Address: Marie Ray Reflexology, Raheen Industrial Estate, Athenry, County: Galway
What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that encourages the body to balance and heal itself. It involves applying finger or thumb pressure to specific points on the hands and feet. These points are called "reflex's" and they "mirror" the organs and structures of the body as well as a person's emotional health. In this way, the hands and feet are "mini-maps" of the body that can be used to encourage holistic healing.
Marie Ray is an expert reflexologist operating out of locations in both Galway and Athenry, she can even do house calls.
During treatments you will be seated in a reclining chair with your shoes and socks removed. The atmosphere is one of quiet and calm relaxation. Each reflex point on both feet will be activated in sequence. In order to maintain the benefits of the treatment aftercare advice will be given.
Depending on which conditions are prevailing a short course of weekly treatments may be advised. Maintenance treatments may be recommended on a monthly basis.
Marie is available for appointments mainly in the evenings but also on Saturdays, just call 087 2846318 to enquire about availability.
There are over 7000 nerve endings in the feet.
Often mistaken for a foot massage, the ancient art of reflexology accesses these nerve endings which are linked to every organ and system of the body. Through skilful manipulation a reflexologist can help to unblock the flow of energy in organs and rebalance entire systems.
Reflexology is a complementary therapy, that is, it is used in conjunction with conventional medicine to assist in the body’s recovery from certain diseases and illnesses. It does not diagnose or cure.
It is particularly useful for stress related conditions as it helps to discharge the negative effects of stress and stimulate the body’s own healing.
There is a general acceptance that illness and disease do not occur ‘out of the blue’ nor can they be solely attributed to a virus or bacteria. The reality is, we do not simply ‘catch the flu’ from someone else. When our immune system is depleted below the level of resistance required to successfully fight a disease then we succumb and become ill.
