Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex points within each of ten zones on the feet and hands that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body. These reflex points affect and are affected by all parts of the body and Reflexology is a unique method of using thumb and fingers to stimulate the reflex points. This helps to restore balance within the body, encouraging our own natural healing potential. The therapy also helps to improve blood supply and nerve function to normalise and maintain the balance in and between our body’s systems.
Reflexology is an holistic approach to health, treating the body physically, mentally and spiritually.
Reflexology can help with relaxation, improves mood, aids sleep, helps relieve tension and improves a sense of well-being. It may help with skin problems, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, stress-related disorders and joint & muscular pain.
Reflexology is a non-invasive therapy, which involves use of gentle massage and pressure applied by the thumb and fingers to the reflex points of each foot. A comfortable couch is provided and you will only be asked to remove your shoes and socks or tights. The first session lasts for approximately one and a quarter hours and involves the practitioner taking a general medical history, background and lifestyle information, which is treated in the strictest confidence. This is followed by your Reflexology treatment. Follow-up sessions last for around 1 hour.
