View Full Version : Reflexology

Normally my panic attacks only last a relatively short period, but last year after a big one my heart rate wouldn't slow down for a couple of weeks, the top of my head felt like it had vanished and I had a constant 'floaty' feeling.

My husband booked me in for a reflexology session that was supposed to be an hour long, and during it not only did my heart rate slow but for the first time I felt real again - and the top of my head felt like it was back !
The reflexologist was a bit of a crazy hippy, but excellent at what she did - she even did an extra half hour for free as she said that I seemed so strung out that I clearly needed it !

The main thing was her holding both of my feet quite firmly and putting pressure on the part of the foot that corresponds to the solar plexus in a slow rhythmic pulse beat. (I think it was somewhere in the middle top of each foot).

When I got home I had my first proper sleep in ages.

Claire I am so glad this helped!!!

I am halfway through my training to be a reflexologist so its nice to get opinions of the therapy.

Love Piglet (another crazy hippy type :D:D:D)!!!!!!!!!!

"Supposing a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?" said Piglet.
"Supposing it didn't," said Pooh after careful thought.

hey claire and Piglet.

One of my bessie mates is training at the mo to be a reflexologist, she is in the middle of her exams.
I love to be practised on, even if it doesnt do anything, the time out and relaxation is fab!!!
