Re­flex­ol­ogy to the res­cue for op­ti­mal health

Sore mus­cles? Stressed? Lack­ing en­ergy?

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

IT’S time to get out­side and en­joy the Sun­shine Coast sun­shine. From gar­den­ing, golf­ing, bik­ing, kayak­ing, surfing, swim­ming, boat­ing and ev­ery spring/sum­mer ac­tiv­ity in between, it’s vi­tal to be pain free to en­joy the ac­tiv­i­ties you love.

These new ac­tiv­i­ties can cause mus­cle fa­tigue, aches and pains, so now more than ever you should be main­tain­ing a reg­u­lar re­flex­ol­ogy sched­ule.

Re­flex­ol­ogy can be traced back to an­cient civil­i­sa­tions of Egypt between 2500 and 3000 BC, yet some peo­ple still don’t fully un­der­stand the ben­e­fits.

Re­flex­ol­ogy is a nat­u­ral, deeply re­lax­ing pres­sure ther­apy which pro­vides bal­ance in phys­i­cal, men­tal, emo­tional and en­er­getic lev­els in the hu­man body.

Whether you have a se­ri­ous phys­i­cal ill­ness, in­jury, emo­tional is­sue or sim­ply need to de-stress, re­flex­ol­ogy has proven many times to be up­lift­ing, re­vi­tal­is­ing and deeply re­lax­ing – pro­mot­ing gen­eral health and well-be­ing.

When used on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, re­flex­ol­ogy acts as a pow­er­ful pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sure against ill­ness. All this from a foot rub? It is far from just a foot mas­sage – it is de­signed to treat all ar­eas of the body via the feet, face, hands and ears.

These have a set of re­flex points cor­re­spond­ing with all parts of the body.

For ex­am­ple, the area for the spine fol­lows the line from your big toe to your heel. The heart re­flex is largely on the ball of the left foot and the toes re­late to the head and neck area.

Each re­flex area is worked us­ing spe­cific tech­niques, ap­ply­ing smooth, firm pres­sure. Ten­der­ness or pain in a re­flex area can in­di­cate con­ges­tion in that cor­re­spond­ing part of the body.

Through the face and the feet, the au­to­nomic ner­vous sys­tem, lym­phatic sys­tem, cir­cu­la­tion and en­ergy merid­i­ans are all af­fected. Bal­ance is re­stored by the stim­u­la­tion or se­da­tion of the re­flex points us­ing spe­cialised tech­niques, boost­ing your en­ergy, re­liev­ing pain and im­prov­ing your health.

Put sim­ply, re­flex­ol­ogy can help ev­ery­one, re­gard­less of age or oc­cu­pa­tion.

Norma Street, of Re­flex­ol­ogy on Buderim, has been prac­tis­ing re­flex­ol­ogy on the Sun­shine Coast for 17 years.

Norma is a fully qual­i­fied re­flex­ol­o­gist who takes a holis­tic ap­proach to health and is able to ap­ply her ex­pert knowl­edge and tech­niques in not only re­flex­ol­ogy but a num­ber of recog­nised heal­ing modal­i­ties to as­sist her clients with nig­gling health is­sues.

Norma’s client base is very di­verse, rang­ing from five-year-old chil­dren to seniors.

Chil­dren can be as­sisted with a range of is­sues from ADHD to asthma – treat­ing your child at an early age can help min­imise their is­sues as they grow.

Hor­monal is­sues can cre­ate havoc in a teenager’s life and re­flex­ol­ogy has been found to sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove their symp­toms and sub­se­quently their lives.

Preg­nant women ben­e­fit greatly from re­flex­ol­ogy as they go through a myr­iad of phys­i­cal and hor­monal changes to cater for the grow­ing baby.

As for seniors, through the years our body sys­tems be­gin to slow down and changes of­ten cause health con­cerns.

As well as re­duc­ing the ef­fect of par­tic­u­lar symp­toms, re­flex­ol­ogy also pro­motes deep re­lax­ation.

This helps you stay healthy, im­prove your well-be­ing and main­tain vi­tal­ity.

Lo­cated in a quiet leafy

en­vi­ron­ment, the mo­ment you step foot in­side Norma’s pri­vate stu­dio at Re­flex­ol­ogy on Buderim you in­stantly feel re­laxed.

So, take con­trol of your health and con­tact Norma to­day to dis­cuss how a re­flex­ol­ogy or com­bi­na­tion of treat­ments could as­sist you.

Flex­i­ble af­ter-hour ap­point­ments are also avail­able.
