I have had massage from Taviene and always walk out feeling amazing but it's reflexology that has become my favourite! It is such a gentle treatment that I am usually snoozing within five minutes of Taviene starting to work on my feet! Margaret
What can I expect from a Reflexology session?
At your first session you will be given a brief explanation of reflexology, its benefits and possible reactions you may experience. If you are having a foot reflexology treatment you will be asked to remove all your footwear and your feet will be examined. Conversely if you are having a hand reflexology treatment you will be asked to remove all jewellery. During a Reflexology session you remain fully clothed and lie down on the comfortable massage table.
The practitioner will then apply relaxation techniques to your feet in preparation for working the reflex areas. The pressure used will be adjusted to your level of sensitivity. The session will be discussed with you and suggestions made for the best course of action to achieve your health goals.
Reflexology is based on the principle that certain parts of the body reflect the whole. Reflex points, which relate to all parts of the body, can be found in the feet, hands, face and ears. These points respond to pressure, stimulating the body's own natural healing process. The body starts progressively clearing blockages, re-establishing energy flows and balancing itself, resulting in better health. Reflexology is a holistic, non-invasive modality which has been around for over 3000 years. Subtle yet powerful, reflexology is becoming increasingly popular in the world of complementary therapies.
