Reflexology is a complementary natural therapy that involves the application of pressure to specific points, known as reflexes, on the feet and hands to encourage the body to heal from within.
The treatment is based on the principle that the feet and hands contain ‘mini-maps’ of the whole body and that by applying pressure using the fingers or thumbs a reflexologist can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body. It is a powerful therapy that has a very positive effect on health and wellbeing. When a part of the body is not working at its best, the sensitive area will be found in the corresponding part of the foot or hand when pressure is applied to it.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy and treats the person’s mind, body and spirit as a whole, rather than just focusing on a set of symptoms that cause a specific problem. Holistic therapies take the emotional and spiritual being into account as well as the physical.
