Anorexia and bulimia are disorders which can cause distress to sufferers and their families.
There can also be complication of malnutrition such as amenorrhoea, renal failure and potassium depletion.
Conventional treatments may include psychotherapy, medication and sometimes hospitalisation.
From my perspective as an alternative therapist clients presenting themselves for treatment require very careful analysis of their individual circumstances and condition before offering any treatment protocol as clients will present with a complex and often unique set of factors associated with their perceived needs and experiances.
Although it is impossible to generalise, a thread of a theme expressed by sufferers revolves around sensations of a lack of love and good feeling (particulary for themselves by themselves) guilt, anxiety, fear of relationships all contribute.
However, I have found a safe approach in using reflexology in the initial stages of treatment in order to ‘detox’ the body and mind, reduce stress, anxiety and depression and allow the client the space to develop confidence in the treatment and trust in me as therapist. This stage may be extensive depending on clients feedback, some clients may prefer to work only with reflexology and/or acupressure for all of their treatment.
Therapies such as reflexology, auricular and hand acupuncture may be effective in helping calm associated issues such as bloating, nausea, indigestion, IBS / colitis, bad skin, constipation and emotional problems.
In all cases the aim of treatment is to calm and soothe mind, body and spirit and strengthen movement of energy and a sense well being.
Depending on individual need treatment may be lengthy.
