Reflexology reaches as far back to Ancient Egypt, India & China. It is a therapy that treats the whole person, not just the symptoms that they may be experiencing. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is usually in a state of “imbalance”. Vital energy pathways are blocked which prevents the body from functioning effectively. In Reflexology the feet are a “minimap” of the body and by applying pressure to the reflexes, a reflexologist may support the body to heal itself. The aim of reflexology is to encourage the body to work naturally to create a state of “Homeostasis” – a balancing of the body.
Reflexology may be effective both on a personal level, such as relaxation of the day-to-day stresses and strains and may bring relief to the following:
Stress & Anxiety
Many people, after completing a course of treatment for a specific condition, continue with regular treatments to maintain their general health and well-being. A medium pressure is applied in a specific sequence all over the feet. It does not tickle and clients often fall asleep during the treatment.
Please note, if you have any contagious infection such as verruca, athlete’s foot, nail infection, ring-worm, you will not be able to have this treatment at this time.
