Reflexology's coming to Adjust Massage

Categories: Reflexology

On January 19th, we’ve got a reflexologist starting with us at Adjust Massage. Her name’s Helen and she’ll be in the clinic on Mondays and Fridays.

Helen’s first career was as an athlete and she competed as a slalom canoeist at the highest level, winning a bronze medal in the 2004 Olympics. Due to numerous injuries throughout her career she became increasingly interested in complementary therapies. She found reflexology to be particularly valuable as it helped her to maintain the resilient mind and body she needed in order to be able to achieve her dreams.

Helen found reflexology so beneficial that she decided to train to be a reflexologist. She graduated with a Level 5 Mastership from the Reflexology Academy in London. Since then, Helen has also qualified in Advanced Reflexology Training (ART) and Orthopaedic Reflexology. 

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology, which is also known as zone therapy, is a holistic therapy that involves massaging the feet and hands with the aim of creating a state of relaxation in the recipient, as well as bringing their body into balance (i.e. restoring homeostasis) and stimulating the body’s healing processes.

Reflexologists believe that reflex points on the feet and hands correspond to organs, glands and other parts of the body. and that by applying pressure and massaging specific areas, they can help improve clients’ health and wellbeing.

What does Reflexology Involve?

During a reflexology session, the reflexologist will massage areas of the feet and hands that correspond to parts of the body that the client has identified as causing problems with their health.

The massage will involve the use of several techniques, including kneading, rubbing, applying pressure and manipulating the joints of each hand and foot. These methods allow the therapist to target the areas of tension in the body, which improves circulation and helps the body to start healing itself.

The pressure applied during reflexology should be firm but not painful as experiencing pain would stop the treatment from being relaxing.

Booking an Appointment

If you’d like to book an appointment with Helen, you can book online. Alternatively, if you’d like more information, please don’t hesitate to call or email us.
