Professional reflexology (chi and craniosacral)

Had reflexology before? Probably not like this …

Most noteworthy, my perspective on this modality differs from “salon-type” or standard Western reflexology. The whole-body approach I adopt aims at releasing stuck life force and provide support for specific body systems. Therefore the main method I use is the chi / pressure point system developed by Moss Arnold of the Australian College of Chi Reflexology (http://www.chi-reflexology.com.au/). This technique focuses on Anatomical Reflection Theory and the gateways on the Traditional Chinese acupuncture meridians. Another system I use is the craniosacral approach developed by French osteopath Dr Martine Faure-Alderson (http://www.craniosacralreflexologyinternational.com/). Since treatments may integrate aspects of Bowen therapy, Advanced Energy Healing and Oriental Therapies/philosophies, sessions are deeply relaxing and therefore balancing and harmonising as a result.

My experience shows …

Especially relevant for my practice is that the main concern of many clients is pain first of all, or at least discomfort. At times the level of either can be too great to allow an initial Bowen assessment, let alone treatment. Furthermore, the client will anticipate more pain. And this therefore leads to increased stress before improvement. The craniosacral approach to reflexology has hence served well as an introduction to both assessment and treatment. The client does not need to move for this approach and as a result this means less stress, discomfort and pain.

Over the years my experience with cancer patients has shown that professional reflexology can indeed make a positive difference  at a crucial stage in life (http://www.avenuestowholeness.com.au/testimonials/). Because reflex work brings about physiological changes, the conclusion is often an improved sense of wellbeing and mobility.
