Reflexology uses gentle touch techniques to stimulate ‘reflex’ points on the feet. Each of these points relates to a specific part of the body. After illness, stress or injury, the body is in a state of imbalance and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing healing. The thumb is pressed onto each reflex and any sensation of tenderness indicates congestion in that area. By stimulating any sluggish areas, Reflexology can help restore and maintain overall balance and encourage natural healing. It is also deeply relaxing, alleviating stress at all levels.
Whilst most effective when performed on the feet, treatment can also be given on the hands, face or ears, and can safely be used in conjunction with prescribed medication.
