WHAT IS REFLEXOLOGY?
Reflexology Restores and Maintains the Body's Natural Balance and Encourages Healing


Reflexology is an ancient form of foot Massage practiced by man for many thousands of years. It is based on the belief that our bodies are reflected in miniature in our feet. Dr William Fitzgerald introduced this therapy in the west in 1913. He discovered that pressure on specific areas of the body could have an anaesthetising effect on a related area. Stimulating areas of the feet, in turn, stimulates the corresponding part of the body.

Reflexology encourages the body to heal itself at it’s own pace and helpts to ease tension and improve circulation. This gentle therapy works on the whole body, helping to balance the body, mind and spirit.

CAN ANYONE HAVE REFLEXOLOGY
Yes — it is a very safe and effective treatment for all age groups. It can bring relief to a wide range of conditions and promotes the body’s own natural healing processes

A VARIETY OF CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED INCLUDING:
    BACKPAIN STRESS
    TENSION
    SINUS PROBLEMS INFERTILITY
    MIGRAINE
    I BS
    INSOMNIA


THE TREATMENT
A Reflexology treatment is carried out by a trained practitioner, gently applying pressure to the reflexes of the feet (or in some cases the hand) which relates to each and every part of the body. The Practitioner will take time looking at your past and present etc. and discuss a programme of treatments tailored to your needs.

After the treatment:
Reaction to the treatment is individual many people have a feeling of well being and relaxation, others feel full of energy. Some experience adverse reactions like a headache. These are positive reactions and show how powerful Reflexology is in bringing about change. Adverse side effects like these are part of the healing process and do not last long. It is advised that you drink plenty of fluids, especially water, to detoxify the system. Rest if you feel tired this is what your body is telling you to do.




WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
Perhaps it’s worth explaining the definition of hypnosis. Hypnosis, or the hypnoidal state as it is more properly known, is merely a state of altered consciousness and we enter it nearly all the time.One of the simplest examples to offer is daydreaming, which we’ve all done, where we suddenly blink or shake our head a we realise we were “miles away” but have now come back to reality.

Clearly then there are different areas of consciousness. There’s the busy active part taking in what’s happening around us and responding to it but there’s also the subconscious part, working away in the background, keeping everything else on track while the conscious part is preoccupied.

It’s the subconscious that holds all the information about who we are, what we are, what we’ve experiences as individuals and the motivations that make us do what we do during our life. If any of them is not as we would wish then it’s the subconscious we need to talk to, not the conscious area. What we need to do is to communicate directly with the subconscious where all our beliefs and motivations reside if we want to bring about change.

What we do in hypnosis is to bypass the conscious by quieting it down so that it doesn’t get in the way of us communicating with the subconscious. So hypnosis deliberately alters our state of consciousness so that we can do this.

Why should I choose Hypnotherapy?
Because the patient is not actually asleep during a hypnotherapy session they are fully aware of what is happening and what is being said. Therefore, if a suggestion is made which is against their own ethics or morals they will not take it on board. Nobody can be made to do anything under hypnosis that they would not ordinarily consent to and that can be very reassuring for the first time patient.

Just as the depth of sleep can vary for the individual so too can the depth of trance that they experience. Even if only a light trance state is reached, post hypnotic suggestions can still be effective, as they will have been delivered at a level below full consciousness. If deeper trance states are felt to be more appropriate then repeating the inductions over a period of time can help to achieve this.

All patients will wake up at the end of a hypnotic trance session. Some patients worry about staying in a “zombie” state but by following an awakening procedure a therapist or the patient themselves can have trance successfully. Similarly, because the patient is fully aware of what is happening they can leave trance quickly and respond to something like a fire alarm or similar event.

Just as it helps to remember things by repeating them to ourselves, it helps post hypnotic suggestions to be more effective if they are repeated during further trance sessions. Here, the patient can be taught to practise self-hypnosis and reinforce the messages for themselves in self-induced hypnoidal states.

Anyone contemplating hypnosis for whatever reason can see that it is a safe and effective therapy, which when conducted by an experienced and qualified practitioner can offer long lasting solutions to long standing issues.
