Reflexology is a safe complementary therapy technique which involves applying pressure to specific points mapped out on the feet which correspond to specific organs, nerves and glands in the body. Applying pressure to these points stimulates movement or a release of energy/chi to the corresponding organ. This in turn aims to promote homoeostasis or balance within the body.
As a treatment reflexology always aims to provide the space necessary for healing, allowing us to reconnect to our bodies. It is a non invasive relaxing treatment which works on relaxing the autonomic nervous system to promote deep relaxation and a sense of balance and wellbeing . The application of reflexology techniques can improve blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and release endorphins while working on an emotional, mental and physical level and can be very successful in addressing imbalances of the digestive and nervous system.
