stonesAt Stepping Stones Reflexology we believe in treating all our clients holistically. Simply put holistic means whole, that is mind, body and spirit together. Complementary therapists like reflexologists look at the whole person, their lifestyle, their work and home life, medical background etc. and approach treatment holistically.

The reasoning behind this is simple, in that we would all agree that if we are physically unwell, then often our mental performance will suffer. Likewise if we are under a lot of mental stress, then we are likely to feel physically low. The holistic approach is one in which treatment is given to the whole (mind, body and spirit) rather than just to the symptoms of the problem. In this way the holistic therapist is looking towards treating the root causes of the condition, at the same time as trying to ease the symptoms.

stones3This holistic approach is at the heart of all complementary therapies and as the word complementary suggests, these therapies are intended to complement, not replace conventional medicine. If for example, you are taking prescribed medication you should not stop doing so. The treatment is complementary not alternative.

Reflexology may provide natural drug free solutions to many of today’s commonly suffered ailments.

The role of holistic therapies like reflexology is to complement the work done by increasingly hard pressed health services. It is now recognised by many of the medical professions that complementary therapies have a very important role to play in health care as they may be both curative and preventative, as they may help with the relief of both chronic and acute conditions in a natural way. The use of complementary treatment can be particularly beneficial in combating long-term conditions, and also when the use of drugs is either inadvisable or not desired.
