What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a natural holistic therapy that works on reflex areas of the feet or hands. The anatomy of the body is reflected in miniature on your feet and contains reflex zones that correspond to all the major organs and glands.

Applying pressure to these areas stimulates the body’s own healing process, freeing and releasing energy to restore balance and promote deep relaxation. 

What does it do for me?

Reflexology is suitable for all ages and may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. It helps us to cope on a physical, mental and emotional level thereby encouraging us to heal and maintain health in all areas of our lives. Reflexology has many of the same benefits as body massage with the additional benefit of being less intrusive. I use a refreshing natural mix of tea tree, peppermint and lemongrass or unscented oils / waxes for the treatment.

This age old traditional treatment has been practised in Asia for well over 2500 years but only in the 1930's Eunice Ingham developed the foot reflexology charts. These show how particular parts of the foot relate to other parts of the body. Less research than massage is available but proof that Reflexology may help with pain reduction.  Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) has also been used to explorewhat happens in the brain when pressure is applied to specifc reflex areas of the feet.
