Reflexology is a natural, complementary therapy which works on the principle that the major organ systems and anatomy of the body can be mapped on the feet or hands. By applying pressure and using massage to stimulate these reflex areas, the reflexologist is able to detect subtle changes in specific points or zones on the feet and clear congestion. In so doing the flow of energy is restored encouraging the body to heal from within.
Reflexology works on a mind-body connection, treating not only physical but mental conditions too and is extremely effective in improving sleep patterns. It boosts the blood and lymphatic circulation resulting in increased energy and improved immune system, better circulation and an overall feeling of well-being. Reflexology produces a deep state of relaxation and can be used as a treatment and prevention for a wide range of illnesses and complaints including stress, depression, respiratory problems, IBS and digestive disorders, headaches, migraines, menstrual problems, back and neck problems to name but a few.
