Reflexology is an holistic treatment based on the principle that there are several reflex points on the hands and feet that are relative to all organs, functions and parts of the human body.
The therapist uses the pressure points on the hands and feet to help unblock the energy pathways, eliminate toxins and encourage the body to achieve a sense of balance and well being.
The therapist will often concentrate on the feet as these are regarded as being more responsive to treatment.
Reflexology is often accompanied by a light massage to the feet and lower legs to aid the relaxation process.
Reflexology may help to reduce stress, relax mind & body and improve various conditions including nausea, tension, fatigue, pain and sleeplessness.
