Reflexology and Sleep Problems

Like many people I have had times when I have struggled with sleep. This has given me a deeper understanding of the importance of the restorative power of sleep to our health and well-being.

I remember employing various good sleep habits such as going to bed and getting up at around the same time each day, getting adequate exercise, reducing caffeine and installing blackout blinds in my bedroom. Although I found these to be helpful, it was the natural relaxation of regular reflexology that really seemed to improve my sleep in the long run. My clients often echo this experience, reporting improved sleep following reflexology.

Some of the areas I generally give extra attention to include the reflex points of the pineal, pituitary & adrenal glands, the solar plexus and the diaphragm.

Clients may have sleep difficulties for a variety of different reasons, and I tailor the reflexology session to their individual needs.

Naturally if you are having a serious or persistent lack of sleep please consult with your GP.
