reflexolog foot map, milngavie, glasgow

Providing care and symptom management for clients post cancer therapy this treatment addresses pain as one of the late long-term consequences in Cancer Survivors and addresses the causes of pain and how you  can be supported using a combination of Reflexology techniques.


Living with cancer can have both a physical and mental impact with heightened levels of stress, anxiety, pain, nausea and worry. Cancer survivorship is improving as a direct result of better screening, better management and more complex treatment regimes, but a cancer diagnosis can mean coping with both physical and psychological symptoms after the end of active treatment.

These effects may appear years after the end of treatments and can include:

Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy

Radiation Toxicity Induced Pain

Persistent Post-Surgical Pain

Pain due to Hormonal Therapy

Fascial Changes and Tissue Integrity



Managing Pain with Reflexology is a 60 minute treatment, which includes working the spine and brain reflexes on the feet to access the central nervous system. When our body is alert to a dangerous situation, it is the spinal nerves that receive the first message and relays that message to the brain.


Managing Pain with Reflexology can also help with other conditions listed below:

Diabetic Neuropathy

Multiple Sclerosis
