Reflexology

Reflexology is the safe, non-invasive, application of pressure to acupoints on the face, ears, hands and feet to unblock, rebalance and strengthen disturbed energy pathways.

It is based on ancient Indian and Chinese wisdom where the belief that there are energy channels or meridians that contain our “life-force” or “Chi” run throughout the whole of our body.

It is believed that when these energy meridians are “blocked” we may experience dis-ease which we can see through mental and physical symptoms. Reflexology encourages your body to go into a deeply relaxed state so that your body’s natural healing mechanism can be activated and start functioning at an optimum. It is this relaxed state that scientists believe turns our “healing genes” are turned on.

Since, Reflexology is merely putting the body back into a healing state it is a safe treatment for all most everyone to receive as an all over body treatment. It is a safe treatment to give throughout your pregnancy although we prefer to start doing reflexology from 12 weeks of pregnancy where.  our focus is directed in helping you remove metabolic waste products which we all naturally produce. This helps to reduce symptoms such as nausea, bloating, constipation and pelvic congestion and secondly to assist with pain relief and any hormonal imbalances.

Reflexology is especially useful when your baby is due to encourage the onset of your labour. Once in labour reflexology can encourage ideal conditions that can help speed the labour up and assist and an easier birth. After the birth of you baby reflexology can be used to rebalance your bodies hormones.

Facial Reflexology

Eventhough though facial reflexology is new in the West it has been used to treat people extensively in South America, India and China.

The Lone Sorenson Face Reflexology Method is a blend of these two ancient wisdoms. It is a simple yet elegant modern technique that is not only therapeutic but is also wonderful to receive.

Since the face is close to the brain this treatment has a direct access to treating underlying brain mechanisms unlike other forms of reflexology that require the use of the spinal cord as an interface to stimulate healing mechanisms in the body. This makes facial reflexology a rapid and very powerful treatment.

Facial reflexology is particularly safe in the early stages of pregnancy since there are no downward projection of energy towards the feet. Surprisingly, it is easily accepted by children and which makes it an extremely safe treatment not only for pregnancy but for children so can be an ideal treatment for neurological conditions such as epilepsy and ADHD.

Special indications for face reflexology are:

  • stress and anxiety – high blood pressure, eczema, psoriasis, etc
  • neurological disorders – epilepsy and ADHD
  • infertility and hormonal imbalances – PMT and menopausal symptoms
