Reflexology is a form of complementary therapy which, through the massage of the feet, aims to promote wellness in other areas of the body.
Reflexology is a wholistic practice in which the application of pressure techniques are applied to reflex points on the feet and hands to bring about physiological changes within the body.
It encourages subtle healing energies to stimulate the body’s own innate healing process.
Reflex points on the feet correspond to all our bodily systems, thereby supporting the maintenance of good health and wellbeing.
Our feet are one of the most neglected parts of the body.
To a Reflexologist, the feet are a pathway to balancing the body’s energies and assisting in the management of many conditions.
Reflexology facilitates deep relaxation, reconnecting and calming nerve pathways within the central Nervous System.
A typical session lasts approximately one hour. The practitioner first asks detailed questions about your lifestyle, prior and current medical problems.
The practitioner relaxes the feet with gentle massage, and then works on the reflex points using specific techniques. Practitioners are well used to handling feet and apply sufficient pressure so that ticklishness should not be a problem.
