What is Reflexology ?

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes

in the hands, feet and ears that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body.

 

Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body.

 

In ancient times we stimulated reflexes naturally by walking barefoot over rocks, stones and rough ground, or by using our hands more often to climb, build or work.

In today’s modern world we have lost much of nature’s way of maintaining a balanced and healthy equilibrium.  Reflexology helps to restore this balance and promote natural health and vitality.

 

Today we are exposed to high levels of stress in our jobs, our homes and travels. Stress is without a doubt one of the main causes of physical and mental pain and suffering, as well as contributing to  making symptoms of other diseases or conditions much worse. Reflexology is a great stress reducer, and is an all natural therapy which does not require  anything other than gentle manipulation of the reflexes on the feet to stimulate the body's natural  healing mechanisms.

 

Reflexology has proven highly successful over time to relieve symptoms or ease pain or discomfort that have manifested themselves physically in the body -  either as a result of stress, trauma or  disease.
