Reflexology is a complementary therapy where the therapist uses a specialised movement to work over every part of each foot to relax you, endeavouring to clear any blockages and imbalances and help to relieve the effects of certain conditions. It is believed that every part of the body is mirrored on the feet and that what affects the part, affects the whole. It has been used in several cultures over time and the earliest pictorial depiction is on the tomb of an Egyptian physician dated 2200 BC.
A Typical Session with Banni
A first Reflexology session lasts about an hour and a quarter. During the session I ask you questions about your general health, diet, lifestyle and any health problems you may have so that I can form a picture of you as a whole person. This is followed by the first treatment.
Subsequent treatments last around 45 minutes each, after which you may want to take a few minutes to gently gather yourself together and have a drink of water. We can then talk about any findings or you can tell me of any sensations you felt or anything else you may want to discuss about the treatment.
