What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy which helps the body to restore its natural balance.
It is based on the principle that all organs, glands, muscles, bones and body systems are represented by reflexes on the feet, lower legs, face, ears and hands.
When specific massage pressure techniques are applied to these nerve reflexes, circulation is improved to the relevant areas and the body can begin its own healing process.
Any imbalances in the body systems can be identified and worked on in order that the physical, hormonal or emotional blockages can be released.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy which treats the whole person, allowing the body to fall into a deeply relaxed state and generate a feeling of improved well-being. It can be used adjacent to medical care.
A properly trained Reflexologist will not claim to diagnose, prescribe medication nor claim a cure.
