Elaine was a Human Resource Officer for a number of years, with the British Red Cross and the National Care Standards Commission. Having sought reflexology sessions during the stressful time of her mother’s illness, she found the treatment helped both her and her mother and decided to train at The Precision School of Reflexology in 2008.
Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary health therapy that can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and wellbeing: reducing stress in people’s lives can be key in optimising good health and building resilience.
It is a touch therapy that is based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, correspond with different areas of the body.
When illness or the stresses of everyday life take their toll, these areas or reflexes can be affected. Reflexology Massage stimulates these reflexes and helps the body restore a natural balance and therefore aid better health. It also helps bring about a deep sense of relaxation and inner calm.
It is a wonderful holistic therapy, that treats your whole body both physically and emotionally, encouraging total relaxation. Reflexology is suitable for all ages and works very well alongside conventional medicine. It is used within many settings including hospitals, hospices and care homes.
Precision Reflexology is one form of reflexology and, as such, it holds the same rationale as other forms of the therapy. It focuses on stimulating “reflex points” on the feet in order to maintain good health. Practitioners believe that, by applying appropriate pressure to these points it is possible to help a wide range of disorders. One important aspect of the unique nature of this technique is that it does not rely on force or actual pressure. The specific technique is called “linking”. This involves holding two (sometimes more) identified reflex points at the same time to add power and definition to the treatment. There are defined sets of links on the feet, each producing a particular effect and with their own application. Not all of them are for everybody and it would not be appropriate to use all the links within a single consultation. The effects produced range from energizing and uplifting to calming and deeply relaxing. The nature of precision reflexology is that it works with the subtle energy of the body and, as such, it does not respond to strong physical pressure. Each “link” is held with a light touch so a connection can be felt with clear definition but with no force at all. Precision work has the potential for great power even with this gentle pressure and it is particularly effective on painful reflexes or for the very fragile and vulnerable clients.
