What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary therapy based on the principle that all the systems of the body are mapped out in reflex points on the feet, hands and ears. Tender or ‘gritty’ points indicate congestion in the corresponding area of the body.
During the treatment a state of deep relaxation is created in the body, interrupting the pattern of stress and bringing balance to the body and its systems where there is imbalance. Reflexology is a well established holistic therapy which treats the mind and body as a whole to achieve a state of general well-being.
What can Reflexology do for you?
When we are stressed our body’s defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease.
Medical doctors agree that many health issues today can be linked to stress. Reflexology supports the body to
- Improve sleep and mood.
- Relieve stress
Enhance wellbeing and many other benefits.
This gentle, non invasive therapy aims to encourage the body to tap in to its innate self healing abilities.
Reflexology is amazing
Reflexology is a form of bodywork that involves applying pressure to the feet to produce changes in pain and other benefits elsewhere in the body.
How Does Reflexology Work?
The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are certain points or “reflex areas” on the feet that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body.
By applying pressure to reflex areas, a reflexologist is said to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body area.
