Reflexology is a very individual treatment and is often claimed to be a cure for many things, whilst many claims are purely based on anecdotal evidence there are some benefits that are universally acknowledged, with much evidence to back them up:
1. Improves circulation
Poor circulation often indicates other underlying health conditions. Long term poor circulation lead to health complications. Reflexology improves blood flow to vital organs. As blood flow improves, various organs and systems receive greater concentrations of oxygen and nutrition-rich blood.

One thing I am asked in my working capacity as a Reflexologist over and over again, is whether reflexology will cure a problem or a condition. It could be trying to conceive for a baby, or relieving pain, boosting a lowered immune system, going into labour, improving sex drive or energy levels, even losing weight (NB: there are claims that reflexology may help with all these).
The answer is always the same: 'it might help'. There are unfortunately no guarantees. You see, Reflexology is a very individual treatment which effects people in different ways, as every person is different so is the individual response.
I’ve written before about the importance of being
emotionally well and how all too often a physical symptom, like back pain, or
headaches are the result of negative emotions.
I often come across clients that have a very textured chest or heart
reflex. I ask the usual questions, have they had a chest infection? Suffer from
a heart condition? Or do they have asthma? If the answer is no, I then ask if they have they suffered from
great loss, like parents separating, a loved one dying or a betrayal, amazingly,
the answer is almost always yes.
Give your immune system a boost with Reflexology
The immune system is crucial to our wellbeing, it is responsible
for protecting the body from external influences that are harmful to the body
and facilitating the smooth flow of the interstitial fluids. It is the first line of defense for viruses,
diseases and illnesses. The immune
system identifies bacteria and pathogen cells and eliminates them, it also is
responsible for removing waste matter.
When our immune system is under pressure the smooth flow of
fluids in our body can be effected and often get blocked, this can lead to a
weakness in our immune system.
Aromatherapy is a way of keeping well, naturally. It is an ages-old therapy originating out
of herbalism. The word 'Aromatherapy' is a relatively new word for a
very ancient form of treatment using essential oils which have been
extracted from aromatic plants for the promotion and maintenance of physical
and emotional health and wellbeing.
Essential oils possess different biological properties such as anti-inflammatory,
sedative, digestive, antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant Extensive
research into Essential Oils is currently being undertaken as an alternative
to western medicine.
An old Indian yoga teacher once
told me that in order to remain healthy I must get up half an hour before the
rest of my family to do my yoga breathing. Anyone with kids will understand why
I laughed in his face. 'why do you laugh?', he asked genuinely puzzled, 'I've
got kids', I retorted, he paused and smiled knowingly ‘Even more reason to take
time to do this’, he answered gently, his kind eyes sparkling as those of a man
in his twenties (he was almost 70), ‘if you are not fit and well’, he
continued, ‘how can you care for your family?
couples it is an emotional and physical roller coaster to achieve a viable
pregnancy. The trend for couples starting a family later in life, often
in the their 30’s or 40’s, coupled with day to day pressures, not forgetting
environmental factors such as pollution and pesticides, has seen a huge
increase in fertility problems. In many social groups there is still an
assumption that the cause of infertility lies with the woman – despite the fact
that4 out of 10 cases of infertility is
on the male side.
