Although foot massage as a healing aid has been practised for thousands of years in the East, it only became known in the West early in the 20th century, and was introduced to the UK in the 1960s. Today, Reflexology is one of the most popular and widely available complementary therapies. It is thought that different areas on the feet (or zones), correspond to different organs or parts of the body, the right foot relating to the right side of the body and the left foot relating to the left side of the body. The hands are linked in a similar way and can also be worked on. Within the body there are a series of energy channels, or pathways, through which our vital energy flows, maintaining optimum health or wellbeing. These channels can easily become blocked as a result of stress, illness or injury, resulting in imbalances in our system. This makes it harder for the body to heal itself. A trained Reflexologist will massage the feet, using mainly the thumbs to gently apply pressure to the different areas, and will be able to detect any imbalances that may be present in the body. Sometimes tiny deposits or tender spots are noticed - these points indicate problem areas within the body and are then worked on to restore balance and allow the energy to flow freely once more. Reflexology is a safe, natural and very relaxing therapy to receive, improving both circulation and elimination, whilst encouraging the body to heal itself. It can be very effective for a wide range of conditions ranging from migraine, sinus trouble to back or joint pain and digestive disorders. It is important to only receive treatment from a qualified and registered practitioner, as extra care is needed when treating certain medical conditions. A reflexologist should spend some time talking with you prior to starting treatment, in order to assess your needs, as each treatment is tailored to the individual.   To Search for a Reflexologist in the North West, please go to our Holistic Therapists’ Directory Listings Our Therapists’ Directory covers these North West areas:  Cumbria, Lancashire, Gtr Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside, Wirral & North Wales.
