Reflexology can provide relief for sufferers of headaches and migraines
According to the Migraine Trust, tension headaches and migraines are the second and third most common ailments in the world.
Around 15% of the population report that they suffer from migraine attacks with this particularly severe form of headache affecting women disproportionately more than men.
How reflexology relieves headaches
Relieving headaches and migraines is one of the most popular applications of reflexology.
Reflexologists apply gentle pressure to reflex areas in your feet which correspond to different parts of your body.
Stimulating these areas on your feet opens neural pathways, improves circualtion and removes tension stored in parts of your body such as your neck and shoulders.
Reflexology also helps flush out toxins such as alcohol and caffeine which if taken in excess can lead to headaches and migraines.
What my clients say about headaches and migraines
Many of my clients complain of tension headaches which are an unwanted by-product of the busy lives that they lead.
They use reflexology to take this tension away and generally find that their headaches disappear after their treatment and particulatly when they also rehydrate and rest.

Reflexology is a complementary health therapy
Reflexology is a complementary health therapy. It works alongside conventional medicine.
It acts on the whole body rather than on specific conditions and ailments.
Over a course of treatments reflexology will bring your body back into balance.
Reflexologists do not diagnose, prescribe or treat for a specific condition.
Reflexology is not a substitute for conventional medicine and should not be taken instead of medical treatments. However, it may complement your medical treatment and is often available through private health insurance plans.
