Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary therapy. It was used by early civilisations as a healing method, although it has only been recognised in Europe and America since the 1960s. The therapy is based on the premise that every part of the body has a corresponding reflex in the foot (and hand). Working these reflexes affects the relevant area in the body and rebalances those that need it. Stress is one of the main complaints of our age. It is one of the main contributors to many of the ailments we suffer today. By balancing the body's functions, the body is better able to release stress and tensions.
Reflexologists can ease the symptoms of many conditions. As well as easing stress it can help with pain management and stimulates the body's own healing resources. It works on the nervous system, the immune system, rebalances the endocrine system and encourages movement in the circulatory and elimination systems. The treatment is gentle and calming and will leave you in a state of profound relaxation. You will feel the tension leave your body to be replaced by a sense of peace enabling you to carry on with your daily life with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
