Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and energising holistic therapy which treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms of a problem area. Foot charts are used as a guide to apply pressure to specific areas.
The body is often in a state of imbalance, particularly after illness, injury or periods of stress, with these vital energy pathways blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. The aim of reflexology is to release any blockages and restore the free flow of energy and blood circulation to the whole body.
To achieve this a specific massage technique is applied to reflex areas in the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand technique which correspond to tissues, organs and systems throughout the entire body. Stimulating these reflexes encourages the body to heal itself, restoring and maintaining natural equilibrium, as well as promoting relaxation and a general sense of well being.
