What is reflexology?
Reflexology works on the whole person not just a specific organ or problem with the intention being to induce a state of balance and harmony throughout the body. It is a gentle therapy where pressure is applied to the feet with the intention of encouraging healing by the release of energy (Qi) to the corresponding organ, gland or body part.
Reflexology is based on the principle of reflex points on the feet and hands which reflect the structure, organs and glands in the body. A Reflexology treatment increases the circulation of blood and oxygen to the relevant areas and the body then begins its own natural healing process . The feet have over 7000 nerve endings all of which are worked during a treatment. It is a complimentary therapy often used alone side conventional medicine but never replacing western medicine.
This form of therapy has been used for Centuries in many cultures for its health benefits and general well being. Reflexology is a wonderful therapy which is normally done on the feet but can also be done on the hands
