Reflexology is a popular and relaxing holistic treatment based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet, are connected to corresponding areas throughout the body. In this way, the feet can be potentially seen as a "map" of the body.
Reflexologists work on the reflexes with their thumbs and fingers using specialised massage techniques, said to help imbalances throughout the body,
Everyone can enjoy the benefits of reflexology.
What happens during a reflexology treatment?
A reflexology treatment lasts for approximately an hour. As it's only the feet that are being worked on, you remain fully clothed; simply removing shoes and socks.
Reflexology can also be carried out on hands as well as feet. The zones running through the feet also have corresponding zones in the hands too.
Potential benefits of reflexology:
* Relief from everyday stress, anxiety and tension
* Feelings of increased relaxation
* Improved Mood
* Aids Sleep
* An improved sense of Health and Well- being
Reflexology should not be used in place of conventional medical care, it complements medical care.
