Reflexology in The Body Clinic


What is Reflexology? 

Art of reflexology

Reflexology is a natural, holistic treatment, which works by activating and supporting the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Reflexologists believe that different areas on your feet and hands correspond to other parts of your body, and by applying a pressure on these areas it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to heal itself.

How can it help me?ID-10080623

By stimulating the reflexes on the feet, reflexology helps the body to release the energy blockages and find its natural equilibrium. Since reflexology treats the whole person, not the symptoms of disease, most people benefit from treatment. Reflexology can help you to maintain the homeostasis (the natural balance) of mind, body and spirit.

Some of the physical conditions reflexology can treat :

  • Anxiety
  • Back Pain
  • Migraines
  • Infertility
  • Sleep Disorders (e.g. Insomnia)
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Toxin build up
  • Circulatory Problems
  • Low immunity
  • Digestive Disorders (e.g. IBS)
  • Tension & Stress Related Conditions and so many more!!!

Mental benefits:

  • Boosts confidence
  • Stimulates creativity and productivity
  • Reduces depression
  • Improves focus and concentration


Reflexology, also, assists in releasing emotional blockages and induces a deep state of relaxation.

There are some contraindications to the treatment:

  • Any contagious skin disease
  • Severe varicose veins i.e. phlebitis, (Reflexology may increase pressure of blood to veins)
  • Thrombosis
  • Athletes foot or verrucas
  • First few days of menstruation (Reflexology may make period heavier)
  • Diarrhea and vomiting – cross infection
  • Fever and infectious diseases (this includes severe colds and flu)
  • Cancer patients (especially if they receive radiation treatments or chemotherapy)
  • Unclear or severe pain (As it can trigger the condition)
  • Risk pregnancies and pregnancy in first trimester
  • Time after a heart attack or stroke (in the first 3-6 months massages contain big risks)
  • Trapped and pinched nerve

If you have any concerns we may also advise that you check with your GP.

You may experience some contra-actions after the treatment they are called ‘Healing crisis’. As the treatment activates the body’s healing powers the accumulated products and toxins, which may have laid dormant in the body for some time, are released into the bloodstream and excreted.

The contra-actions include:

  • increase of urination
  • nausea
  • increased emotional state
  • feeling more energetic
  • reduction in mood swings
  • headaches
  • feeling of tiredness
  • increased sweat production

Don’t worry, they might be possible contra actions that will never occur!!!

It is important to bear in mind that reflexologist is NOT a doctor and should not profess to cure, diagnose or treat any specific condition.

Do you know the health benefits of drinking water?

Summer has finally arrived and we all know how hot these days can be! Doing exercises, spending time with your family or friends, even doing nothing can be very tiring ( yes even putting your legs up in a hot and stuffy day can make you all sleepy!!) . So, I tried to find some good things on the internet that could improve my energy levels and found this little article about water ( it got my attention as we all know how essential is this colourless liquid!) never thought about these facts, so,  have a look and it might change your life as well.

Olympics village volunteer physiotherapist news

Kathryn, a physiotherapist at The Body Clinic is volunteering at the 2012 Olympic Games

Here’s her latest news :


Highlight of our day today was the Serbian and Croatian handball teams
training at mayesbrook. It’s a very interesting, fast-paced game. I would
highly recommended people have a watch of it during the Olympics!

First shift at the Olympic stadium, involved a 5am get up to make it across
to Stratford to start for 7am! Everyone also has to allow time to walk from
Stratford station across to the Olympic park and through the airport style
security (allow at least 20mins but that was at 6.40 – so probably a lot
longer at peak rush hour times!!)

We’re treating athletes over at the warm-up track which is situated at the
end of a tunnel alongside the Olympic stadium.

The 1st bus load of athletes came over from the athletes village just after
8am and from then on it was non-stop until around 2pm. A real mix of
athletes from mainly Caribbean and African countries.

The atmosphere within the volunteers is of excitement of the ‘calm before
the storm’ as things start to get busier and busier within the Olympic park.

The athletes are obviously there to do a job and are focused on what needs
to be achieved – it’s exciting to be involved in their preparations at this
