Reflexology Treatments at Naturally Heaven Therapy, Benton, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Performed on the feet, Foot Reflexology is a holistic therapy and works on the principle that all of the energy meridians of the body are represented in the feet, together with many nerve endings that also relate to much of the body and organs. Working on these reflexes restores imbalances in the body and promotes physical, mental and emotional health.
What Can I Expect From a Reflexology Treatment?
After an initial short consultation, you will be asked to lie fully clothed on a treatment couch. You will be asked to remove your shoes & socks and any tight items purely for your own comfort and relaxation.
During a Reflexology treatment, gentle but firm pressure is applied to the feet together with soothing foot massage to break up crystalline deposits that “block” the meridian energy flow, which affects the corresponding part of the body or organ. You will end the treatment with heavenly feet.
