What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a non-invasive holistic modality based on the theory that reflex points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body. When pressure is applied to these reflexes, it stimulates the movement of energy along nerve channels, improving circulation and bringing balance (homeostasis) to the body. It creates deep relaxation which promotes healing on both a physical and emotional level. There are thousands of nerve endings in the human foot and each of these is a reflex point that corresponds to a part of the body. As reflex points are stimulated, care is taken to cover all of them to ensure that the treatment is comprehensive and therefore a holistic treatment for the whole body. It is great for all ages.

Sessions generally last an hour. It is a clothed session with only shoes and socks removed. Essential oils can be incorporated if you wish.
Reflexology is not a substitute for medical care; if you are experiencing any specific medical problem you should seek medical help.

History of Reflexology:
Reflexology has been used for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese and Egyptians documented practices similar to reflexology as a treatment for certain afflictions. In the late 1800’s neurological studies in England and Germany provided the scientific basis for the development of modern Reflexology. Foot Reflexology as it is known today was developed by Eunice Ingham (1889-1974) of the United States. Ingham combined a theory called Zone Therapy with compression massage of the feet, and created foot reflexology charts.
