Therapeutic Reflexology Treatments

Vacuflex and Meridian Therapy


As well as the standard reflexology treatments, I also offer additional services such as Vaccuflex and Meridian Therapy. Vaccuflex combines traditional reflexology with meridian therapy which is much like acupuncture but leaving out the needles, without losing the human touch factor.

For this treatment I use the Inge Douglas Method. The Dougans International Vacuflex Concepts uses a vacuum boot foot reflexology treatment together with a vacuum cupping treatment sequence along the acupuncture meridians that transverse the whole body.

This treatment involves using more modern technology rather than just my own hands. Specialised boots help stimulate the reflex points in the feet and with hands suction pads are used to create vibrations along acupuncture points. Possibly the most remarkable feature of a Vacuflex Concepts treatment is the discolouration that appears on the plantar and dorsal regions of the feet when the boots are removed. This is caused by the negative vacuum pressure and highlights areas of reflex and meridian congestion. The colours remain for approximately 15-30 seconds during which time the therapist can "assess" and "interpret" what is reflected. Furthermore, the vacuum pressure delivers the treatment to all the reflexes and meridian points

For ages the Chinese have viewed illness as blocked energy along the meridians in the body. Once unblocked, this energy is allowed to flow freely enabling the body to holistically improve itself. This treatment can offer considerable benefits for numerous ailments and so you may find this treatment is more suited to you than more traditional reflexology.
