What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and energising holistic therapy which treats a person as a whole rather than just the symptoms of anything you may have.
Reflexology is based on the principle that all organs, nerves, glands and parts of the body are connected to reflex areas or points found on the feet. When reflexes are stimulated during a treatment, it sends a signal through the nervous system which encourages the body to heal and clear any imbalances. This helps to ensure the body functions to it’s best ability and return to a balanced state.
Energy circulates all around our body; between our living cells and organs. When energy is blocked in an area, their can be a build up of crystal deposits in the feet which can sometimes be sensitive and tender during a treatment. Blockages can be caused by many reasons, some including stress, illness and injury.
When the reflexes are worked in the feet with pressure and massage techniques, it helps to disperse the crystals which release the blockage and allow the energy to circulate the body.
Reflexology relaxes the whole body, bringing about a general feeling of well-being which can also help to calm the mind and balance emotions.
