Why Reflexology Should Be On Everyone's Bucket List

Published on 8th August 2016


The Oxford English Dictionary defines the Bucket List as “A number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime” or, to put it more simply, stuff you want to do before it’s too late!

We were discussing bucket list ideas at the Centre recently and some of us had some interesting ones – such as scuba diving in the Maldives; ice skating in Central Park; writing a book; swimming the length of Windermere; driving a Mustang.  No shortage of imagination with this bunch!!

We then started wondering which of our treatments should be on everybody’s bucket list and we universally agreed that Reflexology should be right at the top!  Reflexology is the massage of specific points and areas on the feet, hands or ears and Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different organs and systems within the body.  This stimulation is believed to have a beneficial effect on the body.  Although not used to diagnose health problems, millions of people around the world use Reflexology to help with issues such as stress, anxiety, headaches and PMS.

So back to the Bucket List – here are our top 10 reasons why Reflexology should be on everyone’s Bucket List:

1st        Reflexology is a deeply relaxing treatment and this alone makes it a firm favourite

2nd       It aims to balance the whole body and help it work as effectively as possible

3rd        Circulation can be improved with Reflexology, particularly in the legs and feet

4th        Reflexology can help you feel more balanced and allows you to “let go” and relax which can have a positive impact on stress              levels

5th        It reduces tension throughout the whole body

6th        Reflexology helps to gently detoxify the body - which is why it is important to drink lots of water after a treatment to help              with the elmination of toxins 

7th        It can help boost the immune system thereby increasing the body’s natural ability to fight infection and disease

8th        Most clients report sleeping longer and deeper following Reflexology

9th        Even though Reflexology is a physical therapy it can also help on an emotional level

10th      The balancing effects of Reflexology means that you can feel re-energised following a treatment

So, whilst we may have to wait a while to experience the thrill of driving that Mustang, we can make a start on our bucket lists now by trying Reflexology!

"I booked my massage with Robert. He pin pointed the areas that needed the most attention and really worked through my knots, loosened up the tight muscles and relieved my tension. Best massage i've had. Very professional and friendly staff. Highly recommended!"
