Combining the benefits of Acupuncture and Reflexology

Vacuflex is unique in the field of complementary therapies. Through the use of modern technology, but without losing the human touch factor, Vacuflex maximises the body’s own healing potential by combining two of the world’s ancient and powerful methods of holistic practice; Reflexology and Meridian Therapy (Acupuncture) into one treatment.

Therapist Bev de Pons combines the benefit of a full reflexology treatment, plus the stimulation of all the major meridians in one hour session. Vacuflex uses a vacuum boot foot reflexology treatment together with a vacuum cupping treatment sequence along the acupuncture meridians.  Bev then completes the session with a manual reflexology massage.

Although Reflexology and Acupuncture are effective as separate treatments, practical experience has shown that when balancing the acupuncture meridians in conjunction with foot reflexology, the result is faster normalisation and healing throughout the body.

Possibly the most remarkable feature of a Vacuflex treatment is the discolouration that appears on the feet when the boots are removed. This is caused by the negative vacuum pressure and highlights areas of reflex and meridian congestion. The colours remain for approximately 15-30 seconds during which time Bev de Pons can “assess” and “interpret” what is reflected. Furthermore, the vacuum pressure delivers the treatment to all the reflexes and meridian points.

Vacuflex has proved successful in treating many varied conditions. Patients who have suffered a stroke have been treated with Vacuflex Concepts with very pleasing results. Usually they require numerous treatments in order to increase their oxygen levels, but it is advisable to wait until their initial reactions have been observed before commencing with subsequent treatments. The elimination experienced after the first treatment is often due to other conditions and congestions of various other systems, rather than the stroke itself.
