What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a complementary therapy that treats the WHOLE body. Every organ, structure and system of the body is mirrored in the feet and hands. The organs and structures are connected through a system of energy within the body which can become congested or blocked causing the body to function less effectively. Reflexology practitioners seek to relax the body so it can release tension and direct the free flow of energy throughout the body, thus encouraging normal bodily functions. A reflexology treatment will stimulate each individual’s natural healing process.
Reflexology is the most natural, non invasive (and drugless) therapy in addition to being a very powerful one. It has great preventative value because imbalances can be detected and corrected at an early stage, so it is not just for those with obvious health problems.
What can it treat?
The therapy is suitable for people of all ages, but should not be regarded as a ‘cure-all’. Most conditions can respond to reflexology treatment and these include muscle tension, menstrual | menopausal problems, improving circulation and relieving stress.
About the Treatments
An occasional course of treatment is a pleasant way of maintaining health and well being. The initial treatment will last a maximum of 1 and 1/2 hours, with subsequent treatments lasting 50 minutes.
The number of treatments required vary with individual needs.
