Reflexology has been used as an effective healing tool for over 5,000 years. There are several theories about how it works but the fundamental concept of Reflexology is that the feet and hands mirror the complete structure of the body and that by applying precise and focused pressure to specific points called ‘reflexes’ on the hands and feet‭, a positive physiological response is registered in the corresponding part of the body. In order to remain in a balanced state of wellbeing, our life force or energy must be able to flow unimpeded through and around every cell in our bodies. If this flow becomes blocked as a result of emotional trauma, injury or stress for example, it is believed that ill health may result.

Acne

Acne is the result of overactive sebaceous glands and excess skin cell production, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads and cysts. However not all acne is the same and treatments need to be tailored to your specific needs to achieve the best results.

Genetics and hormones are the primary impacting factors, but in some cases it may be an external factor that can be causing, if not increasing, the severity of breakouts. In both cases this changed hormonal activity stimulates an over production of oil. At the same time the skin becomes thicker as cells no longer exfoliate in an organised way leading to congestion which is a mix of oil and dead skin cells. This provides the perfect breeding ground for Propionibacterium acnes (P acnes). This bacterium is responsible for the redness and inflammation that most often progresses on to the cysts and whiteheads.

Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. There are many different types of massage, including these common types:

  • Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
  • Deep massage. This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
  • Sports massage. This is similar to Swedish massage, but it's geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
  • Trigger point massage. This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
