Clinical Reflexology in Lutterworth
We are now offering Clinical Reflexology treatments from our premises in Lutterworth, Leicestershire. The new purpose built reflexology therapy room provides a calm and relaxing environment for our clients and customers to enjoy this beneficial treatment. This new service is available to anyone wishing to book a reflexology treatment, not just our contracted clients.
What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary holistic therapy that works on the theory that there is a map of reflex points on the feet (hands, face and ears) that correspond to all parts of the body, its organs and systems. By stimulating these reflex points, natural healing responses can be prompted in the corresponding areas of the body, helping to restore balance and improve well-being.
By incorporating regular treatments as part of a preventative healthcare lifestyle, reflexology can be beneficial as proactive maintenance for body systems.
What are the potential benefits of reflexology?
With the increasing everyday stresses of modern life, whether at home or in the work place, the associated impact of long term stress on physical, mental and emotional health and well-being is a very real issue for concern. By allowing your body to relax, it is possible to interrupt the ‘fight or flight’ body system responses to stress, giving your body the opportunity to re-balance and allow natural healing to occur.
For many people, reflexology encourages a state of deep relaxation, helping to reduce stress and improve circulation, thereby revitalising energy levels. Many people feel that their tension has reduced and that sleep patterns have improved. The positive outcomes from Reflexology treatments are as individual as people themselves and the only way to find out if it’s for you, is to try it.
What happens during a reflexology treatment?
The first time you attend for a treatment you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire. This and any other personal information discussed with your therapist will be treated strictly confidentially. Your therapist will explain what to expect and answer any questions you have. You will then be asked to sign a declaration confirming your consent.
At Browns, treatments will be delivered in a comfortable reclining chair in a relaxing environment with soft lighting and gentle music. You will be asked to remove your shoes and socks. Your therapist will use fingers and thumbs and an appropriate level of pressure to work the reflex points on your feet. The treatment should not be painful, but some areas of the feet may feel tender when pressed. The overall experience should be very pleasant and relaxing.
Treatment sessions last 50-60 minutes and 75-90 minutes for a first consultation and treatment.
Supporting our clients
The team at Browns are keen to introduce this service as a way of extending our holistic approach to assisting our clients and their employees. We hope our clients will embrace the new service which is now also included in their annual support packages and can be incorporated as part of a management plan to assist with work-related stress, health and well-being.
Do all reflexologists have the same training?
No. In the UK, there are currently no legal requirements with regards to the level of training required to practice as a reflexologist. A fully qualified clinical reflexologist will be trained to deliver tailored and bespoke treatment plans to support individual needs. At Browns Health & Safety, your treatment will be delivered by a therapist who has graduated from Jubilee College and holds a level 5 Mastership in Clinical Reflexology, the highest level of reflexology training currently available in the UK.
