Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic healing technique whereby pressure is applied to precise reflex points on the feet . The reflex areas on the soles, sides and top of the feet correspond with all parts of the body. Therefore the foot maps the body.
It is a non-invasive, gentle therapy, perfect for all ages, from babies through to older people and for those with restricted mobility.
Reflexology aims to restore balance and energy flow to the whole body, stimulating underactive areas and calming overactive areas. One way this happens is by unblocking congestion that has accumulated in the nerve endings in the feet (and hands). By stimulating these nerve endings, signals to the brain and the rest of the body are improved.
Reflexology is a lovely therapy for helping our bodies deal with the negative impact of today’s hectic, modern way of life, and a perfect antidote to stress and anxiety!
Last, but not least, it gives you deeply relaxing time out for yourself!
It is a safe, gentle and natural therapy suitable for most people. However there are exceptions and if you are on medication or attending your doctor for serious conditions, written approval from your GP / specialist will be required prior to treatment. Please see the list of contra-indications.
