We would like to announce and welcome our new reflexologist Lorraine who has started to work at our practice at GD Osteopathy & Sports Massage in Enfield. Lorraine has been a Holistic Therapist for over twenty years, practicing reflexology, Indian head massage amongst other therapies.
Reflexology is based on the principle that the anatomy of the body is reflected in miniature in specific zones on the feet, hands and ears. A reflexologist will apply pressure to these zones, which matches the area of the body the therapy aims to treat. This pressure is then believed to trigger the body’s own healing process in the corresponding area of the body. Although reflexologists work on only a small area of the body, the treatment works holistically on the whole.
The initial consultation will last roughly 1 hour as the therapist must first take your health history. You would then receive the treatment as the therapist works on the energy lines and reflex zones that pass through your feet. Sometimes there is a dramatic reaction to a first treatment such as increased bowel movements, cold symptoms or skin reaction. This usually indicates that the treatment is working.
