Reflexologyby Amber jenkins in Gourock

A holistic complementary health therapy to encourage the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance…

Treat yourself, not just your symptoms...

Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive holistic therapy that can encourage the body as a whole to rebalance and heal.

Earliest evidence of this ancient art can be seen in an Egyptian tomb known as the ‘physician’s tomb’ which dates back to approximately 2330BC however modern reflexology wasn’t introduced to the UK until 1966 by Doreen Bayly.

Reflexology is based on the theory that the body can be rebalanced and kickstarted to heal itself through areas known as reflexes. These reflexes are most commonly treated on the feet and hands and it is believed that the reflexes correspond to areas of the body. See map below. The body can become off balance through physical, emotional and psychological factors and by applying pressure directly to the reflexes balance can be restored by initiating the body’s own natural healing processes.

Foot Reflexology Chart


Prior to a reflexology session, a medical history is required to ensure no contraindications.

Foot reflexology is generally the most popular form of reflexology and often where the reflexes are easier to detect. On arrival, the client is required to remove footwear and made comfortable in a reclining chair. The treatment begins with a relaxing massage followed by applying direct pressure to the reflexes with thumb and finger movements. The pressure is tailored to the individual from gentle to firm. While working on the feet imbalances can be detected and treated.

The treatment lasts approximately 1 hour during which time many clients are so relaxed they drift off to sleep while others prefer to enjoy the time chatting or discussing their health issues.
