What is reflexology?
Reflexology is an extremely effective complementary therapy whose origins can be traced back thousands of years to Egypt, India and China.
Reflexology is based on the principle that all organs, glands and systems of the body have reflex points which terminate at the hands and feet. Treatment is usually a wonderfully comfortable and very pleasant experience which is suitable for all ages.
Reflexology has been found to reduce stress and tension, relieve pain, improve bodily functions and generally restore the body to a better state, so improving physical and mental well being.
If treatment cannot be performed on the feet for medical, personal or cultural reasons then hand reflexology can be given as an alternative and is an equally effective treatment.
Reflexology is designed to help treat the person as a whole not just the prevailing symptoms of a presenting condition.
Reflexology is an immensely relaxing experience and after completing a course of Reflexology, many clients continue to have regular treatments in order to maintain health and well being.
Reflexology is not just recognized by those interested in alternative treatments and therapies. Many medical doctors and other healthcare professionals also recognize it as an effective therapeutic treatment. Some recommend it to their patients as a supplement to medical care.
