What is Reflexology?
There is evidence that Reflexology dates back to ancient Egypt (2,330 BC). It is a Science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and the hands, which correspond to all parts of the body
Pressure on these reflex areas will aim to restore and maintain fine-tuning of the delicate 'body machine'. This can be achieved through improvement of the blood supply, stimulation of the nerve impulses and relief from tension and stress
How does it work?
A fine-tuned 'body machine' will work at full capacity and put out maximum energy. 'Toxins' are not only absorbed in the bloodstream, from the environment and foods, but are created, all the time, by the body itself
Regular Reflexology treatments can support continuous removal of these detrimental substances by improving circulation in all body systems
How can reflexology help me?
Reflexology can be used to help restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium. This gentle therapy encourages the body to work naturally to restore its own healthy balance
Many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress. With the ever-increasing levels of stress, it is important people take more responsibility for their own health care needs
Reflexology can help us cope on a physical, mental and emotional level thereby encouraging us to maintain health in all areas of our lives
On the first visit, your reflexology practitioner will complete a health questionnaire reviewing your health history and lifestyle
You will then be asked to remove footwear and to recline on a couch. The reflexology practitioner will then use their hands to apply gentle pressure to the feet, the aim being to detect subtle changes in specific points on the feet, and by working on these points may affect the corresponding organ or system of the body
A treatment session usually lasts for about one hour. A course of treatment may be recommended depending on your body’s needs.
