Reflexology treatments by Shantih Therapies Ireland involve working on the feet or hands to treat the whole body. It is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all glands, organs and structures of the body. It treats the whole person, not just the symptoms of disease. This is why it is referred to as being a holistic treatment
It is simple and non-invasive. Reflexologists use pressure techniques on the reflexes stimulating the related reflex point in the body, which stimulates the body’s own healing processes in order to keep it in homeostasis ie. balance.
Reflexology is suitable for everyone whatever their age or state of health. It is a very relaxing treatment.
During and after the treatment the client will experience a sense of vitality and well-being and their body will continue to unblock energy, restoring energy-flow and stimulating the body’s own natural healing powers.
You do not have to be ill to have reflexology. It is a good way of relaxing, balancing and harmonising the body.

Infertility is such a charged subject and a very sensitive issue for most couples. It is a time filled with anxiety, stressful appointments and unanswered questions.
There can be a lot of emphasis on the medical side of the issue. And yes, tests need to be done, and results gotten and a plan put in place. Stress is a major factor in the cause of illness and also affects our ability to conceive and have that long for baby. Causes of infertility are numerous and sometimes there are no explanations
I offer reflexology treatments to help relax the client in a safe and nurturing environment. I offer a listening ear to support you emotionally and work through the many thoughts that interfere with believing and trusting your body. I share practical information on infertility and on self-care practices.

Reflexology is a holistic treatment that helps to balance and normalise the functions of the reproductive and endocrine systems. Treatments can support your process whether through IVF or natural conception.
The aim of receiving these treatments is to help reduce your stress levels, balance your hormones, regulate your cycle and support the body achieving balance in preparation for a pregnancy.
Infertility issues affect both men and women and it is beneficial to treat both with reflexology.
Working with the client, a customised plan can be prepared to include reflexology sessions, fertility massage and a combination of other holistic treatments that would support this journey to motherhood.
Reflexology supports the journey from fertility to pregnancy. It has become a standard practice to avoid this treatment in the first 12 weeks until the pregnancy is well established.
However, from then until labour begins, reflexology is the most relaxing, calming and de-stressing treatment to receive. The body goes through many changes, both physically, mentally and emotionally during pregnancy.
Self-care is very important, eating properly, exercising and receiving emotional support from a professional reflexologist is a great combination to help you navigate the roller coaster of emotions and fears that can show up during this time.
Pregnancy is a happy fulfilling time. Sometimes minor disorders can show up interfering a little with this.

Facial Reflexology works on a similar basis as foot reflexology except we are working on the reflex points on the face to help stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms. It helps rebalance the body and provides an invaluable tool to reduce the effects of stress.
It draws on a combination of Native American techniques and Asian body maps. I use a crystal-infused Elixir which nourishes the skin, leaving it more radiant with a firmer and glowing complexion. This has a very positive emotional benefit to the recipient of facial reflexology.
Facial Reflexology is so relaxing and calming to receive. Every face is unique, no two are the same and this treatment addresses this individuality.
Our faces tend to show when we are stressed and under pressure. It reflects on the outside how we are feeling on the inside. This healing modality relieves tension in the muscle tissue, improves lymphatic drainage and circulation relieving the effects and appearance of stress on our bodies and faces.
As well as improving your health and wellbeing, it has unique benefits for certain conditions for example migraines, bruxism, bell’s palsy and sinus conditions.
This gives radiance and glow the natural way.
