Reflexology

Reflexologists use hands-on techniques to release or stimulate specific points on your feet.

Reflexologists use hands-on techniques to release or stimulate specific points on your feet. These points have been found to relate to the organs and systems of the body.

Tenderness at these points can indicate when things are out of balance in that organ or system and in need of some attention. The reflexologist works on these points to help restore harmony and optimise function.​

A good example of when things are out of balance is when you’ve been under prolonged stress and your ‘fight or flight’ nervous system is in overdrive. Glands which are responsible for producing stress hormones can become sensitive after awhile.

The reflexologist can identify these tender areas, which are mirrored at specific points on the feet. Releasing these points is believed to reduce the activity of the over stressed nervous system and increases activity of the ‘rest and digest’ nervous system. It’s one reason you feel so relaxed after a reflexology treatment.

How can it help me

Reflexology can help with the management of symptoms of conditions such as diabetes, premenstrual syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, sinusitis and anxiety. It can also help conditions affected by stress such as difficulties conceiving or problems sleeping. It’s contraindicated during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Is it safe?

Reflexology is sometimes used alongside medical treatments, often to help with managing symptoms of other treatments such chemotherapy. There are some conditions which it may make worse, so please check with your doctor if you’re being treated for a condition, before having reflexology.

It’s important to understand that a reflexologist can’t diagnose conditions or claim to cure a condition. Reflexology helps with managing symptoms related to some conditions and can enhance wellbeing, making medical treatment effects easier to cope with.

Please check with your doctor if you’re being treated for a condition, before having reflexology.

How long do sessions last and how do I book?

Reflexology treatments are for an hour and can be booked as a one off or periodically. Please attend at least 15 minutes prior to your first appointment to complete a health questionnaire. Don’t hesitate to contact the clinic if you have any questions or to speak with Chris about attending for reflexology.

I had 8 Physio sessions with my physio therapist Chris and he was most helpful and considerate throughout for all of my problems. He always gave good advise and posted exercises for me to do at home which helped immensely. What I saw of the Long Eaton Impact Physiotherapy place the therapists who work there were well equipped and trained to deal with any of your problems to re habilitate.

Chris was thoughtful, knowledgeable and prescribed a course of action that alleviated my back issues. They haven’t gone but its definitely manageable. Great people, great service.

From the minute I met my physio Chris Davenport I knew I had made the right decision to finally get my back pain sorted. He put my mind at ease and explained everything to me in great detail. My back felt so much better after just one session , it was a huge relief! Chris has also supported me in getting Occupational Health involved to help my back whilst at work . He was very friendly and supportive, I have already recommended him to other people!

I was also very impressed with the covid precautions put in place at the venue.

My First experience was with Chris Davenport on referral for hip and spine problems by my GP.

Two courses done and he recommended Hatha yoga to supplement his treatment and help me long term.

However before I could implement it lockdown came in so it was delayed until Autumn this year.

I signed (with Mariangela)not fully knowing or expecting much in the way of personal tailoring or yoga exercise to be relevant to my situation.

I needn’t have worried as the class of six is like minded and Mariangela caters (and cares) for us all. Bonus is it seems to be working; thanks Mariangela.

The covid care from all at LE clinic is first class and not uncomfortable allowing for windows open.

Reception staff always friendly with a smile.

All in all just the tonic

Impact physiotherapy (Long Eaton Chris Davenport) is excellent and lives up to its superb reputation. The exercises have been excellent in helping me manage my sciatica and arthritis and I will continue to do them in the future. I still have some pain but nothing like the intense spasms I was previously experiencing. Thank you Impact and Chris Davenport.

Very good.

My physio, Chris was excellent. I was quite distressed with sciatica issues, Chris was not only knowledgeable and skillful but was also calm and reassuring at a time when this was very much needed.

His massage and advice and stretching or exercise programmes set, all helped to get me back to living my life again. My sciatica issues are ongoing but I am managing things better then I thought possible before physio with Chris.

I injured my shoulder with a suspected torn rotor cuff (no idea if I’ve spelt that correctly). It was painful all the time and kept me awake at night. Chris my physio gave me simple exercises and treatment and it has so drastically improved my shoulder, I barely notice that there’s anything wrong with it. Chris is very knowledgeable, which has not always been my experience of physios.

