Why Ravens Retreat?
You will be warmly welcomed whether you wish to try Reflexology as a one-off treatment, as part of a preventative and well-being lifestyle plan, alongside traditional healthcare or have received a Gift Voucher. Client feedback as part of the After Care review suggests that an initial feeling of lethargy is replaced by revitalisation. Some reflexologists refer to this as the Healing Process, natural re-balancing. Self-help techniques and general healthy living advice may be offered.
How it is believed to work?
Advanced techniques will be used to assist with how your ‘treat or treatment’ is likely to proceed. This can guide which body systems may be worked (e.g. Digestive, Respiratory, and Endocrine). In addition to that, the Chinese concept of Meridian Therapy as adopted in Acupressure and Acupuncture, can be applied. It is based on Qi (Chi or energy) and Reflexology is believed to be the stimulation and revitalisation of this energy (Dougans, 2002). Reflexes in the foot are believed to correspond to organs, glands and systems throughout the body.
