Just as in foot reflexology we see the body mapped out across the feet, we can also see the same in hand reflexology. This makes it the perfect alternative for people who, for whatever reason, can’t have foot reflexology or want to perform reflexology on themselves, at any time and in any place. Knowing how to perform hand reflexology gives you a powerful tool that you can take with you everywhere you go. It can be used to manage pain, mental health challenges, and diagnosed conditions. That is not to say that it should be used as a standalone treatment, but can add a string to the bow of us taking responsibility for our own health needs. Other benefits of hand reflexology include:
- Symptom alleviating
- Emotionally balancing
- Immune and circulatory system boosting
- Pain relieving
- Detoxifying and cleansing
- Revitalising and energising
- Helpful for allergies and sinus problems
- Stimulates the healing response of the organs in the body
- Can improve conditions that typically affect the hands and wrists like arthritis and carpel tunnel syndrome
- Assists in the maintenance of manual dexterity
- Rejuvenates tired or overused hands, helping them feel softer and more supple and flexible
What happens during a treatment?
During a treatment, pressure sensors in the hands are stimulated which prompts a reflexive response throughout the body. Techniques applied to specific areas of the hands trigger a relaxation response in the corresponding body part. Treatments last approximately 30 minutes and take place in a calm and comfortable environment. No oils or creams need to be applied during a treatment but if you would like a moisturiser applied afterwards then my preference is to use Neal’s Yard products. It is important to inspect your hands before you book in for a treatment – if you have open wounds, warts or ganglion cysts then please wait until these have healed before you come. If you have any questions or would like to book in for a treatment then please get in touch. You can find my contact details on the contact page.
