Reflexology is a holistic therapy, which is carried out on the feet or hands and aims to induce the body to restore balance, reduce stress and promote general health and wellbeing. It has been used successfully for thousands of years by cultures from all around the world. It is based on the idea that the feet are mini maps of the body and that there are points or reflexes on the feet which relate to the vital organs, glands or structures of the body. For example, in reflexology, the big toe is the head and at the base of the big toe are reflexes for the neck.
Reflexology treatments are suitable for all ages and can help to boost energy, strengthen the immune system and create a stronger body and a calmer mind.
