Reflexology is 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 stimulate healing in the corresponding organs, glands and structures of the body. This releases areas of tension and helps energy to flow more freely throughout your body and to assist in restoring homeostasis to the whole person.
Why choose Reflexology?
Reflexology may bring relief from a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. After you have completed a course of reflexology treatment for a specific condition, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments in order to maintain health and well-being.

How is a Reflexology treatment performed and what can I expect?
On the first visit, the reflexology practitioner will conduct a full personal consultation. This will take into consideration your past and present health and lifestyle. The consultation enables the treatment to be tailored to your specific needs. In some instances it may be necessary to gain your doctors permission before treatment can commence.
A reflexology treatment lasts for
approximately one hour.
As it is the feet which are generally treated you simply remove your socks and
shoes. You will be invited to sit or lie on a comfortable treatment chair or plinth. The reflexologist
will then use their hands to apply precise pressure techniques to the feet
treating specific points which correspond to all organs and systems of the body
based on your personal treatment plan. Following treatment, any significant
findings will be discussed with you. As the effects of reflexology are
cumulative, many people find it beneficial to continue with regular treatments.
