Reflexology Massage Therapy

What Is Reflexology?: Sometimes called ‘zone therapy’ or ‘reflex massage’, reflexology massage therapy is a non-invasive complementary and well-being therapy based on the theory that all parts of the body are mirrored in smaller areas on the hands, feet, and face, and ears. Supportive touch in these areas can provide relief or healing at the desired point.

Like other therapies derived from traditional Chinese medicine, reflexology believes that your life energy (Qi), or ‘vital energy’ should flow freely through your body and that blockages in your Qi lead to imbalances in your body that lead to illness and distress. It works on your energy pathways in a similar way to acupuncture.

What does reflexology do?: Reflexologists use carefully calibrated pressure on your hands, feet, face, and ears to direct healing energy through your body to the affected area. They will ask you about your health and your lifestyle before they begin, and you will usually be lying down or in a reclining chair for this treatment.

Many people report feeling a deep sense of relaxation and well-being during and after treatment. Reflexology massage may help to

  • reduce stress
  • reduce pain
  • anxiety & depression
  • lift mood
  • boost their immune system
  • correct hormonal imbalances
  • improve general wellbeing

What Is Reflexology Good For?

What to expect from reflexology: Reflexologists do not diagnose or treat the actual illnesses themselves, instead, it can be used alongside traditional care, but only as a complementary treatment, it’s not an alternative to it. The process is an individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person.

We want you to feel able to discuss any questions or worries with your wellbeing therapist. This is important in order for you to progress in your well-being therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Reflexology?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping them deal with their personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in their life, and understand themselves better.

So what are therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, and different types of behavioural disorders, to human sexuality issues and a host of well-being and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological well-being and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.
