Reflexology in Bristol at the Chiron Centre
Reflexology is a natural, holistic therapy. It has been used successfully for thousands of years by cultures from all around the world. It is based on the idea that the feet, hands or face are mini maps of the body and that there are points or reflexes which relate to the vital organs, glands or structures of the body. For example, on our feet, the big toe is the head and at the base of the big toe are reflexes for the neck.
During a treatment, the therapist uses specific thumb and finger techniques to apply pressure to the reflexes on the feet. This helps clear blockages and congestion in the body, which in turn allows the body to rebalance and be healthy (the blockages or congestion may have arisen from an accident, injury or illness). When the body is not working in harmony, we are more prone to infection which can manifest as colds, headaches and fatigue. Reflexology is an extremely relaxing and revitalising treatment and is suitable for people of all ages.

What happens during sessions and how much does it cost?
During a hand reflexology you will be seated comfortably with a supporting pillow under your arm. I will start on each hand individually with opening stretches and hand massage. This will help to open up the hand energetically for deeper reflex work. I will then work on the individual reflex points of the hands using various thumb walking and finger techniques. During this time, I will map out any areas of congestion using a hand reflexology map which we can then look at together. If you are suffering with a specific condition or symptoms particular attention will be paid to the corresponding reflex points. For example, if you have a headache or acid reflux I will pay special attention to the area of the feet that corresponds with your head and abdomen. Your treatment will finish with a gentle, nourishing and moisturising hand massage. Hand reflexology can be a truly powerful and effective form of therapeutic treatment which you are invited to come and experience at our relaxing center.
