Why Reflexology?

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary therapy that applies pressure to reflex points on the hands, face and feet to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanism. Through a variety of techniques, reflexology will probe, stimulate and massage these reflex points which can lead to a number of positive outcomes for the client.

These outcomes may include:

  • A deep sense of relaxation
  • Reduced tension which can help improve circulation following improved blood flow
  • Reduced stress due to relaxation and a more balanced emotional state
  • Detoxification of the body through improved lymphatic drainage as any build up of waste is reduced and eliminated
  • A return to a natural state of equilibrium known as homeostasis

All of the above can combine to leave you feeling re-energised as balance is restored and the body’s natural healing process is able to function at an optimal level.

Reflexology is a holistic therapy that takes into consideration  the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual rather than focusing on a specific symptom. It is believed that all these aspects must be considered and worked with before a true sense of well-being can emerge.

Please note that reflexology is a complementary therapy and should not be seen as an alternative to western medicine.
