Reflexology is an ancient therapy that comes from several civilizations such as India, Egypt and China. Feet, hands and face are seen as a mini-map of the body. The Reflexologist applies some pressure using thumbs, fingers and hands on reflex areas corresponding to organs, glands and body parts. The aim is to bring the body and the whole person into balance, on the mind, body and spirit levels getting rid any blockages of energy and encouraging self-healing.
Furthermore working on reflex areas generate positive responses to stimuli. The use of nerve pathways creates electro-chemical flows that have an effect on the internal part of the body and nervous system releasing chemicals that support health and well-being. Thus Reflexology helps your body release endorphins which are natural pain killers.
Safe, effective & non-intrusive holistic therapy suitable for all ages
There is an initial consultation for a 1st Treatment that lasts for a few minutes. This is to evaluate your overall health, life style and diet.
Reflexology is not recommended if you have deep vein thrombosis, are in your first 3 months of pregnancy, or directly after a surgery. Therefore, Reflexology can speed recovery if applied before a surgery. If you have a specific issue, always check with your doctor first. As a complementary therapy, Reflexology doesn’t replace conventional medicine and medication.
