Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic therapy carried out on the feet and hands. It 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. These reflexes relate to the vital organs, glands or structures of the body through energetic channels of energy and zones. These zones or channels can easily become blocked through stress, emotions, trauma or illness, causing the body to function less efficiently. 

Reflexology aims to release tension and direct the free flow of energy throughout the body to bring about self-healing and normalise the functions of the body. By applying a gentle pressure to specific reflex points most commonly on the feet (but also the hands), I aim to induce a state of deep relaxation, enhance circulation and nerve supply, which are necessary to stimulate the body's own healing mechanism. 

What are the benefits of Reflexology?

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. Possible benefits can include the following:

  • Encourages the natural drainage of the lymphatic system

  • Reduces feeling of stress and tension

  • Calms and soothes

  • Improve circulation through the body and as a result may optimise the function of organs and cells

  • Enhance neural functioning - there are over 7,000 nerve endings on the feet which are stimulated during the treatment

  • Boost energy levels 

  • Gives recipient a feeling of wellbeing

  • Relaxes the body and mind

  • Assists body in maintaining a balanced states
