What is Reflexology?
In Reflexology, the feet are viewed as a map of the body. Each part of the foot represents different organs or systems. An example of this would be: the toes represent the head, pads reflect lungs, arch of the foot connects with the digestive system etc. Pressure is applied to particular areas of the feet to promote healing in the effected organ or system. During the reflexology treatment, Susan looks for other signs on the feet which may indicate disharmony in the body. People are usually surprised about what can show up in a session, often stuff that clients may have long since forgotten about (old injuries, scars from surgery etc).
Susan’s background in Reflexology:
Susan first started using Reflexology in her childhood, when she would massage the feet of sick relatives. Although she wasn’t aware that she was using reflexology, even then she was amazed at the healing effect of this simple therapy. It wasn’t until years later, when she studied Holistic Therapies in Senior College Dun Laoghaire, that she realised Reflexology was an entire holistic therapy in it’s own right. Since studying Reflexology, she has gained over 10 years experience, first with clients in Rathfarnham, Dublin, and now in Naas, Co. Kildare.
