Reflexology

 

Reflexology involves the massage of specific areas on the feet to stimulate the body’s healing ability. This might help to improve circulation and restore well-being. The origins of Reflexology can be traced back to China and Egypt.

 

There are many nerve endings in the feet. Hence, pressure applied to the feet helps to release tension in the body and restore the body balance. Nowadays Reflexology is mainly used as a preventative therapy and as a part of treatments to restore health. It might help

 

•  balancing body energy

•  reducing tension within the body, especially the central nervous system

•  strengthening immunological hormonal systems

•  supporting the body cleansing processes

•  maintaining muscle tone balance

 

 

A Patient’s experience of Reflexology in combination with Acupuncture:

 

“Having suffered with peripheral neuropathy in my feet for six years and used various drugs and lotions recommended by the NHS to no avail, I saw an advert in a local magazine by Mrs Bo Mander offering Acupuncture treatment. Having attended Mrs Bo Mander’s surgery for few times, I can feel a marked improvement in my feet and would thoroughly recommended this excellent treatment to anyone with a similar problem.”

Acupressure

 

Acupressure is the use of finger pressure on specific acupuncture points. This is often referred to as ‘Acupuncture without needles’. Used for thousands of years in China, Acupressure is based on the same principles as Acupuncture. It works on the energy channels or meridians. Practitioners apply fingers to points which may be in the areas where symptoms exist and at other parts of the body on the relevant meridian channels. The pressure can be gentle or deep. Conditions which may be helped by acupressure include:

 

•  headache

•  backache

•  neck ache

•  fibromyalgia

•  some digestive disorders

•  exhaustion

•  emotional distress

•  stress

 

What to expect

 

Acupressure treatment is non-invasive and it can be a deeply relaxing experience. The patient would rest on a couch and the practitioner would use a combination of Acupressure points to release tension in the body and restore harmony. Bo has been trained in Acupuncture as well as Acupressure; the diagnostic process and treatment principles are similar in both cases. The main difference is that, in Acupressure, no needles are used.

 

Bo offers Acupressure either by itself or in combination with other therapies.

 

A Patient’s experience:

 

"Bo taught Chi Kung to help my recovery after breast cancer surgery. Later on, following a stroke, even while I was in hospital I was still able to breathe healing to affected joints. Now Bo gives me regular expert treatment (Reflexology & Acupressure) and her kind encouragement helps me cope with vascular Parkinsonism. I am most grateful for all that does for me. The family says the difference Bo's treatment makes is spectacular."
