What is Adapted Reflextherapy (AdRx)?
This amazing technique was developed by Gunnel Berry a physiotherapist inspired to find solutions for people in chronic pain.
After attending the course with the amazing Gunnel Berry and can now incorporate Reflextherapy into my Reflexology treatments if required.
Combining a medical understanding of spinal injury with the principles of reflexology,
Adapted Reflextherapy (AdRx) is a non-invasive treatment for neuromusculoskeletal pain of short or long duration, high or low intensity. AdRx has been developed over ten years through treating thousands of people in pain within the NHS and private practice, reinforced by extensive desk research.
AdRx is a distinct form of treatment that is based on reflexology and is integrated with conventional physiotherapy. AdRx is used to detect and treat a spinal injury, which may contribute to pain in other parts of the body. In common with reflexology, AdRx involves the application of pressure to the skin of the feet (or hands). In contrast, an AdRx practitioner focuses specifically on treating the spine and related structures through stimulating spinal reflex points in the foot, using techniques that are unique to AdRx. The targeted approach means that AdRx treatments are usually of short duration, sometimes less than 10 minutes. By addressing the underlying issues, AdRx appears to encourage the body’s natural healing mechanisms to achieve sustainable recovery, even if the original injury was sustained many years previously.
Particularly for those with a whiplash injury and chronic pain, AdRx benefits:
• Pain relief
• Greater mobility
• Reduced tendency for symptoms to be triggered or exacerbated (irritability of symptoms)
• Reduced anxiety about the painful condition
• Overall improved body functioning
I have been going to Sarah for a few months as part of my self-care routine she has really helped me with my aches and pains which I have had for years.
