Reflexology is the technique of applying gentle pressure to reflexes on the hands and feet in order to bring about;

  • A state of deep relaxation
  • To stimulate the body’s own healing processes
  • To Help you return to a state of balance and well being

Reflexology is a natural therapy that can also facilitate more vital energy, help boost the immune system and create a stronger body and mind.

Reflexology is a safe, natural therapy that helps to give the body just what it needs- that might be conceiving or carrying a baby to full term, a reduction in the symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome, or assistance in losing weight or in looking and feeling healthier.

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different parts of the feet, lower leg, hands or face correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

Reflexology may help with symptoms of:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Infertility
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Pre Menstrual Syndrome
  • The Menopause
  • Back Pain
  • High blood pressure/ Poor circulation
  • Feeling run down and tired

75% of disorders are thought to be linked to stress. Stress can have a number of very damaging physical effects on the body, especially the Hormonal (endocrine) system; raised blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, headaches, diabetes and digestive problems. Reflexology encourages the body to relax, enabling all the functions and systems in the body to work more efficiently.
