Reflexology is a holistic healing technique which uses reflex points and meridians on the feet to stimulate the body's natural healing ability, restoring balance to the body.
Reflexology works on the principle that all the organs, glands, systems and structures within the body are mirrored on the feet, by using a gentle massage and stimulation techniques and by applying pressure to the corresponding reflex points, blockages caused by illness or stress can be released, thus improving the persons health and state of wellbeing.
It has been shown to be effective for a range of conditions including: Digestive complaints, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalances, muscular pain and tension, post operative recovery and stress related conditions.
Reflexology is an extremely relaxing therapy which has been used for thousands of years throughout the world with quite remarkable results. As illness or stress can affect each person differently, not only the underlying causes are looked at but the person is treated as a whole. The emotional, physical and mental aspects of the person are also taken into consideration.
