Reflexology is a complementary therapy which centres on the application of gentle pressure on certain points on the feet (also the lower leg, hands, face or ears). It is a non-invasive therapy which promotes deep relaxation and well-being.
What can Reflexology help with?
Reflexology is particularly good for treating conditions such as
- Muscular Pain
- Sleep disorders
How Does Reflexology Work?
The theory behind reflexology is that every organ and system within the body is represented by smaller peripheral areas, on the hands and feet for example. These body parts and ‘mapped’ on the feet, allowing the therapist to work on certain parts of the body by applying pressure to the corresponding part of the foot. The aim of reflexology is to restore the bodies natural balance. Reflexologists cannot diagnose or cure people, but what they can do is to assist the body in functioning as well as it can.
How Does it Feel?
Reflexology is a pleasant treatment to experience. Pressure varies from light to firm, but is always within your comfort levels. After a treatment, many people notice that they feel relaxed, less stressed or anxious. Lots of people also report improvements in their sleep too.
Reflexology is suitable for people of all ages, from small children onwards. There are very few people for whom reflexology would not be suitable.
