Reflexology and Massage Therapy in Croydon


About Reflexology
REFLEXOLOGY is a specialised type of hand/ foot massage. The reflexologist will use her hands to stimulate certain points/ reflexes that have been "mapped out onto" the hands/feet. This encourages a flow of energy to its corresponding body part, which in turn encourages the body to rebalance itself/ activates the healing process. It is a very relaxing treatment that helps to calm and relax both the body and the mind. It does not claim to cure but rather helps the body to heal itself. It is not a diagnostic treatment. As this treatment requires no clothing to be removed besides socks and shoes it is ideal for children and helps to reinforce positive touch. Reflexology can be used safely alongside standard healthcare to promote better health for clients.

What Conditions Can Reflexology Help?
It is considered to be a " balancing treatment" and seems to work well for any condition involving congestion and/or inflammation. For example:
Headaches/ migraine,
Sinus problems
Skin problems like eczema
Digestive problems like IBS
Period and infertility problems

As a treatment it is deeply relaxing working well to calm anxiety. Reducing stress in people’s lives can be key in optimising good health and building resilience.

REFLEXOLOGY LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (RLD) is a reflexology technique that focuses on stimulating the lymphatic reflexes. This sequence has been developed and researched by Sally Kay while she was working in cancer care. I have been fortunate enough to be trained by Sally and have found that RLD has added a whole new dimension to my work.
It is a very gentle treatment which aims to stimulate/activate the lymphatic system which has numerous functions some of which included destroying damaged cells, fighting infection and removing excess fluid from body tissue.
In addition to its great success in improving secondary lymphodema, RLD may also benefit autoimmune conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions such as premenstrual syndrome.
There is no cure for lymphodema however simple steps can be taken to help limit it from developing or getting worse, these include skincare, mild exercise, compression, MLD and RLD.
