Clinical Reflexology in Lutterworth or at your Workplace

We offer Clinical Reflexology treatments not only from our premises in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, but also at your own workplace. (Please read on for more information about Corporate Reflexology Days).

In Lutterworth, our purpose built therapy room provides a calm and relaxing environment for our clients and customers to enjoy this beneficial treatment.

Our treatment room is open 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.

Supporting our clients

The team at Browns recognise that assisting our clients with both their own wellbeing and that of their employees is an important part of our support service and this is just one of the ways we are extending our holistic approach.  Treatments are now included in our clients’ annual support packages and can be incorporated as part of a management plan to assist with work-related stress, health and well-being. We have received an enormous amount of positive feedback from our clients who have already received reflexology treatments in our therapy room and demand has now grown for these services to extend into the workplace.

Corporate Reflexology Services

Due to popular request, we are now offering workplace reflexology days and presentations:

Our reflexology and wellbeing presentation is an informative session for your management team and/or employees covering the theories behind this beneficial treatment and how it may assist with the management of stress, reduce tension and improve health and wellbeing. This talk aims to provide an understanding of the physiological effects of stress, the health implications of long term or chronic stress and ways to help minimise and manage these potential health risks. Sessions incorporate interactive activities and demonstrations, depending on your requirements and the availability of volunteers. Recommended time 1-2 hours (prices available on enquiry depending on requirements and location).

Reflexology treatments are beneficial as a one-off treat or for on-going wellbeing. So if you are interested in organising a day of taster sessions for your team, or a regular onsite visit for monthly treatments, please contact us to discuss your requirements. Our therapist will provide all the necessary equipment for treatments, so you will only need to provide a quiet private room. Prices start from £350 + VAT for the day depending on location and this would include up to 12 taster sessions, or 5 full treatments.

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.

What our clients say:

“Reflexology is not a treatment I would have chosen before. However, after receiving the treatment and enjoying it as much as I did it is certainly something I would do again.”

“Very relaxing, I was wrapped in a blanket and fell to sleep.”

“I would be interested in having reflexology again. It was amazing and really de-stressed me. Albeit I just wanted to fall sleep afterwards. Next time I’ll arrange it so that I can go straight home after!”

“Not something I’ve ever tried before but always wanted to. Highly recommended. It certainly does chill you out, far more than you expect it to.”

“I know our feet are neglected but this treatment that Mandy offers really does make a difference, not only to your feet but your wellbeing. I felt totally relaxed afterwards, thank you so much. Certainly something as a team we will be repeating when time allows!”

“A treatment you should make time for. More so if you don’t feel you have the time as it just clears your head and you feel more productive afterwards!”
