Paula Fenegan, Honiton Devon, East Devon, offers Foot Reflexology.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy, the art of which, dates back to ancient Egypt, India and China, but it wasn’t until 1913 that William Fitzgerald introduced Zone Therapy to the Western World. He believed that reflex areas on the feet and hands were linked to other areas and organs in the body. In 1930, Eunice Ingham further developed Zone therapy and mapped the areas on the feet and introduced what we now know as Reflexology. There have been further developments in the area of Reflexology, with more specialised areas.

What is Reflexology
I initially trained using the Ingham method but I have also completed further training in Repro-Reflexology, Facial Reflexology, (using the Bergman method) and Precision Reflexology.
I am a full member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR) and as such am committed to working in accordance with their Code of Practice and Continued Professional Development (CPD) policies. I currently have a practice in Honiton East Devon. I am also available for home visits in the local area, within a 5 mile radius.
Reflexology is a lovely, relaxing treatment to receive. It is proven to reduce cortisol levels, thereby reducing stress in the body. As stress is believed to be a factor in 70% of all illness, then reducing levels is going to be a beneficial strategy. Reflexology also improves the circulation of the blood, thereby transporting nutrients around the body more efficiently. This contributes to general feeling of calmness and wellbeing.
Practicing self care is so important. A session once a month is often a good place to start!
I will complete a client consultation form and discuss any issues you maybe having. I will then ask you to sign a consent form. All information is kept strictly confidential.
If having foot reflexology, you will then need to remove your socks. You will then recline in the chair and I will then apply a light foot balm and apply light pressure to massage different parts of the feet and lower leg. Occasionally, certain areas maybe tender, or feel gritty to me. This is a sign of an imbalance. Afterwards I will talk to you about what I may have felt and advise you upon a course of further sessions.
Each person is an individual and results will vary dependent upon the issues involved.
Clients usually feel deeply relaxed and have an improved sense of wellbeing. Occasionally feeling tired, but many report a good night sleep the day of the treatment.
All of the reactions are normal and part of the healing journey.
This is a question I get asked regularly. Everyone is different and there is no standard answer to this question. However, if you have a specific issue that you are hoping to address with Reflexology, then it is highly likely that you will need a course of treatments. Generally, 4-6 treatments are needed for you to start to start to feel the real benefit of reflexology. This is because reflexology has a cumulative effect and so each treatment builds on the benefits felt from the previous treatment.
It is advisable to start with weekly treatments, to build on the positive effects of the previous week. Once we are at the fourth treatment it is possible to move to fortnightly, with the view to monthly, or as and when you fell you need a top up!
