion that I don't pay her anywhere near what she deserves. She wouldn't touch them at any price! Now strangely enough, I agree with my wife, but for very different reasons.

This lady is a reflexologist and has now been treating me regularly for over ten years. Why, you may ask. I'll tell you! Because my sinuses were in a terrible mess!
