Reflexology

Who can benefit?

Almost anyone can have Reflexology!  

From new-born babies to those who are in their later years. Reflexology can benefit those who need to relax, de-stress, relieve tension. It can help to improve your mood and aid sleep - it enables your body and it's systems to re-balance which can lead to an overall sense of wellbeing.

What does Reflexology do?

Most people have heard of reflexology and know that
it has something to do with the feet, but what exactly
does it do? 

  • It relieves stress and tension

  • It improves nerve and blood supply (restoring vital energy pathways)

  • It improves elimination of toxins and encourages the body to heal itself and brought back into balance.

Reflexology is a complimentary therapy that works on the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. By detecting and addressing any imbalances in these reflexes, reflexology enables your body to heal itself.  

Many people use it as a stand-alone treatment to help them cope with chronic conditions, but it can also be used alongside conventional medicine.

Although having a reflexology treatment can be an extremely relaxing experience, it is a modality in it’s own right and should not be confused with a foot massage.
 

Helping with Stress

Stress is a part of everyday life, there simply is no denying it. How it affects us varies from person to person.

In our modern lifestyles where we are always rushing
about - getting ready for work, finding a car parking space, catching the train with standing room only, getting to the office, rushing from one meeting to another, meeting deadlines, getting home late, dinner, bed, wake and
repeat, we end up in a state of 'fight or flight' or, the stress response. Our stress hormones rise and continue to rise
and this will impact negatively on the rest of the body.

 

Reflexology techniques will re-balance the body to counteract the effects of stress - you will be surprised how much better you will feel if you take steps to address the effects of stress.
