What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is wonderful - a relaxing, healing therapy. It is an ancient healing art dating back to about 2,500 BC and is now becoming one of the most popular complementary therapies available.
Relexology is a holistic therapy which treats the whole person, body, mind and spirit and not just the symptoms.
A reflexologist uses her hands applying gentle but firm pressure and massage techniques to the feet usually inducing a state of deep relaxation.
Reflex areas on the feet correspond to every part of the body, so by applying pressure to these reflexes, the whole body can be treated.
Reflexology is comfortable, safe, gentle and thoroughly enjoyable, without being ticklish.
Who can benefit from Reflexology?
Most people! People of any age, or sex - the elderly, women, men, teenagers, childen and babies may all gain positive benefits from reflexology.
How can Reflexology help?
Doctors now estimate that 75% of illnesses are stress-related. Stress has a huge impact on the functioning of the whole body which can have serious short and long-term effects.
Many conditions can be influenced by how stressed we feel, for example, poor memory or concentration, persistent headaches, difficulty sleeping, digestive problems, fertility issues.
Reflexology may help to alleviate stress - helping to balance our bodily systems, relaxing mind and body and leaving the patient with an increased sense of well-being along with feelings of peace and tranquility.
