The Benefits of Reflexology

Reflexology offers deep relaxation and healing. It kick-starts the body’s own healing processes, increases both the lymphatic flow (immune system) and the blood circulation (oxygenating the tissues, removing waste products and helps to loosen the body fascia which then allows each organ to operate in optimum conditions. Reflexology boosts the immune system and opens up the energy and neural channels.

During the treatment itself, you can feel the body stepping down and out from the fight-and-flight mode, which comes with feelings of tension, stress, and worry, and dropping into a state of rest and digest, because the parasympathetic nervous system is switched on.

During and following a reflexology treatment the body also releases enkephalins and endorphins which provide a pain-relieving effect 200 times that of morphine! Furthermore, the release of these chemicals:

  • boosts memory
  • boosts feelings of pleasure
  • balances the different body systems e.g. reproductive, musculo-skeletal, etc
  • improves symptoms of mild (to possibly moderate) mental illnesses

After one session, most people find they feel lighter, physically and emotionally, relaxed, and recharged.

Similar benefits are experienced during maternity reflexology- as well as relief from certain pregnancy-specific symptoms.

A reflexology session can be booked with Sana at the Target Health Clinic in South Norwood, Croydon.  

Sana is a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) having been trained in Reflexology and Maternity Reflexology by Louise Keets, London School of Reflexology, and Sally Earlam respectively.
