Reflexology is a powerful treatment used to stimulate the healing process, detox the body and encourage a better energy flow throughout. It works by bringing the body back into balance by releasing blocked energy and so correcting imbalances throughout the body and is particularly beneficial for stress related disorders.
It is a non-invasive therapy performed on the feet to provide benefits that are both physical and emotional. It is based on the principle that there are reflex zones in the feet which are linked by energy pathways to corresponding parts of the body and, when pressure is applied to special points on the feet, it stimulates the movement of energy along these pathways and can initiate a beneficial response in another area of the body, thereby stimulating the body to heal itself. Pressure is applied to the reflex areas on the feet using specific thumb and finger techniques.
A full reflexology treatment including a relaxing foot massage lasts for approximately 60 minutes and is performed on a treatment couch fully clothed, simply removing shoes and socks.
