An ancient Eastern healing tradition based on the principle that all parts of our body are connected by energy pathways which end in the hands, feet and head.
A reflexology treatment uses pressure massage on specific areas of the feet to promote healing in the corresponding organs, glands and structures.
This releases areas of tension and helps energy flow more freely throughout your body.
How Reflexology Works
‘Reflexology is the study and practice of treating reflex points and areas in the feet and hands that relate to corresponding parts of the body. Using precise hand and finger techniques a reflexologist can improve circulation, induce relaxation, and enable homeostasis. These three outcomes can activate the body’s own healing systems to heal and prevent ill health’

Following illness, injury or stress, vital energy pathways in the body are blocked preventing the body from functioning optimally. Reflexology helps unblock these pathways by ridding the body of toxins and improving circulation. This restores the body’s equilibrium and encourages healing. These benefits are recognised by the medical profession, with many GPs now referring patients for reflexology as a complement to conventional medicine.
