If you'd like to know more about reflexology then please continue to read on.
Reflexology is a non- invasive, relaxing natural healing art, it is based on the principle that there are reflexes on the hands and feet that correspond to every part of the body.
Reflexology works by using a combination of precise movements, combining massage, pressure points, and manipulation of the feet which, in turn, allows the body to start to heal itself.
Reflexology can help to relieve stress and tension, boosts circulation, revitalize energy and cleanse the body of toxins and impurities.
It can be used for relaxation or to help with specific ailments. Reflexology is used to restore the natural balance of your body.
What happens during a treatment?
The treatment is carried out on bare feet, while the client (fully clothed) relaxes, usually on a treatment couch. It is a painless, natural, relaxing treatment.
The treatment starts off with a light foot massage, followed by the reflexology treatment and ends with a warm wax foot massage.
The room can be lit or dimmed to suit your preference.
Reflexology helps to relax the body to relieve stress which in turn may help with many conditions such as:-
