What is Reflexology?Reflexology is a deeply relaxing and re-energising therapy that work on the feet or hands enabling the body to heal itself. It is based on the principle that the feet form a mini-map of the body where all body systems can be accessed.
Congestion or tension in any part of the foot is held in the bone, soft tissue and fluids. By applying pressure to reflex points located in the feet (in some case the hands) crystalline deposits and tension may be dispersed relating to corresponding body tissues. The musculo-skeletal system relaxes, organs and glands are stimulated, and the blood and lymph circulation are improved so that released toxins can be eliminated, thus encouraging the body to heal itself.
Treatments may help you to cope with stress on a physical, mental and emotional level. Energy is cleared from body tissues enabling the release of “negative energy”. Physical toxins and mental and emotional energy held in the body’s tissues can therefore be cleared. It works to restore health to the entire being. Anyone can benefit from the clearing brought about by a treatment.
ResearchWhilst Reflexology works very well alongside conventional medecine, it should never be used in place of seeking medical advice. Reflexology does not treat or diagnose any specific medical disorder. Reflexologists are not qualified to diagnose and this is not the appropriate use of a treatment.
