Island Reflexology offers Reflexology and Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage
What is Reflexology? This treatment is based on the theory that the feet provide a map of the whole body, so the toes reflect the head, the ball of the foot reflects the chest and the arch of the foot mirrors the digestive organs.
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy. I work holistically with my clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for my clients. Reflexology is beneficial for cognitive heath, stimulates blood circulation, helps to improve the body's metabolism, flushes toxins and overall relaxation as well as issues such as headaches, asthma, anxiety, back, neck & knee problems, insomnia, stress, depression, hormone in-balance, fibromyalgia and MS. Reflexology is the absolute best tonic to encourage sleep!!
Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage - RLD
RLD is an award winning Reflexology technique which focuses on stimulating the lymphatic system reflexes on the feet. Unlike our cardiovascular system, our lymphatics rely solely on bodily movement for the fluid to move. It plays a key role in our body's immune system, by targeting the key areas of the feet corresponding to the lymphatics, is a very effective way of stimulating the body's own response to reduce swelling, clear out toxins and blockages and boost our ability to fight infection.
This unique sequence has been researched and developed by Sally Kay BSc (Hons), whilst working in Cancer Care, and throughout her research she discovered that RLD had a significant effect on the reduction of swelling and the drainage of fluid with patients suffering with lymphedema.
