REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology Therapy

Reflexology is over 2000 years old.  Hand and foot  therapy has been practised in China and Egypt as long ago as 2330 B.C.  and a form of foot therapy has also been practised by the North American  Indian tribes for hundreds of years . 

In Reflexology the reflexes on the  hand and feet mirror the body.   Dr William Fitzgerald developed  Zone Therapy  which divided the hands and feet into zones creating a  systemised treatment for the feet.  

A reflexology session involves the therapist using the thumb and fingers to stimulate the reflexes on the feet, hands and face.  While receiving reflexology,  it may induce a very deep state of relaxation, leading to reduced tension, improved circulation and processing towards homeostasis - returning the body to its natural balance. 

Other benefits are it may - relieve mental stress, improve sleep, relax muscles and reduce muscular pain, improve digestion, increase mental alertness and clarity, stabilise emotions and improve energy levels. 

Reflexology works holistically  - the body, mind and the spirit.
