The Reflexology Trail's Special Features.
Could reflexology be the treatment for you? Maybe it is something you would like to try once as a treat to yourself, or maybe you have a specific health issue and you would like to try the natural approach to managing your health and have heard that reflexology may help. Here is a summary of what Reflexology is and what my clients have to say about Reflexology:
Reflexology is a complementary health therapy, based on the theory that reflex points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas all over of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients meaning that they take into consideration all of the client's health concerns, lifestyle choices and individual needs. The treatment works alongside and aims to complement allopathic medicines and care to promote better health for clients. It involves a deeply relaxing massage to either the feet, face or hands. Click on the reflexology foot map (to the left or above) to see how the points on the feet correspond with areas on the body.
There are so many reasons that clients have reflexology that I simply would not have enough room to list them all. Many people come for regular sessions to manage their health, some people come every now and then and have a cluster of sessions and others come as a treat to themselves.
Most people fall asleep during the treatment and almost everyone reports feeling a deep sense of relaxation and having had a better sleep for the next few nights following their treatment.
Here is an example of some of my client's comments on Reflexology (and I thank them for their wonderful testimonials):
'I felt instantly relaxed at The Reflexology Trail'
'The Reflexology really helped and it was a very positive experience'
'I had been experiencing anxiety and panic attacks after some stressful episodes at work, I started to have reflexology and I felt so relaxed afterwards and my panic attacks stopped. Shibhan referred me to CBT to help me manage my reactions to stress and I feel so much better'
'I had been signed off of work due to stress and was feeling depressed and anxious. I looked forward to the treatments as they made me feel so much lighter and I slept better. I will continue to have regular reflexology treatments, I believe they contributed to helping me get back to work and manage my stress'.
'The treatment was incredibly relaxing. Every inch of my feet were worked on deeply and it felt amazing'
'I am already feeling the benefits from my initial treatment and am planning to book in for a facial reflexology session next time. I floated out, feeling refreshed and re-balanced'
'when I woke up I felt like I was floating and I was so chilled and relaxed. At 34.5 weeks pregnant not easy to do. It was my first but will not be my last!'
'As a person with very ticklish feet, I was initially worried it would feel uncomfortable, but can confirm it's not ticklish at all but an altogether very pleasant experience!!'
'I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome which gives rise to other physical and emotional conditions, some of them recurring and some ‘one-offs’. When I developed ‘tennis elbow’ I forgot to tell Shibhan about it and yet Shibhan identified and asked me about it from what she could ‘read’ from my feet, and this is just one example. My sessions have brought concrete relief for a number of symptoms'.
'I visited Shibhan after I had been told that it was very unlikely I would conceive naturally; before my partner and I started IVF treatment, I wanted to make sure I was in good health both physically and emotionally. I had a number of sessions with Shibhan and then found out I was pregnant. It was completely unexpected. Now I have reflexology to support my pregnancy and it is bliss.'
'I have suffered from Insomnia on and off for a number of years and after my first treatment with Shibhan I had the best night sleep I have had in years.'
'I have PCOS and hadn't had a period for almost 8 months, I had three sessions with Shibhan and have had two regular cycles and even my skin seems clearer', I plan to come back for some more.'
'I had reflexology with Shibhan throughout my pregnancy and it kept me feeling calm and prepared, especially leading up to the birth. I wanted a natural birth and Shibhan explained that reflexology may help keep stress low and let the body work naturally. I understood that reflexology didn't induce my pregnancy, but I did have a fairly text book labour and felt quite relaxed through the whole experience'
