Nerve Reflexology for Pain Relief

9th August 2017

Reflexology or ‘zone pressure’ therapy (as developed and applied by Dr. William Fitzgerald in the late 1880’s and early 1900’s), was used to affect local anaesthetic while Dr. Fitzgerald performed minor surgery for his patients.

This is quite significant to note and while perhaps not the most common use of the therapy today, it does indicate that there are quite a lot more applications of reflexology to be explored.

Personally, I have already explored the aspect of pain relief with a number clients. The results have been interesting as sometimes pain relief was attained within minutes, using a combination of alternating pressure on specific reflex points and verbal suggestion or guided visualisation with the client.

In September 2017, I had the opportunity to study with the first reflexologist in the world to attain Doctorate level of education in the field of reflexology therapy. During our training module Dr. Samuel covered the theory and practice of Nerve Reflexology with specific application for Pain relief.

As I am also a former Science graduate and an advocate for authenticity, honest enquiry is something I truly respect.

Reflexology is covered by Health Insurers once your therapist is registered with a recognised body such as Irish Reflexologists Institute Ltd.

            Motivation & Focus        

    The reflexology treatment was wonderful! It was just what I needed. I started running again which I always enjoy but I had lost my motivation for a very long time. So, the next day knowing I had two hours free I just started jogging all along the west-peer and surroundings. Felt great and focused afterwards.

  •           Stress-free Zone           

    Caroline is an excellent therapist with extraordinary skills. The healing element is vital but she manages to put her clients in a total stress free zone. I adored the chimes as the music played by some therapists can be so very distracting. Caroline has healing hands and I felt excellent afterwards

    Thank you so much for reflexology! Before treatment I was tired and my feet hurt from walking around. Afterward, I felt so much more energetic, I felt like I was walking on air and the swelling had gone down in my broken arm.
