Looking for a complementary form of massage that works best in conjunction with other forms of treatment in order to promote optimal health and wellbeing? There’s no better time than now to try reflexology treatment and discover the multitude of benefits you could enjoy. If you’re looking for satisfying reflexology massage in Melbourne, you’ll find it right here at Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic.
Reflexology is best considered a complementary practice that’s used conjunction with a primary form of treatment, with the reflexology treatment providing additional support. Also known as zone therapy, the process involves the reflexology professional applying various levels of pressure to the client’s feet or face using particular finger, thumb and hand techniques. The application of pressure is believed to stimulate energy flow and release energy blockages that might be causing soreness or pain.
While different reflexology professionals have varying ideas on how reflexology treatment works, the one constant thread among the various schools of belief is that when the foot is divided into its ten sections (five on the left and five on the right), each of these sections corresponds to an area of the body. By manipulating the area on the foot, you engage the energies that aid healing in that area of the body.
Clients come to Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic to seek reflexology for foot pain, relaxation and everything in between. Depending on which areas of the feet the pressure is applied to by your reflexology professional, reflexology treatment can be used to alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety, improve relaxation, and enhance quality of sleep.
A reflexology professional will not diagnose, prescribe or treat particular conditions. If you come seeking reflexology for foot pain, they may be able to aid in relieving general soreness but they won’t be able to help with pain caused by bunions, ingrown toenails or other similar conditions. Anything that’s not within the scope of a reflexology professional should be seen by a GP. As a therapeutical option, it should always be considered complementary to a primary method prescribed by your GP.
