Dating back 5,000 years to ancient Egypt, China and India, reflexology is an extremely effective complementary holistic treatment and massage, performed mainly on the feet but also on the hands.
There are more than 7,000 nerve endings in the human foot, and by targeting these nerve endings, reflexology can assist the flow of energy through the body to the areas affected by illness or stress.
Reflexology is a safe and natural holistic therapy and provides a wonderful way to support you through the stresses and strains of everyday life, helping to restore the body’s natural balance and treat illness and tension.
During the treatment specific pressure movements are applied to areas of the feet/hands known as reflexes, which correspond to specific organs of the body. By doing so circulation of the blood and lymph systems are stimulated, along with the nervous system and excretory and endocrine systems. It provides an MOT for the whole body and all systems can benefit as a result.
It is wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable therapy which can be used alongside existing therapies and treatments and is suitable for absolutely everyone. Adults, children and babies of all ages can benefit from reflexology.
