More Information about Reflexology
Reflexology is the holistic understanding, study and practice of treating points and areas in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Using precise hand and finger techniques, a reflexologist can improve circulation, promote relaxation and enable homeostasis. This encourages the person’s own healing systems to be activated to maintain well-being.
Reflexology is a gentle healing art, dating back to ancient Egypt and China. The benefits of this therapy were acknowledged even then and can be seen in Egyptian tomb artwork from around 2000 BC. This depicts a scene of the giving and receiving of foot massage.
In 1913 Dr William Fitzgerald introduced Reflexology to the West. He found that the application of pressure to one part of the body could create a response in another. This reflex relationship was found to lie within certain longitudinal zones of which there were ten in the body. Fitzgerald called this “zone therapy”.
In the 1930’s Eunice Ingham further developed the study of zone therapy, becoming the reflexology we know today. She determined that the reflexes on the feet and hands were an exact mirror image of the organs of the body.
Reflexology is for all ages and can relieve a range of acute or chronic conditions. After you have completed a course of reflexology treatment for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.
While many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body or counteracting stress, many doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as an effective therapy. Reflexology helps us to cope on a physical, mental and emotional level, encouraging us to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives.
The Reflexology practitioner will first conduct a full personal consultation. This will look into your past and present health, also your lifestyle. The consultation enables the treatment to be tailored to your specific needs. All this will be discussed on a confidential basis.
A reflexology treatment lasts for approximately one hour. The feet are treated, so you simply remove your socks and shoes. You will be invited to sit or lie on a comfortable treatment chair or couch. The reflexologist will use their hands to apply precise pressure techniques to the feet treating specific points which correspond to organs and systems of the body.
Following treatment, any significant findings will be discussed with you. As the effects of reflexology are cumulative, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments.
To gain maximum benefit from your reflexology treatment try to rest afterwards, this helps to boost the body’s natural healing abilities. Increasing the amount of water that you drink can help to flush toxins from your system, aiding the detoxifying process.
Listen to your body, put aside time to relax. After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people describe a sense of well-being and relaxation; sometimes people can feel lethargic, nauseous or tearful, this is transitory and is a part of the healing process. This is vital feedback for the reflexologist, it shows how your body is responding to treatment, it will help to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Carla is a very knowledgeable and versatile therapist. I benefited tremendously from her Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Massage treatments – along with just having good chats. I can’t wait for the next one.
I attended Carla for Reflexology which was wonderful. I was left totally relaxed and felt like I was walking on air. Carla really knows her stuff about Reflexology and about the essential oils she uses. She was really kind and gifted me some of her homemade foot balm which was wonderful and made me feel like I was in a spa at home. Carla is a beautiful person inside and out and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
I would highly recommend going to Carla at Soul to Sole! I went for my very first reflexology treatment recently and I was amazed how great it was and how at ease Carla made me feel. I could actually feel it in my shoulder when Carla pressed the shoulder point on the sole of my foot! The reflexology treatment was followed by a lovely back massage and I slept very soundly that night – and this is not something I do very often. I will definitely be back for both treatments again very soon.
So many amazing treatments and so so accommodating !!! Massive improvement in my pain levels for an ongoing chronic knee issue through the reflexology I have done on a regular basis with Carla.
I had the pure pleasure of receiving two distance IET (healing with Angels) healings with Carla. These experiences really enable you to step back from the stresses and confusions of life that we all feel, and even more profoundly so, now. I found myself experiencing a lovely sense of peace and a feeling of being nurtured and cared for. It’s a time when you can give yourself permission to be calm and take time out to feed your soul and inner spirit.
Carla is a wonderful and loving human being who cares deeply for her clients. She is a very devoted and conscientious therapist. I have also received Reflexology, Hot stone massage and Reiki from Carla. Pure heaven! And what a relief for tired and sore body and muscles. I always treat myself to one of her beautiful hand-made products, created with all-natural products and essential oils; body scrubs, balms, sleep potions, etc. Just bliss! I cannot recommend Carla enough!
Carla is a true healer! I highly recommend her services – whatever they are, wherever she is! She is great at what she does – Yoga, Reflexology, Coaching, Sound Healing -all of it. She is fantastic at giving massages too. I love her honest, cheerful, up-beat, encouraging, and positive energy. She also has endless energy! Carla is a loving, kind, honest and dedicated healer that truly knows how to ‘read’ energy in order to facilitate healing! I was lucky to have met her in Hawaii at a health retreat she helped organise and run. She was very busy in the retreat, and worked day and night never complaining. Always smiling and ready to help! Carla is dedicated to her craft and clients and is sincere and gifted!
Carla is absolutely amazing and what she does! I have had pregnancy Reflexology and Hot stone aromatherapy massages from her along with completing an online workshop called Introduction to Aromatherapy. I have purchased wonderful essential oils from her too. Carla’s knowledge and enthusiasm is remarkable. The positive vibes and energy you get from being around her is beautiful. Highly recommended!
Carla is the best! She is so amazing at what she does and creates a calming and healing space. I had a massage treatment as well as IET and reflexology with Carla at the 8 day Rebirth and Refresh Retreat in Hawaii and it was bliss. I felt so safe and relaxed and I felt like I was on a cloud after the sessions. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and truly cares about you and your healing journey. I can’t wait to see her again!
I have been attending Carla for over a year for treatments including massage, reflexology and IET. She has a great gift for putting you at your ease, for understanding what you need in a treatment and for providing a relaxing and soothing environment. She is also warm, friendly and a supportive person. Most recently I have received distance IET which I found just as effective as in-person treatments. At this stressful time, (COVID-19) Carla provides time for relaxing; rejuvenating treatments that help me feel more balanced and calm. She’s an amazing lady.
I have had reflexology and massage throughout my pregnancy with Carla. I honestly believe it helped me to have a very healthy happy pregnancy. Carla takes such great care with her clients listening to them and providing tailored treatments according to how you feel on each visit. I cannot recommend Carla highly enough. Not only is she excellent professionally she is also a very kind, caring and compassionate person. One that really cares about both her work and her clients.
