Reflexology is a non-invasive complementary therapy that applies a gentle application of pressure to the various zones of the feet. Stimulating the reflex points helps to promote relaxation, supports the body’s natural healing processes, assists in the removal of toxins with improved circulation, and restores our overall sense of health and well-being.
The origins of Reflexology date back thousands of years and are based on the belief that each area of the body is represented by an area on the foot, hand or face. When a person is experiencing prolonged periods of stress, our vital energy or Qi may become blocked, leading to imbalances through these different points and consequently systems of the body. Reflexology can support here by carefully massaging and manipulating the specific areas of imbalance, which in turn help to calm the central nervous system, promote a deep sense of relaxation and allow all systems of the body to work together and to their optimum ability, maintaining homeostasis.
