Reflexology is a natural therapy, based on the principle that areas on your feet and hands are connected by "reflexes" to each of the organs and structures in your body.

A reflex works like a light switch which when pressed, restores the flow of energy the bulb and it functions correctly. Likewise when a reflex is stimulated with gentle pressure, the flow of energy is restored to its corresponding organ, restoring balance.

Reflexology seeks to rebalance the flow of energy, or circulation, around your body, to enable it to heal itself.

Reflexology reduces stress by inducing a state of deep relaxation which revitalises energy and helps the body to rid itself of toxins.

Reflexology is also an excellent form of preventative care.

A Reflexologist cannot diagnose an illness or write a prescription for it - he or she will encourage your body to activate its own healing power.

Your treatment will consist of a relaxing foot soak and an even more relaxing foot massage. This is followed by a more specific, but very gentle, pressure on the reflex areas of your feet.

The hands may be treated if you are uncomfortable with having someone touching you feet, although being ticklish need not mean that you cannot have a treatment on your feet – mine are very very ticklish but I love my treatments!
