Swim Club reflexology

Back to blog

Reflexology has recently been added to the Swim Club treatment list and involves a 60 minute stimulating foot massage to encourage balance, good health and relaxation.


What is reflexology?

Reflexology involves applying pressure to the feet through specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the foot, with the idea that applying pressure to specific areas affects a subtle and physical change to the body.

What is involved in a Swim Club reflexology treatment?

At Swim Club our reflexology treatment is designed to work all the zones of the body, with specialised techniques, to bring the body back to balance and health. The therapist walks their thumb across the foot and toes (a bit like a caterpillar) to stimulate the nerve ending pressure points. We currently have three trained reflexology therapists at Watergate Bay Hotel.

The 60 minute treatment includes a consultation, the treatment itself and a brief discussion afterwards. The treatment can be general or the therapist can work with you to target specific areas.


Why reflexology?

It’s all about preference. Reflexology promotes relaxation and can help to alleviate stress and anxiety. It’s designed as a treatment to balance the body and be enjoyable.

Reflexology is not recommended if you are pregnant, although Swim Club has lots of pregnancy-friendly treatments.
