Clinical (Medical) reflexology is not a ‘foot massage’ it is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas.- it improves stress and tension, blood supply and promotes unblocking of nerve impulses. This stimulates the body to address any imbalances and repair itself. There is no commitment and no pressure. Liz practices at ‘Progress House’, Cecil Road, Hale and they have all the facilities needed to make your experience enjoyable. It is also possible to meet with you in your own home.
Liz Stein, is a graduate of the ‘International Institute of Reflexology’ and practices the Original Ingham Method® of Reflexology which has survived for over sixty years because it works. While techniques continue to develop, the basis of Liz’s methodology is the same as Eunice documented. Before training as a clinical reflexologist she practiced as a State Registered Nurse in many areas of medicine and surgery. she then joined the pharmaceutical industry which enabled her to gain an in depth knowledge of many conditions and the medicines used to treat them.
The first appointment is the foundation of a program that’s designed specifically for you. This first session lasts approximately 90 minutes. The outcome of this early consultation is an individually tailored care plan. At each stage, we carefully review progress to help us understand the real benefits reflexology is bringing to your life.
This is our message.
A lot of people found the idea that I wanted to expand my medical training to something more holistic and less invasive than my background training had provided was perhaps a little eccentric. To be studying an area in which I had no background experience was also controversial. “let’s be honest, how can a foot massage have any therapeutic effect on the body.” “a waste of time and money.” are some of the comments I heard when I mentioned my desire to learn reflexology.
I researched with an open mind; I had heard some excellent feedback from nurses with whom I worked in the neurological care field; and with no past experiences to influence what I was about to witness for myself, I decided to press forward and learn.
Studies of anatomy, body systems and the resulting effect on the body because of their poor performance can spoil opportunities to live to the optimum. The new skills I learned and practice are only a part of my journey. I have heard and adopted much from the people I meet by listening to their individual reflexology experience.
I quickly learned just how reflexology assisted the body in becoming balanced, like exercise, reflexology helps us become ‘steadier’ in both body and life. When we focus on our well being just by taking a little extra time; our lives can become less stressed. We can be in touch with our body, finding new positivity, lower stress and greater balance.
For many reflexology creates a simple discipline that delivers enjoyable and beneficial ways of health checking ourselves. Why not give it a try?
