About Footage – Reflexology and Foot Care Ltd
Footage (pronounced “Foot – Arghe”) is a combination of the words foot and massage.
Director and Principal Consultant - Lesley Baxter in mid 2008, formed the company as she finished her Diploma in Reflexology.
Lesley studied the Ingham Method of Reflexology under Shelley Monrad of Aromaflex, Nelson, New Zealand. Aromaflex is one of only two private training institutions accredited by the NZQA. Shelley has practiced Reflexology and Aromatherapy in the United Kingdom and New Zealand for over 18 years.
For over a decade, Lesley suffered with back pain that would wake her each night between 2 and 3am. She was unable to return to sleep unless she took painkillers. She tried everything to find out what was causing the pain and to manage it, from getting an MRI scan through the specialist, to having sessions with physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, and massages.
Then in 2005 Lesley treated herself to a weekly foot massage session of reflexology, purely for relaxation. A few weeks after having approximately 10 sessions, Lesley awoke one morning and found she had slept all night and was without back pain. She has remained pain free ever since.
Lesley decided to train as a reflexologist so she could share with others the benefits of this wonderful modality.
What is Reflexology?
Reflexology works with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to most of the organs, glands, systems and anatomy of the body.
Reflexology is a unique method of massage that applies pressure using the thumbs and fingers to these reflexes to help the body regain and maintain harmony and balance (homeostasis).
Reflexology promotes relaxation which helps the body return to a state of equilibrium or homeostasis where circulation can flow unimpeded to supply nutrients and oxygen to the cells.
This helps stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes which is a powerful tool in relieving many disorders.
