Please check your details to make sure that they are correct. It will only take a couple of moments do so, and it would be a shame not to take advantage of these free benefits giving such great publicity for your practice.

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 a beauty treatment.  Nor thought of as an alternative to conventional medicine, but as complementary to any medical treatment being received.

 A Significant Decrease in PMS Symptoms

pmt pms reflexology 250A controlled study* carried out among a group of volunteers who had previously complained of distress from PMS symptoms has shown a significant decrease in these symptoms following reflexology treatment.

Taking place in California, the study ran over six months with the participants recording their symptoms, both physical and psychological, throughout. During the middle two months, the volunteers were divided into two groups each of these being treated by qualified reflexologists; however, individuals in one group received eight 'genuine' reflexology treatments and the other group eight placebo treatments. Within the placebo group, the therapists worked with areas not relevant to the treatment of this condition. Both groups believed that they were receiving genuine reflexology.

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

angie hobbs

Prominent British Philosopher, Prof. Angie Hobbs gives us a fascinating insight into her reflexology journey... 

"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.
So at my first session, when my reflexologist asked me about my symptoms and medical history, I said that I should prefer to say nothing and see what she diagnosed during the treatment...

 Hagar Basis: Reflexology and Fertility Issues

Hagar Basis 250x250

Hagar Basis,
principal of the PR Affiliated Reflexology Academy in London recently talked with the Israeli Reflexology Association about her approach to reflexology and fertility issues. 

Hagar teaches internationally and last year was a speaker at the Reflexology in Europe Network (RiEN) Conference in Brussels, and later this year she will be speaking in Taiwan at the ICR conference once again presenting  Reflexology for Women’s Health. 

1. Is conventional medicine in England being supportive of alternative medicine and specifically reflexology in case of fertility issues?

Complementary and alternative medicines (CAMs) like reflexology are treatments that fall outside of mainstream healthcare in the UK. Complementary therapies in NHS (National Health System) hospitals are usually provided free by volunteering therapists.

I Believe Reflexology Really Helped My Bell's Palsy

Olivia 250

For anyone who has had it, you know how scary it can be. Luckily for me, I’m aware of the condition and diagnosed myself rather quickly. I couldn’t close my eye, lift my lips to smile or feel the left side of my tongue. A virus causes the trigeminal nerve to stop working, basically, causing facial paralysis and the face to drop.

Scary, but not life-threatening!

Day One wasn’t fun...You don’t know how much you use your facial muscles until they no longer work. Eating, drinking, pouting (no selfies for me for a while...) were all extremely difficult. My words were slurred, ironically the hardest thing to say was “Bell’s Palsy.” I couldn’t blink, causing my eye to dry up making it difficult to see.

Reflexology and Fertility

Reflexology For FertilityThere's no doubt that treatments for infertility and subfertility can be emotionally exhausting, highly stressful, and also very expensive. Reflexologist Natasha Ellison suggests that reflexology may help. Fertility expert Zita West estimates that one in six couples face issues when trying for a baby – and the number having problems conceiving is growing.

There can be many reasons that may hamper falling pregnant, but often women find themselves in the frustrating situation of not being given any specific cause for their conception issues, despite the various medical tests and assessment they have undergone. Understandably this can cause great stress and a Catch-22 situation: a pregnancy won't occur until you relax, which is nearly impossible because you're worried you can't get pregnant. Worry and anxiety over not being able to have children can create very physical conditions that prevent conception.

I wish I had Taken my Reflexologist More Seriously

i wish i had taken my reflexologist seriously
Seven years ago I was visiting my reflexologist at six weekly intervals, which I fully believe kept my whole body working correctly, and without pain. This was following decades, pre reflexology, of back problems, chiropractors, acupuncture, etc. when stress was causing the muscles to tighten and 'pull' my back out! I was enjoying life again, swimming and dancing, caring for my grandchild of five years, with the lifting that entails, all without a problem.

Is it all in the mind?

All Reflexologists have heard this said at one time or another.
'There is no scientific proof' is another. But are they right?

It is true to say that the bulk of evidence in favour  of reflexology is anecdotal, nevertheless, there is an increasing body of scientific evidence

Reflexology and Hay Fever

hay feverreflexology

Most of us look forward to spring and the promise of summer
 but to others, it can be miserable because of Hay Fever.

Some get minor symptoms whilst others can be confined to home with the windows closed. Runny nose, sore itchy eyes; sneezing and wheezing, hay fever can ruin your summer.

It can bring on sinus problems and trigger asthma. Hay Fever is now so common that during the summer months weather reports are accompanied by a pollen count prediction often sponsored by a brand of anti-histamine preparation But for those of us who prefer a complementary approach what can we do?

Reflexology For Sinuses (A Client's Perspective)

 reflexology sinus
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!
