Massage involves working the soft tissue of the body, to ease day-to-day stresses and muscular tension, and promote relaxation. It helps to increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the treated areas and can also be used in support of other therapies to assist in the rehabilitation of muscular injuries.
What to expect
Jo or Laura will start by doing a consultation with you, asking about your health and lifestyle, to ensure reflexology is right for you.
For the treatment itself you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks and sitting comfortably in a reclining chair. Jo or Laura will then gently cleanse your feet before applying balm to the skin and massaging into your feet and ankles.
The areas treated and the pressure applied will be adapted to suit your individual needs.
Our relaxing foot massage is 20 minutes.
Benefits of massage
Massage is used by people for a variety of reasons. Some use it to simply relax and unwind, while others have regular massage to help them manage or cope with specific physical, mental or emotional problems.
Massage should not be used in place of conventional medical care. Always consult a GP or other health professional for medical attention and advice.
