REFLEXOLOGY

The effect of Reflexology on people with MS.

Reflexology is the science which deals with the principle that reflexes in the hands and feet are connected to different parts of the body.

The body is divided into 10 zones, pressure to one zone will affect parts of the body in that zone

Reflexology relaxes the client and promotes healing

The symptoms responding well to treatment are:

AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy is the use of organic essences of aromatic plants (essential oils) through inhalation and application to restore or enhance health, beauty and well-being

The principle of Aromatherapy is to strengthen an indi­viduals self-healing process by preventative methods and indirect stimulation of the immune system

Aromatherapy is therefore beneficial to people with MS because;

  • An Aromatherapy massage is a pleasant experience and is something to look forward to
  • It stimulates the immune system and helps to reduce minor illnesses
  • Aromatherapy works on the muscles improving tone and encourages continued use. 

 

HEAD MASSAGE

The aim of head massage is to release the stress that has accumulated in the tissues, muscles and joints of the head, face, neck and shoulders.

What does it involve?

The client, fully clothed, sits on a chair for the treatment. The therapist uses a range of different movements including application of deep kneading and compression movements over the neck, shoulder and scalp areas. In addition, the therapist will also gently stimulate and stroke pressure points on the face. The session will usually last from twenty to forty-five minutes and most therapists like their clients to sit quietly for ten to twenty minutes once the massage has been completed.

What is it good for?

Head massage is especially good for relieving stress, tension, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, migraine and sinusitis. Clients report that the experience is deeply calming and relaxing, leaving them feeling energised and revitalised and better able to concentrate.

What are the benefits?

Head massage helps increase joint mobility and flexibility in the neck and shoulders, improves blood circulation and lymphatic flow, frees knots of muscular tension, relaxes connective tissue and aids in the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products. It is particularly good for reducing the effects of stress and tension. It also helps to de-clutter the mind.
