Reflexology & Hayfever

pablo (8)

An excellent way to relieve those tell tale signs of HAYFEVER

Are you looking forward to summer or are you one of many preparing to battle the symptoms of hayfever?  Does constant sneezing, runny/blocked nose, red, watery, itchy eyes and an associated itchy throat sound familiar?  Then you are one of 2 to 3 million people in Britain who live with hay fever every year.

Many resort to taking antihistamines, nasal sprays containing steroids or eye drops to combat these symptoms. The side effects of some medicines can leave you feeling quite lethargic…..is this really the way you imagined summer….?

Jane Long MAR may help such people with Reflexology.  According to Reflexologists, the feet and hands are a mirror of the body.  Pressure placed on specific reflex points can be used to treat corresponding areas of the body. It stimulates natural healing powers and promotes well being. A truly relaxing treatment!

Hay fever can occur at different times of year as different pollens are present and thus the time that you are affected depends on the pollen to which you are allergic. Other factors which may aggravate the situation are the weather and the air quality.

Hay fever often runs in families, and is also related to asthma and eczema. It is quite common to find a family with some members with asthma, some with hay fever, and some with eczema. Any individual might have more than one of these conditions.

Many people just get by and put up with hay fever symptoms.  Some are now finding Reflexology help’s ease symptoms while coming for their regular wellness sessions.

As a REFLEXOLOGIST, Jane Long has worked with several people to help alleviate hay fever symptoms at her clinic. 

Karen from Kilburn says….

“I have suffered with hayfever since my teens. I had been seeing Jane at least once a month to help me with an unrelated matter.  Then August came.  Every August there is one particular plant in bloom and it gets me every time!  My eyes began to water and the irritation and swollen feeling in my nose was unbearable.  This was a really inconvenient as I was working as a stylist on a BBC drama and the pressure was on – I had loads of work to do.   I visited Jane at her clinic and told her about the symptoms I had.  She then went on to give me a deeply relaxing but very firm treatment.  Afterwards she told me to drink a lot of water and nettle tea and to let her know how I felt in a few days time.  The next morning I woke up with no irritation whatsoever.  I went to work which involved shopping in Oxford Street – that was bound to trigger symptoms off – but no –they had been alleviated.  I was able to get through the day without sneezing and clearing my throat – I definitely felt toxin free!  Thanks Jane

How Reflexology Helps People Experiencing Stress and Anxiety

I am treating more and more clients for stress and anxiety in my Reflexology clinic.

Many have been signed off work to try and recover.  Some are on medication and others are not.  Some have emotionally “cut them selves off”. They cannot say how they feel.  The best way some of my clients can describe how they feel is “vacant”, “empty” or “numb”.

So what happens when you book into visit to Calm Therapy Reflexology? 

Firstly, I talk with my clients and ask a few general health questions.  By listening to them I can get a better understanding of where their energy is blocked or stagnated and needs releasing.  The body is reflected on a Reflexology map and is based on the foot along 10 longitudinal lines. So I can then give a treatment specific to their needs.

When the Reflexology session begins, I make sure they are comfortably lying on their back on the treatment couch.  If someone is highly stressed, I can encourage them to be more aware of their breathing.  I then start the Reflexology with ALOT of relaxation techniques and then continue to give an hour long session.  During this hour, all my client can do is lie there and receive the treatment.  This is a massive part of the therapy.  People who are highly stressed are not used to giving themselves time out and receiving.  They are usually the ones giving away all their reserves and energy, whether it be at work or home life.  They may even have experienced a recent trauma.   Reflexology releases a lot of stress and tension during the session and I notice a real positive difference in my clients demeanour as they come to the end of their hour.

This is a brilliant summary by Lynn Booth, the creator of Vertical Reflex Therapy.

“Reflexologists are trained to help balance the mind and body and to maintain this state of homeostasis the body needs to run smoothly. When there is a malfunction in the body it is thrown off balance. Reflexology helps to sustain a natural equilibrium in every gland, organ, muscle, tissue and cell in the body through stimulation of pressure points, called reflexes on the hands and feet.”

People who live with stress and anxiety experience a lot of tension in the upper part of their body, head, neck shoulders and digestive areas.  So this is why Reflexology is so good for this condition.  Treating the feet is encouraging their energy to flow more freely all around their body.  Touching the feet helps them to feel grounded.  I have previously posted links to my Calm Therapy Eastbourne Facebook page about the importance of Grounding, walking bare foot and getting in touch with nature.  Getting out in the country and trips to the coast will definitely help those with stress and anxiety.

It will take more than one Reflexology session to feel that sense of balance and wellbeing, but thats what its all about.  These symptoms relating to stress and anxiety are there to slow you down.  It’s your body telling you that it’s time for a change or to start doing things in a different way. It’s time to look at yourself and invest in yourself.  And what better way to do that then to book yourself in for some Calm Therapy Reflexology.

What’s Stopping You Visit A Reflexologist?

Are you embarrassed about the appearance of your feet?
Do you describe your feet as “hooves”?
Are your feet ticklish when touched?

reflex-foot

These could be possible reasons why you would not consider booking in for a Reflexology session!

During a typical Reflexology session, general pressure is applied to specific points on the feet which correspond to particular parts of the body.  This in turn will:

Reduce Stress Levels
Improve Your Sleep Pattern
Improve Your Mood and Wellbeing
Release Emotional Tension

A good Reflexologist will have a firm grip of your feet, therefore preventing any tickling sensations.

So What Can You Do?

1) Book A Facial Reflexology Session
When receiving this treatment, emotional stress will be released from your face as well as experiencing the benefits of conventional Foot Reflexology.
You will glow from within after Facial Reflexology.

2) Book A Hand Reflexology Session.
This is a deeply relaxing treatment as the hands are better connected to the spine.
You can ask to finish your Hand Reflexology session with 10 minutes of Foot Reflexology to see if you like it.

3) Book to see a Podiatrist or Chiropodist.
Get your feet healthy and in great shape!

4) Love Your Feet
Your feet work hard for you carrying you around, getting you to where you want to be.
Practise self care, treat them well, give yourself a mini pedicure.
Enjoy buying different colour nail polish, look good and feel good!
