Reflexology also known as 'reflex zone therapy' is a holistic healing method that involves pressure and massage of the reflex points found on the feet. These reflex points reflect the overall health of a person. Reflexology taps into one's vital energy that circulates between the feet and the organs of the body. If the energy is blocked or congested the part of the body relating to the blockage is affected. Through stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems, and by encouraging the release of toxins, Reflexology activates the healing powers of the body to facilitate healing and encourage well-being.
The session combines massage and reflexology along with essential oils applied to specific reflexes or areas on the legs and feet that stimulate all the internal bodily systems. Light to medium pressure is used which is suitable for seniors and people with sensitive bodies. For those that prefer a deeper pressure specific wooden reflexology tools will be used.
Session begins with an aroma salts foot soak. The soothing infrared heat, negative ions and crystal energy from the Amethyst Biomat is included in your session!
The Benefits of the Reflexology:
A session is 1 hour.
Usually 1-2 sessions per month is recommended for health maintenance, and 1-2 per week to facilitate the body to heal itself if you are dealing with health issues.
Pressure can be adjusted to your preference. Light to medium pressure is generally suitable for most people, seniors and people with sensitive bodies however you may feel some discomfort in an area that is out of balance or congested. For those that like a deeper pressure special reflexology tools can be used.
In the strictest sense, all superficial fungal infections are contagious, meaning hands-on massage & reflexology would be contraindicated. Best to schedule a session after completion of medical treatment and clearance of the infection.
Loose, casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. Other than removing socks and shoes and rolling trousers up to the knee, no need to remove clothing. Drink plenty of pure water on the day of the session. Eat lightly.
People commonly feel deeply relaxed, emotionally balanced, and/or revitalized and rejuvenated. The session is highly relaxing and I recommend that you take the rest of the day off after the session just to relax your body and slowly ease it back into the real world. Make sure to drink lots of water after your session.
Yes, you can have reflexology but we will need to go through a few detailed questions beforehand to ascertain your general health as well as where you are with your pregnancy and how things have been so far. There are one or two situations that may mean reflexology is not appropriate but in general ‘Mums to be’ find the treatment calming and relaxing.
With twice monthly treatments, I started having more energy and my feelings of stress and tension had melted away. With Sharon's advice I started doing foot exercises to strengthen my feet, and started walking without the orthotics for short periods each day. Sharon is more than a Reflexologist. Her knowledge of many healing therapies and advice combined in a treatment of the whole person: body, mind and spirit. She built up my belief in my potential for wholeness, and self-directed awareness as to possible causes of stress-related conditions. Sharon reaches out and heals with her knowledge and awareness. Reflexology is so much more than a “foot treatment” - and I feel great!

I was having considerable foot pain, especially at night and walking from my bedroom to the bathroom was exceedingly uncomfortable. I was also being troubled by indigestion and period pain. After only two treatments with Sharon I couldn’t believe the difference. My foot pain was gone, my indigestion had ceased, and my general feeling was one of well-being. Sharon has given me tremendous help. Also she has provided advice on nutrition and herbal supplements to help me along...I feel she is very professional and definitely informative in her line of work.
I would highly recommend Sharon to my friends.
