Reflexology

Reflexology
Reflexology is a gentle healing art dating back to ancient Egypt and China. Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the study and practice of treating points and areas on the feet and hands that relate to correspondeing parts of the body. Reflexology is a complementary therapy which not only relieves prevailing symptoms but assists in improving circulation, inducing relaxation and restoring homeostasis, the state of balance in the body. This activates the person's own healing systems to maintain well-being.

 Reflexology Treatment


A reflexology treatment lasts for approximately one hour. Clients are invited to remove their shoes and socks, and the reflexologist applies pressure to specific points on the feet which correspond to the organs and systems of the body.
Significant findings from the treatment are discussed with the client. It is generally advised to have regular treatments as the beneficial effects of reflexology are cumulative.

 Benefits of Reflexology


Reflexology is used to release blocked energy, thereby allowing the body to heal. It improves circulation of blood and lymph, eliminates toxins, relieves pain - including arthritis, migraine, back pain - sleep disorders, digestive and urinary tract disorders, balances hormones and improves fertility.
