Reflexology is a holistic treatment designed to treat the mind, body and spirit allowing the body to heal on both a physical and emotional level. Each treatment provides non-invasive, relaxing and effective therapy by applying pressure through the fingers to specific points on and around the feet, known as ‘reflexes’. The treatment stimulates nerve endings, encourages the restoration of good health and well-being, whilst releasing blocked energy that has built up over a period of time. Evidence supporting the practice of Reflexology has appeared in different cultures and ages throughout the world, even dating back to Egyptian times.
• Promoting deep relaxation
• Stimulating healing mechanisms within the body
• Pain relief (back, shoulder and knees)
• Detoxifying the body and stimulating the nervous system.
• Promoting energy balance
• Increasing circulation, supporting and improving the immune system
Are you currently being treated for a condition by a GP?
Not to worry as a full medical consultation will be taken at the first appointment and if necessary, we will obtain your GP’s permission before any treatment can take place. Your health and safety always come first.
The reflexology treatment lasts around an hour, during which time you are reclined comfortably on a special back supporting chair or a treatment couch. Your feet are cleansed at the start of the treatment and a variety of reflexology techniques are used to apply pressure to the various reflex points of the feet. The treatments can either take place in the comfort of your own home or in one of our two consultation rooms. As a non-invasive therapy, the treatment does not require the removal of any clothes.

‘Caprius….well what can I say ‘blissful’, took me to a magical place. I had been having pain with my left shoulder for six months. I had tried physio, seen a chiropractor and decided to try Reflexology. After a professional consultation where I was made to feel comfortable, my treatment began…… I can only recall the first twenty minutes as I ‘drifted off’. After being brought back from my ‘fluffy cloud’ I felt so peaceful and rested. My shoulder pain had settled. I highly recommend Caprius and intend to visit them for Reflexology treatments in the future.’
Reflexology can benefit our children in so many ways and can be given from a new born baby. The gentle stimulation helps develop a nurturing way in which children can learn to relax deeply, which induces good sleep, improve the immune system to help fight against infection and balance the energy levels to help reduce hyperactivity.
Giving regular or semi-regular Reflexology to a child or teenager can also help them to cope with everyday issues that they face such as:
- Eating problems
- Digestive complaints
- Exam stress
- Stress from parental divorce or loss
- Hormone imbalances.
Any of these sound familiar?
Started at an early age, Reflexology can really help your child as they grow up, teaching them the importance of ‘me’ time and showing them how to care for their feet. It also promotes self healing within the body to keep the right equilibrium, whilst re-balancing all the major systems in the body such as the immune system (fights infections) and endocrine system (controls hormones that aid development and growth).
For a child up to the age of 10 years, a half hour treatment would be required. For older children and teenagers, a full treatment would be beneficial. If you are unsure that your child may not sit still for that long, why not try one of our taster sessions of 20 minutes.
In a world where stress effects us all on a daily or semi-daily basis, these treatments can teach your child how to relax and chill out, aiding them to manage the stress that they may experience at any given time.
These treatments can be given in the comfort of your own home or in one of our treatments rooms. It is a delight to work with children and pass on these useful life tools. We can treat infants through to teenagers. We do ask however, that any minor under the age of 16, must be accompanied by a guardian or parent who will need to sign the consent forms.
