Els De Ruysser is the founder of Alma Pura Therapies and she practises Angelic Reiki, Reflexology and Script Ash Method Life Coaching, here at The Monarchs Way Clinic.


ANGELIC REIKI

Angelic Reiki is a powerful healing modality that works with the highest energies of the Angelic Realm to bring about healing and balance on all levels to those receiving the healing energy. With Angelic Reiki we have the possibility for self-healing, and to send healing to other people, places and situations near and far.

During an Angelic Reiki Healing treatment I am simply a bridge for the angelic healing energy to pass to you. Receiving a treatment does not require belief in Angels, or Angelic Reiki, but an open mind and a desire to be well and happy. It is a blessing to give and receive these angelic healing sessions.

REFLEXOLOGY

What is reflexology?
Reflexology is a therapy based on the principle that there are small and specific areas of innervation in the hands and feet that correspond to specific muscle groups or organs of the body. In this system, the nerve endings in the extremities provide a "map" of the rest of the body. Examples are the base of the little toe representing the ear, or the ball of the foot representing the lung. Through the application of pressure on particular areas of the hands or feet, reflexology is said to promote benefits such as the relaxation of tension, improvement of circulation, and support of normalized function in the related area in the body.

What conditions can be helped with Reflexology?
Many people put up with long term conditions that are not resolved through conventional medical routes. Reflexology encourages the body's own healing processes, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Reflexology treats 'the whole person' and not just any current symptoms you may be experiencing. Many people report an enhanced sense of overall well-being as well as an improvement in their condition. After having completed a course of reflexology treatments for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.

Experience has shown reflexology may be helpful to people suffering from a wide range of issues including the following:

Physical Benefits
Anxiety and stress disorders
Problems associated with the reproductive system (menstrual problems, such as PMS, painful, scanty, heavy or irregular periods, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome and menopause can all be treated)
Problems with conception, male and female infertility, and loss of libido
Joint pain and joint mobility
Breathing disorders (all respiratory problems, including asthma, chest infections, cough infections, coughs and colds, ear, nose and throat problems can be ease with reflexology)
Sleep problems and insomnia
Problems with digestion and elimination(constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies and flatulence)
Blood sugar disorders
Skin disorders (acne, eczema, psoriasis and rashes)
Degenerative disorders(i.e. symptoms of MS and Parkinson’s disease)
Sinus disorders
Ear disorders
Hormonal imbalances
Circulatory problems
Irregular blood pressure
Toxin build up
Low immunity

Reflexology is not a therapy to diagnose disease. It is not a medical treatment. It does not cure, as only the body can do that, but it does facilitate healing and balance within the body. With continued commitment to reflexology treatments you can achieve both your emotional and physical goals.

What should one expect on a visit to a practitioner of reflexology?
A typical reflexology session runs from thirty to sixty minutes. Shoes and socks are removed, and the client is made comfortable, usually by sitting or reclining. Some reflexologists offer a foot bath at the beginning of the session, however, no lotions or oils are used. Pressure is applied in thumb-and-finger "walking" patterns, resulting in gentle stretching and massaging of specific zones of the hands and feet that are thought to correspond to body organs. Simple self-care instructions may be discussed at the completion of the session.

Are there any health conditions for which reflexology should be avoided?
Obviously, open sores to the hands and/or feet would be a reason to avoid reflexology. Acute injuries also must be handled with care. Anyone with active blood clots should avoid rubbing near the area of the clot. Burns, wounds, gout and infections to the hands or feet should also limit the use of reflexology. Lower extremity swelling or chronic skin changes that are a result of vascular problems to the feet should also limit this form of therapy. Recent removal of a cancerous tumor or other surgical procedures, such as wart removal, also make reflexology inadvisable. There is some evidence that rubbing of the feet during pregnancy might stimulate contractions, and so should be avoided in the later stages of pregnancy.
