What is Reflexology?
Even if you do not have stress or anxiety, you can gain many benefits from a Leeds reflexology session at Circle 8 Massage, but we will discuss these in the next section. Now, we need to explain what reflexology is and how it works. The best way to describe reflexology is as an energy-based therapy. We will guess that you are now thinking about how reflexology works. How can pressure alleviate pain, stress and tension?
The primary principle of reflexology is to target the main reflex points on the hands and feet. So, how does it work? The thesis behind reflexology is that both the hands and feet are directly linked to the nervous system, organs, and skeletal structure. These pressure points are stimulated by applying a certain amount of pressure. It is worth noting that each pressure point has a different technique or application, and the amount of pressure will cause a different reaction. What we mean is it is believed that specific pressure points can relieve stress or reduce anxiety. Our reflexologists are highly trained and knowledgeable, so they will discuss what aims you want from the session.
Why Do You Need to Book a Reflexology Session?
We are confident that we will help you restore the equilibrium in your body by carefully manipulating the pressure points on your hands and feet. Reflexology in Leeds is quite similar to acupuncture because it targets pressure points on the body. Reflexology is a non-invasive treatment, which is what differentiates it from acupuncture. Therefore, reflexology is an appropriate treatment option for people of all ages. What’s more, if you dislike needles, you can receive the same benefits as you would from acupuncture. Actually, we would argue that reflexology is a better treatment option than acupuncture. The way reflexology is conducted is impressive; it is specific movements on the pressure points which should result in you feeling rejuvenated, invigorated and more centred.
One of our main aims at Circle 8 massage is to assist our patients, and we want to help remove their pain or at least alleviate it.
Finally, reflexology is ideal for everyone as it is suitable for all age groups. Even if you do not have anxiety or pain, you might be stressed without releasing it. If you have reflexology, you could leave feeling more revitalised than before. So, what are you waiting for? We really think that you should speak to a friendly Circle 8 massage team member to discuss how reflexology can improve your health and well-being.
Ant was welcoming, took my pain history and talked me through what he was manipulating. Been having a lot of trouble with my left hip, went for a walk today and no hint of old pain. He sent me exercises to do after my appointment to continue to strengthen my problem areas. Will be booking again soon.
Ant is brilliant – he really knows anatomy and massage, and will not only fix you with his hands, but also send you exercises to help prevent issues reoccurring. In addition, you’ll have a good chat, get film recommendations, and all with alt rock background music – far better than the usual ambient pan pipe nonsense. Highly recommended!
Ant is brilliant ! He has the knowledge of a great physio combined with strong and targeted massage technique that just works and gets me moving again ! Turned up with a sore kneee that wouldnt bend left completely fine and fixed plus a clear understanding of what had caused the problem. He even emailed me exercises later that day to help avoid future problems. Cannot recommend enough !! Thanks Ant !
Really good massage. I’ve been used to massage therapists just going in with their hands and not asking questions, but Jessika talked to me about my motivations for booking and then worked on the specific areas that needed it. I came out feeling like I had clouds for muscles, and my posture is already better. Amazing!
I’ve had chronic issues with my neck and back and I always leave Circle 8 feeling miles better. Ant is very knowledgeable and always makes sure to explain what may be causing the pain and discomfort. He is brilliant at what he does and is also really friendly. Definitely would recommend!
Circle8 is top notch for any niggles you might have, however big or small. Ant and the team are mega knowledgeable, they can feel exactly where you pain might be coming from, release your tension professionally, and even offer follow up exercises and mobility work to treat and prevent further issues. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for sports massage in Leeds city centre.
Best massage ive ever had. Ant is really friendly, great to chat to on the more painful areas of the massage and excellent aftercare advice. Wish I’d have found this place sooner! Cannot recommend enough, will definitely be back!
