Whilst the art of reflexology dates back to Ancient Egypt, India and China, this therapy was not introduced to the Western world until the early 1900s. Dr William Fitzgerald developed ‘Zone therapy’ and he learned that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs of the body within the same zone. In the 1930’s, Eunice Ingham further developed this zone therapy into what is known as reflexology.
At the very least, people describe Reflexology as deeply relaxing and rejuvenating, often leading to a great night's sleep. Reflexology can also be effective on numerous other conditions such as arthritis, digestive issues, migraines, depression and more. Fertility reflexology has been proven to increase the chance of conception. Visit Rose Unwin Fertility for more information regarding fertility health coaching. Maternity reflexology also has tremendous benefits for pregnant women, most notably: reducing pain in labour and shortening labour times for women who had regular reflexology leading up to birth.
Reflexology is non-invasive and is suitable for all ages.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Indian head massage is an ancient therapy based on the ayurvedic system of healing that has been practiced in India for over a thousand years. It is a relaxing holistic treatment that uses acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders.
This form of massage focuses on the three higher "chakras" - mind, body and spirit. A really good Indian head massage can make you feel detached and serene, leave you sighing and wordless, but also alert and clear-headed, alleviating brain-fog and stress.
Indian head massage stimulates blood flow, lymph and oxygen in your upper body. Thus, it may relieve sinusitis, stress and improve sleep quality. It is also known to cure headaches, relieve aches and pains, and create a deep sense of calm.
