Reflexology

Reflexology is a natural healing therapy originating in Egypt and China around 2000 BC. It is a holistic therapy that works on the principle that the feet mirror the body and the practitioner applies pressure to all parts of the feet thus stimulating the 7,000 nerve endings.

In the modern world stress is a factor in the development of most illnesses and diseases. Stress weakens the immune system, making the body more susceptible to illness. Conventional medical treatment focuses on symptoms and attempts to relieve them, however Reflexology can complement conventional treatment. It can be effective if drugs are not working for you or if you prefer to avoid them because of unpleasant side effects. Because Reflexology is a ‘holistic’ therapy it treats the whole person via the feet, bringing all the body systems and energy flow into balance and correcting the negative factors involved in the disease process: congestion, inflammation and tension. Reflexology encourages the healing process to begin, the healing power of hands on treatment creates the environment through which self-healing can occur.
