We offer holistic therapies here at Silvana and I thought I’d go into a bit more detail about Reflexology – so that you can get a good idea of what to expect if you choose to have this wonderfully healing therapy.
I was introduced to reflexology about 20 years ago to give up smoking – and it worked! At that time I had three young children and quite a stressful life and it became the highlight of my week: it was the only time I felt truly relaxed.
I trained in 2001 and have been working in holistic health centres in the UK and Mallorca ever since.
Reflexology is the ancient art of foot massage
Applying light pressure on different points of the feet harmonises and balances the body at the physical level by stimulating the body systems towards the optimum level of function, thus restoring health. I practice Holistic Reflexology which works with, and balances, mental, emotional and physical energy.
Reflexology can be used to treat many conditions and is beneficial for disturbed sleep, menstrual problems, headaches, back or neck discomfort, anxiety, stress and tension of all kinds. After a session clients can feel energised or very tired. I always recommend a bath or shower afterwards and, if possible, a quiet couple of hours to optimise the healing process. It is about letting go of stress on all levels.
The root cause
A session is an hour, including a 15 minute consultation at the beginning. I allow 90 minutes for the first session to take a health history. The number of sessions varies from client to client. Most clients come regularly, every week or fortnight, depending on how they are feeling. Holistic Reflexology is most appreciated by those wanting to look at the root causes of their health issues and I try to support any positive changes they choose to make.
The benefits of holistic reflexology are sometimes subtle, occurring over a period of time. Clients begin to react to situations in their lives in a calmer way, gaining a perspective over problems in a way which is impossible to do in an anxious state. The most rewarding part of being a therapist is to see transformation in the lives of those who you work with.
Clients have turned serious health challenges into positive, life-changing events. This has been achieved through understanding and letting go of negative patterns of behaviour accumulated over their lives. That is exactly what I have experienced myself with my own wellbeing, a life transformation, which is why I am so committed to offer the same opportunity to others.
If you have any questions please do drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org – holistic therapies are an integral part of our retreats and we also offer individual therapy sessions to clients in Mallorca.
