What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a holistic science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way. It can be used as a type of preventative maintenance as well as reacting to any new problems found at the time of the treatment. Each client is treated as an individual where their symptoms as well as the causes of their complaint can be worked through.
Many people use reflexology as a way of relaxing the mind and body and counteracting stress, at the same time many doctors, consultants and other health care professionals recognise reflexology as a well-established, respected and effective therapy. Reflexology is definite pain reducing effect. This maybe explained by the ability of this massage to help release endorphins which act as the body’s natural pain relieving agents.

Response to Reflexology
From the first session most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation. If we work on an alignment or a stressed body and mind, I would highly recommend few sessions to feel the full benefit and allow the body to naturally heal. When the mind is not in a stressed state the body can work on healing.
