What is Reflexology?
Every organ of the body is reflected in the feet and hands. By working these reflexes points it is possible to promote greater health and well-being.
There are reflexes in the feet relative to each and every organ and all parts of the body. Reflexology is the practice of stimulating parts of the feet to encourage a beneficial effect on other parts of the body. Reflexology can help many health problems in a natural way Reflexology is a renewal and maintenance programme for the body. It not only aids recovery but helps the body to maintain health. It is not necessary to have a ‘symptom’ to benefit from reflexology.
Beyond the feel-good effects of the treatment, the practice and purpose go deeper than the skin and muscles. Kneading the soft fleshy ball of the foot, pulling on the toes, tracing around the heel and pushing deep into the arch are just a few of the movements you’ll experience during a treatment.
Reflexology uses a targeted, pressure-point massage to restore the flow of energy throughout the body. The treatment usually focuses on the feet, but it can also include the hands and ears.
