Dating to Ancient Egypt, India and China, reflexology is the therapeutic application of touch to specific areas of the hands and feet to improve health and wellbeing, encouraging the body to balance and heal itself. It can be received by anyone at any age, from newborn babies to those receiving end of life care, and everyone in between. It is deeply relaxing and improves both cardiovascular and lymphatic circulation, releases congestion, and promotes flow of energy and balance.
After a gentle foot massage to relax the muscles, joints and connective tissues in your feet, reflexology involves applying finger/thumb pressure to specific points throughout all surfaces of your feet and toes, which it is believed link to the organs and structures of the body within the same zone, as well as your emotional health.
Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, considering both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your well-being. Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure disease, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments. Examples of use include:-
Anxiety , stress & depression
Muscular and joint pain
Alleviating pregnancy symptoms
Support during labour
End of life care
