Reflexology is a powerful natural healing system for the body mind and soul. If you are feeling stressed, out of sorts or are simply looking for an effective therapy to complement conventional treatments, reflexology can help restore your body’s natural state of balance. Reflexology is a widely recognised therapy amongst GP's and other medical professionals.
Reflexology is an ancient form of healing which dates back almost 5,000 years. It is based on the theory that there are many reflex points on the soles of the feet (and palms of the hands) which correspond to specific organs, glands and areas of the body.
When pressure is applied to these reflex points it can promote the healthy function of that area of the body as well as allowing the increased perfusion of blood, aiding circulation and detoxification of chemicals within the body, restoring it to its natural wellbeing. This type of stimulation sends signals within the body to balance the nervous system, stimulate the production of endorphins reducing pain and stress and encourages the body’s natural healing processes.
Reflexology can help with various symptoms including:
Digestive problems (IBS)
Hormone imbalance (PMS)
Reflexology is a cumulative therapy and the full effects can be best seen with a series of treatments (usually 4-6) dependant on your needs.
