Reflexology is a gentle, relaxing form of foot massage, originating from China over 5,000 years ago. It was also practised in Ancient Egypt.
Reflexology is based on the principle that there are points on the feet
(often referred to as reflex points) that correspond to all the glands,
organs, body systems and parts of the body.
It involves the therapist working on these points of the feet using either thumbs or fingers and by applying pressure to these points, activates the body’s own healing mechanism and clears any blocked pathways.
Our bodies have a wonderful self healing potential. Sadly this potential is not always reached, because the vital energy pathways become blocked
by stress, illness, injury and toxicity.
Reflexology, redresses the balance. It balances the body and brings the mind, body and spirit into harmony. It is used to relieve a range of stress related conditions such as headaches, indigestion, heart disease, insomnia and back pain.
