Reflexology is based on the principle that vital pathways of information connect our entire body and terminate at tiny reflexology points found on the feet, hands and face and ears. If our natural harmony becomes imbalanced – perhaps due to too much stress, poor nutrition or unhealthy lifestyles – then our information network can get congested and the interconnectedness and intricate balance of our system is lost. Our body and mind can feel under strain, stress may increase and an infinite range of symptoms of ill health may occur, both emotionally and physically.
As a Reflexologist, I work carefully to clear specific congested reflexology points by using finger and thumb techniques and gently applied pressure which is similar to massage. The body experiences relief from stress, anxiety and tension and is supported to return to its natural holistic balance. When our bodies are working harmoniously as it should, we feel happy, healthy and revitalised.
Additional benefits may include:
- Feelings of deep relaxation
- Improved mood
- Improved sleep
- A general sense of health and well-being
Reflexologists treat people with an infinite number of medical conditions but they do not claim to cure. Rather, Reflexology stimulates the body’s intricate natural balancing mechanisms so that our own body does the healing work.
