Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and energising holistic therapy which treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms of disease.The body is often in a state of imbalance, particularly after illness, injury or periods of stress, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
The aim of reflexology is to release any blockages and restore the free flow of energy and blood circulation to the whole body. To achieve this a specific massage technique is applied to reflex areas in the feet (and sometimes the hands) which in theory correspond to tissues, organs and systems throughout the entire body. Stimulating these reflexes encourages the body to heal itself, restoring and maintaining natural equilibrium, as well as promoting relaxation and a general sense of well being.
For each person the application and the effect of the therapy is unique.
Reflexology also stimulates nervous reaction throughout the body. With an incredible 7,000 nerve endings in your feet, Reflexology helps send signals through the nervous system to the brain to regulate various organs and glands, therefore bringing the body and mind back into balance.
