Reflexology will help release anxiety, stress and pain. By receiving regular reflexology you can help prevent dis-ease.

Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet or hands. It works by understanding the reflex points on the feet or hands known as “pressure points” which then connect to the structure and function of all parts of the body, like the nervous system, organs and glands.

Reflexology is a touching therapy guided mainly by the thumb creeping along the foot or hand with “on–off” pressure to certain reflex points that is the cause of pain or illness, this then promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. The pressure applied should be firm and consistent ensuring it is comfortable for the client. Furthermore, the psychological benefits concerned with a one-to-one treatment involving physical contact should not be ignored.

Reflexology is capable of:

  • Inducing a state of deep relaxation

Reflexology is a holistic treatment, treating the mind body and spirit as one, so each treatment should be thorough completing all parts of the foot this in turn will complete all parts of the body and not just the responsive areas, altogether a full treatment should take about one hour in total.
