Reflexology in Southampton has grown rapidly recently. Many people are turning to this form of alternative medicine to help with many different ailments, both minor and major.
Reflexology is the act of applying pressure to feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. The belief behind reflexology is that your body is split into a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect on specific parts of your hands, feet and ears. By applying pressure to specific points, it is thought that reflexology can provide pain relief and cure certain medical conditions.
The Reflexology Association of Canada defines reflexology as: “A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areas within zone related areas, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, crèmes or lotions, the feet being the primary area of application, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.”
In the United Kingdom, reflexology is coordinated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). Registrants are required to meet Standards of Proficiency outlined by Profession Specific Boards. Fiona has held registration with the CNHC for over 5 years.
