Reflexology is a natural healing technique based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet, and ears that correspond to every part, organ, and gland of the body. Through an application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body.
Reflexology is a natural holistic therapy that helps to bring the body back into balance and promote healing. By unblocking any congestion in the natural energy flows throughout our bodies, reflexology aims to restore the functional and emotional status-quo.
Practised for thousands of years, reflexology is a holistic therapy using ancient Chinese massage techniques that target specific pressure points primarily, on the hands and feet.
In simple form, reflexology is ‘a combination of acupressure, energy work, and massage all-in-one. It works to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, releases built-up tension in your body and helps the body to detoxify so it can be restored to its natural state of calm and equilibrium.

Quite often our bodies are thrown out of balance, and we have to deal with the unwanted stresses of everyday life. Reflexology works to restore to those imbalances, to get you and your body back on a healthy, even keel.
The Chinese believe that reflexology stimulates the body into healing itself by improving circulation, reducing stress, pain and restoring natural balance.
There are thousands of pressure points and nerve endings in the feet, hands, and ears, that each corresponds to a particular part of the body. There are in fact 7,000 nerve endings found in the human foot. When these areas are targeted specifically during a reflexology treatment, this stimulation will work to restore unbalanced energy levels as well as helping to heal a whole host of niggling health ailments.
