What is Reflexology?
Our feet are very sensitive – they contain several thousand nerve endings. Blood and Lymph flow easily down the leg to the foot but because of gravity it is more difficult for waste matter to travel back up to be eliminated and tiny deposits can accumulate on the nerve endings in the feet. This is more likely to occur following illness, stress, injury or disease, as the body is in a state of “imbalance” and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively.
Through Reflexology, these imbalances and blockages can be detected and worked on, thus restoring the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased, and circulation and elimination is improved. The body is encouraged to heal itself at it’s own pace.
For Health & Well-being
Reflexology is a holistic therapy which treats the whole person, not the symptoms of disease and most people benefit from treatment. The therapy brings relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, and is suitable for all ages. Once your body is in tune, it is wise to have regular treatments in order to help maintain health and well being.
How does it work?
A first visit involves taking notes on your medical background, followed by the treatment, during which problem areas are noted. There may be temporarily sensitive areas but for the most part Reflexology is pleasant and soothing. Reflexology will relax you, while stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms. A treatment takes just under an hour. The Association of Reflexolgists recommends four to six weekly treatments for improvement to chronic illness or well-being.
