Panel 1

Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

A wonderfully holistic pressure point massage on the feet and lower legs. Based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands and feet which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. A gentle foot therapy which helps to restore the balance and energy in the body and encourages the body’s natural healing process.

The aim of reflexology is to create ‘homeostasis’. This means that your whole being is working together for optimum wellness and harmony.  Your incredible human body has an astonishing ability to heal itself and maintain overall health.

It is a safe and relaxing treatment for men and women of any age. It is also a wonderful treatment during pregnancy. Click here for more on treatment during pregnancy.

There is no doubt that being a human being in today’s busy world can be stressful and challenging. Our stress response systems are designed to return us to normal function via the relaxation response. However in our modern day, over stimulated lives, this often doesn’t happen enough, and long term stress can have damaging effects on our body.

Reflexology is a safe treatment for people of any age. My children especially enjoy it before bed time

Reflexology can aid wellness by:

  • Improving your circulation of blood, oxygen and energy.
  • Relieving stress, which in turn brings a sense of wellness, balance and well-being.
  •  Enabling your body’s own natural healing responses.

The history

Reflexology dates back to ancient civilizations in Egypt, India and China.

The oldest documentations come from a pictograph in the tomb of an Egyptian Physician Ankhmahor dated around 2500-2330 B.C.

The North American tribes of Indians are known to have practised a form of foot therapy for hundreds of years. They believed it allowed a connection between the energies of the earth to mankind.

Massage

Why massage?

Boost Immunity

Many studies have linked massages to improved functioning of the immune system. Massage has been shown to improve production of white blood cells which help growth and repair within the body. The same study was repeated with a focus on how massage effects hormone levels and it showed that people who had Swedish massage twice a week had decreased levels of the stress hormone cortisol and more oxytocin, the trust hormone.

Improves Wellbeing

A relaxing massage can reduce anxiety, stress and depression. Massage has been proven to increase levels of oxytocin in the body, which in turn reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This improves your overall feeling of wellbeing and can reduce blood pressure. Massage can also increase levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which is helpful for people suffering from depression.

Reduces Inflammation

A study published in Science Translational Medicine in 2012 found that massage greatly relieves sore muscles after physical exercise. Just 10 minutes of massage can reduce inflammation and help your body recover more quickly.

Reduces Pain

A 2011 study of lower back pain published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that Swedish massage or deep tissue massage can help alleviate chronic lower back pain. After receiving 1 massage a week for 10 weeks, 1 out of 3 patients were relieved of pain compared to 1 in 25 given ‘usual care’.

Improves Sleep

Even insomniacs may find it easier to get a good night’s rest after a massage at Olive Tree Wellness. Some people even fall asleep while they are being massaged! Many studies have addressed this phenomenon and accredit it to massage’s affect on delta waves, which are the brain waves associated with deep sleep.
