Reflexology Treatment Nottingham
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology Nottingham is a non-intrusive massage therapy used to relieve tension and treat illness. Reflexology is based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. The feet are seen as a map by reflexologists. Using specialised massage techniques they can work on the reflex points of your feet to help correct imbalances throughout your body.
Anyone can enjoy a reflexology treatment it’s suitable for most adults, children and babies. John, a patient that has benefited from Reflexology in Nottingham, was so happy with the results, he wanted to share his story
About a year ago, I was admitted to the hospital with a severe chest infection and dehydration which resulted in a quite significant degree of kidney damage and loss of functional filtration. Wishing to do everything possible to aid recovery, I enquired at Riverside Natural Health Centre to see what, if any, Complementary Therapy services they could offer that might help my problem. I was convinced that my” Base chakra” energy levels were low and I thought that Acupuncture Nottingham might help. We decided in the end that a course of Reflexology might offer the best chance. I commenced with a treatment every 2 weeks and blood tests confirmed that my kidney function had (and still is), stabilised. I have continued my Reflexology treatments every four weeks since, on the principle. “If something seems to be working - don’t try to fix it.”
It may be that I would have recovered without complementary intervention, who can say? I have felt so much better and had so much more energy from the treatment that I am loath to stop, and so I continue with my “top up” every 4 weeks. It has become less of treatment for me over the past months, and more of a trip out to see friends. I can certainly recommend the Riverside for Reflexology in Nottingham

What happens during a reflexology treatment?
When you book a Reflexology treatment at the Riverside Natural Health Centre in Nottingham, the reflexologist will begin with a consultation. This helps the reflexologist gauge whether the treatment is suitable for you and enables them to create a personalised reflexology treatment plan. Occasionally your GP’s permission may be needed as a precaution before treatments can begin, especially if you have diabetes.
Each reflexology treatment lasts about an hour. It’s just your feet that are normally worked on although your hands also replicate areas of your body so they can be worked on instead of your feet if you prefer.
You remain fully clothed, you just need to remove your footwear. Don’t worry about the look or smell of your feet Nottingham reflexologists love all types of feet!
How Many Treatments Will I Require?
There is no set number of treatments for anyone condition as everyone is different. As a guideline, treatments can be from 1 – 6 depending on the problem and how long you’ve had the problem. You should start to feel the benefits during this time frame.
Reflexology also helps with chronic illness and is an excellent therapy for cancer patients and patients with a terminal illness. It can help them to relax, cope better with the side effects of treatment and get a better night’s sleep.
