Reflexology is a holistic, gentle and effective therapy that is based on the principle that there are reflex points on the hands, feet and ears that correspond to the organs, limbs, muscles and glands in the body. The reflexes are worked using a variety of massage techniques using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles to bring about balance and harmony in all the body systems. The aim of the treatment is to lift and restore the whole body to health by facilitating the body’s own healing ability.
Reflexology is profoundly relaxing and can be used by clients of all ages and states of health. It can also be used in conjunction with other medical treatments. It’s like having a tune-up for your whole body!
Reflexology works to balance and harmonise all the body systems, so most health conditions can be improved with regular treatments. Musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems (such as IBS), anxiety/depression, respiratory issues such as asthma, hormonal/menstrual issues and stress are just a few conditions that can be improved using reflexology.
All clients need remove is shoes and socks/stockings. Typically the feet will be worked, but the hands and ears may be included. Even ticklish people can try it – the pressure is gentle but firm and relaxing.
*If you are pregnant, you may still be able to be treated from the second trimester onwards but consult your doctor first.
