What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is an age-old therapy based on the principle that the organs, glands and systems are reflected on the feet and hands – known as reflex points. For example, when you treat the big toes by applying gentle pressure, there is a related effect in the head; treating the whole foot can have a relaxing and healing effect on the whole body.
The Benefits of Reflexology
Reflexology can be an important part of keeping and feeling well. A relaxing and soothing treatment which helps correct imbalances throughout the body and can release energy blocks, the benefits include:
- Reduces feelings of stress
- Can induce a deep state of relaxation for mind and body
- Soothes the nervous system
- Encourages elimination of waste and toxins
- Improves circulation to all systems of the body
- Revitalises energy
- Reflexology can also assist in releasing emotional blockages
What a typical Treatment Session entails
An aroma foot spa will be offered prior to treatment which involves working on the reflex points in the feet using special massage techniques. The feet and lower legs need to be bare for this treatment which is given sitting down. For maximum benefit, four or five sessions are recommended.
Treatment sessions usually last for 1 hour and cost £25
