Reflexology is a complementary therapy that works on both mental and physical issues. It uses gentle pressure to the reflex areas of the feet bringing about a sense of deep relaxation, allowing the body to heal itself.
The theory behind Reflexology is that the entire body is connected to one of the reflex areas in the feet via the nervous system, by stimulating this area using specialised massage techniques you can create a response in the corresponding body part.
I firmly believe that stress has a massive impact on every system in the body and by eliminating stress from our lives we can become much healthier both mentally and physically.
Reflexology alleviates the effects of stress by inducing deep relaxation, allowing the nervous system to calm and function more efficiently. Circulation then flows smoothly, blood flow is improved allowing oxygen to reach all the cells more effectively. Our ‘fight or flight’ system is turned-off and the body reaches homeostasis allowing healing to take place. The client is then able to experience a sense of well-being on all levels.
