Reflexology

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is an ancient holistic therapy that has roots in Egypt, India and China.  Holistic therapy means to consider the person as a whole (physical and emotional) and not just specific ailments or symptoms. It involves working pressure points in certain parts of the body to promote relaxation and wellbeing.  It is based on the theory that certain parts of the body (notably the feet, hands, ears and face) provide a microcosm (small replication) of the whole body and that imbalance in the body will show up in this small area.  In our clinic we primarily provide reflexology of the feet.  Assessing the feet both visually and through touch and working the feet in a systematic and controlled way, reflexology can help rebalance the body, reduce tension and provide an improved sense of wellbeing.

As a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AOR), you can be assured we have undergone high quality in-depth training and are committed to continue to learn and improve through high quality continuous professional development (CPD).

Who is it for?

Reflexology really is for almost EVERYBODY and in our clinic we see newborns to nonagenarians.  There are very small number of conditions that would prevent reflexology and we are happy to discuss your specific requirements.

Benefits

Reflexology does not claim to cure conditions and should never be used in place of medial treatment, and we would never dream of diagnosing medical conditions or prescribe treatments.  However, reflexology can complement traditional treatments by helping the body to restore it’s own balance naturally through a deep form of relaxation.  Specifically it can aid better sleep, help reduce tension, improve mood and increase overall sense of wellbeing.
