Reflexology uses the feet like a “body map” and gently works on “reflexes” – pressure points on the feet – that correspond to all the organs and systems of the body. The ancient Chinese and Egyptians have documented practices similar to Reflexology when treating a wide range of illnesses.
Join me in the comfortable and convenient surroundings at my treatment room in the heart of Cork City. You will be fully-clothed during a treatment – with only the feet uncovered – lying comfy and cosy with cushions and blankets. And every Reflexology treatment finishes with a gentle foot massage using organic coconut oil. The first treatment will include a detailed consultation to establish your needs and then you can enjoy time dedicated purely to you, your health and wellbeing. Kick up your heels and enjoy!
The health benefits are wide-ranging – see below – and include the improved flow of Chi (also written as “Qi”) energy around your body. As a Tai Chi and Chi Kung Instructor I am a passionate believer in the healing power of Chi and while some may not subscribe to the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are many scientific studies that have supported the excellent results from Reflexology and a growing number of GP’s and Specialists are recommending it more and more to their patients as a complementary therapy. Most health insurers now provide cover for Reflexology and I am listed with the 4x major Irish insurers and provide receipts for insurance claims.***

- Stress reduction and deep relaxation by stimulating the body’s own “self-soothing” system (the parasympathetic nervous system)
- Kick-starts the body’s healing mechanisms and systems promoting healing and cellular regeneration.
- Boosts and aids the immune system and helps the release of toxins
- Balances and improves the flow of energy through the body therefore improving systems that may be sluggish such as circulation, metabolism, hormones or digestion.
- Improves nerve function and “cleanses” neural pathways by stimulating a vast number of nerve endings (approximately 7000!) found on the feet. This can speed up our cognitive and physical reactions.
- Can improve poor sleep patterns, insomnia and fatigue
- Helps with headaches and migraines particularly if stress-related
- Eases aches and pains
- Great for treating IBS, constipation, bladder function and poor digestion
- Menstruation – can ease menstrual symptoms such as period pain, headaches and fluid retention and can help regulate an erratic menstrual cycle
- GREAT FOR A GENERAL HEALTH BOOST!!
Reflexology is a safe, soothing and supportive treatment that can help you feel like a person rather than a patient before, during and post-treatment.
It can ease the side-effects from your cancer treatment and in addition to the many benefits already listed above it can aid relaxation and sleep, reducing anxiety, eases the likelihood of nausea, vomiting or digestive issues and can stimulate antioxidant activity.
I also offer Touch Therapy Massage for cancer care – go to the drop-down menu or click above for more details.
A Reflexology treatment balances, stimulates and kick-starts many systems in the body through gentle pressure on reflex points on the feet including those relating to the reproductive organs and the endocrine (hormonal) glands, promoting greater health, balance and energy in these areas. Reflexology for Fertility treatments are suitable for both men and women and studies show they can potentially help couples who have been unable to conceive during this complex and emotional process, and it’s well documented that sub-fertility levels are affecting both men and women in equal number.