I attended the practice to receive treatment for a shoulder issue. Chris was very knowledgeable, providing excellent detailed exercise sheets and undertaking small, helpful manipulations in the shoulder. I would have no hesitation in returning to this practice should the need arise.

I’ve attended impact physio for quite a few sessions and the reception staff have always been nice and friendly and so was Chris! Chris explained everything properly and in words I could understand, unlike other places I’d attended where they described what was wrong with my back in ‘professional terms’ that only they have had training to understand. Thankyou for all of you help!

I was referred to the Pride Park clinic by my GP after being diagnosed with a frozen shoulder. I saw two of your Physiotherapists- the first visit was with Phil & subsequent visits with Chris. Both were very gentle & professional & I was able to be signed off quicker than expected thanks to their ‘magic hands’. I would have no hesitation in recommending both of them

Our teenage son suffered a slipped disc and was in increasing pain so I booked him in to see Chris Davenport.

Following serious surgery I wanted to get back to cycling and running. Booking a Full Body MOT with Chris Davenport at Impact Physio worked a treat. Chris took time to understand the issues I had and how they affected my fitness. He developed a personal exercise schedule, remedial exercises for my knee injury and a plan for getting back running. His 4 week follow up provided an updated exercise schedule to continue my progression. The result is that I’m back cycling and running pain free and improving week by week. Thanks Chris and Impact Physio, I’m chuffed with how it went. Long Eaton Parkrun this weekend!

A huge thank you to the team at Impact for getting me through a difficult 6 months. Every time I visited Impact Chris was great at listening to my description of where I was feeling pain and the treatment I received always made things ten times better. Not only did Impact treat my physical ailments but they also provided emotional support and guidance in helping me to get the long term treatment I needed for recovery as well as helping me to look at changes I could make for long term success. Booking an appointment was an easy process and I always received emails with exercises we had discussed during an appointment within a day. I would definitely use Impact Physiotherapy again and would recommend their service to anyone.

I’ve had ‘lower back’ pain almost constantly for two years,it’s completely impacted my life, it’s affected my dancing which I love, my gym sessions, even walking, shopping, doing the house work, after seeing Chris who is totally professional, he taught me which muscle group was causing the pain, how to work with it on a daily basis, which things to avoid in the gym that were agrravating it, he’s taught me exercises that I can do at home (or away) and in the gym to strengthen the msucles, I’m like a different person, no longer in pain. I can’t thank Chris enough, he’s completely changed my life.

Having pulled a hamstring at work and being unable to walk for a few days,my wife booked me in with impact Physio.I was looking at being off work for about 2-3 months.On the day of my appointment,I was met by a pretty young lady who got me to walk away from her then back again a few times.I was then asked to lie on my back on the couch where a pair of expert hands gently massaged the delicate hamstring area.A bit of manipulation got me a bit of pain,causing me to jolt slightly, but I was expecting worse anyway.I was then asked to lie face down on the couch.My lower back was then massaged and manipulated.The whole session took probably 30 minutes.The physiotherapist was always talking to me,saying what she was going to do, and wether or not I would experience any pain or discomfort.She was very good at her job, and did it professionally.Within 2 weeks, I was back at work.If you need a physiotherapist, look no further than Impact Physio.They don't come cheap, but you pay for what you get,rather than get what you pay for.Mine was worth every penny.I will definitely use Impact Physio again if i need to.

Having long term back pain is  not easy and same goes for three discectomies. Initially my physiotherapist was chosen for me by a spinal surgeon and I went with his choice but after meeting Louise and going through her 1:1 sessions I ended up attending the Long Eaton clinic for the last six years. Louise has an impressive  knowledge base and will always find a way to keep you mobile even when you feel you won't ever be able to move normal . During the years we worked together on  my back  she attended many courses and conferences and her skills make it so that , somehow, we still rarely repeat an exercise and I am sure there are many more to discover.She worked her "magic" on me so many times that I now only trust her with my recovery from yet another discectomy. Due to her skills I  managed to lead a normal life, I was able to keep my job which can be quite strenuous , I travelled long distances by plane or car , basically kept active. My admiration for  Louise is endless. Not only she is an excellent physiotherapist and Pillates instructor, but she is  also a wonderful human being ,who in this day and age  has maintained empathy and compassion for the suffering of those around her. I wouldn't want to miss Laura and Sandy and the whole reception  team from this review . Thank you for your help and support over the years ladies! It is much appreciated.
