Ancient massage techniques used by the professionals

Reflexology is a non-invasive and relaxing complementary therapy that aims to optimise both physical and emotional health. It works by massaging and stimulating specific points (usually on the feet but sometimes on the hands, face and ears) called reflex points. It's believed that these points correspond to different organs and systems within the body, stimulating them to encourage natural healing and balance within. As reflexologists, the trained practitioners at Epping Physiotherapy Clinic work holistically to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms, helping you overcome issues and prevent problems down the line.

The history behind reflexology

There's an ancient Chinese belief that a vital energy source or 'qi' flows through each individual. It's said that stress and emotional upset can block this flow of energy, causing imbalances in the body that result in illness. Reflexology is used to prevent this, working with the body to help remove blockages and keep the energy flowing freely.

With the use of touch and pressure applied to various connecting points, this treatment is said to send energy through the body which will reach any areas where healing is required. Thus, for many years these techniques have been used for:

  • Pain management

  • Mood enhancement

  • To combat stress and anxiety

  • For improve well-being

  • To relax the mind and body

This should not be underestimated - it's imperative that you make time to clear your mind and totally relax. During your sessions you may experience:

  • A combination of massage techniques, if desired

  • Deep relaxation

  • A tingling sensation and warmth, commonly reported by clients

  • Pressure on specific points on the body depending on where blockages may be found

  • Feelings of overwhelming emotion as blockages are said to release
