Foot Reflex Massage is the type of foot massage I’m trained in. It was created by Christine Courtney of Obus School of Holistic Therapies in Leixlip, Co. Kildare. It’s a combination of Swiss Reflex Massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine using the meridians of the body. Christine has found Foot Reflex Massage to be a very successful treatment, bringing relieve from stress, aches and pains and other problems.
I loved learning the Foot Reflex Massage because it fits in with my theory that a gentle massage is vitally important as it activates the body’s parasympathetic nervous system. This aspect of our nervous system deals with regeneration, recharging, healing and growth. It’s the aspect that improves digestion and helps release tension from the body. If there was a knot in a piece of rope, we wouldn’t try and take it out deeply or roughly. A knot is gently teased out of a piece of rope. I believe that we need to treat our bodies just as gently and tease out the knots and tension so the parasympathetic nervous system can be activated. When we’re busy and going about our day and dealing with trauma, it’s the sympathetic nervous system that’s activated. It is so important to take breaks from this by effectively activating the parasympathetic nervous system.

Holistic therapies do not replace the need for medical attention. Holistic therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones. Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one. There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.
