Reflexology at Corehealth

What is Reflexology? Reflexology is based on the premise that all of the body’s major organs are connected by nerve endings to various points on the body. By applying pressure on these points, impulses are transmitted and we are able to stimulate the corresponding body part and assist the body in its own ability to heal.

Reflexology in the west is based on Zone Theory, zones being the equivalent to the meridians of Chinese Traditional medicine with the reflexes being mapped out accordingly. The principle uniting Chinese Reflexology with western Reflexology is that in order for the body to be in optimum health, the energy in the body must be free flowing. Massaging or pressing specific points can balance the energy zones, clear blockages and stimulate the flow of energy, blood, nutrients and nerve impulses to the corresponding area.

 

Indian Head Massage

Based on the Ayurvedic system of ancient healing, Indian Head Massage is the ideal treatment to melt away stress and release any tension that has built up in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

Aside from being deeply relaxing, Indian Head Massage has the additional benefit of increasing blood flow to the scalp which in turn stimulates hair growth. It is especially good for relieving tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraines and sinusitis, leaving you feeling calm and relaxed as well as energised, revitalised and better able to concentrate.

How can it help me? Reflexology is a tool with which to promote a deep state of relaxation and your body in its own ability to rebalance. It is also used to target specific health problems by focusing on the reflexes associated with the relevant body system. Irrespective of your health condition the session will generally focus on the entire pattern of the feet in order to rebalance the body systems. However, extra time will be given to any reflexes relevant to your presenting condition. Treatments can incorporate foot massage and be tailored at your request.

What can I expect during a Reflexology treatment? If it is your first appointment then there will be a health consultation. This is important in order to gain a better understanding of your state of well-being and focus treatment in the correct way for you. For both Foot and Facial Reflexology you will remain fully clothed with treatment being given on a massage couch. A gentle pressure is applied in all treatments to allow nerve pathways and congestion to release and promote the relaxation response for the entire body.

Foot Reflexology The feet are a particularly receptive area to work on due to there being over 7,000 nerve endings in this area. During a foot reflexology treatment, gentle pressure is applied to the reflexes on the feet in order to rebalance body systems and induce a relaxation response.

Facial Reflexology: Glow brighter! Experience the rejuvenating effects of Facial Reflexology….

As the reflexes on the face are in such close proximity to the brain, they provide a powerful tool with which to connect to the body’s neuro-pathways. The added benefit of Facial Reflexology is its rejuvenating effect which is achieved through increasing circulation and releasing muscular tension. It assists with lymphatic draining, smoothes lines and improves muscle tone encouraging a naturally radiant complexion. Clients often report the treatment having an immediate glowing and rejuvenating effect on their face.

I use a range of organic oils from Neil’s Yard in my facial treatments making it a wonderfully indulgent experience.

Holistic Massage: Holistic Massage is a sequence of flowing and stimulating movements specifically designed to relax the body on the level of mind, body and spirit, assist circulation and detoxify the muscles.

You can request a full body massage or one tailored to the areas you would like. The massage can be combined with Reflexology and Reiki.

Reiki: Reiki is a restorative and balancing treatment which channels sacred life force energy. It can be used to remove blocks and rebalance the individual’s body systems on an energetic level and therefore activate the body’s own natural ability to heal. It is in fact you as the recipient who are the healer, a practitioner using energy healing simply holds a resonance to allow the body to heal itself.

90 minute Combination Treatment: You can create a bespoke treatment by choosing from any of the above therapies.

About Anna Vermond

I trained in Reflexology at the prestigious ‘London School of Reflexology,’ with Louise Keet, renouned Reflexologist and author of, ‘The Reflexology Bible.’ I went on to complete my Facial Reflexology training with Ziggie Bergman and gain an ITEC qualification in Holistic Massage. I decided to pursue my career as a Reflexologist and work with Holistic Therapies for the simple reason that I enjoy assisting people on the path to enjoying increased well-being.

I have always been intrigued by the relationship between mind and body as well as in our ability to be aligned with our highest potential.  Through my own direct experience and research over the years I have come to understand that we have a powerful influence over our health and well-being, whether consciously or subconsciously.  Over time, I have come to understand how our thinking patterns have a direct effect on our physical well being. When I began working with Reiki in 1998 it helped me in my understanding that everything is energy, including our thoughts. It makes sense therefore that by adapting our thoughts and actions, we can change our vibrational frequency which in turn has an impact on our health. How do I see Holistic Therapies being able to help in this process? Quite simply, when we are able to enter a deep state of relaxation we still our thoughts and support the body in its inherent ability to heal and regenerate.

Research has shown that silencing thoughts in meditation has a hugely positive impact on health. However, most of us in today’s society lead busy lives with hectic schedules and it can be difficult to find not only the time and inclination, but also the self-discipline to incorporate meditation into our daily lives. It is my belief that holistic therapies therefore provide an excellent tool with which to focus our bodies into this deep state of relaxation and quieten the mind. The key aim behind all of my treatments is to release tension and induce a meditative state in which the body is able to rebalance itself.

My aim is to create a deeply relaxing space for you to relax during treatments and forget the day to day pressures of life.
