What is reflexology?

ReflexologyReflexology is a therapy that involves applying pressure on the feet or hands in order to help with problems elsewhere in the body.

Each reflex point in the foot is connected to an organ and part of the body. By working on a particular point we aim to stimulate energy by a reflex action to a related muscle or organ, therefore encouraging healing.

The treatment is relaxing and can also help alleviate tension and stress. The therapy has a cumulative effect and so for maximum benefit we recommend our patients undertake a course of treatments although some prefer to just have a one off session as a calming treat.


How does it work?

Our bodies are divided into 10 longitudinal reflex zones/energy pathways running the whole length of the body. Energy is constantly running up and down these pathways but they become blocked by disease or other physical imbalance. Reflexology will stimulate the organs that relate to that area and attempt to rebalance your system by removing the blockage.

Once your body is in-tune it is sensible to have maintenance treatments.
