Reflexology treatment in Skipton with Nikki CooksonReflexology can help to reduce stress and promotes self relaxation. It will be beneficial for both the psychological and physical elements of the body and mind. Many physical illness can begin or are exaggerated by the body being under stress. This is an effective way of helping oneself. The first treatment is approximately 75 minutes, which will allow time for a thorough medical consultation. Subsequent treatments will be 60 minutes.

For the treatment you can sit down or if you prefer lay on the couch whichever is the most comfortable to you. Only your feet and lower legs are exposed. An emollient cream is applied to the leg to help reduce friction on the skin. The foot and lower legs are massaged and then warmed up with a relaxation program. The foot and lower leg are then finger or thumb walked over in slow gentle action. The areas and zones of the foot relate to the form of your body.
