What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a healing therapy drawn from the assumption that there are reflex areas on the hands and feet that correspond to all parts of the body. (Taylor1998)

What will it do for me? Reflexology is a natural therapy that works on the nerve endings on the feet restoring health through enhanced nerve function, muscle tone and circulation. Restoring the body to health alleviates stress related disorders such as migraine, sinusitis, exhaustion, repeated colds and flu’s, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation as well as infertility to mention but a few. It is also fantastic to help maintain a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy, menopause and in old age.

What area are worked on during a treatment? Feet preferably/ Hands in certain situations.

What happens during a treatment?
  1. First the reflexologist will explain to you what reflexology is and how a treatment might affect you e.g. you might feel tired afterwards. Then you will be asked to sit down on a special reflexology recliner chair.
  2. The Reflexologist will then apply specific thumb movements exerting a certain amount of pressure on your feet. The treatment normally lasts for about an hour. Many people fall asleep during this time.
  3. Before you go home the Reflexologist will help you find ways to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Generally deep relaxation and a sense of wellbeing is experienced after a treatment.
