Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops and sides of the feet are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way, the feet can been seen as a map of the body.
During a Reflexology treatment, the reflexes will be worked on with thumbs and fingers, using specialised massage techniques to help correct imbalances throughout the body and help release blocked energy.
Benefits of Reflexology include:
Feelings of deep relaxation
Increased energy levels
The release of endorphins, the body’s feel good hormones (which can also provide pain relief)
More efficient removal of impurities and toxins
A stronger immune system
A sense that the whole body is better balanced and in harmony
A course of regular reflexology treatments is recommended but not essential.
