PALLIATIVE CARE REFLEXOLOGY
Reflexology is widely used for people suffering from terminal illness to enhance their quality of life.
It is provided in many hospices, by charities and the NHS provides it in some care units.
When nearing the end of life, there is a multidisciplinary team to take care of different needs as they arise.
Reflexology is amazingly supportive therapy, and can often help clients feel calmer, more in control and in a better 'place' for when it comes to making decisions about their care in the final stages of life. It’s a form of self-care and it aids relaxation, reduces pain and decreases anxiety.
Despite the increasing personal wish to die at home, this is not always possible. So a reflexologist is also able to visit hospices and respite homes to deliver gentle treatment on the feet, hands or both. Patients should be encouraged to discuss with a doctor or nurse if reflexology is suitable and if it could be added to their care plan.
How is NEPIP treatment different?
Both feet are worked simultaneously. The NEPIP technique promotes communication between the nervous, endocrine and immune system and the mind. It is especially effective for anxiety and stress disorders. During your consultation, we can discuss whether you wish to combine reflexology with visualization or emotional freeing techniques.
Neurology – for the nervous system
Endocrinology – for the endocrine system
Psychology – for the mind and behaviour
Immunology – for the immune system
Pody is the Greek word for feet
